The main reason I’m in USA is for facilitating this weekend’s Seattle Startup weekend, arriving here in Seattle late Wednesday night after a roadtrip up from San Francisco w/ Attila. The energy has been extreme – about 130 entrepreneurs checked in – overbooked with 80 on the waiting list! I’ll have to be honest, I was a bit nervous, being …
Feel the Startup Revolution! From the Heart of it all in San Francisco
Maybe I just feel this global movement is happening in the startup world because I’m so closely entrenched in it. But I have to say, from what others say, as well as the new crowd funding legislation in America that will allow smaller investors to invest into early stage investments – its getting easier and more “liquid” for small businesses …
Getting Sweet Techie Gear in San Fran!
Jamming in as many meetings as I can during this short stopover in San Francisco, I was able to meet Kat from Modern Twist who came across my blog last week about how to import into China she emailed me while I was in Los Angeles. Going back and forth in emails, I realized I would be in San Francisco …
Arriving in San Francisco – Quick 2 days to maximize!

Bridging China + USA E-commerce in Los Angeles, First meetup event (test)
Yesterday afternoon we had a lot of fun and met a lot of new people at a last minute planned “China business workshop” in Los Angeles. I had thought it would be a good idea to get people together in LA to talk China business while I was in town – share stories. I love networking and bringing people together …

Victoria who’ve I been talking to on twitter and also dialed into their show via phone in the past invited me to today’s radio show. The show is moneyandmusicv.com Money and Music that is broadcast via gvbradio.com/money-and-music Global Voice …
Airplane Rides Are Motivational Sessions
Seriously, I don’t even bother trying to think I’ll sleep on these 14 hour flights. I am so excited and my mind is going a mile a minute. And I’ll be jet lagged anyway. So I use the flight to do a “brain dump” (thanks for that keyword Dustin!), cleaning up my notebook, writing blogs, reading books I’ve been meaning …

Signed The Papers, Transferred my First Business Over
Will be a quick post, but monumental for me. I’ve been blogging (i.e. complaining) about the the difficulties of winding down my first business, as a couple weeks ago, based on all the circumstances (“checkmate in USA operations”) as well as positive future in China social media and consulting, I MADE a decision to close it, that is what a …
Qualifying…Verifying, Focusing People in my Network. Job of Being a Connector?
I love networking, marketing, connecting. But lately, with this hyper-active networking throughout China and the world…I have been connecting some people who don’t click in the network. Some have kind of stretched the truth about who they are, their background. Others, maybe in financial distress, have refused to pay others I have connected. This happened also a few years ago, …
Fallen in Love with Social Media!
Seriously…anyone that knows me knows I’m a social media addict. When I started this blog in March 2007 the concept of Social Media as an industry and lifestyle didn’t really exist. While it wasn’t blogging, I first put this website online in April, 2000 – being ridiculed by my college fraternity brothers for having my own name as a website…. …
Everyone Pushing me to Sell USA Real Estate to Rich Chinese
As I continue to build up networks and host events, I am constantly pushed by companies to advertise to these members. Maybe this is a way I can “monetize” all this free work I have been doing. But its also somewhat of a distraction. Maybe its something I need to develop into a standard “reply” for those who are interested. …
China Business Meetup in Los Angeles, USA – Saturday May 12
Life is too short, since I’ll be in USA for Seattle Startupweekend, I may as well make some events out of it. I’m a bit nervous about this, as I haven’t hosted an event in USA since…man. 2006? But I have some good friends in Los Angeles, and instead of trying to set up tons of separate meetings, may as …
