Jing Gao: Coming Back To Self

Jing Gao is the founder and CEO of Fly By Jing, a modern Asian food brand that’s on a mission to bring diversity to the natural food space. After being featured in the New York Times right as quarantine began last year, Fly By Jing skyrocketed and has been growing at a rapid pace—and it’s the kind of growth that feels so grounded that we couldn’t help but feel curious about the soul behind the magic. And that’s just what this conversation is: an exploration of the relationship between soul and its expression. Throughout this conversation we discuss listening for inner truth and alignment, Jing’s journey of reclaiming her birth name, carving out solitary time for deep work, and the role of intuition in making business decisions. We talk Enneagram, Human Design, spiritual guides, and what it’s like to embody a public-facing role as an introvert. There’s nothing more magnetic than a human who’s truly claiming all of who they are, and Jing is an inspiring example of someone who’s doing that sacred work. We truly loved this conversation and hope you’ll find some resonance here, too.
