Tereza Nemessanyi on Honestly Now

December 24, 2011

Tereza Nemessanyi started quantifying herself in a time of great loneliness, after both her parents had died and she was missing their advice. She asked her friends for advice, but she found it to be polite and not always honest. So she built an app, Honestly Now, to let people anonymously ask for and give each other frank advice. In the video below, Tereza talks about what she learned from this project, including how to calibrate whether something is worth stressing about. (Filmed by the New York QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
