Ma said he could hardly hold on in these standards, but Zhong was inspired by the news that “his friend in these standards” Zhong was admitted to Zhejiang Daily in the future. He secretly thought he could do it this time.
So Ma corrected himself and persevered, with the encouragement and blessing of his comrade Zhong, to pass the gaokao.
Although there is a gap of five points between Ma and his bachelor’s degree in these standards, Zhong’s blessing seems to be valid in these standards.
The English major of Hangzhou Normal University happened to be admitted that year, and Ma finally realized his “college dream”.From then on, Jack Ma became “Teacher Ma”, the people’s teacher, and embarked on the road of creating Ali.
Zhong Shanshan has been on a dream job as a reporter for Zhejiang Daily, travelling around the country collecting news.
From Journalist to “King of Health Products”
In 1985, Zhong was so diligent that he was rewarded with a new essay, “Why did Hong Mengxue Leave?”‘s report on the flow of talent, became a “red man” in the Times, ready to enjoy praise.
So Zhong Shanshan worked for the newspaper for five years.
During the five years, he made many friends from the interviews, and even these friends became good partners in his career transition later on.
He interviewed Hong Mengxue, who had joined him in a health product venture after Zhong Shanshan left the newspaper, and is now one of his “leading advisers”, of course.
In 1988, when the trend of reform and opening up was rising, the state also officially approved the establishment of Hainan Special Economic Zone.
Zhong Shanshan, who was then a journalist, read a slew of articles on the Hainan Special Economic Zone in his newspaper several days after that, and thought about it.
So he readily resigned.Ready to dive into the sea while the good time “gold”.
He was keen to capitalise on his strengths by launching the first privately owned newspaper in Hainan under the name The Pacific Post.
Can not wait for him to open dry, the restriction of national policy poured a basin of cold water to him first.
In desperation, Zhong Shanshan had to take another route to agriculture and aquaculture.
But the idea is beautiful, the reality is cruel:
From mushroom farming to prawn farming, Zhong Shanshan wasted all the money he had saved over the years because of his inexperience.
