As the accomplished CEO of a tutoring franchise, it’s easy to think Hao Lam has always been the perfect scholar. However, as a kid in Saigon, Hao was more focused on getting out of school to play with his friends and find interesting ways to make money than he was on making straight A’s in the classroom. As he became a teenager, the onset of the Vietnam War stole his happy, carefree youth and compelled him to grow up fast. Hao was forced to make the biggest decision of his life – should he stay in Vietnam and be bound to the Vietnamese army? Or should he take a chance on the unknown, leave his family, risk his life, and try to escape the Communist regime?
Immerse yourself in an inspiring tale of the hardship, perseverance, and personal growth encountered by one man and how he used those experiences to shape his attitude and goals. Join Hao on his remarkable voyage, starting as one of the 800,000 “boat people” that risked their lives escaping a totalitarian regime, to becoming an immigrant in a new nation full of promising opportunities and a world of adventure. Follow along with him through the ups and downs of his life as he shares his secret to happiness and ultimate success.
