    Have you ever had this feeling that your supplier is getting slower at responding?

    Well, this week, I did an online presentation discussing the different scenarios why your supplier might be slower at getting back to you, and how you might be able to fix that!

    What drives entrepreneurs... | Ep.034

    What drives entrepreneurs... | Ep.034

    This episode is different from the others because it doesn't cover specifics on sourcing and developing products in China…

    It does delve deeply into what makes entrepreneurs successful, and I share some of my own personal background stories and journey. So I’m opening up and sharing it all in the hope you find some inspiration and motivation.

    Do they say the shortcut to success is great mentors? I couldn’t agree more.

     Also knowing who you are, and leveraging those traits in business is key.

    Matt Brauning from the Driven Entrepreneur is an amazing podcast, and his interview went in a direction un-expected to me.

    I hope you enjoy it. Let us know if you have any questions, and you can subscribe here for Matt's podcast.

    I wanted to share a recent interview I did on another great podcast called The Business of ECommerce. Charles Palleschi, the host of this podcast, asked me some really insightful questions that really drill down into the day to day specifics of Sourcing Products from China.

    We covered MANY different topics, including :


    How being on the ground in China creates opportunities

    How having “trusted” third parties is essential

    How to protect your IP in China by registering your trademark

    How and when to negotiate on price with the factory

    How “What you don’t say” could be your biggest problem

    How to build your team in China?
