首富周群飞的励志人生


Zhou, 47, is the youngest self-made female billionaire on Forbes’ list and her humble beginnings make her trajectory that much more impressive. She grew up in a small village in central China.

47岁的周群飞是福布斯杂志榜单上最年轻的白手起家的女富豪,她卑微的出身让她的人生轨迹更非比寻常。她在中国中部的一个小山村里长大。

Her mother died when she was five and her father became partially blinded and lost a finger in an industrial accident, according to The New York Times. As a child, she began raising pigs and ducks to bring in additional food and money for the family.

据纽约时报报道,她五岁丧母,父亲部分失明并且在一次工业事故中失去一根手指。年幼时,她就开始养猪,养鸭以负担家庭开支。

At age 16, the future entrepreneur was forced to leave high school to provide for her family. She soon scored a job at a factory making watch lenses for about US$1 a day.

16岁时,这位未来的企业家为了为家庭减负从高中辍学。她辍学后在做手表盘的工厂里工作,每天一美元的报酬。

At age 22, she struck out on her own. With only US$3,000 in her pocket, Zhou and a few relatives started a workshop, making watch lenses for customers.

22岁时,她出去拼搏。揣着仅有的3000美元,周群飞和她的几个亲戚开了一家工厂,主营表盘。

She lived and worked in a small apartment with her siblings, their partners and two cousins. Though the company was steadily growing, it wasn’t until she made the career-changing decision to begin making glass screens for mobile phones that her business took off.

她与兄弟姐妹,父母和表兄弟在一间小公寓生活和工作。尽管工厂生意稳步上升,但直到她改变主意做手机玻璃屏时她的生意才风生水起。

Motorola was the first to reach out in 2003, followed by other mobile-phone companies. HTC, Nokia, Samsung and finally Apple in 2007 were all requesting touch screens, culminating in her current billion-dollar empire.

摩托罗拉是她于2003年接到的第一笔订单,之后就有其他手机公司接踵而至了。HTC,诺基亚,三星以及2007年合作的苹果都向她的公司订货,成就了她如今亿万富豪的身价。

In her interview with the Times, Zhou reflects on how far she’s come. In the area she grew up in, girls like her didn’t have the luxury of going to middle school, she says. Their only option was to get engaged or married and spend their whole life in the village. Zhou refused to take that route."I chose to be in business," she says, "and I don’t regret it."

在泰晤士报的采访中,周群飞追忆过去。在她生长的地方,像她这样的女孩连去上中学都是奢求,她说道。她们唯一的选择就是长大结婚,在山村里度过自己的一生。周群飞突破束缚。“我选择了从商,“ 她说,“我没有后悔。“
