Episode 26: Femi Opaneye – A harrowing journey to entrepreneurial success

Femi Opaneye is the Founder and CEO of Linked Optimization, which helps businesses generate B2B leads and sales through LinkedIn.  He is a successful entrepreneur today -- but he almost didn’t survive to get to this point. On this episode, Femi opens up about his difficult career journey, and the years of pain and struggle that preceded his success: working as a self-described “dreadful employee” in investment banking, losing his job, struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts, returning to investment banking (and hating it again), and failing at his first few business ventures.  His honest story is a reminder that the road to success is not a straight line. His valuable advice for being tenacious through adversity will inspire you to keep learning & moving forward. Learn more about Femi on LinkedIn and his business at www.linkedoptimization.com
