Jack Ma created literally one of the best websites out there! I use Alibaba all the time for my business! Great video! Keep it up!
Great to see the success of Jack Ma
I was listening this on my headset, I thought the right piece was busted..good thing I read the comments. Nevertheless, this is  still great. Thanks Tom!
Are you aware this video works only on 1 of my head sets ?
Awesome study case, Thank you Tom
Wait until UBER issues an IPO it'll blow alibaba away
The Best channel... no doubt..... Thanks TOM for this great video.
So wait with eBay out of the picture who is Alibaba's competitor now as far ase-commerce is concerned
Unreal... what a beast. thanks for the video!!!
Notification Squad ! ! ! Edit : Guys, i am hearing audio only in my left earphone, tho 5:42 sound effects can be heard on both
Nvidia please :D
Additional info: Jack Ma and Malaysiajust launched world's first Digital Free Trade Zone.
Thanks for the video. "Solve one problem and do it damn well. Even if its selling biscuits!"
No sound coming bro
Still going- Jack Ma impresses me so much. He got rejected from Harvard 10 times, got turned down on 30 jobs, was the only person of the 24 to not get a job a KFC and still reached not just success, but massive sucess. Not only that but this man have great sucess, he also had great character. He believed in himself when no one else did, never let failure stop him, understood patience, and wanted to be respected, not liked.
Can you upload the music that plays at the end ofevery video. I really want to make that my ringtone. BTW amazing as always the biz doc and of course valuetainment.
Love the case studies.Keep them coming.
These guys need to be on shark tank lol
No sound !

Hey guys!! Please do Snapchat( or Snap Inc. )....there's a lot to learn from their decision of declining Facebook's offer in 2013.
Pls do a case study on LEeco by #notificationSQUAD
Hey Tom! Thats really a wonderful case study. I always love your interpretations, all are fresh stuff - no common things. I have even added you as our mentor in our portfolio! Thanks for everything Tom. I would love to hear more how company like Amazon and Ali Baba manage their staffs. Do they do micromanagement or macromanagement? How do they keep the efficiency of human, especially in a big scale? How does company like Virgin, Ali Baba and Air Asia still keep the worker happy while make them work? How does the relationship between the top executives and the staffs are just like friends - even it is a big company. How do they make sure they are still to be respected when they are acting like friends? And last but not least, how to make sure both parties (Top Executives and normal staffs) doesnt cross the lines?
Watching Jack Ma be so persistent through transgressions with Alibaba was absolutely amazing.From sitting in a room with about 10 people, to having a company with about 100 people, to more than 10k (I'm sure my number is undershooting incredibly) just astonishing.He had to beat out eBay in China, too.
Lmao awesome video. The random sound around 5:44 almost scared the life out of me. Love the video
Tom you are funny
I see Tom, I click! (No disrespect Pat, I love you too.)
Would love to hear history of Zara clothing company and Wal Mart
