Today we are with Yatish Joshi.  Yatish is a family man who has traveled the world gaining amazing perspective about life, himself and the importance of going after what you want in life.  Born in India, Yatish came to the States 40+ years ago and lives in Indiana.

Yatish founded GTA Containers in 1988, which makes large scale water containers for the military.   In 2017 he decided to make a run for Congress in Indiana, and while the effort fell short, he gave a valiant effort and it has provided an amazing perspective on people that he shares with us.

We are thrilled to have Yatish as he truly represents what Season 1 is all about.
