Little Stone Lion
A ray of golden morning light
shines upon the little stone lion
He once lost his way in dark nights.
But never lost his dreams
to explore the unknown land
He waits until a ray of morning light
shines upon him
My Story, Rising from Nothingness
The Cowardly Lion finds Courage in his Own Heart. – The Wizard of Oz.
I often pass by a Little Stone Lion in our village. It reminds me of the Disney movie "The Lion King": "Courage is the heart to explore and challenge without fear of any difficulties."
"Little Stone Lion" is not a traditional business book, it is also my personal journey of seeking the meaning of life, in the magic and beauty of the World, as a curious, imaginative, and courageous business entrepreneur.
It may change your business and life. Drop in with me. May the wisdom and knowledge found within these pages, like a beam of sunshine to brighten of the lives of all who read it.
My inspiration for business started with my dad. My dad was an engineer turned business entrepreneur. He adored me unconditionally. I loved him dearly and respected him hugely. My dream was becoming a scholar in business, not about doing business, to stand next to my dad. Sadly, he passed away before my dream became true. I went on my life as an Accenture management consultant for Fortune 500 companies. But I could feel a big void in my heart where my daddy hero used to reside in the bubbling of happiness. I could no longer fool my heart.
Looking back, my life in big corporations was comfortable, working on the exciting global digital transformation projects and the large and complex strategic sourcing initiatives for some of the world's most influential Fortune 500 companies.
However, I walked into business following my dad’s footprints eagerly and I naively thought I will feel him over there. My Green Energy Village LLC, a boutique management consulting business, was founded in 2011 with nothing more than a laptop and a vision, in our local Starbucks Cafe.
But I didn’t know I was walking on an untraveled entrepreneurship road.
This business, in solar, brought me to many places in the world, seeing many faces - happy or worried; and hearing many voices, kind or jealous.
My seeking led to a different path, unexpected. I was indeed walking on my own path, not on my dad’s path. While I was in constant self-doubts, but never stopped.
Years later, my dedication and expertise have grown my business to be a multi-million-dollar business, as a woman-owned minority-owned business built by an immigrant. Surprisingly, we earned the prestigious honour of winning the top solar brand award, and a top 10 solar technologies consulting service company in the United States.
I changed the status quo on how to run a business. A small and beautiful business earned its unique space among business giants.
I was amazed, thrilled, and felt blessed for not giving up prematurely.
