I majored in the hospitality business at the Singapore Institute of Technology, but the career progression that comes with a financial consulting career, as well as the scalability of the business, made me decide to explore the financial advisory industry.
Strive to improve the lives of the people around you.
One of my many career goals is to provide a higher standard of living not just for my family, but for my friends as well. Just as you’re able to succeed in this business, you’ll also derive a lot of satisfaction from witnessing your loved ones succeeding alongside you.
Trust the process.
After experiencing the industry for 2 years, it’s not an easy journey at all. But new financial consultants should keep working hard and trust the process. Remember your true purpose and always give before you receive!
I believe all financial consultants need to be coachable, and willing to learn in this business. It’s a long-term journey that requires you to constantly upskill, and there are also plenty of valuable lessons to be learnt from your mentors as well as your clients from all walks of life. Come in with an open mind!
