Just Passed on a Great Opportunity….

In usa by Michael Michelini6 Comments

I cannot disclose the name of the company, or the details…..but I have to get it out of my head. For a few weeks I’ve been considering an offer to become CEO of a company back in USA. My main skill to bring would be sales, marketing and streamlining business processes.

But I just cannot leave what I have developed. Sure, there are hard times. Its a struggle. But I love:

  • International Travel / International Business
  • Internet and Ecommerce

I did not see that opportunity there, and even if I could part time do some of these online businesses, it just would not be the same as what I am doing now.

I have to suck it up – I have to keep the good fight to build this online international ecommerce network.

Also, I am getting a name as an American businessman in China (you can even google it, I think I’m top 5 or so)…..to become an American businessman in America……am I losing the value and the differentiating factor i’ve been working on for so many years…..

but the person who offered the CEO position was a good friend of mine….and I wanted to work with him, and thought we could have achieved great things. He understands….and I hope he can do well with other candidates or options. I just can’t stop what I’ve got going on – international business and ecommerce is where I belong!

Short post, but reflecting…..

I cannot take every opportunity, I have to make choices and deal with it.
