So what does it take to make it and what are important life lessons along the way? Our Daniela Cambone has an exclusive and candid interview with Frank Giustra, a self-made billionaire and global philanthropist who left his mark as a mining financier and Lionsgate Entertainment founder. In part one of the interview, Giustra shares his successes and failures— and reflects on key moments that led to his wealth.
Frank Giustra is a Canadian business executive, who has been particularly successful in the mining and filmmaking industries, and is a noted philanthropist.
