Most of us have dreams of one day winning the lottery. We imagine how our lives would change if we won and the things we would do with that money. But have we considered other lotteries that we’ve already won or lost in life that have profoundly impacted us? Majid Abai shares his personal journey from refugee to American entrepreneur and how chance plays an important role in one’s life, but first, you have to buy that lottery ticket.
