Everything Significant Happens At The Fringe

I’m Tatiana Zalan

I’m a business professor, an entrepreneur and advisor to startups. 

I hold semi-controversial beliefs about life and business. I like fringe ideas and people who go against the grain and have a spiritual and creative bent. 

I’m formally studying psychotherapy to understand human nature and the way our mind works. 

I’ve changed careers, universities, companies, cities and continents. I’ve learnt to live through uncertainty, and I’m still learning. 

I’m also a wife, a mother and a daughter.
