Our guest, Nageen (Nyn) Riffat is answering the question - What are the predictors if I will be successful in my work and life?

According to Nyn, 'Not education, not experience, not knowledge or intellectual horsepower. None of these are adequate predictor as to why one person succeeds and another doesn’t. The answer has to do with this concept called emotional intelligence. And while it is harder to identify and measure than IQ or experience, and certainly difficult to capture on a resume, its power cannot be denied.



For the past ten years, Nageen Riffat – also known as Nyn – has dedicated herself to empowering women and guiding them to embrace their potential. As a leadership consultant, author and speaker, she has helped thousands of women build a life of success, influence and positive impact, both within and outside of the USA. Not only does she run her consultancy business, Nyn’s Dreams LLC, from her hometown of Houston.

Nyn’s book “#HerRhythm-You Are More Than Your Survival Story” has gained a lot of attention around the world. In its pages, Nyn bravely tells of how she escaped her abusive marriage, fought for custody of her two sons, and took refuge with them in the USA. Much of the motivation for her entrepreneurial work comes from her past experiences of abuse and repression, and it is her hope that her story and work will not only captivate those who need it, but inspire them to a life of more.
