In this episode, we explore Bernie’s incredible journey from growing up in New York City to self-funding his education to building confidence and achieving great success.
"I absolutely wanted to prove everybody wrong. And so it really was kind of like a blessing in disguise because I really wanted to prove them wrong. And I did."
We’ll learn how Bernie overcame his lack of confidence and hear about the importance of mentors and how they helped him find the courage to pursue his dreams. He talks about how his Cuban immigrant parents instilled in him a strong work ethic and how he funded his own undergraduate degree, which gave him a confidence boost. Plus, he’ll share how this experience triggered a shift in his perception that he can accomplish anything.
