Outcomes from a Business Legal Case in China – Global From Asia episode 117

Happy Tuesday morning everyone. Weather just doesn’t know what to do here in the south of China. Was freezing cold in Jan, like record cold….had a buddy Simon come over from Thailand for some business in Feb and said it was too cold so he left in a day – it did warm up for a couple weeks in late Feb – but now it’s freezing again. Wearing 2 jackets as I record here…. This is colder and longer than usual – I mean it does get chilly for a couple weeks every year – but this year is definitely colder and for a longer period time than all the years I remember here.

But I am keeping hot with our Cross Border Summit, every day some new news coming – Saturday April 16, InvestHK is backing us too, and we will get more and more visitors over from Hong Kong into Shenzhen – pretty exciting, for all the details on our first annual confernece check it out at www.Crossbordersummit.com

So today’s show we have back with us Steve Marsh – episode 24 if you want to roll back and listen to that, he was sharing about his China business maneuvers. He was just getting into a lawsuit with one of his staff who took his customer list, went off and started his own import export business and started directly competing with him – and Steve was kind enough to come back to us now that the lawsuit is over and share what happened, as well as what he is up to nowadays – lots of juicy tidbits and he is willing to answer any and all questions if you have em – so let’s listen in!

As Steve said, if you have questions for him – reach out to him or to me and he is more than happy to get back on the show.
