Dr. Heidi interviews Raj Malhotra, CEO, InvenTrust. Raj’s sense of the possibilities of a peripatetic life began as a child growing up in a family that traveled more than most. As a journalist who featured the lives and challenges of prominent women leaders, his mom’s range was unusual for most women in the traditional Indian society where we lived. As a result I never associated home-making with a particular gender role. My dad ran an aviation industry business and his own regular travels inculcated in me a sense that my home is the world.
