“Time flies and I am beyond happy to spend most of my time with my family.”
As the co-founder of one of the first FinTech companies in Indonesia – DOKU – Nabilah Alsagoff starts her day early and then goes to the gym. This elevates her endorphins, giving her brain a natural high and her body an energy boost. It’s perhaps an important activity for someone who runs a tech company in this digital era. Although sometimes, when she feels like it, she will just putter around her apartment in the morning to play with her cat while enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
“How I start my day and the personal time I enjoy in the morning is what gives me the energy to tackle the daily frenzy that comes from every direction,” she explained to us. “As a team leader, it is important that I exude positive vibes, as I expect the same level of energy from my teammates and peers.”
Nabilah believes that a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. She is the kind of person that focuses on her well-being so that she will be able to go through her day. “Living and working in Jakarta means spending a lot of hours stuck in traffic jams. I work in FinTech, a fast-moving, dynamic industry, and I mentor a large team of IT professionals, predominantly male. What is left of my time is so precious to me that I am pressed to use it wisely.” Nabilah Alsagoff wears the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Night & Day with a jacket by DIESEL.
