Often known by others as a person with a strong mentality cultivated through my background as a competitive distance runner, I carry a cheerful and positive outlook towards any challenges, powered by my christian faith. I decided to join the financial advisory business in the pursuit of growth, job satisfaction, control over my development and impact positive change.
Passion overcomes rejections.
Prior to joining the business, I was clueless about how to go about managing my finances optimally and often sceptical about any financial consultants who reached out to me. Nonetheless, I am convinced of how important financial planning is for an individual since the day I started work and this conviction continues to grow stronger to become my passion as my exposure to the world of finance and people expands. Though the business is competitive in nature, I have learned to take every rejection in my stride, remain humble and keep working hard to ensure I am always value-adding to the people around me. Even though I am moving beyond my rookie days, there is still so much that I do not know and I am always excited to keep learning.
Driven by Purpose.
The purpose is what keeps me going – despite my parents’ initial stigma towards the insurance industry as a whole. For me, I am well aware of my innate desire for doing purposeful work, seeking to value add and make a positive impact on the lives around me – one at a time.
Educate people the right way.
People these days are getting increasingly digital savvy, especially the younger generation, who’s always looking to learn new things and is very open to investment opportunities. While the industry is still relationship-based, we financial consultants will continue to be challenged by the massive amount of information made available from online platforms, regardless of the sources. We need to stay well-equipped with the right knowledge to correct any misguided perspectives, provide professional advisory and guidance to help bridge potential gaps and address blind spots, and educate the right way of financial planning to the wider public.
