Hi! I'm Lillian.
I authored Data Science For Dummies, Editions 1, 2 & 3. It’s my baby!
I hope you ♡ it!
When I made the transition from side-hustle to full-time entrepreneur (back in 2013), Facebook Menlo Park was trying to recruit me for the ultimate data position in Silicon Valley. It was a clear test of my resolve. Without a second thought, I declined those interview requests and moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I lived off $600/month in order to bootstrap my business from near-scratch.
8 years in, 6 books written, 8 online data courses authored, and over 1.3 Million data professionals trained, I’m fully supported with robust partnerships and an incredible team to help me keep the business thriving. We’ve built a thriving online community of over 650k data professionals. After all this, and after having supported over 10% of Fortune 100 companies, I pivoted my business’s mission and made it our one and only focus to help other data professionals become world-class data leaders and entrepreneurs.
Oh, and I’ve been an expat, working remotely for the last 7 years. While sometimes I’m running my business from my luxury villa in the Gulf of Thailand, other times I’m running it from the road while I travel the world with my loving husband + young child in toe.
Achievement for the sake of achievement got OLD fast!
After helping educate over 1.3 Million data professionals, and after having supported > 10% of Fortune 100 companies – – achievement for the sake of achievement got a little boring. I started craving impact in a major way, so – wouldn’t you know it – I flipped my business on it’s head and set forth on a new mission.
Our sole and single focus is to support data professionals in transforming into world-class data leaders and entrepreneurs.
