For my year review, I measure progress by considering how many times I have left my comfort zone. They are in chronological order.
- I turned down a video producer job in Singapore with Thomson Reuters to join the founding team of a media startup covering tech in Beijing. A year ago, I followed my gut without overthinking and endured a 60% salary cut. My decision has become a fun story to tell at job interviews: why I am crazy to choose an uncertain path. Also, my lessons learned from the hiring process with a startup.
