Give us a little insight about your journey that got you where you are today.
Growing up in Canada, I never saw anyone on TV that looked like me and I always felt ashamed that I was Asian. It has been my mission to elevate the voices of Asian women and dismantle the stereotypes we face. I want our current and future generations to have a strong Asian female role model to look upto. This is why I love to elevate Asian women through media and coaching.
Can you tell us about some success stories you've had with your business/product or anything of which you are extremely proud?
My podcast has won awards and gained over 1 million downloads. I have co-authored 2 bestselling books and have been featured on big TV networks worldwide. I have also been able to help Asian women see their worth through my work.
What is one motivational quote that has inspired you in your journey? Do you have any advice for other women who are working towards starting their own business?
Behind Every Successful Woman Is Herself.
Advice - Do not be afraid to make the first move. You create the opportunities you desire by making the first move.
Why do you think it is important for women to support each other, especially in your field of work? How do you or your company help combat systems and policies that exist to keep women marginalized?
I believe we can create real change when we women support each other. We have created a movement called Women Who Boss UP which helps women build confidence, get clear on their business goals and create the income they desire regardless of their background.
What are some ways you practice self care and how does it help you in your life and career? Do you have any tips for other women to stay balanced?
Always set some me time for yourself even if it's 20 minutes a day. Self care is so important to take care of our mental well being. Some of the things I love to do for self care is work out, read books and watch kdramas. Also, it's important to choose self care practices that work for you. We are all different so what may work for me might not work for you and vice versa.
What are some long term goals you have for yourself or your business?
