Hey All, this episode is another interview that Mike made in the CHat conference back in Shanghai Interviewing Michael Chee from Fresh Prints
You thought you need a website and different social media channels to run a startup? Think again, because the weeks guest does it ONLY using WeChat.
Mike and myself (Shlomo) have sometimes hard time coordinating the recordings. we are not on the same time zone.
This time when recording the intro we were really in a rush. I'm sure you can hear this in our voices :)
Also, Mike had a chance to meet two of our listeners (Tim from Australia and Phillip from Beijing) in shenzhen which is great. For the rest of you, let us know if you are around!
Anyway, hope you enjoy!
