The entrepreneurs shared that when students graduated, there will be a lot of pressure, the pressure tends to make people forgetting the meaning of life, which is happiness. To get happiness in your life, one of the things you have to do is to follow your passion. Love what you do and do what you like, in doing business, we have to choose the right partner, just like choosing your spouses, you have to complement each other, and if you cannot work together, find another partner that will bring out the best of you.
In the market place there will be a lot of opportunity, you will meet a lot of people, grasp every opportunity and be nice to everybody, because it would help you build a good networking and business relations. In International Business you will find a various opportunity and problems, there will be difference in opinion and perspective, but you shouldn’t be stuck on it, but you should overcome it and broaden your view.
