Apologies for the lack of posts lately! I promise to continue to share great stories on a consistent basis from now on as there is never a lack of inspiration.
So yes, I love watching TV. Hence wanting to launch a section in this blog that is dedicated to telling the stories I stumble upon flicking through channels. I love tuning into interviews of people who’s made a mark in this world. It doesn’t have to be a deep carve, just something that people will look up to them for. The talk show I was watching just happened to be interviewing the founder of Eslite http://www.eslite.com/ and his daughter (who is also deeply immersed in the business). This spiritual harbour of Taiwan is in its 23rd year of operations and is expanding to Hong Kong with the dream to become the go-to hub in a new territory.
Through the conversations, it’s not easy to be captivated by the persistence of this seasoned entrepreneur. His literature business aspires to bring people together to a space that is mobile. The design of the store breathes the brand values and the staff at Hong Kong’s flagship Eslite has been through a 6 month training program before debuting in front of the customers. He believes in what he does and the vision behind his brand. More importantly, he invests in people: his staff, his customers; ultimately shaping the business into a cultural artifact.
Being seasoned comes with experience, his words of wisdom included:
- Do not equate yourself to an object or incident.
- Wealth should not neglect the importance of health. Enlightenment can found within both existing simultaneously.
