More about MyLe:
If you were the CEO of your company, what things would you make compulsory, and what’s one thing you would ban?
Since I am the CEO of my own company, what I have banned are 24-7 work weeks. I am not a proponent of the ‘work at all costs’ model. I believe in working smarter; not longer. I guess that would be my answer to the compulsory question, too. Ban 24-7 working and mandate work life balance.
What do you NOT want to be doing in five years?
These are simple things but I do not want to be filling out spreadsheets in five years or revising slide decks ad infinitum.
What’s the first thing you bought with your own money?
The first thing I bought with all my hard-earned money was my cello! I was so happy that I’d worked so hard to buy my very own cello after renting one for many years. I’ve since sold it – to another young Vietnamese-American cellist so, I feel like everything came full circle.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
It’s really hard to choose but Vietnam, Australia, Spain or Italy are up there. It’s got to have easy access to sun and bodies of water/islands.
What’s one (or two) things people would say you do really well?
Strategic planning, execution and connecting people.
