215 Big

Kevin Maney, columnist, advisor and best selling author of the book “Play Bigger” comes on the show to talk about the difference between succeeding as a new company and simply “joining the fray” in the business world. While in Chinese, the title “Play Bigger” almost sounds like something said at the casino, in this case, Kevin is talking about the concept of business category design. ShaoLan teaches him the word for “big” in Chinese, as well as lots of other size words.

The Chinese word for “big” is 大! It looks a bit like a person standing with their arms outstretched!
