Founder & Host
Global From Asia
Mike Michelini, founder and host of the Global From Asia podcast and senior consultant for internet marketing, is an expert in cross border e-commerce. He specializes in SEO (search engine optimization), brand marketing and planning, creative content creation and internet and social media marketing. He graduated from the Stevens Institute of Technology in the United States with a bachelor’s degree in engineering management and a master’s degree in technology management.
He has over 18 years of experience in cross border e-commerce being one in the first group of big sellers in the industry. He began his e-commerce business in the year 2003 selling bar supplies on eBay while working at Deutsche Bank of Germany in Wall Street in the United States. To address the problem of supply, he came to China in the year 2007 and founded Shadstone Import and Export company (shadstone.com) and has led many Chinese to learn and become Amazon and eBay sellers. To this day, some big sellers in China have remained his partners and friends.
He has committed himself to connecting cross border e-commerce and global trade business, establishing channels and bridging between China and foreign countries – helping foreign enterprises do business in China and helping Chinese enterprises expand their businesses overseas.
As a generalist, he further scaled his knowledge not only in cross border e-commerce but also in independent station operation and SEO (search engine optimization). Adding to his many roles as a creator, he has authored several books, articles, blogs, video blogs – all that placed him among the new media experts.
Many people call him the cross border business connector for having solid contacts and influence within the cross border e-commerce industry in Europe and America. This is strengthened by his almost two decades of cross border e-commerce experience and his status as a well-known anchor and host.
In the year 2013, he founded globalfromasia.com or GFA, a community of global cross border e-commerce business owners and students engaged in cross border business. This community provides a platform for mutual learning, social communication and transnational cooperation to help their global businesses. In order to better serve seller members, GFA also launched the GFA podcast in the same year. In the show, we interview business owners or business experts doing transnational and global business, every week. What is being shared in the show are their business experiences and entrepreneurial stories from different angles and levels.
In 2016, for taking the community further, he began to organize and hold the Cross Border Summit (crossbordersummit.com), an international cross border e-commerce summit and Cross Border Matchmaker (crossbordermatchmaker.com), an international cross border e-commerce supply and demand matching. These big events are complemented by various private consultations, business delegations, training courses and other activities. The participants are big sellers and service providers from all over the world, which not only provides global sellers with an opportunity to learn from each other, but also promotes Sino-foreign transnational cooperation.
