On this episode I’m speaking with my friend Misha, who left Japan, but came back again after starting his online coaching platform business called Carrus. We dig into burnout and hustle culture, meditation and self-improvement, and how hard it really is to get a job at big tech companies in Japan. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
