    S1E7 What is it like to start a new job remotely?

    S1E7 What is it like to start a new job remotely?

    Although some sectors such as hospitality have seen significant job losses, there has been a forceful rebound in the job market as the pandemic normalizes and more and more positions are open for remote work. On the one hand, certain aspects such as training have proven to be problematic to do remotely. On the other hand, remote work has presented unprecedented opportunities for us to work as an international community and connect with people in different time zones.

    S1E6 What’s it like to keep moving forward in life?

    S1E6 What’s it like to keep moving forward in life?

    Visit life in Chinese.com for Pinyin-annotated transcript and English translation! My birthday is February 10 and it is today here in California. For me this is a time of self reflection and so I looked back at my birthdays from 2018 to 2021 and thought about what I was doing then and what kind of mental state I was in at the time. I remember all the frustration but also the satisfaction of overcoming those difficulties in life and I realized it was all part of the process of never-ending growth. That process is what keeps us young forever because we don’t age when we are propelled by ambitions and keep facing the challenges life throws at us. I hope you like this episode and don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast!

    S1E5 What’s it like to meet entrepreneurial friends in Shanghai?

    My experience with women entrepreneurship in China is one of the reasons I work with small business owners and women entrepreneurs in California today. To me, Shanghai seems like such a confident and modern city because of the confident and modern women living there.

    This land was made for you and me.

    For many born in the 90s in Beijing, getting a good college education is almost the single most important goal in life.
