10 day countdown


As I sit here in my home office – that I only just decorated and moved a PC into a few days ago, I wonder if my last minute spontaneous “It’s new year I need to make a change” idea was a good one.

In ten days I’m moving from Darlington, North East England to Shenzhen in China to see if I can build a new business.

I guess we all have something we think we will do one day but never do, I suppose I don’t want the never do aspect to bug me anymore.

I have been importing and selling online since about 2003. I owned and ran a successful business importing from Taiwan, Germany and the USA until about 3 years ago when the market changed.

I have been toying with a few things since then but I have been putting off making any real life changing moves perhaps because I’m human and that’s what we tend to do.

So this is my grassroots documentation of a young man looking to make money in China, you can follow my steps over a cup of coffee while you too may sit there deliberating some changes.

Oh, I hope you like my new logo…… YMC4Life 🙂

  3. God loves a tryer and you my son never stop trying. I admire your courage and determination. You have had some set backs, but you always pick yourself up and move on. We will miss you and worry about you. But, I have a gut feeling that you will make this work. Sometimes you do need to take one step back to go two steps forward. Wish you every success.
    I love you ever so much and am proud of you. Take good care of yourself.
