    Although Tse has proven himself both in all aspects of show business, from being onscreen to working behind the scenes, he insists he is no different from the average entrepreneur.

    Despite being successful in the post production business, Tse said that his core business remains show business, and that his growing company exists to help him learn more about it.

    When he started the business at 23 years old, Tse had to take a big risk by leasing his home to the bank.

    While he took a gamble with the business, Tse says he did not do so blindly. He had utilised his connections well and ensured three projects even before the company was started up.

The son of Hong Kong veteran actor Patrick Tse revealed in an interview with a Hong Kong business school that his secret to success was good leadership and respect for his staff.

"We want to be cared (for), we want to be loved and to be respected. That is why in my company, we have the least hierarchy problems," he said in a video interview which was posted on YouTube.

"I really don't know what my best leadership qualities are, or my worst," he admitted in the interview.

"Am I a good human being? You can say all that but it would mean nothing. It should be said by my staff," he added.

He said in the interview that he would cook for his staff, and even encourages the team to do sports and other activities together.
