coming to the interview part
According to him, there is a timeline that we all face in our lives; it starts from the time we tuurn 20, and lasts all the way till our 60s.
This is what he said:
Before you turn 20 years old, be a good student.
…just to get some experience.
Before you turn 30 years old, follow somebody.
Go to a small company. Normally, in a big company, it is good to learn processing; you are part of a big machine. But when you go to a small company, you learn the passion, you learn the dreams. You learn to do a lot of things at one time.
So before 30 years old, it’s not which company you go to, it’s which boss you follow.A good boss teaches you differently.
Between 30 and 40 years old, you need to think clearly whether you want to work for yourself, if you really want to be an entrepreneur.
When you’re between 40 and 50 years old, you must do all the things that you are good at.
Don’t try to jump into a new area, it’s too late. think about how you can focus on things that you are good at.
when you are 50 to 60 years old, work for the young people.
Because young people can do better than you. So rely on them, invest in them, and make sure they’re good.
When you are over 60 years old, spend time on yourself.
On the beach, sunshine, it’s too late for you to change.
This is my advice to the young people: 25 years old, make enough mistakes. Don’t worry! You fall, you stand up, you fall…enjoy it! You’re 25 years old, enjoy the show!”
so this was the speech given by Jack ma. that’s it 🙂
