Just Keep Pivoting

Season #3 Episode #55

Nyna is a role model and a pioneer for expat women around the world. As an expat woman herself, originally from India, Nyna identified an opportunity to do good work in the Bay Area by creating a space and community for mid-to-senior level expat and immigrant women professionals to gather, network, and learn from each other. Since starting her side-hustle-now full-time business in 2013, The Expat Woman has a community of 13,000 professionals around the globe and continues to grow. 

In this episode she shares: 

  1. How she pivoted her ‘in-person’ business to virtual events
  2. How she created The Expat Woman after moving to Northern California with her spouse and recognizing there were no professional networks for expat and immigrant women
  3. What she does to stay positive when life gets stressful (hint: gardening and long walks)
  4. How selling is a critical skill for any person (entrepreneur, professional, employee)
