Newsletter: Tombs Are Swept, Time to Get to Work

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.]

It was my birthhhhday Sunday, I’m closer now to 40 than I am to 30. I’ll hold the emotions and at the bottom of the newsletter today you can watch it in the video of the week if you’re curious!

Hope everyone had a good Tomb Sweeping holiday – businesses in China were closed down Monday and Tuesday, so don’t blame your Chinese supplier sales rep if she didn’t reply to you for a few days… And in the holiday spirit, this is a good article:
