About the Book

"So, what made me start this daunting journey? Why would anyone want to hear my story? Where and how do I begin? Would I have the courage to confront and reveal my secrets and fears? Would I have the time and discipline to finish a book?

After three years of runs and stops, I'm thrilled that I've finally finished writing my memoir. In 12 chapters and about 90,000 words, I did my best to tell the tale of my life journey: from growing up in the slums of Hong Kong’s notorious Walled City to venturing to the hallowed halls of Harvard and the buzz of Wall Street and then embarking on a lifelong dedication to the headhunting profession.

The more you know yourself, the more authentic the journey of self-discovery will be.”

- Louisa Wong

"An extraordinary journey by an extraordinary woman….Louisa gives 1000% to living life. Truly enjoyed reading the book. Louisa is a beautiful butterfly herself.”

-Ellen Lee Chon, COO/CFO, Phoenix Property Investors

Green Pastel Butterflies

"Butterflies arrive unexpectedly and leave quickly, leaving only an impression. Opportunities are the butterflies of Louisa’s story. Rather than let her opportunities fly away, she grasped them and through hard work, dedication, and inspiration, Louisa built a leading multinational business and achieved success. Not all went well, difficulties had to be overcome, and at one point she overestimated her personal ability. But she focused on her client’s success and that of her team.

This book is a very frank description of a life lived to the full that should inspire young people hesitant about their ability to strike out to make a difference. It is also a story of so many Hong Kong people of Louisa’s generation whose careers had unlikely beginnings but achieved much, and by so doing, built one of the great cities of China.”

-Vernon Moore, experienced executive and non-executive director and chairman
