Deciding to make a change
Yan Fan: Hi, my name is Yan Fan and I am the co-founder and co-CEO of Code Chrysalis, which is a [coding bootcamp] company based in Japan.
My career has taken a ton of twists and turns. I started out in finance and ended up as a software engineer in Silicon Valley and then started two companies, one of which is the one that I’m running right now.
The first big leap that I took was quitting my finance job. That was the biggest one that to me personally, I felt that I took. And it was because it was the first one and because I was so young then.
Like many people, I think we choose our careers quite early on. So for me, it was when I was 17 or 18 years old deciding what to study in university. But, you know, when you’re a little older in your 20s and you actually start working at that job, you realize that maybe this idea that you had when you were a teenager isn’t quite what you thought it was. And I find that lots of people are stuck in this position, and I felt myself stuck.
Taking the leap from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur
Fan: I didn’t know what I could do. I had a lot of different ideas. I really wanted to start my own company. I’d always had that dream as a kid, and I was constantly coming up with various business ideas or business plans, but everything kind of always went down to my lack of technical knowledge. I ended up quitting my finance job to gain some of that technical knowledge. So I decided to completely switch careers and learn how to code and become a software engineer.
And so while I was still working in finance, I started learning how to code on the side and that hobby quickly grew into something that I was doing every day. It became something where, you know, day by day, as I learned more, it became more real that this could be a career that I could take. So I ended up quitting my job, and I found a coding bootcamp in San Francisco. I studied enough to be able to get in because they expected a particular level to get in. I did that course and then found a job as a software engineer in Silicon Valley.
