Ever since I heard Tim Chang speak at an event in Italy, I knew I had to somehow get him on the Teendemy platform. His breadth of knowledge in what he's passionate about and his work in Venture Capital is incredibly inspiring.
I got the chance to interview Tim on a topic we agreed on, consciousness, but it ended up being so much more than that. We dived deep into his story, the struggles of young people/students today, and what he thinks is important for them to focus on in this day and age.
We get so caught in in our daily lives that we don't really stop and think about what we're doing and why we're doing it. A portion of the interview is on consciousness, and how you can start to implement it to become more self-aware and introspective.
The benefits of implementing consciousness don't just stop there- Tim even talks about how consciousness can impact what you end up pursuing as a career and who you surround yourself. When you start to dig deeper into what you truly want, it strips away the surface level answers and you start to realize the values and core beliefs that are underneath. Those values and beliefs can then dictate how you set up your own life.
Watch the interview to get all of his insights :)
Thank you Tim for being open to us interviewing you and sharing your wisdom to the next generation. We hope you learned as much as we did while making this, and let us know what you think!
