Ep 160 - Why Perfectionism Ruins Progress

Colombo-based entrepreneur and Founder of Surge Global, Bhanuka Harischandra always felt like the black sheep in his family. With academic pressures plaguing his future, a teenaged Bhanuka turned to video games.

After uploading video game content to streaming platforms like YouTube, Bhanuka began to see his path changing in front of him as he realised he could monetise his passion. But, when YouTube changed their business model overnight (for the worst,) Bhanuka knew he had to stick with his guns and make his dreams work.

From building a business as a teenager to working with Fortune 500 companies across the globe, today’s Peers2Peers episode powered by Shopify shares Bhanuka’s unique entrepreneurial journey.
