During our interview Jing talks about why she decided to venture into entrepreneurship. In her own words: Going green has always been on my mind.....doing something to make people healthier and happier, creating a system to help people live healthier and happier is the inspiration behind her being an entrepreneur. 

Jing shares with us happening in her company that has her excited, from creating a more efficient air filtration system to pitching for investors for startup funding as she is actively trying to get capital to expand her company recently. By investing her own money she has been able to get a patent and finished the production process of the air filtration system and now is looking for a new way to expand. 

Every entrepreneur has had to overcome some form of obstacle or the other and Jing is no different as she has had to invest her retirement funds to start up the company and keep it going and attend meetings to market her product to prospective clients. Today her company is able to create any number of products of each model upon request. Jing also tells us how we can help make her multi-million dollar project a success.
