About this episode

Helen Tran is a designer, CEO, hobbyist writer, traveler and macaroon connoisseur (amongst other things). She's also a long-time friend of Funsize who can't resist making frequent journeys from her home in Toronto to visit us. We had a great time sitting down with her to talk about everything from software design, business ownership and bodybuilding, to wealth and weird Texan habits.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Growing with Shopify
  • Paying dues before taking big career risks
  • Figuring out what to pursue and deciding to start Jupiter
  • Why there's no such thing as "business vs. personal"
  • Living someone else's life for a year
  • How bodybuilding affects discipline and goal setting
  • Defining "wealth"
  • The knowledge gap between CEO generations
  • Business as more than a way to make money
  • Toronto vs. Texas
  • A lot more
