10 hours ago, for day 52 by Hannah Wei 🔥*Aside: Today I argued with someone over whether event organizers should ask speakers to speak for free. In my experience, no, that's bullshit. Speakers may choose to volunteer their time, especially if they are backed by their corporation and don't care about an honorarium. That is their choice. But organizers...
1 day ago, for day 51 by Hannah Wei 🔥I used to be one of those all-natural people who drenched my face with witch hazel and moisturized with coconut oil. Partly because of my family's superstitions about 🚨harmful chemicals🚨, and partly due to pure laziness. When I started travelling a lot, especially when it got colder, my skin at...
2 days ago, for day 50 by Hannah Wei 🔥For someone who loves rising to the challenge, stress is incredibly hard for me to balance. I need stress to push me to achieve, but often I am not aware of what I'm putting on the line. Earlier in my adulthood, I dismissed stress so many times because the body...
3 days ago, for day 49 by Hannah Wei 🔥One of the weird side-effects of travelling and running a small business is becoming an expert in getting money across borders. I mean, the alternative is that I don't get paid and that's not really an option. I unfortunately still bank with one of the large banks in Canada that...
4 days ago, for day 48 by Hannah Wei 🔥Another twenty days passed since the last time I reflected on this journey of writing every day. In the previous two reflections, I focused on the time constraints because that was where I felt the most challenge. This week, I am finally approaching a phase where starting to write 45...
5 days ago, for day 47 by Hannah Wei 🔥I read an essay on how most people get friendships wrong. It resonated with me because I've learned a lot of hard lessons on "friendships" of my own over the last decade. It has become partly why I feel so unsupported sometimes, despite feeling great about my life and having...
6 days ago, for day 46 by Hannah Wei 🔥Good feedback on a team should be timely, precise, and actionable. Unfortunately, understanding what makes good feedback for the other party is hard. When parts of the team don't have experience being builders themselves, say, managers or directors that come from a consulting background, feedback to the product team could...
1 week ago, for day 45 by Hannah Wei 🔥When I think back on Valentine's Days in school, I either went all out or didn't bother at all. I wasn't a part of the popular crowd and I didn't get asked out much, but I had no problem making the first move. The trouble was, I was introverted, artistic,...
1 week ago, for day 44 by Hannah Wei 🔥*Writer's note: I re-read my writing so far around this project. It's kind of dry and I'm not satisfied, so I'm going to veer off from talking about the design process and dig into the work I did on scaling the team. This was later in the spring into summer...
1 week ago, for day 43 by Hannah Wei 🔥In 2017, I sat on the board of a social enterprise for a year. The org had a fantastic mission of helping former inmates integrate back into society by helping them find housing and updating employable skills with training. In particular, the org was building a coffee catering business that...
