Taking the first step

This marks my first post in my blog. Hope this time the blog stays permanent forever. I’ll post a few posts together in succession to talk a little about how it all started.

In 28 July 2014, I was shown a business opportunity that I had never imagine that could change my life. The vision was simple; travelling and making money at the same time. Who wouldn’t want that? I grabbed the opportunity on the spot, even though I’m working as a financial consultant at that time and had no time for other matters, let alone a business. You understand if you’ve ever done your share of backpacking through Europe back in the day – it is not difficult to get by without too much money, but you need some. So when we got stuck in a pal in the drunk tank, and Sweden with no cash, klicka här actually came in handy there to get some cash to bail him out to call our parents to send money to us.

I went home all excited and started to call all my friends to tell them about the opportunity. I’ve set appointments for the next few days to show this wonderful platform to my friends. There was an event in YMCA the next day and I tried my best to bring friends down, especially when celebrity Darren Lim was supposed to be there as well.

Really regretted not taking photos with Darren Lim as he doesn’t appear often. Anyway, I shall grab that chance when I see him next time.

Over the next 2 days, I had 4 friends that supported me in my venture. But being the Melvan Yong of the past, I stopped there and done nothing to contribute towards my success in the business. Over time, slowly but surely, my team members left me. A big reason why that happened is because I failed as a leader. No training was done, no motivation was done, nothing was done.
