Why I Moved to Singapore in 2007

When I moved to Singapore in 2007, I can’t tell you how many smart, educated, knowledgeable, successful people said, “Are you nuts? Why are you moving to China?” Well of course Singapore is not China, it just shows you the extent of the lack of understanding and knowledge. But also they just couldn’t comprehend why anybody would pack up and leave a great life in New York to move to a foreign country. Most people, for whatever reason, they listen to other people, they get into their groove, and they just cannot change. Look, I make plenty of mistakes. You can ask me in fifty years if I did the right thing, bringing my children to Asia. But, when I see something, I eventually act.
