Ep 173 - Don’t Postpone Happiness For Success

We’ve probably all said it before: I’ll be happy when I get that promotion, the new house, the dream client, the pay rise. As ambitious people, it’s easy to get caught up in the grind and chase of striving for success. But what if we let joy in right now?

Allison Lee is the CEO & Founder of tech company, Hemster, a platform that’s working with brands to tailor clothing to you (not the other way around).

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Allison shares why you shouldn’t base all of your happiness on one milestone, the power of taking a leap of faith and how to trust yourself to keep going.

Allison Lee:

Raised by immigrant parents in the US, Allison Lee had a conservative upbringing. Education came first but as the black sheep of the family, Allison knew she was destined for something greater. After working a “cushy” tech job in Silicon Valley, Allison took a leap of faith to build her own business – giving herself a timeline of one year. The Founder & CEO of Hemster is now a Forbes 30 Under 30 listee and is working with brands including Reformation, Outdoor Voices, ADAY and many more. Not bad for someone who used to talk too much in class!

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Allison delves into her American education after being raised in South Korea, the value of giving herself one year to make her business work and how she bounced back from life-changing events.
