China Marketing: Think Deep, Not Big, and Add A Twist

One of the things which I frequently hear from first-time visitors to China is that “It is so big!” Sometimes, I hear this even from Texans, an American state which takes pride in being bigger than almost any other state, with the exception of Alaska. Westerners are not the only ones to fall victim to [...]

China’s Biggest Challenge for Developing the West

The Chinese government has done much to encourage the development of China’s west, particularly Sichuan province, which is the home to some 100 million people, making it larger in population than any single western European country, including Britain, France and even Germany.

How Much Can Chinese Bloggers Make From Blogging?

For most people, blogs are no longer exciting as they were in 2002, when they first burst on the scene.

Paul Graham Article on Large and Small Organizations and Happiness

Paul Graham has just published an excellent article called “You Weren’t Meant to Have a Boss”. He talks about many of the same ideas I have talked about on this blog, and why it’s best to work in small organizations if that is what most appeals to you, and works for your personality. This is [...]

Asking the Right Questions Before Diving In

A good way to find out how sharp a person is to listen carefully to the questions they ask. Smart people ask very sharp questions which cut right to the core of an issue, while less astute individuals kind of dance around the edges. Smart entrepreneurs ask the sharpest questions because often the success of [...]

How to Give Advice

With all the different political and business agendas fighting to get heard, it is often difficult to lose sight of what the truth is. This is true of China with the rest of the world, and also very true of the business world. When this happens, it’s very difficult to step back from the respective [...]
