    Richard Liu Qiangdong is on the Forbes’ list of wealthiest people in China and has the approximate net worth of more than $7 billion. As a self-made billionaire in the e-commerce sector, many business analysts and experts compare him with Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, who is also a self-made billionaire and a pioneer in the e-commerce business. In an interview recently, he said that the primary reason why he was so dedicated and passionate about achieving financial freedom in his younger years is because of his poor background. Richard Liu Qiangdong added that at the time when his mother-in-law was ill and suffering, the family didn’t have enough money to provide her proper treatment or buy medicine. It encouraged and motivated him to take on his responsibility and earn money to provide for his family.

    Richard Liu Qiangdong also provided detail on how the company went from physical retail operations into completely an online run retail operation. He said that when China suffered from SARS epidemic, it became difficult to manage the running overhead expenses, which continued to pile up while revenues were falling massively. The customers weren’t able to come to the stores, and neither did the employees, even when many perks like free food and transportation was offered. It is during this time that his manager suggested Richard Liu that it is a good time to enter the e-commerce market and sell products online. It is how the success story of JD.com started, which was formerly known as 360buy.com.

    The online retail business started in the year 2004 and the success it achieved within just a year made Richard Liu close down all the stores by the end of 2005. He wanted to put all his effort into his online business, and today, it is one of the most successful e-commerce companies in the world. But, all the success he has got has not stopped him from thinking even bigger. He wants to leave his competition behind and expand to any more countries than he already has. Richard Liu is working hard to make it a reality in a few years.

    Based in Portland Oregon, Nitin Khanna helps arrange acquisitions and mergers of companies as the Chief Executive Officer of Mergertech. Before founding Mergertech, he had founded one of the biggest companies in the United States that provided solutions for state governments, Saber Corp. The growth that this company experienced before Nitin Khanna made the decision to sell was recognized multiple times in 2006 and 2007. This high level of growth was able to attract the attention of investors which eventually allowed him to sell the company for significantly more than it had previously been valued at. At 17 years old, he moved to the United States. He earned his education in Portland at Purdue University where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s in Engineering.

    Nitin Khanna has embraced the entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, philanthropy, and creativity throughout his career which is what has helped him make it in the world of business. During his childhood in India, he spent a lot of time in boarding schools. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and had their values instilled in him from a young age. He has always had an interest in technology and was even working on a Ph.D. in robotics before making the decision to stop his education and start his career. When his brother moved to the United States in 1999, they made the decision to start their own business together which led to the founding of Saber Corp.

    When working with a company, Nitin Khanna works to help them build a strong strategy for their business that allows for growth. He insists that one of the most important things that you can do for a company is to make sure that you have the right people on your team. He is still working with his brother today at Mergertech and the 2 have managed to form a great team. While Nitin Khanna focuses on making sales at the company, his brother is much more operational minded and able to handle those parts of the company. While Nitin Khanna has managed to get better at this part of business, he still enjoys focusing on people and growth.
