China’s Social Entrepreneur Wu Shihong

One of my students, Pastor Shin sent me this article about this powerful lady, Juliet Wu Shi Hong… someone with no strong family background, no tertiary education, and on top of that, a woman, which in some parts of China is considered an inferior gender within the Chinese culture. She was a ‘nobody’ who made herself into ‘somebody’. 

I have seen so many people waste their time, instead of pushing themselves to grow, they choose to be governed by their fears, traumas, negative thoughts, opinions of others, low self-esteem and even laziness. I say this about others without being critical and humbly. When I read her story in these two articles below, I sincerely hoped that my blog readers would take the time to read and learn from this successful, self-made woman, who was under a difficult position in her life but chose to turn it into a motivational experience for self-improvement. 

Most successful people did not make it just by being smart. Anyone who reads at least three different biographies of successful people, will notice notable similarities between them, one being perseverance. Perseverance alone will not make you successful, but with it you can go further than most people… To not give up, but to keep going and find different avenues to achieve what you’ve set out to accomplish. We should never let a ‘bad experience’ bring us down, and definitely not let it keep us down.

I hope that by reading about Juliet Wu Shi Hong will inspire anyone who’s at a “I-Cannot-Do-It” mental state right now to think otherwise.

Jack Ma: If you’re still poor at 35, you deserve it!

Ambition is living a life of great ideals; a magnificent goal in life that must be realised.

In this world, there are things that are deemed unfathomable, but there is nothing in this world that cannot be done. The depth of one’s ambition determines the potential of one’ future.

The Story of Juliet Wu Shihong – one of China’s first-generation professional managers, who gained success by working her way up the ranks from a cleaner, a nurse, a marketing executive, through self-education and learning on the job.

 

She had been the general manager for the world’s most famous multinational IT groups’ Chinese branches (Microsoft 1985-1998; IBM 1998-1999). She is also China’s first successful international corporate executive to join the executive team of a domestic private firm. Wu was seen as a symbol of the new generation of business executives that China has produced in its economic reform and opening-up.

When Wu started off in a big company working from the lowest ranks, her daily job was to pour tea and sweep floors. Once, because she forgot her staff pass, the company’s guard stopped her at the door and denied her entry. She explained to the guard that she was indeed one of the company’s employees, and that she had merely left the building for a short while to purchase office supplies.

Despite her pleas, the guard still did not allow to enter. As she stood at the gate, she watched as those of similar age to her, but smartly dressed in business attire walking through without having to show their passes.

She asked the guard, “Why are these people allowed through without producing a pass?” The guard dismissed her coldly nonetheless.

That was the turning point for Wu – she felt great shame, her self-esteem trampled on.

She looked at herself, dressed in shabby clothes and pushing a dirty push cart. Looking back at those dressed in smart attire, her heart felt a deep ache from the sudden realization of the sorrow and grief from being discriminated. From that moment, she vowed never to allow herself to be shamed like this again, and to become world-famous.

Since then, she used every opportunity to enrich herself. Every day, she was the first to arrive at work, and the last one to leave. She made every second count, spending her time learning the ropes. Her efforts soon paid off; she was made a sales representative, and quickly progressed to being the regional general manager of this multinational company in China. Wu did not possess strong academic qualifications, and was revered as the ‘Queen of Part-timers’. Subsequently, she assumed the position of GM of IBM China. This is the Wu Shihong, the heroine in China’s business circle.

 

If not for the incident, Wu Shihong would not have had the ambition to become rich, and her life would have taken a very different path then.

  • You are poor because you do not have the desire to become successful.
  • You are poor because you lack foresight.
  • You are poor because you cannot overcome your cowardice.
  • You are poor because you lack the courage and determination.
  • With ambition you can overcome all inferiority and maximise your potential!
  • With ambition you can persevere, continuously learn new things and strive for perfection.
  • With ambition you can defy all odds, and create miracles when others daren’t.

No matter how poor your family is, do not doubt your own abilities and lose sight of your ambition.

