Where did the idea for MEBO International come from?
Family mission, bring organ regeneration science into application to benefit people.
What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?
Wake up 5 o’clock in the morning, go through news especially life science and politics news, set up a daily goal then spend the night with family and kids.
How do you bring ideas to life?
Transform life science from knowledge into culture by turning life science into theme and incorporate into my environment such as decoration and entertainment.
What’s one trend that really excites you?
Human Applied Organ Regenerative Science, which is what my foundation was set up for, to support research and project related to applied human organ regenerative science.
What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?
Before I go to sleep every night, close my eyes, spend 5 min to meditate about what will happen in future. This is a good way to reenergized myself after exhaustion from work, so my dream will never die and relive day to day closer.
What was the worst job you ever had and what did you learn from it?
I worked as a student in college lab before, but what I did was terrible and I couldn’t make the consistent focus on what to operate on the petri-dish level. Later on I found out that not every life science major college student will end up as a lab person, they can dream and pursue their own future.
If you were to start again, what would you do differently?
I would change my major in college from life science to business and minor in business because I felt that one most important component to commercialize science is the integration of business methods.
As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?
Never give up on what you try to do and are most passionate about, because you never know what’s happening at the end.
What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business? Please explain how.
You need to withhold a science which is exclusive enough to dominate others, when I say dominate, I mean it is able to satisfy three traits, absolute advantage on effect, unique way of manufacture and the accessibility of commercialization from scientific concept.
What is one failure you had as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?
I lost my vision due to wrong judgment on current and future situations. I overcome it by keeping the faith and believing in my future dream.
What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers? (this should be an actual idea for a business, not business advice)
If the future, life science is all about in situ organ regeneration which all required is the nutrient source to activate your body’s regenerative potential. My advice is to industrialize such nutrient source as the business model of energy capitalization.
Tell us something about you that very few people know?
I live in Los Angeles but I am a Dallas Mavericks fans.
What software and web services do you use? What do you love about them?
I like to use docstoc.com cause it is a great source finder for document which can serve as example for me to consider my own draft version of the same kind of article.
What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?
The Traveler’s Gift is the book I recommend people to read about cause it takes you back to the past and reinvestigate different era of history meanwhile let you reconsider how the decision can actually make consequential impact in future.
What people have influenced your thinking and might be of interest to others?
Besides my father who is a life devoted scientist, Ilya Pozin is the one who influenced me the most because from him I realized that mankinds are not as programmed robot in that you can always find new and creative route which relive yourself in a different way.
