Over the years of building her own business, Chiang has had to jump over one hurdle after another. The most difficult of these, however, are her own mental challenges. “The imposter syndrome [the fear of being exposed as a ‘fraud’], combined with social anxiety, really prevented me from putting my business and expertise out there,” she shares. “But having supportive people around me really helped me get out of my comfort zone.”
Running a start-up is no easy feat, and Chiang admits she has had her share of bad days. When asked how she gets through tough times, she says, “It’s about celebrating the small victories or looking back on the milestones I’ve reached, both personally and professionally.”
