EP #015 – Be Willing to Take Risks With Li Lin

Li was born in China and moved to the United States when she was 10 years old. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies from UC Berkeley in California, she took a backpacking trip in Asia for a month.

Upon return, after getting fired from more than two jobs within a year, she was inspired to start her own business. Today, Li’s personal passion and profession is working with immigrants in the United States to help them land their dream H1B jobs.

Erratum: The guest introduction during the podcast says: “trip in Asia for a year.” That’s inaccurate, the host got it wrong. The guest introduction during the podcast says: “fired from two jobs within a year.” Li was actually fired from more than two jobs.
