Esmé Weijun Wang: Milestones, Change, & Celebration

Esmé Weijun Wang is the author of a New York Times-bestselling essay collection, The Collected Schizophrenias (2019), and a novel, The Border of Paradise (2016).

Born in the Midwest to Taiwanese parents, Esmé lives in San Francisco, and can be found at esmewang.com, where she provides resources for ambitious people living with limitations.

In this episode, Esmé shares stories of her own milestones and celebrations, and we dig into a conversation about jealousy, defining success for yourself, and why it is important to separate the celebration of the process from that of the outcome or accolades.
