Imposter Syndrome: Opera Singer to CEO With Gabriel Wyner

Fri Jun 22 2018 (01:03:34)

Oprah Singer to CEO

The month after his record breaking 2017 Kickstarter ended, he suddenly realized how far out of my depth he had landed. One minute he was an Oprah Singer the next a CEO. He rapidly went from despair, to doing what real leaders do: Sending out calls for help and advisors.

There he realized that running a business was a matter of seeking the advice of others (who knew what he did not) and integrating it into an ongoing plan.


On this show we talk about learning languages and the myths we have about it, and how busting those myths will transform your leadership.


Our guest on this episode is Gabriel Wyner he is the author of Fluent Forever: How to learn any language fast and never forget it.

At the end of last year, he ran the most successful crowdfunding campaign for any app in history, doubling the previous record. He's now found himself running a software company that's creating the next generation of language learning products. But Gabriel's path into this role was anything but direct. 6 years ago, he was an opera singer, struggling to 'make it' in the music business in Vienna, Austria. His path from struggling musician to CEO of a successful software company makes him an 'accidental leader' - someone who doesn't set out to become a leader, and yet finds himself in that role regardless.
