Wendy and I talked with three senior guys in the media industry in a cafe near the Shanghai Railway Station. They are in their 40’s and experienced the change of Shanghai. Since I am new to the classified business, they provided guidance and shared their experiences with me in a very candid way. They acted as a tunnel for me to travel back into the history of Shanghai for the latest 20 years. My direct feeling is, it is so nice to be in Shanghai.
The businessmen in Shanghai are very down to earth. They calculate everything, plan everything in a thorough way and execute it in a solid manner. They also willing to offer help to young people like me. This is the spirit of Shanghai. Although at the very begining, people may feel Shanghai people are too focused on small money, small things, on the other hand, it can be treated as solid ways of doing things.
Getting back to home around 11:30 PM, driving on the elevated highway of Shanghai and got to the center of the city. The whole city is still bright with cars moving to every directions. There are much more than the view in this city. The spirit keeps inspire me to do something solid. Shanghai is really the place to do something solid.
