Humans with Josh Levent
A podcast for people who want the world to slow down and become more human.
Overcoming Failure: Meet Filmmaker & Entrepreneur Francis Rafal
My first guest is Francis Rafal, an Austrian filmmaker and entrepreneur. When I first met him in May I was struck by his playfulness. This is something that will come across in our conversation today, and what I think makes him deeply human.
The other thing that makes Francis human is his failure. He almost went bankrupt a couple of years ago, after dealing with several financial disasters in his business.
On today’s podcast:
Entrepreneurial from a young age
Shooting his first video, attending civil service and going to Train the Trainer classes
Studying physics and launching his first company
First real trouble: going almost bankrupt
Receiving support from his network and founding two more businesses
Working to make the world less polarized
