I am 27 years old with about ,000 to use in Shanghai. I really have no concrete plan but to learn Mandarin and business.
It will be hard to learn Mandarin but I am Asian (not Chinese) which should give me a little, if any, advantage. Also, I do plan on staying for about a year and with a little schooling I should be able to pick it up somewhat… My question is, what would you do if you were able to speak Mandarin and how would you utilize those skills in business?
I would like to also do business in China. I’m not sure how hard it will be to find products to export, but the possibilites are lucrative. If you have any first-hand experience I would love to hear from you with any advice greatly appreciated.
I will be leaving to Shanghai in about 3 weeks with no plan but to learn Mandarin and do business. Do you think this is a good idea?
It looks like I will be making my move. Any other suggestions/advice?
