Judyth Piazza chats with Diana Lu, Author of Daughter of the Yellow River

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

In her new book, Daughter of the Yellow River, Diana Lu recalls her rise from an impoverished girl growing up in Communist China during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, to becoming a strong pioneer in the fiber optics industry. As the youngest female executive in the field in China, she went on to become a multi-millionaire entrepreneur in America. Her memoir also offers dozens of principles on how one can live a vibrant and fulfilling life and forge ahead with a successful career. She shares guidance on how to cross cultures and do business in and with China, and she presents her small company`s unique and valuable experience of standing firm in protracted litigation against a corporate Goliath -- a major Chinese joint venture.

Diana came to this country less than a decade ago, having changed careers and countries. She was trained as a doctor, but switched to being a teacher in a university, and then eventually became a businesswoman. She learned English by watching TV in China. She came to America relying only on her husband. Her marriage began to crumble two months after her arrival. Working totally on her own she started her international business venture from scratch. In 1993 she earned the equivalent of $30 a month in China. By the end of the decade, with no formal business training, she was on her way to making millions of dollars in the technology industry and other investment opportunities, working with some of the world`s top companies. By age 34, she retired from her telecom business venture as one of the leading female entrepreneurs in her field, and continued to explore new opportunities and to engage in new ventures.
