GFA034. Thanks everyone for tuning in, episode 34 of the show – I have to say, I am a bit exhausted – I slept in a Chinese hospital 4 nights last weekend as my wife had early pregnancy false alarm….that is a blog post in itself coming soon – life is definitely an adventure and we need to embrace it – that’s all I’ll say there.
GFA031. Thanks everyone for tuning in, I’m so excited this week, I’ve been meeting so many amazing listeners from this podcast – I think its due to Canton Fair – a lot of business people coming over this time of the year. For those of you not aware, the Canton Fair is one of the biggest sourcing fairs in China – happening 2 times per year in the spring time (april/ may) which is where we are now, and then again in the fall. There is also the Hong Kong fair by Global Sources so its double the action.
GFA030. Thanks everyone for tuning in again! Some fun personal updates to share before we get into today’s show – I just picked up my family-in-law from the airport last week, they are moving in to help with the housework and the baby on the way. I’m feeling more and more Chinese and will keep everyone posted. Over the last couple weeks, I have been moving out of my home office into a new workspace staring at the Hong Kong border, really excited for this and already have some friends sharing the space!
GFA029. Happy Easter to everyone out there, hope the easter bunny gave you lots of treats in your Easter basket! I’m just wrapping up a jam packed weekend of Startup Weekend here in Shenzhen, China one of our most successful yet with over 140 participants right in the headquarters of Tencent internet company. Helping organize these events always inspires me to keep pushing and challenging myself in my own business endeavors – its just so full of energy!
GFA028. Thanks everyone for tuning in – spring is in the air, and Easter is coming – though not much celebration here, I honestly forgot it was coming until I was in Hong Kong – Hong Kong is so lucky, they get the holidays for both Western and Chinese calendars – they will have Good Friday off as well as Easter Monday off, while those in mainland China are business as usual!
