Dear White Women


May 10, 2022

When we’ve talked about intersectionality in the past, we’ve often talked about it with regard to race and gender, or gender and gender identity - but never quite like this. Our guest today is a queer British Chinese woman who also is a Brazilian Jujitsu competitor, an entrepreneur who raised over $10 million in venture capital financing, and the co-founder of an intentional, beautifully designed clothing company called ADAY.

 

If we were totally into perfectly performative scheduling, we might have had Meg on the show just as May turned into June, where we moved from AANHPI History month to LGBTQ Pride month, but we aren’t - because these stories are needed and valid all year round.  

 

What to listen for: 

  • The importance of intentionality - and how ADAY leans into sustainable fashion and away from the capitalistic chase that so many fast fashion companies perpetuate right now
  • Why it’s not always something new, but a new way to say or discuss something, that resonates with people
  • How jiu-jitsu has helped Meg get more comfortable with being uncomfortable 
  • The main messages Meg has been using her voice to speak out against, when it comes to her many intersectional identities
  • Fertility as it relates to the queer couple experience

 

About Meg, from Meg:

I’m Meg, the co-founder and co-CEO of Aday, a sustainable capsule clothing brand, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete and a business coach for athletes and gyms. I’m queer, British-Chinese and a digital nomad. Some of my Personal beliefs are as follows:

  • Don't be bored: do things that make your heart beat faster by figuring out what you're really optimizing for. The intersection of what matters to you, what you're great at and what you love is a beautiful space.
  • Be your best self: know what inspires you to create your best work, find flow and through introspection, learn how to create and re-create an environment to best enable you to do this.
  • Remember to teach: investing in those around you is one of the most valuable things you can do. It takes patience and kindness, two things I work on every day.
