In vlog by Michael Michelini0 Comments

As the Cross Border Summit event is fast approaching (actually post-editing it was last Friday!) I’m getting super busy – and of course many people are just hearing about it for the first time.

Celebrating Easter Sunday in China It is hard to be religious while living in China. Especially living in a Chinese household (father in law, wife, kids mostly localized) – but I do try to recognize the holidays I grew up celebrating.

Finding Your Passion, Growing Your Talent, and Making it Sustainable

In motivation by Michael Michelini0 Comments

Here are my reflections from participating in the GIFTED Seminar. I took part in the seminar after the Abnet Easter lunch on April 16, and was pleasantly surprised with what I learned.

How Will People Remember You When You’re Dead?

In vlog by Michael Michelini0 Comments

Today’s video blog originally started about my being on a panel about personal branding, but somehow turned into how people will remember you when you’re dead. I guess there actually is a connection between the 2. A brand is something that people say about you (or your company, or your product) when you’re not in the room. At your funeral, …

The Times We Live For – Mike’s Blog 086

In family friends, vlog by Michael Michelini0 Comments

We should all take our birthday as a time to reflect. I remember when I was living at home, I would come home from school and my mom would have stacks of baby photos piled up on the living room table for me to review. I had no recollection of those photos – those early 1980 blurry kodak photos of …
