The great Zig Ziglar, the true OG guru of management once said that research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company. RECOGNITION.

With the global epidemic of Covid-19 and the ensuing movement control order (mco) here in Malaysia, many SME businesses are facing unprecedented issues not only in their organisation, but in almost all aspect of life. I have been having multiple discussions with various SME owners and everyone is facing difficulties. We are all in this together.
Nobody can tell you what to do or even give you proven advice, and let us be honest, anyone who does claim they are experts and give you advice, they’d have to have lived through the Spanish Flu of 1918. These are unprecedented times and we are facing a global epidemic, everything but the kitchen sink has to be thrown in to it. Based on my experience and multiple discussions, here are 3 small things that i believe SME/small business owners can do and adopt during these troubling times to hopefully help surf through this storm.

The recent Corvid19 virus outbreak hit the global economy with no concrete end in sight, it is going to take a while before the economy picks itself back up again. Here in Malaysia, the weekend’s exciting political drama has yet chucked another spanner into the works sending the stock market and ringgit plunging. What am i to do during these trying times?

It only seems like last month when i penned down thoughts and learnings on my turbulent 2018. In a blink of an eye, here i am sharing my lessons on 2019. Time and tide waits for no man. Time is the most valuable resource in the world, how are you spending it? Continue reading “For Auld Lang Syne”→
2018 was to me one of those years i wish would go by in a hurry. While as an entrepreneur my life has been dotted with many ups and downs, i have to say 2018 taught me many painful lessons. Painful in the literal sense too!
2018 also showed me very clearly that for every dark cloud there is a silver lining, and there cannot be light without darkness, and you cannot enjoy the rainbow without some rain. So i must say that some of these lessons in 2018 helped spark radical changes in my life that have yielded great positive outcomes. As Rumi once said, ‘the wound is the place where the light enters you’.
In this post we take a look at the top 13 lessons i learnt this year. I am penning this down in hopes that you benefit from me and don’t have to learn them the hard way like I did.

It’s that time of the year again, parties, dinners, holidays and celebrations. For many, its where we take the time to look back at the year and reflect on what we did right, try really hard to remember what we didn’t do, bask in the memories of what we did, and then set new resolutions and goals for the coming new year. How was your 2017? Here is my year in a nutshell and some of the key lessons i learnt throughout the year.
Have you ever considered a career in the tiling industry? What? Tiles?
I hear a resounding NO, and like most other graduates and younger generation hitting the employment market, the construction business (unless your dad handed the business to you!) including the tiling industry is not even on your ‘to consider’ list of choice employment. In fact, you probably never even thought there was such an industry… until you renovate your house that is, even then you’d probably leave it to the contractors.
