Learning from Crisis: Paige with Ron Sim
Join Paige as she talks with self-made sensation Ron Sim, founder and executive chairman of V3 Group, which includes leading brands, like OSIM, TWG Tea and Bacha Coffee in the well-being and luxury gourmet segments, along with holdings in capital markets, real estate, and integrated healthcare.
Ron grew up humbly, with his first job at nine years old selling noodles, but this fed his hunger to succeed and build a business, then products, and then to focus on the wellness sector – far ahead of the curve. His company today nurtures leading brands, and collectively, the Group’s brands and businesses claim over 5,000 retail spots in 118 cities, across 26 countries over five continents.
In this episode, Ron shares how in the early days it was really tough, without enough food to eat, but how he appreciates “growing up poor”, and he mentions his high regard for his role model mother, who taught him to “do good, stand up, and do the right thing”. He shares on each of the four crisis he has experienced over the last 40-plus years in business, why he believes in social capitalism, and how everyone who dreams of success needs to be a MAD COW (listen to have the terrific acronym explained), as well as his thoughts on the importance of economies of scale, education, philanthropy, and his optimism for the Asian market.
This exciting, educational, and amusing episode will have Ron thrilling you with his engaging stories and genuine zest for life. Listen, laugh, learn, and please share this one with your tribe, so we may and Pass the Power.
