In this episode I catch up with my friend Tim Fung who has recently successfully IPO'd his company - Airtasker! We talk about how achievement is often the sum of small wins and that if it started with a big audacious goal of an IPO in the first place, the task would have seemed monumental. I always like catching up with Tim and this is the follow up conversation from our first chat so if you haven't listened to that please check that episode out as well!
