Andy Ayim on Minorities in Tech

November 23 · Issue #226 · View online
Your weekly newsletter on minorities in tech, venture and entrepreneurship 💫 http://andyayim.com

This week I feel so many people have been speaking about the new hot social invite-only app, Clubhouse. As an Android user I can’t get on it even if I wanted to (iOS only) but I realised that if did have the app, it would probably mean spending less time with my family in order to be more present in the app.
We don’t often think about our day to day trade-off decisions but every decisions carries opportunity costs.
Have a productive week!
