Today we’d like to introduce you to Lily Zhou.
Lily, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born and raised in China. Came to US when I was 17 without knowing a word of English and absolutely had no fear. Built and ran The Orient Chinese Cuisine at age 23. Sold in 1996. Started Lily Zhou Financial services in 1999 and became a real estate broker since 2005. Launched the first Chinese Television on Mobile Phone in 2005 Oct. while very few smartphones yet. Worked with former president of Philippine Fidel V. Ramos to bring Philippine TV to mobile phone. Started many companies and sold three in the past 30 years. I love sharing my passion and inspire people around me. Started theZmedia Inc. in 2009 to inspire youth to be great future leaders and entrepreneurs. In 2017, I organized and hosted the first Global Women Entrepreneurs Summit (the summit) in San Diego. The same evening, we gave $10,000 to a young fashion designer from Equatorial Guinea for best design. Our goal was to inspire young designers in the world to share their culture through their designs. I am one of the planning committee member for Kyoto Prize Symposium (second to the Nobel Prize in the world) since 2014. Brought Steve Wozniak to our gala in 2014’s. Serving five boards and two committees currently. Taught MBA students at SDSU Global Business for the last two years.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I don’t think of road as smooth or rough but simply a journey. I enjoy innovating new and effective ways to solve problems.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with theZmedia Inc – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
theZmedia Inc. is a social platform to inspire young minds to be great! My real estate broker is the sole financial funding to help with summits and awards. I also coach business owners and professionals to achieve more. I am most proud of my company is that I help change people’s life. What set me apart is that I am passionate about helping people. My daily learning helps me to see the world as one and I connect many people and businesses globally.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Continue learning and sharing my passion to help people to live a meaningful and happy life. I am working on putting together the Women Economy Forum in San Diego to help women to thrive.
