New Year, New Media! Find me on WeChat/Weibo

The new year also brings another fun new project, as I launch a new blog series on my WeChat public platform, every Sunday and Thursday night China time at 9:00pm. Called TWO MINUTES OF JOY #两分钟的JOY#, each post will start with a 2-3 minute audio file of me reading an essay I’ve written about love, or life, or careers. Following that, we’ll insert my English essay, and its Chinese translation.


Joy Chen is a globally-acclaimed creator of books, movies, videos and other pop-culture media for China. A Chinese-American former Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles, she is author of the smash China best-seller Do Not Marry Before Age 30, which debunks conventional wisdom that single women are “leftover” by their late 20s, and helps them unlock their potential and realize their dreams. Her second book, How to Find the Career of Your Dreams, is due for release in late 2016. Additionally, she has movies in development with Wanda Media and Alibaba Pictures.
