Karim Temsamani, the CEO of Cardlytics and previous President of Google in Asia, joins Caesar for an eye-opening conversation about personal growth, career changes, and the mindset he had that pushed him to make these pivotal changes throughout his life.

Karim shares what factors went into his decision-making for every career shift, from taking his first position after college in a country he wasn’t from to eventually working and running various businesses in nine countries. Karim stresses that he believes no one should make a career change strictly based on the financial aspect. 

While money and your financial situation can play a role in career decisions, he wants people to understand that the best way to make career changes is based on interest, the ability to work with great people and family, and the opportunity to learn something new. Karim shares that his decision to leave Google in Hong Kong was made based on wanting to try something new and be closer to family. 

This episode tells the story of different factors that should influence career changes and how money isn’t everything.
