Have you ever felt invisible?

Afrin Khan held herself back because she believed things like her name, her religion, plus being a woman and a person of color, would keep her invisible. Find out what spurred her to confront those beliefs in college and finally lean into the feeling that she belonged.

You’ll hear how the Universe instantly validated Afrin’s decision to leave the corporate world after maternity leave to become an entrepreneur. And you’ll hear the heart breaking moment a couple years later when Hurricane Sandy destroyed her home and paralyzed her industry in one fell swoop.

Learn what it took for Afrin to climb back to success, plus find out what she discovered about her concept of succeeding when she crossed “Work with Deepak Chopra” off her bucket list. Afrin also shares about her most recent dark night experience of losing her father during COVID, and tells us one of the last things he said to her that still fortifies and empowers her to keep moving forward.
