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.
GFA030. Jeremy Hanks on the show, he is co-founder of Doba dropship platform and now focused on Dropship Commerce software. He has been visiting Hong Kong and China a few times now from America, and I was able to catch him during his few days in town for this podcast talking about e-commerce and dropship in America and looking into it from an Asian company perspective.
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!
