You won't hear these stories coming out of China anywhere else! Brian Miller, Founder of Easy China Warehouse, understands that things are tricky as an American business owner in China. And it's not getting any easier with COVID19 wreaking havoc for global companies.
This is a very different episode of INVESTTHIS, as I'm bringing you a different look at how an entrepreneur from Connecticut, made his fortune in China!
Brian started traveling the world after the crises in 2008 and ended up in China. He worked in manufacturing and learned the ways of 3rd party logistics. He found that there was a need for a middleman between manufacturers and the behemoth that is Amazon. He now helps companies distribute to third party warehouses or directly to their customers.
In today's episode, you will learn what it's like to be a business owner in China. The mysteries behind China's manufacturing and logistics will be revealed, allowing you a peek into a world most know nothing about. Brian and I also discuss the story and ramifications behind the Coronavirus, starting in Wuhan, China. Also, learn how current tensions are changing the dynamic for Americans working in China.
How Brian started Easy China Warehouse, which helps companies distribute to third party warehouses or directly to customers.
