Sharing: My Investment Journey (Part 1)
Updated: Feb 18, 2020
All of us have our personal exciting success stories to share.
I’ll like to share with you some of my most memorable life experiences in my years of property investment and business career.
I hope this sharing will inspire you in many ways, to think life is not always about achieving the successes we want, but more importantly, what lessons we can learn to be a better person in society.
Some of my successes and embarrassing failures
My past 20 over years in the harsh trenches of the corporate world was met with extremely tough challenges, dealing with all kinds of people politics and power-seizing frenzy in business.
Numerous partnership and political problems in businesses.
Countless ‘nerve-racking’ sales presentations with high-level company CEOs. One of the most memorable experiences was how I managed to do a sales presentation and turn it into a success deal with the CEO of Hyflux Limited, a humble lady named Ms Olivia Lum many years ago.
My first public speaking sales presentation to a 100-crowd of high-level company executives back in 2001 Vietnam, was an embarrassing failure but a great learning experience.
Tons and tons of rejections in the face from retail, corporate, to countless door-to-door sales from age of 15 years old.
How I used to be fit, grew fat in the later years because of work (I weighed as heavy as 75 kg for a 1.68m tall guy), and become fit again today… (I’m at 60kg with a lean 4-pack)
