March 8 is International Women's Day, a day where all nations recognize and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world!
To celebrate, we want to explore how women especially have bridged cultural gaps and differences to be successful in today’s multi-cultural world and marketplace.
In this episode, I talk to Shanna Kabatznick, who came to the United States from Ecuador as a young woman and stayed to start her family and build a successful career. Today she is a Sales Strategist with over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry and Founder and CEO of the community called FABWOMEN.

How Shanna responded when people asked her where she was from
What she did to adapt to the most personally challenging aspect of the U.S. culture
Her secret to bridging cultural gaps that made all the difference
How bridging cultural differences has played a direct role in what she does today
