Excerpt from this Podcast
Mo lived a freeing and a happy life in Bangladesh, but when he came with his family members to join his father in the States at 13 years old he had to take ESL classes to learn English. He had no idea what business he was going to open.
For a period of time he wanted to save money to start some sort of venture to create passive income. However, when he quit his day job he had no plan. There was absolutely no business idea in place, so he went traveling.
After some travels, he had several business ideas. He either wanted to get into real estate to get passive income, or start a life coach business. However, he quickly realized that starting a software company was his ultimate immigrant entrepreneur venture.
