“There’s just something different about the way entrepreneurs approach life.” --Vincent HoSang Even as a kid growing up in Jamaica, Vincent HoSang felt the world beckoning. The son of immigrants who had left their village in South China for a better life, he witnessed his parents’ struggle to eke out a living to support their large family from a grocery shop in a remote and impoverished rural area. By fifteen, he faced the death of two siblings, separation from his family, and life as a high-school dropout. At twenty-seven, he arrived in New York with an unshakeable determination to make his fortune, and started his new life as a minimum wage factory worker. Today, the boy who often went shoeless has his own factory, and is one of the world’s largest producers of Jamaican patties. Part memoir and part “how to” book, Change of Fortune will resonate with readers who love a classic bootstraps immigrant tale, and show would-be entrepreneurs how to build their dreams with true grace and grit.