  • When your family deems you worthless, no one will pity you.
  • When your parents do not have money to pay the medical bills, no one will pity you.
  • When you are beaten by your competitors, no one will pity you.
  • When your loved ones abandon you, no one will pity you.
  • When you have not accomplished anything by the time you are 35, no one will pity you.

Go big, or go home. Otherwise, you’re wasting your youth.

Wu Shihong: To be a Social Entrepreneur

For her generation, or men and women who started their careers in the reform era, she has done it all – from being Bill Gates’ first China manager to being the first to translate Nobel laureate and Bangladeshi banker Muhammad Yunus. But for her, something more exciting has just begun: “To be a social entrepreneur.”

Wu Shihong (known to her overseas friends as Juliet) says the words rather calmly. Yet that calmness doesn’t hide the devotion in her eyes. “That’s the way I’ve found for myself,” she tells China Business Weekly.

At the beginning of 2000, when Wu walked through the revolving door of TCL Group, China’s largest TV maker, she was already quite used to media praise.

She had been one of China’s first-generation professional managers – by working her way up from a cleaner, a nurse, a marketing executive, through self-education and learning on the job.

She had been the general manager for the world’s most famous multinational IT groups Chinese branches (Microsoft 1985-1998; IBM 1998-1999).

She was China’s first successful international corporate executive to join the executive team of a domestic private firm.

Wu was seen as a symbol for the new generation of business executives that China has produced in its economic reform and opening up.

Yet since she left TCL in 2002, she has kept a low profile. When she came back to the limelight at the end of 2007, she surprised the public again by being the translator of Yunus’ books about poverty-aid and micro-credit, and in her determined work with NGOs and NPOs in various social programs.

 

‘Social entrepreneur’

Wu says she feels proud of being among China’s “social entrepreneurs.” “The two words meld my past careers to my present interests and my social and philanthropic pursuits. They affect me greatly,” she says.

So what is a “social entrepreneur?” She gives her definition:

It’s a person who deals with a social problem in a similar way as managing an enterprise. Poverty-aid, social development, and even philanthropy should be understood as going somewhere, giving out money and things, and off you go, she argues.

“All of them need smart leadership and good management, because they don’t just distribute money, but should also generate development. To be successful and to grow into a sustainable process, they need as much entrepreneurship as a for-profit business does.”

Not every successful businessperson decides to shift their focus from making money to helping others make money. And certainly many do not. But from Flying Against the Wind (the title of Wu’s autobiography published in 2002) about her shift from corporate life to “social entrepreneur,” what was the cause of so much change?

“There have been ups and downs in my life,” Wu recalls, very calmly. “Life has taught me how important it is to be able to define my own way, and my own feeling of happiness, by working with others. As a businesswoman, I have seen all the fame and wealth that one can possibly see in her lifetime. But that shouldn’t be the end of a life.”

She says she spent much of the last five years, which she called her “rest”, reading classic books (of which some Buddhist readings are among her favorites) and considering the meaning of life.

“I was led by my reading experience to my turning point.” As she is saying this, her face is glowing with a kind of peace one seldom sees in the corporate office.

But her newfound peace is not just one woman’s own spiritual pursuit. It leads to action, and to facing challenges. It was in 2003, amid the national public health alarm for SARS, she decided that it was her moment to charge.

After persistent requests directly to the central government, Wu landed her a chance to volunteer with the Ministry of Public Health. She worked with the ministry’s international corporation division, and helped set up and manage some of the emergency conferences for international public health ministers to discuss the crisis-control measures.

“It is quite difficult communicating with different countries’ governments and companies,” Wu says. But the experience helped her learn how to leverage the power of the government, and the resources of the business community and the public, and to use all of them to solve a social problem.

Wu was glad that the campaign in which she played a part helped put the disease under control. And with that valuable experience, she began to spend more time thinking about how she can best use her managerial acumen for society.

“I had read some books about social responsibility to finish my MBA work. But that’s it. It was only when I felt the urge to do something that I felt the thirst for more readings and more information -about philanthropy and the management of non-profit programs,” she says.

