You would be better off mastering negotiation. You can negotiate to find someone to translate, but even if you know Chinese, if you don’t know how to negotiate, you could have some serious problems.
So as good as you may be at what you do in any arena of life, if you haven’t mastered negotiation, you are holding yourself back.
Pick up basketball, engineering, gardening, psychotherapy, surgery, sex………I can’t think of any exceptions.
