Episode Info

Episode Info:

In episode 66, Seibo sits down to speak with Allen Fu, Founder and CEO of Hustle Nation. Allen, born in Australia is the son of immigrants from China. His parents first begin an all too common immigrant journey: immigrating to an unknown country, leaving loved ones behind, and working tirelessly to make a living.

 

Eventually, after making the decision that they did not want to continue working for others, Allen's parents made the hard decision to start their own business and forge their own path in Australia. With hustle in his DNA, Allen utilised the skills and experiences he learned in life and from his parents; this allowed Allen to build his own successful business where he now works with famous athletes and others who want to turn their dreams into reality.

 

Starting off, Allen talks about his struggles that Asians routinely face living in Western countries, however Allen recognised the importance of self improvement at an early age and began to take action to try and improve his situation. Channelling his family name of F.U, he began discovering how taking ownership, developing yourself physically and mentally, and pushing back when necessary helped him gain more respect on both a social and business level.

 

Furthermore, Allen gives practical solutions to learning high value business skills, the most important one being sales. Sales and door to door jobs were what allowed Allen to become accustomed to rejection and build his soft skills, which allowed him to make connections and partnerships to grow his business into what it is now. Nonetheless, when talking about developing EQ, Allen displays his vulnerability where he attributes that being bullied for 10 years provided him the opportunity to develop his empathy and see things from different perspectives. The two then talk about the benefits of Asian Hustle Network (co-founded by fellow HAM guest Bryan Pham and partner in crime Maggie Chui) which the two are both a part of. When reflecting on how this group has helped them find like minded people and business connections, Seibo also comments about the importance of helping others which can have numerous positive effects. In fact, Seibo comments about the times where he had helped others and how these situations actually became a type of long term investment, as the people that he had helped were able to help him grow his own business when they had finally reached their own success.

 

As the podcast comes to a close, Seibo and Allen both offer opportunities to reach out to them to any Asians who are considering starting their own business venture. The two also recommend signing up to Asian Hustle Network to find even more opportunities to help propel your business. For any Asian considering starting their own business, Allen offers his words of encouragement - Try, learn, and reach out. You'll never know if you don't start.