Hence friends’ recommendation of her first book to translate – How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas, by David Bornstein, who also wrote The Price of a Dream: The Story of the Grameen Bank, about Muhammad Yunus.

One of the things that puzzled her was micro-credit and why it worked in some parts of the world but not in China. Hence, her second translation was Yunus’ Banker to the Poor, published in June 2006.

“I was so excited, and inspired, when I heard about what Yunus had done, by running a sustainable micro-credit business from his Grameen Bank, to help people earn their own way out of poverty. This is not just a business to lend money. It is to spark creativity. It is leadership,” she says. “I thought I must introduce his book to China.”

Translator

In the beginning, it was hard to reach Yunus, via electronic network. Then she turned to the traditional way of correspondence and posted a letter to him. “Juliet, how can I refuse such a pleasure? Go ahead!”, Yunus replied. These were the words which came to her in merely three days and have remained in her mind ever since.

Wu finished her translation in just two months. The Chinese book was published on June 2006, which “did not seem to arouse an immediate response”, Wu recalls.

But just four months later, when Yunus won the Nobel Peace Prize, Banker to the Poor, and Wu’s translation was soon on China’s bestseller list.

In the meantime, Wu began to embark on exploration tours, to rural areas in China’s frontier regions, working with different charity and aid organizations, such as the ALXA Society Entrepreneur Ecology, founded in 2001 by Song Jun, a Chinese entrepreneur, who invested 50 million yuan in the Moon Lake Ecological Tourism Zone in Alxa League of Inner Mongolia.

As for TCL, Wu says, she only goes back to it once or twice a year as an independent non-executive director.

Now she says she is “exploring a commercially sustainable way of operating aid and philanthropy,” and continues her reading and learning quest. Recently, she published her third translation, Capitalism 3.0, a book by Peter Barnes about issues in corporate social responsibility. “It encourages us to consider the future of our world,” he writes. “Everyone holds the social responsibility to protect our planet and our coming generation.”

For Wu, her active “rest” in the last five years has been like a “self-renewal”, a change from a leading corporate force to someone with the knowledge and experience, along with her contacts, to launch a loftier social enterprise. “Something more down-to-earth. Something more practical.”

But what is it? She smiles and says: “I’ll let you know when I’m ready.”

    Social entrepreneurship is the best of both worlds. We solve social issue and at the same time we do it with a business acumen and efficiency. Business cannot survive if it is not run efficiently. Well done I do hope to hear more about her.

  2. Edwin Tan on Jun 5, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    Wow…just reading the articles left me speechless.

    She is a good role model in such harsh times in the corporate world.

    Knowing how she rose from her previous, she dedicates herself to helping people.

    Great!

    This lady is truly inspirational. We should not allow our self esteem (ego) to lead us to our downfall if it is trampled over. We should decide to enrich ourselves and become stronger.

    Wow….In Thailand, priority seats are given to Buddhist monks, that’s wonderful. Monks in Thailand are well respected by many with the majority of Thailand practising Buddhism. We could see monks everywhere in Thailand. Most public transport in Bangkok has seats marked for monks. We used to see signage board stating elderly persons, disabled persons, pregnant women, and children were given priority. Priority seats have been designated in public transport vehicles such as train, bus monorail and other transport operators . It rare to see signage should yield their seat to the monks. I have yet come across such signage yet in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Meeting Rinpoche and receiving gifts such as Green Tara tsa tsa is indeed so fortunate. Due to Rinpoche generousity, helpful and compassionate nature, Rinpoche will always have gifts with him while travelling. Hence where Rinpoche goes and meeting any people around, Rinpoche will surely share Dharma and giving out gifts. LeeAnn the lady owner of Early Bird restaurant in Willow Creek, North California whom Rinpoche met had received Green Tara tsa tsa. Thank you for the wonderful sharing .

    While this is a scary thoughts to discover the common hazards in our homes comes from our convenient purchase of household products. Many of us know that, household products, including cleaning supplies often contain agents that can be very harmful to us and stored them safe to help protect our kids without realizing our health actually.

