Finding Your True Calling - w/ Jason Wang
BomBom not only sounds cute, but it also stands for Bones Offal Meat - Asia’s largest company that provides scientifically balanced fresh diet for your canine and feline pet. At its helm sits Jason Wang, the founder, also more fondly known as the Dogfather amongst the furry friends that he and his team care for. An accomplished founder and CEO in the finance world prior, he also has decades of research experience in agricultural and livestock farming, as well as companion animal nutrition. Jason is definitely a capable individual by most standards. But what I find myself most drawn to is his genuine love for animals and his relationship with Kyubi (his Shiba Inu) being the driving force behind his vision to leave a legacy for pets.
