Born and grew up in a famous family, Tan Hiep Phat Group, Phuong Uyen Tran found her great opportunity but many challlenges to face to pursue her dream. She has to take responsibilities to run and develop her family's business, also loves and continues working as a writer. The author of the famous book " Competing with Giants" shares that:" It may sound trite, but you really can become anything you want to – even if it seems impossible. I know this because I’ve watched my father become the successful tycoon he is today from the most unlikely of beginnings. After all, one of our family’s core values is “Maintain A ‘Nothing Is Impossible’ Spirit.”
Tran said the importance of the value stems from her father’s rise from an orphan to a business tycoon. For a man, to become a successful businessman seems be not easy, and to become a tycoon seems feel like a Catch-22. Her father did that when he spent childhood nights facing down two giant hogs which were eyeing him up for their dinner was never going to be fazed by a company like Coca-Cola that offered him a two billion dollar for a majority stake, to which he walked away.

"My father was raised in a harsh orphanage environment where nuns incorporated a variety of severe punishments like, dumping him in a pen wearing just a pair of shorts, a sleeveless T-shirt, and a pair of slippers. The slippers did not last long, as the pigs gobbled them up before he had a chance to climb onto a small platform that pided one pen from the next", said Tran.
Her father’s troubles at the orphanage made him resilient and taught him to overcome obstacles, including how to make the best of a bad situation despite these about circumstances. He was only ten years old when he arrived there in 1963. He soon had to toughen up. Many of the other children had turned into thugs after being tormented by the nuns, and bullying was rife. For a large percentage of those boys were not just orphans but were also the discarded mixed-race offspring of American GIs: abandoned, rootless, and disparaged cultural anomalies.
The man made the best of it and forged his own path to a successful future to become THP's CEO today. Leveraging his experiences, he identified his strengths and found a way to use them to his advantage. Many of the values he learned and applied along his journey are an integral part of THP and its success.
