My name is Ricky Chai, and I am a young entrepreneur that is looking to make a difference in the world. I believe every individual has the potential to succeed if they are ambitious, show willingness to work hard, receptive to advice and not afraid of failure. Every idea may not be a great one but all it takes is one to make it all worth it.
In my spare time, I like visiting new places and trying out new cuisines. The world is so diverse and a great way to experience this diversity is through food. I truly feel a sense of newness every time I allow myself to be surprised. I aspire to better my life and the lives of those around me because that will be a true measure of my success in this life.
“First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.”
The reason I joined Signs of Community is because as a small business owner I felt the struggles to stand out and get my business the exposure it deserved. In an era where the common advertising media of TV, Radio, and Print have all become less effective, I knew there had to be a better way. When I heard about Signs of Community and their approach to inform local communities about School and City events through a network of Community Announcement Centers, I felt that the idea would work well. Then when I learned that SOC also allows local businesses to sponsor a location at a reasonable price and garner their own exposure as a supporter of the community, I felt this was an amazing idea. I am behind Signs of Community 100% and look forward to contributing in every way I can.
