GFA057. Deepak uses his base of Hong Kong, where he is focusing on his global furniture brand and also a pretty awesome coworking and startup academy space called Paperclip HK. He has tons of experience in import / export and will share how he got into the furniture and educational supply industries
GFA053. Speaking of Kickstarters – Martin is working with Julian Lee from Ambiclimate (we had him on Episode 46, on his Crowdfunding in Asia experiences) so it is awesome to see this coming full circle! I didn’t mention this on the show, but they launched their Kickstarter TODAY as I release this podcast, so support them if you can at http://www.ambiclimate.com/campaign today! I’ll be backing them once its live!
GFA051. Thank you everyone for taking the time out of your busy today to list – Global From Asia episode 51 – Just had a jam packed day in Hong Kong today – saw the new Ferris Wheel they installed and took a quick photo of it I’ll put in the bottom of the show notes – A bystander didn’t do the best job in the photo and my face is pretty dark but if you wanna check it out go to the bottom of the show notes in globalfromasia.com/episode51.
GFA050. Thank you everyone – hitting a small milestone episode #50 , thanks for following along and listening again. Working hard on the book – calling it Hong Kong Supercharged – and its over 150 pages now…. deep into company setup and operation here so I hope people like it once I release in …a month or so? Still too early to promise a release date.
GFA049. On the show 2 US government gurus dealing with helping businesses export and sell American goods abroad, Bryson Patterson from U.S. Small Business Administration and Paul Bergman from US Department of Commerce. I learned a ton, and even if you’re not American – you can get some of these benefits if you sell American goods abroad
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. Updates in the Hong Kong investment visa approval process and so I thought it would be a good chance to get him on the show. We went through the basics of it on episode4 – so listen there if you want that – but today we talk about some of the current challenges as the approval process for getting an investment visa here is tightening.

GFA037. Welcome everyone to episode 37 of Global From Asia! middle of June here and father’s day just passed. A special one for me as its the first time I’m a father on this special holiday. 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.

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.
