I'm from Shanghai, one of the modernest cities in the world. It is rich in culture and vitality. I studied International Business, and I decided to go abroad to study after my graduation. So I came to the US at age of 22, by myself, finished my MBA degree in Global Business Leadership with an emphasis on Marketing in a period of 2 years. I really like the city where I went to school at. Providence, Rhode Island, gave me a good taste of New England’s culture, also offered me time to vest my education into an execution plan for my future. I moved to New York City in 2012 after graduation. I was looking for a job that can particularly help me grow and train me to become the best individual in this field one day. Life is a great experience, I appreciate the unknowns, and so far it’s been quite great. Learning from my mistakes and standing up from where I fell allowed me to become better every day.
The one person that motivates me to be better every day is my daughter.
I’m thankful for the opportunity this industry has allowed me to have and the chances to make a change in many people’s lives. My goal is to have 20 offices by 2018.
I live by these words: “The human being has no limitations.”
I’m Originally from Brooklyn, NY. I went to school in NYC for business. I worked as a retail manager for a few years until I couldn't grow anymore. Working in retail was not my ideal career. I worked long hours with no overtime and missed out on all the holidays. So I explored other options and stumbled upon marketing and fell in love with it. Humility is the biggest lesson I've learned ever since I joined this industry. I've always been a bit of know-it-all, but pursuing knowledge aggressively and being open to feedback helped me to mature. I am grateful for the people I am surrounded by. My mentors and my team have helped me grow and bring out a side of me that I've never expected to see before. I take pride on being the first college graduate in my family. My parents immigrated to the US in the early 80's and came from humble beginnings.
Being successful will always require a tremendous amount of hard work. So I started sooner than later and I will continue to work hard until I have everything I want. After successfully building my marketing career, My goal is to go to school in Seoul, South Korea, for fashion and pursue my dream goal of opening my own clothing line.
I live by these words: “Learn from mistakes, embrace them and impact others on the lessons that you’ve learned”
I was a little bit of everything, not even going to lie. I was in the photography business for a while. Jumped into an office space, didn't like it. Jumped into the film industry. Loved it but couldn't continue fully, so I went into teaching. I think everyone secretly has a passion for teaching. And when, I figured it wasn't for me, I went into management and couldn't deal with the industry I was working in. So I went into this business. And man what a business this is. I got started in this business when soul searching. I needed something to match my ambitions. Ever since, I have learned that complacency, being lazy is the biggest career killer ever, In every industry you work in. I have improved my management model to be more concise, more articulate. I think experience and making mistakes have made me better myself and better others working with me. Self improvement means improvement for all isn't it?
I talk big picture all the time. The business allows all of us who are willing to out in a 100% to make it big. Big is all we do! Go big or go home. It is always nice to be around like minded people as well. It helps the group when we all look after one another and encourage one another when things get down. My Goal is to keep finding goals. There are way too many things to do in life and the world and to stop at one destination doesn't seem to make sense to me. Keep finding more goals, keep going and experience more.
I live by these words: “Smile and spread the idea”
