GFA043. Thanks for tuning in again, I’m recording this after taking a midday hike in Nanshan Mountain – in late July. I wanted to clear my head a bit and get some sun – but that was a bad idea – got a little dizzy towards the top and luckily I could grab a gatorade from a vendor on the mountain (yes, in China they have vendors – with humans inside, on the tops of mountains!)
GFA042. Thank you everyone for tuning in to another Global From Asia, a shout out to 4 amazing people who shared last week’s Hong Kong warehousing and fulfillment post – Casey Lau (who was on episode 3 on Hong Kong startup scene and StartupsHK.com), Victor Leal from Importarama.com who I met when he was here for Canton fair from Brazil giving me some of his research for the logistics show,
and Michael Eagleton from FABAPC brands in Shenzhen, who shared it a couple times this week on his linkedin and I’m so appreciative – and Chi-Wai Li who is a regular listener and founder of getfit.hk,who also left a voicemail for us.
GFA041. Hope everyone is having a fantastic day and ready to learn more about Hong Kong business! Episode 41 today and I’m going to start off our show today with a new iTunes review from Roffo in Australia:
“If you’re thinking of basing your business out of Hong Kong but don’t know where to start look no further than Mike’s terrific podcast!
He focuses each show on one aspect of running a business from the region, the perks of doing so (hello SE Asia travel) and debunks the myth that a HK based company is just for big international corporations. He also feats special guests who draw upon their real world experience.
There are too few good resources for starting a business from Asia, so finding Mike’s podcast has been a gem for me. Highly recommended”.
GFA039. I have been doing some serious traveling in China, was just in Chengdu last weekend for Startup weekend there, back to Shenzhen for a day to spend time w/ my Chinese family and newborn baby and then to where I am currently in Shanghai, China for conferences, meetings, and Startup weekend this weekend. Next week once back down in South its off to Guangzhou for more baby paperwork (certificate of birth abroad pickup) and then Hong Kong for some business deals. Just feel like life in China is so much more intense!

And gave my dad a long distance call – for all those global business owners like me – I know one of the hardest sacrifices is being away from friends and family! But the amazing benefits and experiences of international business is an amazing upside as well.
