The Tamil Creator Podcast (EP #84): Piraveen Sivalingam - His Entrepreneurial Journey As A Boston Pizza Franchise Owner
"Piraveen Sivalingam joins Ara on this week’s episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss how he got into the franchising game, doing business with family, missing out on fun with friends/family when he was younger because of the responsibilities that came with being a business owner, the future of franchise businesses, the challenge of finding good staff post-pandemic, not paying himself for the first couple years of running the business, and so much more."
