In the first episode of the podcast, I share how landing a dream job that checks all the boxes marks only the start of my journey. I also share how I got to where I am through side projects.
In December of 2018, I landed a job that checked all of the boxes and simultaneously got promoted to become one of the youngest people in my 50,000-person bank with the title of Vice President.
But I couldn’t have gotten there without the help of side projects, including building partnerships for a social enterprise, helping manage a community in the blockchain space, and advise a startup on raising capital.
I share about my experience with side projects, why I’m starting this podcast, and what to look forward to in the upcoming episodes.
