“The husband is a full-time career supporter, and without him, I would not have sat here,” Mrs. Linh said.
After a successful man is the silhouette of a woman, so who is after a successful woman?
That is a very interesting question for business women in Vietnam Forbes Women’s Summit which took place on the morning of 18 October 2018. Answering this question, Mrs. Thai Van Linh – the Director of Strategy & Operations of VinaCapital Investment Fund – said that she had been asked this question many times before. And according to this shark, she thought that after a successful woman is first the husband.
“The husband is a full-time career supporter, and without him, I would not have sat here“, she said. In her point of view, spouses are the most important co-operation in life. Because, in a spousal relationship, the two people are equal, and no one should sacrifice too much for the other, if one is sacrificing, he or she can raise their voice so they can understand each other.
Concerning the question that whether it is necessary for the women to ask the husband in every decision, she said: “Before doing anything, I always talk to my husband. I will share with him anything that needs consideration. I totally agree that a modern woman has her own life
decision, however, it does not mean that she is always independent in all steps, if so, she may miss some of her relationships.”
Concerning Mrs. Thai Van Linh, she is the only female judge of the Shark Tank with a lot of bold sharing in investment. She holds a Master of Business Administration Degree in finance from the US. After graduation, she has held many important positions in many multinational and
multi-disciplinary groups. Currently, she is the CEO of Rita Phil and the Director of Strategy & Operations of VinaCapital Investment Fund – a member of the VinaCapital Group, one of the largest asset management corporations in Vietnam, which has been registered and licensed to

The opportunities must be turned into good luck for us, said Shark Linh to every young people, especially women.
In addition to the perspective of who is behind a successful woman, Ms. Nguyen Bach Diep – the CEO of FPR Retail shared her opinion: “After a successful woman is not only her husband, but a group of people that have sacrificed, not only a single person“, and the group may include children, family, etc.
Ms. Diep was born in 1972, graduated from Ho Chi Minh City Open University in Business Administration.
