“Doing good for others doesn’t mean doing less for yourself.” -Renyung Ho

Oh, you guys, this episode. Not only was it awesome because Renyung is literally on the other side of the world in Singapore (which we talked A LOT about Singapore and now I want to go there!), but also because Renyung has such an amazing perspective on building and running a business with purpose. Hearing how she grew up, how she got started, and what it was like to start MATTER prints was so incredible. She is incredibly intelligent, witty, and driven. I was blown away by our conversation and I can’t WAIT for you to hear this episode!
