Rico Ngoma grew up in Canada and at a very young age realized being an expat entrepreneur was in his blood. After a trip to China and seeing the difficulty with finding how to source products in China for drop shipping and how to do business in China, Rico realized that he could assist other entrepreneurs on how to find a good manufacturer in China.
Rico Ngoma talks to us about his life since 2014 living and working in Guangzhou, China.
