" Vision, problem, solution." – Jim James
Since 1995, Jim has run 3 “suitcase” startups. It started when he flew to Singapore at age 28 to start a business he had never run before. In 2006, he started one of several businesses in Beijing, and in 2020, he returned to the UK to build an international agency without any employees. His team of on-demand professionals operate remotely from all over the world.

In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss how Jim learnt Mandarin Chinese; why he decided to set up shop in Singapore; leaving 20% of your assets at home when you move abroad; and so, SO much more!
