I have been on both ends of this spectrum – the investor and the entrepreneur seeking investments. Hence, I understand how that pitching game works, how to excel and how to win investments. It’s not a straight forward process but instead consists of multiple stages, trying to keep the interest of the investor lingering around until it builds momentum to close. It takes longer than usual, if you are not delivering your best at every stage but if you do, it’s not hard to seek funding. Understanding Investors Bear in mind, the behaviour of an investor – they have seen…

Not everyone has the desire nor the aspirations to become a leader. Likewise, not everyone can be groomed to become a leader. The responsibility of a leader is far more onerous than you would have imagined it to be. I, for one, would never have thought, coming from a humble beginning, would I be spending my days leading hundreds if not thousands of people on a daily basis. The real question is, how much work and effort is there when it comes to leading? Certain attributes make a leader. Resilience is one of the main qualities that distinguishes a good…

Most people do not understand what is personal branding. They assumed it’s about raising engagement, extending their reach and to share knowledge of value to some one else. Subtly, we have to admit – plus it’s proven with science – that we often check back our last posting, and feel immensely excited at the rising likes and attention we get in return. In other words, fame starts building up at the same time and soon enough, more people than before now know our name. We get addicted to this feeling, not action, and start losing the sense of awkwardness of…

The popular quote “When you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” never really entirely win me over. Don’t get me wrong, my positive mind keep reiterating to me that there must be some ring of truth around that quote – I just probably didn’t understand that at that time. Yet I went on believing, in order for great things to happen in our life, we just have to plan it right. But I remembered at 17, I cried when I did not get into the junior college I wanted. I made it to enter Tampines Junior College for the…

People underestimate the significance of the founding CEO of a company. Even the entrepreneur themselves. Good leadership is one of the most important essence in leading the company right, starting from the initial structure all the way through its scalability and growth over seasons. And no matter how many articles I read about leadership, from varying concepts, applications and diversified successful founders – it leaves me clueless once again how those stories can lead my actual people. So I’ve decided to study the psychology of human beings instead, in understanding the basic fundamentals of human interaction. What kind of aura…

It’s not about taking risks, or who is more fearless than the other. This is not about a competition or a race at all. But the actual problem to why some of us are not where we dreamt of being is because we did not even allow ourself to take chances; to try. The first decision I made was to be married at 20, to this guy I knew for eight months. He was living in Australia and I was in Singapore. It’s not about the age, at that time, I was not sure if I could keep up with…

We’ve completed the coding of BebeBargains, a baby goods marketplace built by mothers for mothers. There has not been a marketplace targeting the niche market of used and brand new baby products, implemented on a global scale and BebeBargains aim to be the first – both on web-app & mobile app version. Truth be told, I actually had this idea some 6 years ago when I thought I was done with birth after having my second live child. I was accumulating too many baby products from carriers, outgrown newborn clothes, toys, books, strollers and diapers even! There were so many…

I have been invested in, and have invested in other businesses. So I shall share with you my perspective as an investor and as a start up who sought investments when it comes to winning capital funding. It’s great to know you got great ideas going, and sort of know how to plan to execute it. You look like you are committed and determined to face what’s coming, and hungry to win in this entrepreneurship business. After all those months of brainstorming and planning, maybe with or without a prototype – you feel you are ready to be invested in….
