I have a real treat for you guys this week. Today I will be the one in the interview seat! My friend Tiff Cheng so graciously allowed me to share this episode of her podcast, Become An Entrepreneur, where she interviewed me and we really had the best time chatting about everything under the sun. There is a lot about my story I haven’t shared on this show previously, so I am very excited to open up more of my life to you guys.

I just loved how this conversation was so honest about what it’s really like to leave the cubicle world and dive head first into being the CEO of your own business. If you want to hear more about what it was like for me immigrating to the US and being raised in an Asian household, why I think your comfort zone is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and my #1 business strategy (that has nothing to do with marketing), then I would love for you guys to give this episode a listen!

Also, if you don’t listen to her already, please add Tiff’s podcast, Become An Entrepreneur, to your podcast rotation. Thank you Tiff for letting us republish this awesome episode!
