China has a huge market and most western companies, and young entrepreneurs want a piece of that delicious cake. However, that’s not a simple task, especially without any connections. So, the problem becomes how to make these connections? Here’s how YiLu can help you take the first small step towards your big goals.YiLu can be useful in different ways, one of them is as a form of Mastermind. In this community, you have access to multiple Slack groups with different topics.
The members share interesting and useful articles and books about China. Sometimes a small piece of information is all we need to make huge progress.There are also weekly guest presentations where successful and influential entrepreneurs share their knowledge and experiences in terms of doing business in China. Not only that, but you also have the opportunity to ask questions in the end and even connect with these people on LinkedIn.
Another amazing thing about YiLu are the bi-monthly networking sessions. You can meet and connect with so many ambitious and talented people.
As the saying goes “Your Network Is Your Net Worth”. No matter how talented and smart we are, we still need other people to achieve great things.The next great feature is the Think Tank. This is especially useful if you are a young person without much work experience because it gives you the opportunity to work on real-life projects you can later add to your resume. Any kind of experience can help you get a competitive advantage in today’s ruthless market. It’s not only useful in terms of what’s written on your resume, but also in terms of developing new skills. After all, not our great ambitions, but our skills determine how much worth we can bring to the marketplace.
Last but not least, I want to mention the Mentor Club. If you’re interested in personal development, I’m sure you’ve heard that having a mentor is mandatory to achieve big goals. A mentor can save you lots of time, stress, and mistakes and help you get to where you want to get faster. The Mentor Club gives you access to mentors from multiple domains and industries that will give you direction and help you grow.In summary, YiLu is a community that gives you easy access to mentoring, connections, ideas, and like-minded people interested in doing business in China.
After all, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” The best part is that you determine how active you want to be. There’s nothing to lose, but a lot to gain.
