Growing up in her native Russia, Irina Alexander always wanted to be a teacher. Her mother persuaded her to major in business because teachers make very little money. So, Irina earned her MBA, built a business in a male-dominated industry with over $1 million in revenue in under two years, and found herself in the top 1.6% of all woman-owned businesses. Today, she is a teacher. She teaches Neurolinguistics Programming and helps people free themselves from behaviors that don’t serve them well. She does this by getting to the root of the problem and guiding her clients to remove the root. Through her journey, Irina found the root of one of her problems which she willingly shares here.

Podcast Episode #56: Dr. Yuliya Salmeron

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-determined-people-podcast/id1545647376?i=1000508080664

When Yuliya Salmeron was 19 years old, she tearfully said goodbye to her mother and boarded a bus for the Moscow Airport. Yuliya wasn’t sure she would ever see her mother again, but Yuliya wanted a better life for herself and her family. This brought her to the United States.
After first arriving in New York, she ended up in Cleveland, slept 2 nights in the Cleveland bus station because she had nowhere to go, and finally secured a job cleaning a restaurant at night. Her English, while proficient at understanding others, wasn’t conversational so Yuliya took the brave step of working in a diner, forcing her to interact with the English-speaking customers. She enrolled in college, and after a demeaning conversation with a former work colleague, something ignited inside her. Yuliya Salmeron was going to combine her artistic and technical skills and become a dentist!
Through a lot of hard work and determination, Yuliya graduated in the top 3% of her dental class. She knew where she wanted to go, but God had a better plan…
Yuliya’s story of grit, determination, perseverance and faith will inspire you. Today she is the proud owner of EDGE Endodontics, but it wasn’t easy getting there…
