People always talk about being consistent but what does that really mean? Just consistent in frequency, type or size of content, or consistent in replies and leads follow ups?

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…

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…

We’ve heard stories of how successful people made a lot of money, in doing something we assumed simple. Being a gamer, or social media influencer, chef, footballer, snowboarder, designer are just some examples, and there are a minority who actually became famous and made huge earnings for years from doing what they love. Due to this, other people who presumed how easy it is to earn like them, aspire to be the same. “Come on, how hard is it to play a game? If this gamer can earns huge money, I can too. ” Knowing how to do, and doing…

Whenever I am asked “Who is my mentor? Or from whom do I get knowledge to learn business from? Or who’ve guided me in running my businesses and grow them?” – people are expecting me to say a name – or two (or quote famous coaches). But to be honest, I do not really have a mentor. Well, let me rephrase that, everyone I know is sort of a mentor to me. Before you start to wonder the kind of mentor I am seeking guidance, and if they have high qualifications or great track records or sell hundreds of workshops…

Personal branding was accidental for me. It was years after I got public that I realised what I’ve done all along is personal brand myself. In the early days when I’ve started my account on Facebook to share my newly married life in Australia, I thought that was what social media is about – sharing (or showing) what you have. I was expecting people to like me, or love me, or made me famous. Facebook Ten years ago, I started an account on Facebook just to share my family blog stories and pictures of my children. I was attracting mainly…

Willpower The resilience to fight through adversity is one of the strongest attributes of becoming successful. The path to success is not easy, as it is full of challenges, hardships and tests that could potentially break you rather than groom you.

Coupled with adversity, is the power of resilience, determination and the willingness to learn. As an individual, you must evolve and learn as your company grows and lead the company in…
