I believe that something, something is waiting for me there.
and I have to work hard to prove myself.
That was the tough experience.
so we gathered 50thousand US dollars from 18 founders.
我们从 18 位创始人那募集了 50000 美金。
For the first three years, we did not have even 1 dollar revenue from our business.
It was not easy.
Why it keeps on going ahead, going forward?
Because I received lots of email of thanks from the customer, they say this is such a great thing, we cannot pay you but this thing helped us. If you keep on helping us, one day, you will be successful. And I believe this.
Little by little, we built up our business. Little by little, we’re good on our ecosystem of the infrastructure. And now, after 16 years, we have a Alibaba group, We have a T-mall group,We have a Taobao group, We have Alipay.
"Is it anything that I can do to make the difference?"
And then we think about this, start to do it. I saw a lot of people, young people have fantastic ideas every evening. But in the morning, they go to the office again.
Being entrepreneur, you have to do the things before the other people do.
You have to wake up before other people wake up. You have to be more buried than the others.
Use instinct. Everything you do is to the need of the customer, to everybody, to any person.
Tomorrow is new. Make the move. Make action.
Whether investors believe this or not, whether your friends believe it or not, whether your parents, believe it or not, that’s not important. You believe it, your team believe it and worked day and night on this.
That’s all the things happen. Make enough mistakes. You fall, you stand up. Any mistake is an income, is a wonderful revenue. Don’t worry about the money. Money follow the people. People should follow the dreams. If you have a dream, just to go ahead.
I think nobody can conquer the world. We only can serve the world, either work for the others or work for itself. And I choose the way work for myself. Working for myself that means working for the society. If you really want to work for yourself, think about the others, because only when the other people successful, when the other people happy, you will be successful, you will be happy.
