Faisal Hoque is no stranger to the typical hurdles of life. After building a highly successful company in his late twenties, he learned that things don’t always work as anticipated when he was fired from the second company he opened.
Things only got worse when his twenty-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Faisal not only had to take care of his son throughout his illness, but he also had to find a way to rise up again in his career. These life experiences are what led Faisal to a journey of internal life reflections that revolved around overcoming the fear of failure.
