In Episode #36, we are joined by Lingling Zhang, a Presidential Diamond Wellness Advocate with doTERRA International LLC. We discuss:
Lingling’s experience moving from China to the U.S., including how she was received in the U.S. and how her decision was viewed by her Chinese colleagues.
The IT (information technology) industry in China vs. the U.S.
How Lingling’s IT experience prepared her to succeed after her significant transition away from IT and into health and wellness.
Why the prevalence of health and wellness companies, including those focused on essential oils and other nutraceuticals, have been increasing and will likely continue to increase.
The challenges of overseeing and managing a team across multiple countries and time zones.
How dealing with individuals across borders makes those international borders matter less and brings people together foremost as people, no matter the languages, countries, or cultures.
