How Peng-Sang Cau's vision helped build a company from the ground up.
By Kelly Reid
Peng-Sang Cau, President and CEO of Kingston's Transformix Engineering Inc., shares a favorite analogy about what it means to be an entrepreneur: "A cook will follow a recipe, ingredient by ingredient," she says. "If they don't have all the ingredients, they won't make the dish. A chef, on the other hand, opens up the fridge and says, 'what do I have? What can I make?' An entrepreneur is a chef. We are constantly faced with obstacles, and we are constantly faced with situations that are not ideal. But you have to figure out how to move through that all the time."
