Upcoming Speaker: Kelly Zheng
"Google Calendar, aka, My Part-Time Lover"
(Come see Kelly speak at Crushing The Myth (08), Oct. 26th in NY)
Hello, my name is Kelly Zheng and like most people here, I am an ambitious person that wants to do a lot. If I’m in an job interview and the interviewer asks me to describe myself in one word, I would say it’s energetic. If you ask my friends how they would describe me, they would say “hyper-extrovert,” “hustler,” “active,” and “busy af.” I’m one of those cliches who embody the motto “I can sleep when I’m dead.” To throw some numbers at you, I would say I typically work 100+ hours a week. Now these 100 hours aren’t just my full-time job- it includes a lot of my side gigs and hustles.
Here’s the breakdown of what my average week looks like:
Full-Time Job: 50-100 hour work weeks
Ascend: 10-15 hours per week
Instagram: 10-15 hours per week
Consulting Training: 1-3 hours per week
Events Planning: 1-3 hours per week
Adhoc Speaking Events: 1-3 hours per week
Mentoring: 1-5 hours per week
Adhoc Projects: 1-5 hours per week
To help visualize this better, here is my love, Google Calendar.

Overstep Comedy, NYC's new Asian-American sketch phenomenon, is here to increase diversity and kick ass. Come for an hour of scripted comedy skits and shenanigans. Overstep's squad of writer-actor-comedians sees laughter as not merely an escape, but as an entry point into difficult conversations, into something otherwise overlooked or considered unspeakable. They also make a lot of food references because they are hungry--for both food and social change!
