It is hot and humid, feels great to be back in the South of China in mid-July. The two weeks in Europe was a much needed “China break” but I am ready more than ever to rock for the rest of the year here in China and Asia.
Which brings me to an interesting announcement – I have mentioned on some previous episodes I am now a partner at the Enter China community, a members community of product manufacturers in China – and we are hosting a live webinar on August 4th giving tips and tricks on finding the right factory for your crowdfunding campaign – to learn more and signup go to globalfromasia.com/enterchina
