more than five years ago, what shop No. 1 is? Just a concept, a dream, a vision, and put this concept into reality there is a huge gap, because the concept of if parked in the mouth is always just a concept.
: from the first threshold occupation manager to entrepreneur
in 2008, and my partner Liu Junling are DELL executives, a DELL global annual $18 billion purchase, a DELL China tube region sales, then we often get together, most of the time is to talk about work. Once, he pulled me to lunch together, this time did not talk about the work, but I hope to go out with him.

I argued with him that he had a career in the United States, from 0 to do over 1. He said it was the United States, China, and gave us a full more than and 40 minutes.
on the way back, I and mountains did not say a word. May all horse camp students in thought, I was not very frustrated, former executives are now suddenly encountered such a supercilious. I can tell the dark horse camp students, I do not have any frustration, the heart is only thinking about one thing: in the future I must prove that he is wrong.
