Hi everyone.  How Are You? GREAT i believe. How was your week ?  Mine was GREAT. Alhamdullilah.

I had marathon of talks and seminars satrting from friday morning till sunday.

AbangAbu started the friday as normal and we had our SMCCI AGM and selection of new team for the next 2 years term. AbangAbu have served SMCCI as managment committee the last term and also as V-Chairman for YEN@SMCCI.

AbangAbu  will serve as a Management Committe with SMCCI again for the next to year and my involvement with YEN will be soon known and decide by the new president Mr Rohim. This will give me the opportunity to help more people who looking to start or grow your businesses. The friday was done.

Saturday morning , abangabu were at Yio Chu Kang Grassroot conducting a talks for the Grassroot leaders for Central CDC on Money Kompas. It was well received by all and looking forward to bring my money Kompas to mainstream community as well.

Later , i was at Mujahirin Mosque conducting Bijak Belanja, again was fun fill event and lots of interactions with the participants. The chairman of the Mosque keen on bringing abangabu again for their youth program insya allah. For any MMO’s who keen of conducting PBB please call Mendaki . It will be funded.

Than i was at kembangan , Salem Chesty for anothe session of money kompas talk for smaller group till magrib . This is a self help group that support new muslim brothers and sisters on learning more about ISLAM. http://www.faithub.com.

After ISYAK , AbangAbu was in the forum AKU NAK KAYA together with Ustaz Tarmizi . The moderator was Ustaz Zaki. It was a forum organized by Masjid Al Khair. This mosque seems to be very active. And supprisingly according to the organizor the event was success as many turn out to the forum and also they participated well. AbangAbu felt this is nother way to reach more people by having mix or religious and life skills together. Some thing like entertainement , our communnity also strong presence in religous events.

AbangAbu will have my first private M.A.P untuk KAYA for a family of 8 in Yishun at their home. This is new and exciting as well.

PS: Do look up for the winners of WCC insya allah latest by Monday.

Biz Tip : F A S T

Hye,

AbangAbu want to share an intresting TIP that just out from my mind. While sitting at my table doing an agreement for a client on business coaching. As business coaching is something that i just add to my services , AbangAbu was thinking on how to get FAST growth in the new service that i provide.

In that matter i was thinking no matter what ever that we want to make it FAST in our business is possible. Than i had the secret of getting it fast. Using the acronym FAST.

F- Focus

Focus on what you do is the most critical in achieving our goals. Focus on only one thing and do it great. All fast achievers of their goals agreed that single focus help them to  get it fast. So do you focus on what you do and is that the one thing that you really focus?

A- Attention

Pay Attention to every single matter that related to your goal. It can be a simple feedback, critics or even congratulation notes. Pay attentions on what happen outside world related to what you doing, your industry, technologies, governments initiatives.

S- Strategies

Dont ever stay with just one strategy in doing something. test different ways and look for the best way . Learn from successful businesses and look at the way they do things. look inside an organization that always create success. Do you have stratergies?  Without right stratergy you will have to pay a big price and have to wait.

T- Target

Know your target. Set the target. Plan. Work towards your target, Keep track . Understand what you need , resources and all that it takes to get to your goal.

PS:Have you start it right in getting yourself financially fit? Don’t Wait !!! Make it Right with MAP2BRICH e coaching

Biz Tips:M.A.P

Dear brothers and sisters,

The weekend was great for AbangAbu . As per normal had Bijak Belanja Program on saturday, this time at Al mukminin for elektif 2 . Around 80 people was ther and we had a great time learning and having fun as well.

Than sunday was at sengkang CC for another program Anti- recession Workshop.

Some pictures available pat my facebook.

From this 2 workshop what AbangAbu learnt was to have MAP in whatever we are doing. To become succesful businessman or to build successful business you must have a MAP to achieve it.

Today ABANGABU want to share again about a thing that is called MAP.

just like when u look for a place that you want to go you will have to look at a map. Similar in life you need to look at you own MAP .

M- MINDSET

This is a very important subject to think about. Many people just ignore the fact that this is the one most critical part in achieving your success. How to know what is your own mindset is all about. You will never know until u look deep inside you. It is the sub conscious mind that control whatever that you want. Do you know about it?

A- ACTION-

This is the connector in getting whatever you want in your life. Many have a wrong impression that just with positive mindset you will get anything without putting effort. How stupid will that be to think like that. Just by being positive in life will not make you successful but might bring you into deep trouble.  What will connect you to the dream or goals that you set is the action part. What did you do , how often you do it, how long you do it and how correctly you do things that you should do.       Question yourself all this power questions.

