The Philosophical Approach to Business

I met Sabrina Liu in Chengdu, and she is a wonderful, caring person. She is also a lawyer and business consultant. The reason I’m writing about her is that her business advisory company has a unique approach to business, especially in China. Below is an email that she wrote me that outlines her way of doing business. I think you will see why she is a role model to me.

The Philosophical Approach:

Dear Steve,


We use DocVerify for all of our legal agreements. It’s the most secure eSignature solution out there. Compared to other providers, it’s an average of 50% less. Also, you can sign up for a free account, which will allow you to send 5 e-signature documents per month. Can’t beat that! Just contact Darcy at [email protected] and mention Founders Space.
