by

Welcome to Brown People We Know, an interview podcast exploring non-traditional paths among the South Asian American diaspora. On this show we discuss third-culture identities and breaking the mold. Past guests include a Billboard-charting death metal guitarist, the model-turned-founder of Mango People Cosmetics, a ENT physician with 70+ cars (and a firetruck)! BPWK is syndicated to Rukus Ave Radio, the most-listened-to South Asian radio station worldwide, and has been highlighted by publications like News India Times. Prince’s parents are Hindus that fled Pakistan, so he grew up in the States and lived through experiences like the backlash after 9/11. Today, he’s lifted from that experience as one of the co-founders of ASANA Voices, a South Asian organization impacting political, economic, and social issues. By 30, he also sold one of his business ventures and currently serves as Chief Investment Officer of The Graywall Company. In this episode Prince shared his method for successfully discussing social issues and some of the initiatives that ASANA Voices is working on. He talks about how he accidentally created his first company, which he named after his dog. And he reflects on a near death experience with burnout, his recovery, and what we can do to avoid it.
