WE EXIST FOR YOU

  • Want to upgrade from freelancer to entrepreneur?
  • Want to start a company?

The best way to be successful with your venture is by learning the true experiences of others who have already done it.

As soon as I received my diploma in May 2008, I sold everything except the clothes on my back and moved to Wuhan, China.

12 years later, I’m extremely grateful for all the incredible experiences I’ve had.

My entrepreneurial journey began with an accident, but led me to this moment in time.

I’ve created this community for aspiring entrepreneurs so we can dive deep on all parts of the rollercoaster ride we’ve decided to get on.
