What’s Next for Li? Invest In A Bright Future!
After 5 months of competing in the global TV host contest, I want to tell you that I was not the Paradise Hunter. Since the announcement, I have received an overwhelming amount of supporting messages, emails and comments from friends, my fellow finalists and contestants that I was beyond touched!! You have warmed my heart and I feel I already won despite the result! AND I have a even more exciting future ahead because of this process so I want to share with you & would love for you to participate!
This journey has not only given me enormous publicity in America, China, India and other countries, but also incredible learning in marketing, social media and many exciting opportunities: More than 7 corporations including Paradise Hunter and a billion dollar corporation, have approached me with business, media and P.R. collaboration proposals. Many are related to the Chinese market.
So my journey has just started and I’d say, it will be even more exciting than winning the contest! Here are what’s next for me and how you can be part of it:
1 I will start my own Li Jing media venture, an “international Chinese Oprah” blog/news site on my reports on culture, fashion, business, celebrities and inspirational stories. It will be bi lingual in Chinese targeting the Chinese market in America, China and around the world and of course, anyone who wants to be successful =) With my unique connections with top American and Chinese media that no one else has, it will reach a market that everyone is trying to reach!
2 Besides the “International Oprah” website, we will also provide media, social media, education and P.R. service for companies, especially those interested in the Chinese market.
3 My ultimate goal is to be the FIRST NON NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKER to host my own fun, inspirational and international show on top American and Chinese networks such as Oprah, E!, China’s Dragon TV, CCTV, and Phoenix TV. It will be in English and Chinese reaching billions of audience around the world.
So I would love to have your support on the following:
1 I want to raise $1-2 million, which is aimed at developing to a multi million/billion dollar company. If you know anyone or you want to invest, contact me. We will reward a finder’s fee. We already have businesses to start in a few weeks and expect a great return!
2 We welcome volunteers/interns in WEB DESIGN, media, marketing, business who want to be part of this exciting journey, with potentials to become a paid position in the future.
3 Contact us for speaking engagements, hosting, media, business and Chinese market opportunities! Our specialties include P.R., media, business, events, bi lingual in English/Chinese and social media.
4 Share my story and the message of hope! Facebook me firstname.lastname@example.org, twitter @lijingusa, Chinese twitter http:/t.sina.com.cn/lijingusa, and youtube/jinglimail. I love reading your comments and emails!

Dare To Dream, Never Give Up & Your Dream Will Become True!
Thank you & With Love,
In less than 2 hours, Paradise Hunter will announce the winner after an almost 6 month long worldwide search. I feel excited, almost relieved, very happy, a bit nervous and most of all, extremely thankful for this incredible journey!
12 months ago, when I left NBC to start on my own, I have never thought I would end up on Life magazine site, the largest news sites in China, meeting with billionaires for business opportunities and having a life changing experience with an incredible group of Paradise Hunters! 10 years ago, when I came from a 10x10 room in China with broken English, no money, no family to a country I didn’t know anyone, no one believed I can one day host a show in English. But today, I became top 10 and the only non native English speaker finalist in a global TV host contest. So DARE TO DREAM & ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU DON’T GIVE UP!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to my friends and everyone-even we haven’t met yet for voting for me, sharing my story and your encouraging messages! Without you, it’s impossible! You inspired me to work harder everyday.
Congratulations to my fellow 9 outstanding finalists who made it to the top out of nearly 700 candidates from 29 countries: Asha, Ben, “Bond Girl Wales”, Carolyn, Dorothy, Jabari, Jade, Joshua, Ryan! I read your stories and you are so inspiring. Keep up the great work & stay in touch!
