Facing the fierce competition, people have to make much effort to make a place in the society. Thafs what the Wangs experienced during the past 4 years.
There is a small grocery called Merry Mission near my community, and I noticed it since I moved there so I always visit it to buy some necessities and even until now, I seldom go to Walmart or other big supermarkets because Marry Mission already provides abundant products, from foods to daily uses.
I know how that grocery develops due to a coincidence some time ago. I left my keys home and had to wait for my parents, so I decided to eat some desserts in a bake shop in Marry Mission to kill time. A middle-aged man was selecting cakes and I just suggested him and complimented the taste out of kindness. He followed my suggestion and came to sit at my table so we had an interesting chat.
I was little surprised that man, Mr. Wang, is the boss of the grocery, and more surprisingly, he is very expansive. Then I knew that several years ago, Wang and his wife had to make more money to support their son*s education, so they came to Shanghai and opened a small grocery. The cruel fact is that they couldn’t afford hiring sales, so they got up at around 3am every morning to purchase fresh vegetables from farmer’s market and delivered to their own store then worked there as sales for a whole day until 10 at night. Gradually their products and services got the recognition from the customers, so they had the fund to open more groceries.
We didn’t had a very long talk but thafs enough to impress me. Now Marry Mission is a chained store there are 3 near my neighborhood at different gates. Every time I shop there, I think of that chatting and believe the Wangs deserve the achievement in return for their diligence.
1.What emerging industries do you know?
Firstly, energy saving and environmental protection have been critical topics of today. Secondly, new medicine can also be regarded as one of the emerging industries. With a comprehensively developed medicine system, the individual nation as well as the whole world can benefit a lot from these pharmaceutical advances. Last but not least, new energy, such as solar energy, geothermal energy and wind energy, has been under development, which should be fully utilized in further research and popularized throughout the world.
2.Where are companies often located?
Generally speaking, companies are often situated in the business strict of downtown because of convenient transportation, which can improve working efficiency to certain extent. Besides, located in high-level office buildings in the city center, the enterprises make it easy for people to find them. More importantly, an excellent location helps boost the company’s reputation.
3.What kinds of companies are there in your living area?
There are not so many enterprises in my living area because my house is quite far away from the city center. As far as I can see, there are some small private companies like travel and rental agencies, which can provide direct assistance for the customers. Also, logistics companies are quite common in the places around me.
4.What are important factors in making a company successful?
There are many factors in making an enterprise successful. Firstly, the company should be persistent and never retreat from setbacks and challenges. Secondly, products with outstanding quality are essential in deciding a company*s destiny. The huge market demand brought by these excellent products are the most important support and backup for the enterprise. Last b顷 not leastt a company must have a strong sense of social responsibility, otherwise it is easy for them to fall into traps and be confronted with failure.
5.Which do you prefer, family firms or non-family ones?
If I were to pick, I would go with non-family firms because they will not repel external resources and talents. I feel that working in family firms is likely to undergo enormous restrictions. To be more specific, it is difficult for the outsiders to integrate into the organizations. Besides, since the fate is always decided by family members in such firms, golden business opportunities tend to be missed without absorption of outside talents with extraordinary skills.
6.What kinds of qualities should a successful businessman have?
The qualities that a successful businessman should have are that he or she must possess extraordinary perseverance and vision because it is his or her duty to lead the whole company to engage in business battles. Besides, they should be flexible in making adjustments on strategies so as to be in tune with the times. Moreover, they should have courage and be decisive in making tough decisions after thorough consideration.
7.What do you think of charity organizations?
There are both merits and demerits of charity organizations. As for the benefits, the charitable organizations tend to be well-rounded systems, which provide not only financial support for those in need, but also various training courses to help people make necessary preparations for employment. However, the drawbacks can never be ignored. Some of the charitable organizations are haunted by corruption scandals, which has led the general public to worry about the transparency of the funds. Therefore, if the supervision system is able to be established by relevant administration, these organizations are doomed to play a vital role in alleviating poverty and other urgent issues of today’s world.
8.Has the industrial structure ever changed from past to now?
Yes, the industrial structure has undergone enormous changes from past to now. The over picture has been gradually evolved from labor-intensive, capital-intensive or resource-intensive industries to technology-intensive and knowledge intensive ones. Besides, the information industry has taken the lead with substantial multinational corporations playing vital roles in the industrial reconstruction.
9.Is the overall social climate an important factor in a company’s development?
Yes, the overall climate tends to play a vital role in company’s development. A company5s strategic plans should be under the guidance of the country’s economic environment, which is a critical part of the nation’s overall climate. Therefore, the national and regional economic growth strategies and accompanying policies are destined to exert deep influences on each enterprise’s growth, such as inflation rate and taxation. If the company neglected such orientations, they would put themselves under difficult circumstances.
