Conquer the Dragon

Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]

And Russell Smith, the talented editor who helped edit the HK Supercharged book, gave me a great review on his Facebook wall (and I didn’t incentivize him at all – can’t figure out how to link to a facebook post so here’s a screenshot, thanks buddy!

Til next time,
