We had the good fortune of connecting with Shannon Ino and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shannon, do you disagree with some advice that is more or less universally accepted?
I think one piece of advice that I’ve learned to disagree with is that multi-tasking makes you more efficient. Early in my career, I used to include multi-tasking as a skill on my resume, but I ended up learning that you can’t truly multi-task and be efficient. As a Project Manager, I’m constantly having to put out fires throughout the day while moving across multiple projects/tasks. I find that I’m most efficient when I’m able to prioritize what needs to get done first and then move on to the next task that needs to get done.
What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way.
What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
This question got me excited for when I can hang out with my friends again! If I were to take one of my friends on a week long trip, I would probably try to break up the week into a couple of mini getaways since they are so close to LA:
(when I’m eating meat) – Otomisan in Boyle Heights – Waxpaper in Chinatown – Masa – Triple Beam Pizza – Pine and Crane
Places to drink/coffee: – Zebulon – Short Stop – Little Joy – Sunset Beer – Bar Calo – Bar Flores – Eightfold Coffee
I would also want to take them to a show at the Hollywood Bowl!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my Mom – she has always been super supportive of my not-so-linear career path and has always given me advice whenever I’m unsure of what I should do. I am very, very lucky to have parents who have allowed me to pursue whatever interest I had and have always had my back.
