S1 E44: I like to say I’m not gonna do something, and then I do it anyway (Kelly / @kvlly)Download MP3
Kelly Vaughn joins the show to talk about her origin story, from learning html in neopets to doing freelancing, and eventually founding her own agency. More recently, Kelly has shifted to work as an Engineering Manager and now Engineering Director at Spot AI.
We discuss how you have different levels of scope and responsibility depending on the size of the company you're working at and how changing the size of company you work at can be beneficial to your career and mental health. We dive into Kelly's love of reading and all the secrets she hides on her kindle 😉
