Podcast 07 – Are You Flying Alone?

Travel Insurance

This week, Qiuyan and Michael were joined by Shaun Mathew, a professional helicopter pilot and an integral part of Qiuyan’s support system.

Shaun offers some fascinating insights from his experience as a pilot and we talk about the similarities between flying and being an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs, Women In Tech, Founder,

He commented that flying a helicopter is about finding the right combination of people and the assignment of roles to get things running smoothly…which sounds eerily similar to the challenges of building and running a company.

They also talk about the necessity of support systems for both pilots and entrepreneurs / founders.  The glory may get bestowed upon the most visible part of any enterprise, but without a robust system of support, the building and maintenance of complex systems is not sustainable.

This is true for both flying and startups…and we delve into both in this week’s conversation.
