1 on 1 Discussion – Strategies Between A Hong Kong and China Company Structure

Michael MicheliniPodcast0 Comments


Today’s podcast is just “me”. I had the pleasure to speak at China Mike’s (no not me!) Sourcing meetup in Chiang Mai, Thailand on the topic of setting up and structuring your Hong Kong and Mainland China business. I took the podcast mic and was thinking of you when I recorded – no slides as this is audio only – but I do reference them in the discussion so I hope it still helps. The slides and all the templates will be made available for GFAVIP members – we will link to that GFAVIP forum’s post. If you want to join a free webinar where we discuss this – check the link below

Thank you so much for listening! This one I hope is appreciated – I keep things real and try to share the story. Maybe some of the things were not too PC (politically correct) and I hope I don’t offend anyone. But to be honest – I used to worry too much about keeping everyone happy. If you try to keep everyone happy – then you will be miserable and no one will be happy. So I am taking a stand on the podcast and going to be a bit more “real” and putting it out there. Hope you enjoy and appreciate that.
