this year, i met jack ma at hupan university thisyear. “it’s not easy to stand here today. you must have paid lots ofefforts in it” he said to me.
this is the most ever encouraging inspiration for me in the pasteight years.
we started up from small business in field of photography. i knew itwell that i was just a it and knew nothing at all about the wedding industrythat i chose as career path after my graduation. lots to learn, includingphotography, makeup, suit and dress. therefore sometimes i doubted if i made awrong decision or not. after eight-year efforts, we have become a leadingcompany in this industry. now it’s not our target and concern to replace anyother in this field, but to prove to the world that wedding industry ispromising and will be prosperous. out efforts in it is worthy of socialrespect! and we shall make the best outcome out of it!
from china to the world in 2017
today we have our outlets opened in 40 cities in china and those inseoul, hong kong, taipei, singapore, jakarta, l.a., paris in 2017. we insist tobe the most expensive and the best in each country. i do remember the momentwhen we got into hong kong market, some counterpart scorned on quality weprovided just because we were a company from mainland, and even deludedcustomers not to choose us. nevertheless eric garrison from the u.s., myassistant, clarified when being interviewed in hong kong, “china has thebiggest and best wedding market in this globe. besides, it has surpassed allother countries in the fields of researches on wedding technology and onlinemarketing.” and things happened three months later proved his words. at then,we had become an outstanding company with top revenue in hong kong. lessons forcounterparts in hong kong are that it is no use to boycott. what they should dois to learn from others’ success.
those who are jealous are notreliable
now i have to say the key point of our good job is our toughness.you are faced with more obstacles and challenges than other people around butstill remain confidence, dare to challenge yourselves and won’t be afraid tostart again. we never show our jealousy to others’ happiness. because those whoare jealous aren’t reliable. on the contrary, we admire them by studying andlearning from their success. we are tough! we never give up! we always knowwhat the problems are and always learn from failures. it doesn’t mean that youshould never make a mistake. maybe you will do it again, but not afraid of itsince. even if something serious happens, just give it another shot! that’sjiahao’s spirit! once give up, there’ll be no more chance. this is also what iexpect you to have. the spirit!
i have to say it’s not me who make it great, but every member injiahao. you are great! whenever you set your foot in a new city and encounterwith brand new things and strong counterparts who have strived here for yearsand enjoyed timing and talents advantages. you are new hands with bravery inthis market, but keep growing and even become the market leader within simply ashort time. you are marvelous!
not every one in jiahao will achieve success. so i want you tolearn, to check and review yourselves, master future-use skills, overcome yourshortcomings. think more about future and make some plans accordingly. showyour values here. because that’s why you here. show your skills, your insight,your morals and take your responsibilities. then you will be respected.
we will benefit fromcompetitions. find some fun in them.
don’t put over too much attention on marketcompetitions. recently i had noticed reports from tv and fromnewspaper that the wedding industry is getting worse. indeed, we can seemany photography studios bogged down already.with deteriorated relationshipbetween china and south korea, many korean companies stopped their business inchina. “not a big deal! it’s good thing to be competed” i was thinking. you’llhave nothing to worry when free of any competition. so being competed will dogood to us. take it as a fun. at the same time, think more about our future.there’ll be chances and figure out solutions with insight.
don’t feel jealous if you didn’t do better in 2017. be positive andface it. here today, what i am writing to you aims not to teach you make money.personally it’s easy to make. however, i hope you all have belief inyourselves. believe you are no. 1 and have abilities to spread our happinessindustry to every corner in the world. by using the platform provided by thecompany, realize your dream and become a rich man!
greeting from l.a.
wish you all a happy new year!
