Undeniably, there is so much thrill on a train ride at full speed. I want to pounce on an idea, and run along with it so fast to get to my dream destination in the nick of time. We all want to achieve success faster, and we think time is slowing us down. We make decisions fast, we tap into every opportunity our eyes can see and we run along where our guts lead us to. We thought we are destined to win, but actually doomed to fail. Clarity and Direction Do you know where this train will possibly take you to? Just…

Don’t take my words literally, and jumped right out of your seat wondering why in the world would a supposedly loving mother of 3 children, would start advising me to stop caring for others. Completely the opposite. I want you to be selective of whom you’ve decided to care for. It’s important that the act of caring should (as far as possible) be something that can benefit you in more ways than one – and I am not referring to monetary benefits. Caring is a beautiful act, but one that takes quite the investment of time and more importantly -…

Success does not come overnight, but from a long tedious process of striving to improve everyday. Whenever you admire someone for being successful despite knowing them for a short period of time, be well informed that their hard work have started years in advance of that glory. The time investment to achieve success is not about the many times an individual loses or fails, but more so of the same amount of time – he or she rises up, dust off the sand and try again. Time is what truly measures success. Time is the only measurement of the many…

Business is not supposed to be this difficult. Even if you are caught up in issues and problems, finding solutions is part of the job – and since you’ve already love the business enough to start it, chances are, you are most willing to look for solutions. I am always happy to stay up late, work longer hours when needed or attend to problems even at 3 am in the morning. I’m generous with giving time or money to the business, or to myself so I can invest to learn more just so I can improve in it. It’s people…

Just because someone does not quit, does not mean they have never thought of quitting. It its, after all, seemed like the easiest option. Everyone wants to do amazing things, but when the going gets tough – people give up and easily succumb to the life before that. Which is why 95% of the people, who chase for their dreams never got around to achieving them. Success never comes easy. The road to achieve success and amazing accomplishments is never smooth. If I could try to explain it best, it’s a road full of challenges, hurdles and obstacles – almost…

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…

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….
