Growing up in El Paso, I was fortunate enough not just to learn Spanish, but to be able to practice a second language in real life situations. 

But my education, my friendships, and my opportunities never relied on me mastering another language…or culture…or legal system. 

My guest this week, Olga V. Mack, can confidently claim to have done all three of these things. 

The daughter of political refugees, Olga moved to the United States from the U.S.S.R. at the age of 13. Her journey from aspiring artist, to probable engineer, to legal heavyweight, is so unique that the only way to do it justice is to listen to this episode. 

As the CEO of Parely Pro, a next-generation contract management company, what struck me most about this conversation was Olga’s clear preference for blunt – often humorous – conversation. 

But it’s also that desire for transparency that has clearly inspired her to break down barriers for herself & for others, both as an attorney & as a human being. 

She has published articles in Newsweek, been a legislative advocate, and has a TedTalk that is well worth listening to. 

Enjoy the show!
