Anyone can succeed in running a business no matter his background, Professor Charlie Harary told Arutz Sheva.
Harary is a Clinical Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship and an Associate Entrepreneur in Residence at the Syms School of Business at Yeshiva University.
“It’s so important to understand how business works because there are so many people out there who want to play a bigger role in business and they can,” he said.
“When you don’t have the education you feel like you’re lost and you’re not good enough, but you ARE good enough,” he emphasized. “There’s knowledge that you can get. Jewish people believe in knowledge. We learn. We’ve always learned.”
Harary recently held the LTB Business Summit, which enabled Jews from all backgrounds to get together, hear lecture from speakers and learn from one another.
“The speakers spoke about how to get better in business and the crowd went crazy, because there are so many people who want to make a livelihood. They want to try but they don’t know how,” he said.
Anyone who prefers to stay at home and study should do so, said Harary, “but if you want to go out into the world, why be disadvantaged if other people aren’t? That’s what this is. We’re not telling people what to do. If you decide to do business, we want to help you be the best that you can be.”
