Grow Your Business On a Global Level

Businesses of all sizes are now going global from day one. The internet and globalization have given us an amazing opportunity to step up to the plate and open ourselves up to customers (and competitors) from all corners of the globe. Sitting back in your home country and hoping everything will work out may work at the beginning, but you need to have a global plan.

You need to go global, from day 1. No more excuses. Period.

Why Did I Start Global From Asia?

I remember first landing in Hong Kong airport in 2007, with no idea where to go. I was lucky I had a couple university friends who were local Hong Kongers to pick me up at the airport and let me stay at their home. They were locals and didn’t understand how or why a foreigner would come here to do business. Getting mixed advice from so many people, I fumbled around and figured it out and improved as I went.

From expats bar talk, to smokey Chinese offices, to on the ground learning by making mistakes, I have pieced together all my knowledge and put it into Global From Asia. I hope and pray this saves you some of my hardship I went through.

For years I would learn and share tips about growing my international business from Asia from close groups of friends and business travelers. Even when I started this Global From Asia podcast (finally) in 2013, there was a lack of clear and direct information online about starting a Hong Kong business. Sure, there are English-language government websites, and a bunch of consultants sharing pieces of information with the pitch to contact them for their services, but nothing that was a neutral and informative source.

This is what I hope to achieve with Global From Asia. I want to be an unbiased, no B.S. source of information for you to open, operate, and grow your international business from Asia. And even if you’re not planning to do it from Asia, much of the information and interviews are fun and informative from anywhere in the world.
