Ep. 78: Dr. Mary Ritz- Don’t take your opportunities for granted

Growing up in what she describes as Zimbabwe’s lowest rung in society, Dr. Mary Ritz was still encouraged by her parents to be a leader and innovator. The lessons Mary and all six of her siblings received have spurred each of them to make a difference in the world. In addition to starting her own consulting business, which now trains business leaders internationally, Mary mentors a group of “under 40’s” … who still struggle to follow their own dreams.

You’ll hear:

  • What allowed Mary and her siblings to escape a life of poverty in Zimbabwe
  • The obstacles she had to overcome to compete and succeed in education and business
  • How she encourages young people to discover their mission
  • Her advice to parents to help their children succeed, without putting too much pressure on them
  • Her model for how to keep businesses profitable and relevant
  • What she believes makes a great leader
