E22: Siamak Riahi on moving 14 times in 22+ years

"You're not a tree."
2

Siamak Riahi, Founder and CEO of Riahi Patents, likens the early days of his immigration journey to standing in the middle of a tornado and being thrown from one place to another by the strong winds.

Despite feeling that way in the early days, Siamak has gone on to move a whopping 14 times across different cities and from the United States to Canada.

He joins me on The Newcomers Podcast to chat about:

  • Underestimating our support system

  • The importance of community

  • How each move changes us

  • Switching from an academic career path to entrepreneurship

  • Dealing with the immigrant survival mentality, and more.

This was a masterclass on how to approach immigrating mentally, especially if you are moving to a new country at a much older age.

Enjoy!
