How blue-chip innovators remix business models successfully in China? What are the capabilities that these innovative companies acquire? How they harness the necessary resources and navigate around legal restrictions? How do they attract, train and retain talent? How do these companies experiment with innovative approaches and also manage the risk of innovation? What are the lessons learnt and how would these entrepreneurial innovators advise others who are embarking on the same journey?

Human beings often struggle to find a life filled with passion, happiness... and just plain goodness. This struggle drives many to depression, addictive tendencies, or even self-destruction. Author and New Thought minister Edward Viljoen argues that the struggle need not be an arduous or painful one - that through garden-variety acts of kindness, faith, and compassion we can create beautiful lives. Using stories, personal examples, tips, and exercises, this book will guide the reader to realize that wherever they are, they can create meaning and beauty in their life and in the world. Viljoen provides deep insights into how we can live happier lives including: -How life is a paradox of both wholeness and brokenness-How caring about the ordinary things causes extraordinary life experiences-How society's messages about perfection distract us from our ordinary goodness-How faith is a muscle that must be exercised-How in moments of exasperation we sometimes lose our composure, and how that is nothing to be ashamed about-How ordinary goodness leads to a redefining of DivinityPeople spend much of their lives trying to be fulfilled and happy. What this book shows is that this is attainable - nothing extraordinary required.

James E. Hughes, Jr. Family Wealth. Keeping It in the Family--How Family Members and Their Advisers Preserve Human, Intellectual, and Financial Assets for Generations
The landmark book that changed the way exceptional families think about their heritage, their wealth, and their legacy to future generations–now revised and expanded. Every family, looking at the next generation, hopes to confer advantages that are more than just material and financial–to inculcate character and leadership, to inspire creativity and enterprise, to help all family members find and follow their individual callings, and to avoid the financial dependency and loss of initiative that can all too often be an unwanted consequence of financial success. Yet many families never succeed in realizing that vision, much less sustaining it for three, four, or five generations and beyond. James Hughes has thought deeply about these challenges, and his insights are at once practical and profound. For more than three decades, he has personally guided multiple generations of families in creating strategies to preserve their human and intellectual capital as well as their financial assets. His teachings synthesize insights from psychology, anthropology, political history, philosophy, economic theory, and the law, with examples ranging from Aristotle to cutting-edge social science theory. His ideas have been taken up by numerous exceptional families, by their advisers, and by scores of authors, practitioners, and academics who have found value in the methods he pioneered. The first edition of this book, privately published, became a word-of-mouth classic. Now, Hughes has updated and substantially expanded it with new chapters that challenge conventional notions of wealth and offer guidelines for conserving family assets in the broadest senses. Filled with tested principles and practices for family governance and joint decision making, it is a rich source of workable wisdom that family members can put into practice today, to the enduring benefit and gratitude of future generations.
