I’ve been living in Arizona since 1996 and have never heard about the titan missile Museum in Tucson, AZ. So I am so glad that I had chance to take a look at the only Titan nuclear missile museum in the entire USA. I was also able to sit on the commander’s chair that had chance to change the world.
It was a cold room with lots buttons that was built to destroy the enemy. I am so glad that the world has never changed in that way. Part of the trip was to become a board member of a newly announced private organization to collaborate between Taiwan government’s Technology & Science Department, Industry Park in Taiwan, the high tech companies and universities in Arizona. My duty will be facilitating the process to help bring high tech companies to invest in Taiwan and to bring talented people from Taiwan as exchange.
This got me exciting. The fastest way to get me ahead of the high tech startup game is to put myself into the game. I will have lots opportunities to meet with high tech company’s executives, university professors, Taiwan’s government officials and Arizona state government officials.
Is the missile ready to launch? Not really. the real Titan nuclear missile is retired. It will never be used to destroy the enemy and the world. It was amazing to see this giant monster and weapon in front of my eyes.
What is also interesting me has nothing about the missile. It’s the risk and opportunity I am facing. I will have chance to smooth my own startup process by utilizing OPM (other people’s money) and OPT (other people’s time).
There are so much to learn in the business world, but I am going to give my 1000%. With many other mentors leading me, I know I can succeed faster too.
Never Say Never!
I hate politician, but I end up become part of the political equation. I won’t pick a side, but I will use the political power to accomplish my goal in the fastlane way. I now need to learn how to become a lobbyist in the technology world. There is lots money to be made and lots achievement to be accomplished. I will be able to learn some real world business skills such as negotiation, resource arrangement, risk management and politician.
This is NOT a job. It’s giving before taking!
It’s too early to see my future with this organization, but I am doing it for all or nothing. I have nothing to lose. Really!
The reality is that those people get business done without social media. So it tells me that I will need to shut my mouth off in the virtual world and get down to the business.
With that being said, I need to restructure my own business model. You have to prove that your business worth much before using OPM and OPT.
I am ready to turn the key and push the red button! I hope you are ready too!
