Show Notes

This week, Eric is joined by Chris Wang, the cofounder and CEO of Shimmer, an ADHD startup offering bite-sized coaching to individuals with ADHD!  Chris is an entrepreneur, social-impact advocate, angel investor, growth consultant, and forever tinkerer.  She believes strongly that business should be used as a force for good, and that positive impact not only isn’t the enemy of profit, but is a catalyst. 

This thesis underpins every decision she makes, especially when it comes to the communities she is a part of and cares the most about, the communities including LGBTQ+, AAPI (Asian-American Pacific Islander), women, non-binary, and neurodiversity – especially with ADHD.
