Leaving Your Comfort Zone with Helen Wu (AsianBossGirl)


The most universal life experience: the gut-wrenching, butterflies in your stomach, lightheaded, sweaty palms, heart racing, quasi-hyperventilating breath, hold-up-I-need-a-moment, shaky af...leaving of your comfort zone. Can I do this? Do I have what it takes? What if it doesn't work out? What if I fail? What I let ____ down? Should I do this? We've all been there. And sorry (but not sorry) to call it what it is fam, we'll continue to face these necessary changes as we grow. The silver lining is that practicing courage and a bit of that "F it" boldness can be transformative in the best of ways. In this episode, Minji sits down with Big 4 corporate veteran turned inspiring podcaster and creative Helen Wu from AsianBossGirl in her very first solo podcast conversation ever. Together they reflect on her significant and scary life changes, including leaving her hometown of Boston and relationships to pursue a new life across the country, navigating a challenging career, growing in her relationship with now-fiance Phil Wang, and taking on a new identity as a creative professional with AsianBossGirl Podcast, including facing major phobias like public speaking. They dive into the highs and lows, the lessons, the fears, and future visions. Show Helen some love as she takes flight in 2021!
