Anne Li, China
Anne Li found a business that added meaning to her life. Now she’s inspired to lead other millennials to a more purposeful life.
When the COVID crisis came to China, it had a huge impact on Anne. She moved home in 2020 and the life she knew lost meaning to her. To keep herself busy, she began selling the beauty products that she loved as a teenager. And the more she learned about the products, the more she shared her enthusiasm online through videos.
“It was easy because I was a walking testimony for these products. I met customers online and sold products through video chats. Strangers began to contact me online for more information and I realized people that I didn’t even know wanted my help and relied on me,” she says. For the first time, she began to feel a purpose and a responsibility to others.
“I never used to care about strangers. I didn’t trust them and didn’t pay any attention to them. Something within me shifted, and I realized that I needed a change from within,” she says.
