Thanks for visiting BIG. My name is Sally Wong, the brain behind BIG, founded in 2012 when I embarked on my own venture in China sourcing, fashion and electronic manufacturing. The ideology of BIG is to THINK BIG, GROW BIGGER.
In 2016 I watched Daniel Ally’s TEDx speech How to Become a Millionaire in 3 Years, and I couldn’t have a stronger resonance with his interpretation of BIG.
B: the books you read
I: the individuals that you meet
G: the goals that you set for yourself
When you think big, you will do big, and you will win big.
Before relocating to Guangzhou for almost 20 years, I spent my childhood in a coastal city in Canton, starting my marketing career since little while working at a mom-and-pop shop.
I have travelled solo to over 20 countries with average time of at least 2 weeks each exploring and soaking into local culture, which has enabled me to understand and appreciate all the differences involved in international trade.
I’m a big reader, my favorite books are The Millionaire Fastlane, The Alchemist, Educated: A Memoir.
I’m also a digital marketer, focusing on data-driven SEO. What I am doing now that scares me most is I’m learning to code and try to be a tech founder, thanks to the inspirations from Elpha, a supportive community for women in tech. I’m now working on a project that I hope can be accepted by Y Combinator.
As to my porfolios in my first venture BIG, since 2009, I have helped thousand of readers to start and grow their wholesale business from Guangzhou and China.
I’ve sourced every kind of goods, from smartphone cases to 925 silver jewelry, from faucets to scarves and luxury handmade shoes by Chinese shoemakers trained by Italian shoemakers.
During these years, my business, thanks to customers and inquiries coming from every corner of the globe, has grown exponentially as is grown also my database of reliable suppliers and manufacturers in Guangzhou and all over China.
My company has exported safely tons of goods all over the world and served hundreds of businesses.
