Alhambra, California – June 22, 2022 – When the writing staff of an online periodical concentrating on publishing authentic conversations with industry leaders approached Caspar Chou about becoming the subject of a new interview, he agreed readily, eager to share the wisdom he has accumulated over the years. The profile, which touches on Caspar’s early career as a successful entrepreneur, as well as his later experiences as a commercial real estate developer and investor, was published on June 17, 2022.
At the outset of the piece, Caspar is asked to point to some of the reasons for his career success. “Besides the obvious answer of years of hard work mixed with a healthy dose of networking and a dash of good timing and luck, I would have to say that learning the lessons imparted by my family, specifically my father, contributed to my success in a big way,” he replies, elaborating, “To be honest, if it weren’t for all the things my father taught me, my first venture might’ve turned out quite differently.”
Further along in the interview, by means of answering a question about what drives him to succeed, Caspar Chou replies, “I don’t know if I can put it into words exactly. I feel compelled to succeed at whatever it is I’m working on. From as far back as I can remember, I’ve always been like this. I think it’s an inherent character trait that will never leave me. I think it’s built in.”
