As entrepreneurs, we’re constantly thinking about the future. The next quarter, the next goal. But how often do we stop and think about death? 

Today’s guest, Maika Isogawa had to think about it at a young age when her cousin tragically passed whilst in the prime of his life. As a result, Maika founded Webacy, a platform that helps to manage digital assets such as social media and crypto currency after death. 

In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Maika shares her discovery of finding a gap in the market,  the importance of having an outlet outside of business, and why thinking about death can sometimes help us discover what we truly want.
