How did Vivian start up?
I was independent and went to work when I was a student. I majored in tourism, I was motivated and wanted to succeed, so I soon showed that I am a practical and good person. Before graduating from university, I was signed a long-term contract by a foreign company with an ideal salary. This is the stepping stone for my work.

Being so young and talented, Vivian must never have failed, has that ever made Vivian proud?
Unfortunately, I have failed in financial investment.
Sorry for encountering Vivian's worries, through that failure, what does Vivian think about failure and how did you managed after the failure?
I like this question because it reminds me of my thoughts so I can remember the turning point of youth. A memorable memory after that failure, I had the opportunity to confide in a woman I admire, she comforted me: "In the old days, the concept of getting married before starting a new career was good. I improve myself before I get into the business. " The sentence was short, but I broke many things. Today, due to the economic and social development of young people, many people have started their career before getting married, many young people have made a lot of money but when they did dealing with those people, I see they still have many shortcomings such as filial piety, complacency. If I fail so early, I will avoid my complacency and control my aggressiveness, I will stop blaming myself because I understand, everyone in my life has at least failed once. And learned from failure, "failure is the mother of success".
There are always risks in the taking risk, from the failure I have the opportunity to meet successful people, they are willing to teach me about business experience.

I always understood that circumstances are not the most important thing. Sensitivity in business is important and it is a gift of nature for women, so my foresight or intuition is also one of the extremely useful qualities when starting a business joint. I am constantly trying to learn to increase my sharp intuition, yesterday's failures or shortcomings will be set aside and I will focus only on the future.
