Hey there! It’s Mike and I’m back from Asia. I’m going to take today’s episode as an opportunity to give an honest account of my trip. For full disclosure, I was given a ticket to this event by the event coordinator. Meghala Bhardwaj was a guest on our show awhile back. The conditions she gave were I had to give an honest reaction and review of my experience. I was going to do that anyway, so it was a win-win for me.
I was gone for a month, which is the longest I’ve been in Asia. Unfortunately, I spent this trip incredibly sick. So, I missed the Global Sources meet-up, but that was it. I really pushed myself to get out and network and I had some really great interactions during this trip.
I attended two major trade shows while I was gone:
- The Global Sources Summit
- The Canton Fair
I heard some good speakers and got some really useful practical advice.
Here are some of the things from today’s episode:
- Phases 2 and 3 of The Global Sources Summit. My experience, the speakers, and the networking.
- Great advice I received about dealing with Chinese manufacturers.
- Useful information for selling internationally.
- My biggest takeaway from The Global Sources Summit.
- How I celebrated my birthday.
- My trip to Cebu and the office I have over there for my employees.
- My awesome Filipino workforce.
I will be attending Sellers’ Summit in Fort Lauderdale, FL this month. I will speak on Friday and host a Mastermind on Thursday. If you plan on attending, I will see you there!
