Lin Hou

Business Founder
My name is Lin and I’m a mom. I thought I was pretty when I was little. I thought I was going to change the world when I was a teenager. I was in a lot of competitions to prove myself in college. I was sure that I was going to become a CEO in the big corporate world in my twenties. In my thirties, I found grey hair and wrinkles, I am less ambitious and I’m a CEO of a small business. Things don’t go with plans, but I think it’s the beauty of life.
