Episode 63 features the Founder of Ciaooo! Magazine, Chau Mui. I met Chau at the Next Gen Summit in NYC a couple months back and was blown away by her experiences and intellect as well as her eagerness to continue learning and adapting. She’s had quite a journey thus far and we had a fun time exploring some of her early years and how that helped her evolve into the business woman she is today.
Some topics discussed were:
- Growing up in Manhattan and Brooklyn
- Dumplings, a lot of dumplings
- Dropping out of college to try to be a actress/film maker
- Traveling to Machu Picchu (What the sky could’ve looked like at night – https://www.space.com/21961-milky-way-machu-picchu-photo.html)
- Ciaooomag.com and the inception
- and much more….
I know you all will enjoy Chau’s cool experiences and fun personality and I’m sure there’ll be a few acorns you can burrow away for later on in your own journey.
