The challenges we experience in life almost always lead to our successes. Dr Catherine Yang is a testament to that.

Moving to Australia as a 15 year old with minimal English, she was able to get into Dentistry and is now a practice owner, Author and Speaker. Her journey to this level of achievement taught her lessons of managing and ‘stepping on’ her fear. And that is the genesis of her book ” Step on Fear”.

In this podcast we have the pleasure of discussing this journey, her advice, specifically tailored to young dentists as well as her influential involvement with B1G1, a company we are very passionately working with.

Find out more about her new book “Step on Fear” here, as well as Legacy; The Sustainable Development Goals in Action, the B1G1 book Dr Catherine Yang co-authored at the link for a free sample chapter.
