It’s really a surprise today to see the picture of my daughter and me together on China Daily, they did not tell me there will be a picture:)
Emily, my 6-year old daughter mentioned in the story, was so excited to see herself in the newspaper.
I’d been on a phone interview last month with China Daily and talked about my consulting business (www.sinostep.com) and my life. The income part actually refers to the early days of my own business. It would be better if they let me check the article before the official publishing:)
The reporter asked me why I can grow from a $5/hour cross-border freelancer to an established strategic consulting business? Is there any secret?
It is simple: helping foreign clients find and verify their profitable niche markets in China.
Apart from my China Strategic Consulting Service, I am also running my Chinese column in Zhihu , and a WeChat public account (taohaibaobao), where I write articles sharing my stories and experience as a startup in cross-border consulting business. Chinese freelancers often come to seek for advice on how to become a successful freelancer with a decent life.
