The Entrepreneur Gene: RIZZARR’s Ashley Williams and NREMG’s Connaé Pisani

There’s long been debate whether one is genetically predisposed to succeed as an entrepreneur, or whether those qualities and skills are developed. Sisters and entrepreneurs, Ashley M. Williams and Connaé Pisani, make a good argument for the former. On this week’s edition of StartupNation Radio, your host, Jeff Sloan, sits down with both Williams and Pisani to learn more about their entrepreneurial ventures.
