The Jacqueline Shan Story is the wonderful, improbable story of one woman's extraordinary entrepreneurial career in natural health. A child of the Cultural Revolution, Shan moved to Canada in 1987 and set out to prove that natural medicine could meet mainstream scientific standards. The result-after 10 long years of constant challenges and frequent setbacks-was COLD-FX. The natural health product was endorsed by the Edmonton Oilers, legendary hockey all-star Mark Messier, and television personality Don Cherry, among others.
This book describes the peaks and valleys in the life of a woman entrepreneur with a big national profile. Shan raised millions of dollars to develop and market a new cold remedy that would ultimately outsell the biggest brand-name products in the market to become Canada's #1 cold and flu remedy. Like many entrepreneurs, Shan enjoyed great success but she also made mistakes, big public ones. Undaunted, she began again, developing Afinity, an entirely new line of natural health products for an actively aging population, and mentoring a younger generation of entrepreneurs.
Candid, engaging, and frequently surprising, The Jacqueline Shan Story is both an inspirational memoir and an indispensable resource for anyone who wants to make a business dream come true.
