If you don’t know who Arlene Dickinson is, then shame on you!
She’s a Canadian venture capitalist (net worth of $80-million), humanitarian, and television star on Dragon’s Den and The Big Decision. She’s also a best-selling author of two books: Persuasion and All In.
In the following video, Arlene talks about the state of capitalism in North America and how unbalanced the system is.
Skip to 7:20 to hear about the day when a divorced and emotionally-battered Dickinson was told by a judge that she’d have to provide more than just love if she wanted to keep her kids.
Humble as ever, Arlene attributes a lot of her success to luck, despite the fact that she was driven to succeed by the most potent motivator on the planet: Parenthood.
What role do you think that luck plays in success?
