While pursuing my real estate studies at the National University of Singapore, I was already working in the industry with the knowledge learnt in school. My career path changed when I was introduced to and attended my organisation’s internship programme back in December 2016.
Be there for your clients, always.
One of the beauties of this industry is that it provided me with the opportunity to reconnect with many of my friends and establish stronger ties with them. I’m also able to be present with them through the highs and lows of their adulting journey, which I appreciate. On top of that, the time flexibility and autonomy of being a financial consultant allow me to spend quality time with my parents and fulfil my duties as their son.
Transform your potential into results.
There’s always a constant demand for financial planning with that human touch, and one of the biggest challenges I see for financial consultants to succeed in this industry is to be able to transform their potential and confidence into actual results. I feel that as long as you truly believe in yourself, it’s already half the battle won towards succeeding in this line of work.
Have the right ethics and morals.
Ultimately, this business is based on the faith and trust that our clients have placed in us. As financial consultants, we have to uphold ourselves to the highest standard of ethics and morals to conduct our business professionally.
