Episode 6 - Melissa Ng

"Don't let people tell you who you should be or what you should believe in." - Melissa Ng

Melissa Ng is the founder of Melewi, a completely location-independent Product, UX and UI design studio.

Mel grew up in Singapore but decided not to go to university and chose to carve her own path instead. She started with some design freelancing and soon realized she could do the work from anywhere. As the studio started to grow she hired people from across the world to help her out and has since worked with clients as large as McDonalds, Samsung and Citibank. Mel and her team often take advantage of their luxury to work while traveling.

We talk about carving your own path, getting comfortable with people, the importance of understanding yourself, psychopaths, Japanese cheesecake, picking things worth suffering through and much more.
