If you've reached here because you're looking for Dana Hooshmand, well, here I am.
What I'm working on at Hooshmand.net
At Hooshmand.net, I write about business, coding, motorcycles and tech. I focus on writing guides on how to solve difficult problems with limited resources. It's a mixed bag of my professional and personal interests and gives you a snapshot of what I'm like to work with and talk to.
Some of my favourite posts are:
- Create Happiness in Face-to-Face Customer Service using Data: a guide to how to put together many tools to create a 360-degree feedback loop for increasing service NPS
- Why Saying No to a Million Dollars Was One of the Easiest Decisions I Ever Made: How I chose a life I want to live instead of another lucrative job
- Preventing and Managing Cafe No-Shows: a research guide built on interviewing dozens of cafe owners
I'm generally available for contract consulting, though I have limited time now. The vast majority of my experience is in online operations. If you want to contact me, drop me a line here.
What I'm working on at Discover Discomfort
Discover Discomfort is a mission (by me and Jo Hyun) to learn more about the world around us by living in places that are challenging or unfamiliar to us and learning something difficult. We are learning languages, skills (like martial arts and dance) and about new cultures, everywhere from the Middle East to Africa to Asia and Latin America.
Right now we're focusing on learning Egyptian Arabic.
I also write The Vanity Metric, a satirical look at professional and Silicon Valley (and my own) life.
