Mr. Joseph H. L. Ko (高厚良) currently lives in Sydney, Australia. During his career, he spent over 17 years at Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong covering various positions in marketing, project management and strategic planning. He also worked 3 years in a travel technology company in Tokyo as Head of Marketing. A graduate from the University of Hong Kong, he obtained his MBA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor USA. Arriving in Sydney in 1998, he started his own individual consulting services and received contracts to work for a couple of corporations in Singapore. Influenced by his exposure to entrepreneurship during his MBA studies, he decided in 2004 to turn himself into a small business owner instead. Between 2005 and 2008, he acquired two food service stores in Sydney and managed to achieve significant sales improvements. Being also a part owner of a business brokerage firm, he provides consulting services to help aspiring small business owners with business plans and strategies. Seeing the high failure rate in small business and the resulting damage to people’s lives, he is now taking time to write a small business blog hoping that as many people as possible will resist and stop using a ‘paid job’ mentality to run small businesses.
