Xiaozhao, recently start-ups online are more and more popular. I hear you have also set up your own business, no?
嗨,不提还好,一提就是一把辛酸泪啊,目前市场竞争太激烈,年初成立公司以后,我的作息规律就完全给打破了,头发都愁白了。

Hey, don't bring it up or you'll make me cry. The competition on the market is pretty fierce. After starting a company at the start of the year, now my work life balance is completely messed up and my hair is already going grey.
你们真是年轻有为,不过,别怪我老生常谈,实现自我价值固然重要,也别忽略了身体健康,毕竟身体是革命的本钱呀!

You really are a young up-and-comer, but don't hold against me if I spout some cliches. Self realization really is important, and don't ignore the value of your health, one's body is one's best asset in a revolution!
您说的一点没错,我已经开始反省目前的状态了,与其人到中年便早早进病房,我宁可少赚些银子,好好养生。

You're not wrong there. I've already started to reflect on my current situation. Rather than going into hospital early in middle age, I'd rather earn a little less money and look after my health properly.
