Who Are We

I grew up in Taipei and came to the States for college. I co-founded a job marketplace startup at 18 and learned all the things you shouldn’t do for a startup. Yet that experience helped me get PM offers from tech giants at 18. More importantly, I grew to be more strategic and intentional about business and life. 

I was on the path of achieving more. After a few years of experimentation and coaching, I learned that happiness is about finding your values and showing up for yourself. This led me to build LivingOS and help others live out their dream. 

I help high achievers identify their personal values, navigate career growth, and get more out of life. My clients include senior leaders and early career professionals across the bay area. Over the past few years, I have seen incredible improvements across clients’ lives when they work with me.

We are a nonprofit.

After coaching more than 50 folks, we are excited to share the systems that will help you design the life you love. Let me be your guide through this crazy journey! 

All the proceeds of LivingOS University are reinvested back to the community through services, courses, and experiences.

What Do You Want To Get Out Of Life?

It was a wonderful learning journey with Charlene’s LivingOS. I gained lifehacking tips like habit developing and networking skills through her daily updates. She also customized resources for me to look into for areas I want to improve on. The community I met here are all wonderful people who want to live a happier, productive, and more fulfilled life. I benefit so much from chatting with them online and through group mentoring calls where I can not only get my questions answered but also learn from others’ experiences. I am so glad I ran into LivingOS so I can start living my life in a brand new way.

Thanks Charlene for offering the help when I started to face more challenging tasks in my work and life. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of the group and have the chance to meet so many inclusive friends from various industries with different specialties. Thanks them for letting me know that I’m not alone in feeling the pressure facing challenges to live a better life and I’m not the only one having self-doubt. Since everything is on the positive track, I have no reason to be too tense about what I’m experiencing and what I’m trying to do.

The most valuable thing about Charlene’s insight is that it leads me to think about ways to systematically organize time-consuming tasks with an effective task management mindset. Charlene always shows her approach to a problem and attaches a bunch of other related resources. I am always enlightened by the content and the way she delivers the information. She never implies the message that her approach is the best way, but uses her own example to lead me on the right track to find the best solution myself instead. I love that she provides the framework and all related resources I need for me to DIY an approach that best fit my needs.
