Q: Of all the places in the world to work, how did you end up choosing Honduras as the hub for your organization?

But if you do find that you have something unique, then look for partnerships – that’s the key. You’ll initially be so excited and want to do everything on your own right away, but learn to reach out and form a core team to jumpstart your efforts.
