E372: Taking a Chance on Yourself and Building a 10M+ Ecommerce CompanyMarch in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
As someone who’s immigrated to another country for a few years myself, I know how tough it is to navigate, much less succeed in unfamiliar territory.
Today’s guest did just that.
Ronnie Teja traveled from Mumbai to Vancouver and to so many other places across the globe during his long tenure in digital marketing. He realized he was making a lot of money for a lot of people and eventually decided to bet on himself and dive right into ecommerce.

We also dive into how his company fared during a year of COVID, why books like Traction mean so much to us, and his big plans for the future.
