Recession Heroes Harold Lee

Recession Heroes Episode 3 (2014)

Published: 29 Aug 2014
Recession Heroes is a 6-episode docu-drama series featuring real-life stories of six individuals who had been adversely affected by recessions such as the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, 2001 September 11 Attacks and the 2008 Lehman Brothers Crisis.

These individuals had either been made redundant during the recession or had suffered huge losses to their businesses. However, through sheer perseverance, wit and determination, they have managed to overcome their trials to start life anew.

Recession Heroes is both inspirational and enlightening as it demonstrates how a never-say-die attitude and support from family and the community at large can help individuals overcome financial setbacks in their lives and learn valuable lessons from their mistakes.

Harold Lee started his own courier business, Xdel, 20 years ago with just one van and one employee. Today, the company has a fleet of 10 vans and 35 motorcycles, and nearly 70 workers. But his journey to success was a rocky one, fraught with crises – 1997 Asian financial crisis, September 11 attacks, Dotcom burst in 2003 - that crippled his business many times.
