Alibaba, Opens On The New York Stock Exchange
I was highly impressed with Jonathan Lu. CEO of the Alibaba Group having been introduced to him for the first time, this morning, listening to him being interviewed on CNBC television.
I do not routinely watch TV, however after showering at the gym; I caught a glimpse of the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange and learned Mr. Lu was releasing an IPO for his company. Alibaba, was a name I had heard mentioned over the last few days, however I had no idea what it was. For some reason, I thought they were referring to that guy on CNN; what’s his name? (Ali Velshi) :)
I have since learned that Alibaba
…is a privately owned Hangzhou-based group of Internet-based e-commerce businesses including business-to-business online web portals, online retail and payment services, a shopping search engine and data-centric cloud computing services. Wikipedia
In any event, I was highly impressed with Mr. Lu, who was immediately interviewed by CNBC right after the opening bell. He spoke about his priority at Alibaba being service to his customers, secondarily his staff and lastly his shareholders.
I think that is real cool. Rarely, do you hear CEO’s in the financial media talk about their customers let alone their staffs.
When I thought the interviewers pressed him on a couple questions, he remained calm and collective. He was reluctant to directly say how he intended for this country, the United States, to benefit from his company. He said he wanted to direct his company’s efforts at assisting Africa, Southeast Asia and Europe, the later of which I felt he whispered cautiously and then added, I think, he suggested that small busineses here will benefit as well.
Because of his passionate concern for his customers and staff and his attention and intended efforts to contribute to countries most in need of innovation and improved economies, I believe Jonathan Lu represents a person whom is characteristic of the World Community, as I have defined and have been promoting.
That is a world that works for all.
On the personal or individual side, Mr. Lu also is someone who has the one characteristic many of us lack in being successful in our lives. I will leave you to identify that characteristic and a couple others that has made him successful to identify in the opening scenes of this video. CLICK HERE or the image below.
I want you to breakthrough as a citizen of the world, as did Mr. Jonathan Lu with his company Alibaba and obtain those characteristics if you do not already have them or completely fulfilled or achieved them.
