In this week’s episode of Fostering Change, Rob Scheer talks with Ed Hajim. Ed recounts in his memoir, ON THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED: An Unlikely Journey from the Orphanage to the Boardroom, how he grew-up mainly in orphanages and in foster homes with no consistent family or support system. Feeling at times lonely, angry, jealous and poor. YET, despite huge obstacles, Ed Hajim became a Wall Street executive, a business tycoon of the highest order.

Ed learned to survive, to keep himself strong and focused. And step by step, he turned his life around, even graduating from the University of Rochester and later Harvard Business School. Ed’s life is a rags to riches American success story on every level – he used his inner voice, his one constant to get ahead in business and create a stable-family, home-life as an adult.

Get ready to be inspired and learn from Ed as he shares insight on not being a victim of circumstance, using disadvantages as advantages and always asking what’s next ON THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED!
