"As once an avid climber of the world’s tallest mountains, the mental, emotional and physical challenges of my Himalayan and Andes mountaineering expeditions taught me many things.
Being an entrepreneur or business leader can be lonely, daunting and risky, if not perilous…to be successful, unyielding belief, persistence, patience, intelligence and emotional strength are required…effective leadership, management, and communication are essential.
Launching, leading and building a business is similar to being an expedition leader or climber of Mt. Everest…to “summit” requires a good strategy well executed and usually a little luck…you may “climb” alone but you succeed as a team…a step back may be needed to take two steps forward…adaptability, the ultimate measure of intelligence, is always required to achieve success!"
"I grew up in a coastal city in Southern China. My maternal great-grandmother, whom I spent significant time with in childhood, had bound feet. One of my ancestors was the tutor of China’s last Emperor PU Yi, a pioneering educator and a builder of railroads, and another was the Vice Admiral of Chiang Kai-shek's navy in Taiwan.
I left my small home city when I was still young and embarked on a long, enlightening, and rewarding journey. I was admitted to Peking University, riding the tide of China's Reform Era, following DENG Xiaoping's Southern Tour of 1992, helping Fortune 100 companies launch and expand their business in China. From 2000-'02, I obtained an MBA at U.C. Berkeley, where I witnessed the peak and burst of the tech bubble and was also fortunate to study macroeconomics with former U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.
In 2002, I settled in New York. I love this city, its energy and, in particular, its people, who dare to believe in and pursue their dreams."
