Addressing the hidden barriers that keep Asian Americans from leadership, fulfillment, and success.
WHY ASIANS GET OVERLOOKED FOR LEADERSHIP
Studies have shown that Asian Americans are amongst the most highly educated groups, yet are statistically held back from leadership positions. Despite working hard, they are often overlooked for their efforts and brilliance.
Several myths are continuously perpetrated about Asian Americans in the workplace, from perceptions of the "shyness" to mindset and communication limitations from pressures of assimilation.
Big Asian Energy's mission is about examining the sources of our external and internal limitations and breaking through them, together.

THE BIG ASIAN ENERGY SHOW
"Perfect advice King! THIS could be the fork I needed in my life's road. #AAPIwisdom." - Edgar
"This isn't talked about enough." - Lily Chang
HI, I'M JOHN WANG.
I'm the founder of Big Asian Energy, and my goal is to help North American Asian leaders, entrepreneurs, and high performers to find their inner brilliance and be seen for it in the world.
Over the past year, we've been gathering and interviewing some of the best minds in the Asian American community to find and analyze what made them different: the strategies, the mindsets, and the tools used by the ceiling breakers, the change makers, and the trendsetters.
I also host a podcast where I interview influential Asians who have created their own authentic version of success.
When I'm not speaking, TikTok-ing, or podcasting, I enjoy spending time with my partner and traveling the world.Connect With Me
