Mongolia | Undraa Buyannemekh

February 14, 2023

Today we’re discussing the country of Mongolia, and all the riches it has to offer. This is a place where “the big picture gets bigger.” The home of snow leopards, wild horses, the hypnotic dunes of the silk road, and of course the warm hospitality of the Mongolian people. 

My guest today is my partner in the region, Undraa Buyannemekh. Her passion for bringing the experience of Mongolia to life is contagious. We discuss everything from misconceptions about the country, to differing concepts of wealth across the world, to creating experiences that can broaden your perspective. 

Whether you’ve been to Mongolia or you’re just curious about it, this episode is sure to teach you something new.
