Entrepreneurs are heroes, especially those who break molds, create new businesses, and help provide for the livelihood of their teammates and partners. Arsen and his story are extraordinary. A super smart guy from the coldest place on earth — Siberia — is bound to see the world differently when he sets out to explore it. 'Inner Drive' is filled with inspiration and 'you must be kidding me' moments but the proof of success is in the rapidly growing company he continues to build in emerging markets around the world.
