#237. The Co-Founder of Chiyo on Uniting the Past and Present
It’s unlikely “entrepreneur” was your first job. It probably took you a while to get there: keeping yourself afloat while you honed your passions and direction. But time spent learning isn’t time wasted. When it came time to start her own venture, this week’s guest found she’d already learned the skills she needed along the way.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Irene Liu joins the podcast to discuss the good work of Chiyo: a food delivery service that provides pregnancy and postpartum meals that combine Eastern medicinal practice with Western nutrition.
Irene shares how a messy career narrative gave her the skills she needed to run her company, how COVID was a blessing for a catering service looking to hire out-of-work chefs, and how she found the ultimate fulfilment in following a pursuit that allowed her to directly help people.
