Ep 52 - Finding Ups in Downs
We get it. Envying someone else’s green grass can be more tempting than a glazed jam donut. In today’s episode, Nick Chang keeps it real and reminds us that nobody has it all. Instead, we can only appreciate the sweet things in life once we’ve tasted the sour.
We get it. And, we all do it. Envying someone else’s green grass can be more tempting than a glazed jam donut. Often, it comes all too naturally to stare longingly at someone’s life and wish you had achieved more.
Today’s guest reminds us that nobody has it all.
The internet revolution is well and truly here. We can order food to our door in two taps, and a date to dine with in just one swipe. But, before our guest arrived to the scene, for some reason we still had to dial a number to get our hair did. We mean, done.
Luckily, Nick Chang stepped up and created a solution as sweet as Honee, a digital platform making it easy to browse and book beauty and wellness appointments online.
Since its inception, Honee has continued to generate buzz in the beauty industry and has since earned Nick a spot on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. However, as Nick reveals in this inspiring episode, his rise to success was far from super sweet. Instead he reminds us that great success also comes with failures along the way.
In the digital world, objects often seem shinier than they appear. Nick keeps it real and reminds us that we can only appreciate the sweet things in life once we’ve tasted the sour.
Nick Chang is the Co-Founder and COO of Honee, a beauty discovery and booking website. In 2017, Honee graduated from Startmate, which is Australia’s best startup incubator backed by Blackbird Ventures. Honee currently offers over 100, 000 services on its platform and is the market leader in online bookings. In 2018, Nick was named as a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient for his phenomenal work.
