thank you everyone for tuning in today – it is getting HOT down here in South China these days in mid march – but I’m really happy to switch the jeans for shorts – so no complaints on this side.
I’m getting prepared for my first webinar for this show – it will be on April 2nd (my birthday) 9am- will be some gifts and giveaways so check it out. For the timing – I had trouble picking what time is best as we have people listening around the globe – so if this time doesn’t work for you and you want to go – send me a note at [email protected] and i’ll take it into account for future webinars.
I had a great call with Howie in Canada last week, and he was asking about Amazon and building his own brand, well his daughter’s summer project – which i think is so awesome – and also this has been a hot topic – so I am going to focus more on upcoming shows on this and today we have a fun and experienced guest in this arena – PJ Entrepreneur , yes – his last name was legally changed to Entrepreneur! I have confirmed it by checking his passport with my own 2 eyes, ha! That just shows us how passionate he is about entrepreneurship. He has been here in China since 2009 and I have known him since about the time he came to shenzhen – he is always mentoring and sharing at many entrepreneur events and today he’ll share some experience and stories about brand building in China.
OK and now for this week’s show:
