discover how our clients go from idea to business without years wasted in trial & error
Let me share with you my
first business epiphany …
It happened after China was still recovering (or atleast I was still recovering) from Jack Ma’s IPO frenzy in 2014.
I remember being seated at the back pew (of business hall) bored to death, when Mrs. Lu, our Business IT teacher stopped lecturing over ‘some’ ppt and said
… “here are some hacked softwares I found online and I need you guys to use them to create anything”…
Immediately I lit up ; finally something challenging had come through!
Whilst others scampered to go with softwares like Photoshop … etc, I thought maybe Adobe Dreamweaver was more of a threat (as I had had no prior experience with) to me.
Long story short, with Dreamweaver, I coded my first website (kinda like a taobao version but only for homeland goodies foreigners couldn’t find in China. See classroom presentation here)
And got great feedback from my mates; they sure needed a platform like mines to meet their homeland needs.
Pumped therefore to turn my prototype into business (so I could add value to over 20000 foreigners across China using my platform), I went up to my business teacher, Mrs Zhu.
To say I planned to SCALE (exactly the secret formula Jack ma used by going public … granted I was light years of going public but the idea of SCALE still remains.) turning classroom project into an actual business.
And shockingly Mrs. Zhu wasn’t that optimistic.
…”It is too big, it will involve so many vendors, links … don’t bother too much my dear, this is too much of a task. Stay in class and stick to the curricula” … (I added this last line. LoL!)
So, I quit to then scale this new business muse, with other like-minded Chinese who had succeeded in starting & running businesses with…
My first business epiphany being:
You learn the Secrets and Formulas of International trade by DOING International trade not by studying International trade.
Yes! Its taking the high way of course, where you put down your money in real time and watch it feedback you in real life. As opposed to playing pretend (classroom simulations with words) with business nannies (professors babysitting & petting you away from reality – real business world).
I had more business epiphanies, within the course of acquiring my second business in China (a German Foreign Direct Investment firm)… 10 in total.
My second business epiphany being:
INFORMATION is key to navigate the Chinese business world. But, that by default (Chinese high context communication culture) its always HIDDEN. So, you have to kiss as many frogs as you can. Or be smart enough to PARTNER with businesses like ours (who’ve done the kissing for years) to save your time and 2X your results.
