I usually don’t talk about myself, but today I make an exception.
Let’s talk a bit about me…
Can you imagine what an achiever in school would do in life?
That achiever was me.
I had a First-Class Honours and Accelerated Masters Degree from the best University in Singapore.
Everyone expected me to have a remarkable career.
But I didn’t.
My first and only job only lasted for 18 months, because I quitted.
I was ‘jobless’ for about 2 years, selling things to and borrowing money from people around me.
Then my first business venture ended me in $50k of debt.
My parents, who used to be proud of me, were dead worried.
My wife cried for me.
While my peers were progressing in life, changing cars and houses, I was at square one, or worse.
But thanks to the Internet, I became a millionaire at the age of 33.
The journey wasn’t easy. I had learnt a lot!
I wanted to share my life lessons with like-minded people, but I don’t like public speaking. I tried.
One day, an idea struck me.
Why not I pen down my experiences and thoughts into an email series and share it with our fellow LeadsLeap members?
Since our members are mainly on the quest for wealth and success, my sharing will be very relevant.
Hence ‘My Life Success Lesson‘ email series was born.
This is the #1 episode. I’ve written more than 40 episodes already, and I will continue writing.
There are only 2 ways to learn.
1) Learn from your own experience
2) Learn from other’s experiences.
The most expensive way to learn is to learn from your own experience. (Ask me how I know …)
I hope that through my sharing, you can avoid the mistakes I’ve made, learn from my successes, and achieve your own success faster and easier.
Today’s is an introductory issue.
In the next issue (most likely tomorrow), I’ll share with you how I lost $50k in my first business.
