Nely Galan joined me for an unfiltered conversation about the realities that she faced in her journey to becoming the media mogul and financial literacy champion that she is today.
From her early days as a reporter and working at a TV studio, grinding countless hours to prove herself, to her decision to put her ego aside and turn to the Latino market, Nely was completely candid about her experiences and the setbacks she faced.
Beyond her own career, Nely also broke down some powerful insights on the power of mentorship and how to approach mentors, the value of side hustles, knowing when to quit, and actionable tax laws and codes advice. And if that’s not enough to get you interested, she also honed in on the inner secrets of the media industry, when to admit you’re wrong and seek out outside help, cultivating mutually beneficial relationships, and so much more.
Tune in to this all new episode of That Moment with Daymond John and be ready to take some notes, because Nely came prepared to completely reframe the way you approach business, relationships, and what matters most to you.
