Don’t just hope for success.
Achieve greater success in life by developing …
Whether you are............
an individual native, migrant or immigrant; or,
the leader of a business, community or country.







with the author of the upcoming book…


I know you. You are motivated to become more successful – become a big success. You’re seeking that ‘edge’ that could help you achieve your greatness. You see successful people in the news and wonder how you too can break through. The key is to emulate the mindset of some of the most successful people around.

Immigrant professionals are some of the most successful people in the world – Albert Einstein, Alexander Hamilton, Henry Ford, Sergey Brin(Google), Ayn Rand, Elon Musk, Satya Nadella (Microsoft), George Soros, Rupert Murdoch, Ariana Huffington, Elie Wiesel and many others. Every one of us can achieve greater success by embracing elements of their mindset.

“Change your mindset, change your life.”

Join the pilot group to learn about the mindset of successful immigrant professionals and how you can embrace it to become more successful. The group coaching sessions are based on my upcoming book – THE IMMIGRANT MINDSET – with my co-author Dr. Marshall Goldsmith.

Whether you are an immigrant, in-country migrant (person who moved from one part of the country to another) or a local, you too can pick up elements of the successful immigrant professional’s mindset and achieve greater success.

Whether you are an employee in a business, a business owner, an entrepreneur or a community leader, you too can pick up the mindset of the successful immigrant professional and achieve greater success – see differently, believe different, think differently and achieve greater success.

Most people hope to achieve the success and rewards of these highly successful people but don’t know how. Yet others emulate observable behaviors (dress, mannerisms) but fail to get results. Yet others read about their behaviors (waking up early, reading every day) but fail to sustain the habits or get the results. The most effective attributes to emulate from successful people is their MINDSET – what they believe and value, what principles they live by and what they say to themselves. But, how do you find those out? That’s exactly what Ram did, speaking to over 100 successful immigrant professionals, including Nobel Prize winners, CEOs, entrepreneurs, techies, business people, non-techies, scientists, doctors and other professionals from across 35 countries – as research for his book.

  • 30% of America’s Nobel prizes won since 2000 were won by first-generation immigrants.
  • According to research by the New American Economy, 216 of the Fortune 500 companies were founded by first-generation immigrants or children of first-generation immigrants.
  • Over half the unicorn startups (companies valued at over one billion dollars) were started by first-generation immigrants.
  • More than half the startups in Silicon Valley, the most entrepreneurial region in the world, were started by first-generation immigrants.
  • A third of the physicians and a quarter of the dentists in America are immigrants.

Do you know some people who see opportunities all around them? You’re seeing the same things but don’t see the opportunities. I’m sure you have wondered why they see opportunities and you don’t. Some of the most successful people in the world are immigrant professionals. They not only have the immigrant mentality but also the professional’s mentality, giving them a unique immigrant professional mindset.
