I think sometimes as an entrepreneur you need to take some risks and make some moves. If Hong Kong is a good place for you to base your operations – get over here and make it happen! There are a ton of great people who will support you, don’t find excuses. Its a new year in 2016, get on that airplane and let’s go!
