Compliance That Makes Sense

Compliance That Makes Sense


This is a place where FinTech compliance, regulations and risks are made simple and fun. Your host, Yana Afanasieva, corporate dropout turned entrepreneur, introduces you to pragmatic risk acceptance and agile compliance that scale, challenges financial industry conventional wisdom, and wholeheartedly believes that dashboards and automation often make much better job than humans.

In this episode, I explain why to-do lists aren’t actually as helpful as many time-management gurus would have you believe! I also share a new approach that you can use to define your strategic priorities instead of a to-do list.
