Again….from on a bus crossing from Hong Kong into Shenzhen, China. Had an amazing management meeting with the Enter China .co team and preparing for an amazing October
There are plenty of events happening this trade show season here in the Pearl River Delta, and I have made a page on Global From Asia to outline some of them such as Chris Davey’s Amazon FBA seller meetup as well as Enter China’s – you can get that info on GlobalFromAsia.com/cantonfair – I will update it and link to all the events I know of each trade show season.
Alright and now for this week’s show – this was a fun one, I was invited to a massive Chinese Amazon Seller Conference at the end of August in Shenzhen – like 2,000 Chinese sellers – well a few foreign sellers as well I was able to make video blog that has gotten interest, you can see it at mikesblog.com/vlog035 if you want to see it yourself – and at this conference I met Jeff Cohen from Seller Labs – and we did a podcast at the event!

Thank you Jeff – and anyone who wants a really cool t-shirt from them – leave a cool comment on today’s show notes to get it – we don’t get much engagement here on the blog – so maybe this will change that – head on over – www.globalfromasia.com / episode143 and let’s get some action going.
So I am still on this bus- looking out the windows at the shipping containers going around the world. I am loving what action is happening on this side of the world -and I hope you guys are also taking action in your businesses. Don’t get so overwhelmed – just take it one step at a time – hopefully forward- but even if it is backwards once in awhile – the key is to be disciplined and consistent. cheers
