My friend Ryan Koh has generously helped to summarize my sharing of personal entrepreneur journey on 27 Oct 2011 at Meet-The-Entrepreneur (MTE) at Chen Fu Ji Restaurant
Collaboration is today’s new competition, there are many things that we do not know in life. Seek answers by Asking and Learning. Through Learning, we gain Experience – Life’s best teacher. Seek a Mentor, not a Coach. The Mentor will guide you in a whole person development while the latter focuses on your performance. Fund your own business and take ownership in the success of it.
Invest in people over products or processes.
The easiest way to market your business is through Personal Branding Mass Media (e.g. TV & radio) is still best for marketing your business and brand creation. (Versus social media)
Always sow the seeds of success, even while you are reaping from the past efforts.
ALWAYS GIVE FIRST, TAKE LATER…. SHARE FIRST, THEN SELL
Entrepreneur = Visionary + Manager + Technician
