OCTV: Entrepreneur Sanjay Burman On How Failure Became Success – Pt.1

Media Open Chest TV Apr 05, 2016

Sanjay Burman showed an early interest in business when he sold his high school to Pepsi for $1.2 million. Although the sale never completed, Sanjay learned a lot about the art of the deal. He next apprenticed at the Toronto Film Festival at age 14, produced his first national show on the CBC at age 16 and, by age 23, was Vice President of packaging for Characters Talent Agency — the largest agency in Canada. He also produced a Cannes- and TIFF-winning feature, Spider, directed by David Cronenberg.

[blockquote]In 2003, Sanjay left the entertainment industry to pursue a new direction — undertaking the study of hypnotherapy as a tool for personal growth.[/blockquote]

Specializing in treating addictive behavior and offering arrested regression therapy, Sanjay opened a clinic (still open on weekends) to pursue his new profession. A year later, in 2004, he launched BurmanBooks, Inc.

Sanjay sits down with me on this episode of OPEN CHEST TV to discuss turning failures into successes and the many different lessons he has learned from his professional experiences.
