Carlos highlights the barriers Latin Americans face in the United States.
What’s it like being a Latin American business owner? Carlos gives us the inside scoop on the objective and subjective barriers that make it a challenge. For starters, Latin American entrepreneurs face unique obstacles when it comes to the rule of law, predictable policies, and infrastructures that work. And then there's the subjective barrier of global mindset and cultural adjustments that are needed to thrive in a global economy.
Carlos talked about his experience growing up:
In his own words, "It's a story of socioeconomic diversity, the fact I grew up in an immigrant family, a very low middle class. Growing up there, you'll learn basic business principles." ~ Carlos Baradello.
From his turning point of attending a higher institution to receiving a full scholarship to do his masters in the Netherlands, Carlos's unique experiences have shaped his life in incredible ways.
The shift from native “local” to native “global”
"It's interesting you said from native analog to native digital. I'll say it paralleled from native local to native global. And today, I'll argue that people are born global for the most part." ~ Carlos Baradello.
As we explore the profound impact of digitalization, Carlos shares his insights on how it can help create new perspectives and bridge the gap between native analog and digital worlds.
The purpose of a degree in Latin America and other countries and how it differs or is similar from the experiences of an American student.
We had a great discussion about how education in Latin America differs from the United States. Carlos points out that degrees in America are often overpriced and not always the most effective method of learning, while in Latin America, a degree still carries significant weight.
"The system that allowed people to spend all those years in college and maintain a steady career afterward no longer exists. Therefore, people in this generation have no choice but to change their attitude toward college degrees, or else we're doomed." ~ Carlos Baradello.
