The couple’s therapy that helped save their marriage would also serve as the birth of an idea and career turning point for his wife and him. Roni shifted her career from software developer to psychologist, while Oren Frank left his senior marketing position and concentrated on Talkspace. Oren Franks says that anyone can have an idea, but the challenging part is criticizing, curating and cultivating these ideas to making them a reality by focusing on execution. A trend that has got Oren Frank excited is the rise of culture and human-kind that is led by women. He believes that men have significantly failed in sectors of our civilization that the only option is to allow women to lead. He terms women as more advanced species member.
As an entrepreneur, he believes in moderation. Overworking is destructive to individuals and brings about less productivity to businesses. Working reasonable hours leads to a healthy lifestyle and a happy family life. One thing he believes to be correct, but people disagree with him on, is the addictiveness of social media. He says that they play a huge role in the distribution of hate and causes mental health dangers. They are, however, useful as they spread democracy and serve the public good by helping journalists.