P- PLAN

Well , many people fail to plan and even you are taking the right action or even having right mindset will not help if you dont plan it properly. PLAN is the key in sticking you towards your goal, PLAN makes u aware on the progress that you make and also will help you to understand on what to be done in order to get your goals.

Today , start to review your ownself. Check within you if you have a MAP to succeed in whatever you want. Be it Business or Financce.

Get yourself a MAP by get it a  MAP2BRICH ecoaching.

BELIA & BISNES

PENTINGNYA MEMBINA JENAMA BAGI PERNIAGAAN ANDA Oleh
Abang Abu
PENJENAMAAN atau branding sering dianggap hanya untuk perniagaan besar.

AbangAbu rasa sudah sampai masa bagi peniaga Melayu kita membina jenama untuk mendapat pasaran yang lebih luas.

Sering kali juga, usahawan menganggap penjenamaan memerlukan banyak wang.

Hakikatnya, mendapatkan khidmat pakar penjenamaan memang bukan murah. Namun, Abangabu akan memberikan tip-tip bagi anda mengorak langkah tanpa mengeluarkan kos yang tinggi.

LOGO

Ia amat berguna. Namun anda tidak perlu mendapatkan logo yang eksklusif.

Yang penting, biar apa jua logo pilihan anda, ia harus dimanfaatkan, baik dalam kad nama, surat, invois, risalah atau pintu pejabat dan sebagainya.

LAMAN WEB

Mempunyai laman web profesional amat penting dalam membina jenama anda.

Laman web anda ini akan memaparkan imej perniagaan serta diri anda. Dengan mempunyai laman web yang baik, ia dapat bantu meningkatkan keyakinan bakal pelanggan anda.

Pastikan juga laman anda sentiasa dikemas kini.

BLOG

Satu lagi cara membina jenama adalah dengan memulakan blog sendiri.

Ini boleh dilakukan secara percuma. Dapatkan blog percuma di www.blogger.com.

Untuk contoh, bolehlah anda ke blog www.abangabu.com sendiri.

PROFIL

Siapkan satu profil syarikat anda. Profil ini tidak perlu lebih daripada satu muka surat.

Isikan maklumat yang mudah dibaca mengenai syarikat anda. Ini akan menjadikan perniagaan anda lebih profesional.

Walau sekecil mana pun perniagaan anda, mewujudkan profil syarikat yang menarik akan memberikan keyakinan kepada pelbagai pihak.

RANGKAIAN

Hadirkan diri dan kenalkan perniagaan anda kepada sesiapa sahaja dan di mana sahaja.

Pastikan anda mempunyai kad nama ke mana sahaja anda pergi. Ini adalah antara cara terbaik bagi membina jenama syarikat atau perniagaan anda.

MANFAATKAN TUKILAN

Jenama anda akan lebih dikenali jika anda melakukan hanya satu perkara atau bidang yang memang menjadi kepakaran anda.

Dengan ini jenama anda akan dikenali untuk perkara tersebut. Ini penting bagi menjadikan anda sebagai seorang pakar.

PASUKAN ANDA

Untuk membina jenama yang ulung, semua orang terlibat harus memainkan peranan masing-masing.

Pekerja anda harus diberikan ilmu dalam menjaga imej jenama yang dibina itu manakala pelanggan anda perlu mempunyai pandangan positif terhadap jenama anda.

Ringkasnya, strategi penjenamaan amat penting dalam mencapai kejayaan jangka panjang niaga anda.

Ramai usahawan berpendapat penjenamaan adalah sekadar mewujudkan logo yang menarik. Ini tidak benar sama sekali.

Penjenamaan adalah lebih kepada menjaga emosi serta minda pelanggan anda terhadap imej perniagaan anda.

Dalam membina jenama yang terkenal, anda harus memulakannya daripada awal lagi.

Dewan Perniagaan dan Perusahaan Melayu Singapura (DPPMS) melalui Pusat Pembangunan Keusahawan (EDC) menawarkan khidmat penjenamaan.

Beberapa pihak swasta juga menawarkan harga yang rendah, mengikut profil sesebuah perniagaan.

Hanya satu syarikat Melayu yang telah memulakan khidmat penjenamaan di sini – dapatkan maklumat di www.chillipadi.webs.com.

AbangAbu berharap dengan adanya khidmat seperti ini dapat membantu usahawan kita membina jenama yang dikenali bukan sahaja di sini, malah di persada antarabangsa.
