The right moment for a hamster
At certain points in your life, you might be stuck in a daily grind in your professional and/or private life. Everything has turned into a routine. You look at your hamster running around on his exercise wheel and you think, “Buddy, it’s the same for me.” That’s the situation I was in at the end of 2010. I had the feeling I had to change something basic in my life! Imagine standing at the edge of a cliff and knowing that you have to jump into the cold water, you’re going to jump, and above all, you want to jump. The only thing that’s stopping you at that point is the need to wait for the right moment!
One day as I was browsing through a list of job openings, I noticed something unusual: BBAC. Who or what is BBAC? Back then, my Nokia 6210 cell phone couldn’t “Google,” but my computer could. BBAC stands for Beijing Benz Automotive Company. It’s a joint venture between Daimler and BAIC, which stands for Beijing Automotive Industry Company.
