I'll be taking a break from my blog this coming week for an exciting reason: I'm off to China to meet with Chinese entrepreneurs, government officials, artists and non-profit leaders. Most of my time will be spent in Beijing, the cultural soul of China, and Shanghai, the financial go-go capital of the country. This will be the first time I have ever ventured to China so I'm very much looking forward to a deep dive into the country's culture, economics and people. A full report to come.