    Thanks you for the article sharing, it’s great to understand health and wellness is not simply about diet and exercise, but be aware of the exposure to toxic that applies in our daily life. I’m aware of all the items shared and will take action to limit and remove them. If possible will try to explore further to replace with natural alternatives.

    Urgelling Monastery is a small Buddhist monastery in Arunachal Pradesh, northeastern India, a recognized region of the Indian subcontinent. Wow….this place is the birth place of Tsangyang Gyatso, the Sixth Dalai Lama. It was established in the 15th century with amazing story behind the monastery such as the walking sticks of the Sixth Dalai Lama. The monastery is indeed of great historic importance, for the people of Buddhist faith. A beautiful and scared place to go for pilgrimage . Looking at the beautiful pictures tells us all.

    In the Buddhist tradition, the purpose of taking refuge is to awaken from confusion and associate oneself with wakefulness. The first step in practicing Buddhism is taking refuge in the Three Jewels. Taking refuge means relying on these Three Jewels so that they become the main focus of our lives. Once we have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, we should not take refuge in any other religion nor blend Buddhism and other religions. Taking refuge is a matter of commitment and acceptance and, at the same time, of openness and freedom. By taking the refuge vow we commit ourselves to freedom and to give up our attachment to basic security. Go all the way nor matter what happened along the way to achieve our ultimate goal in our spiritual path. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The heartbreak of grief is the hardest. The death of a loved one who was a meaningful part of our life can absolutely lead to significant shifts. Those people in deep sorrow at the loss of a loved one need mental support and a lift up. Having Rinpoche blessing the mind of the deceased and let them have a …good rebirth is really beautiful indeed. That’s the time the family of the departed needs most the company of friends and so forth. The behind scenes of Rinpoche did was really touching not only the Dharma teachings, Rinpoche will go all the way to help the deceased family, spending every minute of every day thinking, working and acting for the benefit of all around him and many of whom he hardly knows.
    Thank you Seng PIow for sharing the look behind the scenes of what Rinpoche does.

    Meditation has been shown to have mental benefits, such as improved concentration, happiness, memory, self-control, academic performance and more to go. Even researchers found that meditation may have other health benefits as well, including improved metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and blood pressure .Consistent practice over the long-term can boost our empathy, resilience and compassion too. Having just ten minutes is good enough for us all and powerful.
    Its good to do death meditation when we still have the time now. Visualizing our bodies actually decaying and on death will be good. It is a good practice to do so before the time is up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Tibetan sacred dance, Tibetans referred to as a journey into the religious and folk traditions. Tibetan culture of oracular trance has a great significance as them, where the Tibetans will seek divine help and blessing. Tibet was one of the few places where traditions continued virtually untouched and unspoilt. They do believe the spirits descend from the mountains and enter the bodies of mediums who have inherited the role, celebrated in all the villages. On that day the villagers will dressed up colourfully to welcome the Mountain Gods and join in the dances as well.
    Reading this interesting article tells us more the Tibetans do practice spirit worship centuries ago, so as the Tibetan oracles been practice . The Tibetan Leadership believes that Dorje Shugden is a spirit , hence why not they ban all these mountain gods spirit worship too. Dorje Shugden is definitely not a spirit but a Dharma Protector bound by oath. Dorje Shugden is being used as a scapegoat by the Tibetan Leaderships for their own agenda.
    Thank you Rinpoche, for this insightful sharing.

    I am blessed to see the amazing and best 10 meditation retreats in the world. I believe it is such because of its rich and long history with pure spiritual practice and way of life, culture and religion.

    Traditionally all retreats has a beautiful landscape and quiet environment for anyone to have more freedom, peace and happiness in our daily life. It is also a chance to nurture our inner growth as it’s take time to look deeply in order to transform both our individual difficulties and the difficulties in our society.

    We are so fortunate with Rinpoche kindness to have a similar retreat for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Such a great place to practice dharma in nature with walks, breath meditations and fresh air.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and giving an opportunity to explore the beautiful retreats in the world.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

    3 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin.

Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
