This week Entrepreneur

Hi,

Abang Abu very excited to present to you one more young entrepreneur who had started her business despite lack of experience and start to build her business in the field that she choose.

He business located at Rochor Center near to Bugis MRT station.

Met her in a seminar and know that this young lady have so much drive and passion in bringing her business to level.

Lets read what she shared with us……

Enjoy and learn something from this interview.

1)What kind of business do you have? What inspired you to become an
Entrepreneur business owner?
Core business is the supply of aromatherapy and spa products to spas,
hotels, beauty/spa training schools and freelance therapists. The drive for
empowerment and self fulfillment inspires me.

2)Did you need to have a certain mindset to achieve success?
Need to be able to accept challenges, take risks, daring, willing to learn
and most importantly step outside of your comfort zone.
3)Have you noticed certain advantages to being an entrepreneur  business
owner?
For me the advantages are - I am very involved in all aspects of decision
making (empowerment), flexibility of time, I reap what I sow, and there has
never been job dissatisfaction despite long hours.
4)Is it difficult to get financing for businesses? If so why and are there
any solutions?
Yes it will be difficult if the business model is a traditional set up and
is not yet/very profitable during the application for financing. More
opportunities for financing if the business idea is something new that fits
a need/void in the market or it has shown some profitability.
5)Did you have a mentor to help you get started?
No, more of advice from people who are/have been in business.
6)Approximately how much money did you invest before your business became
profitable?
$50,000
7)What resources were most helpful to you when you were starting your
business?
The internet
8)What ways have you found to be most effective in marketing your product
or service to get sales?
With a good, quality product, follow through all sales opportunities with
sincerity, do business with integrity leads to great referrals.
9)What tips can you give others who want to embrace their dream but, don’t
have the confidence or feel they don’t have what it takes to succeed?
Listen and learn from those who have been in business, including those that
have succeeded and failed. Make a judgement call and observe how they do/did
business – what qualities do those who succeed have in comparison to those
who failed. Learn from other’s mistakes. Know that if you don’t have it, you
can acquire it – be it knowledge or character building.
10)How do you manage juggling the responsibilities of being a entrepreneur?
Still work in progress. Prioritizing is important. Identify what you are
best at and focus your efforts. Example if I am good at sales, I should
spend valuable time doing more “profit making” work then spend time updating
expenses sheet. Leave that to others to help you out.
11)What’s next for you?
Diversify to include more range of items to supply the same market– related
items such as customized bath robes, spa accessories and decorative items
such as candle holders, lamps, bowls, trays. They need to be different from
those easily available in the market.

No More Excuses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DearAll,

Are you making  progress that you want  ?I am individually mentoring a dozen of individuals.Its just happen after talks and seminars that i do people want me to give advice and mentor them. It seems to be the natural results of knowing a lot of ambitious people and offer them advice whenever been asked for.

I always been asking them a lot of questions and it seems that common problem with most of them.They are all making excuse.

Are you moving forward at the pace you set for yourself?If not,  do this today:

1. Take out a sheet of paper and write down your current  Life Goals. You should have four of them .

2. Underneath or next to each,  list three main reason for not accomplishing it.

3.  Take a long hard look at those reasons. Then kiss them goodbye.

4.  Promise yourself you will never use them as excuse again.

This means you will never mention them to anyone. You wont talk about them when you are scared,  tired,  and never ever again  allow them a place in your speech. Nor will you provide them a berth in your thinking.

If you are going to fail, do so properly—–without excuses.

If you are going to succeed, you have to leave those excuses behing you.

NO MORE EXCUSES………………………………JUST DO IT.

DPPMS Annual Dinner Event

Indeed it was a great event where about 800 people attended the event that was so grand and colourful.This event also witnesses the young fashion designers who display their work and also compete in the award for the best designer.

One thing that i am really happy that many young ones are now more willing and dare to take the risk and venture into business.

I believe that the only way to get rid of the procrastination in getting something started is just DO IT .

So why wait you can start to do something out of your interest and get it marketed globally.

How to do it….. www.nowasia.sg condcuting 1 day seminar by Dr Irfan Khairy www.rahsiainternet.com  this November 17th. You can attend or just let others know about it.

Beside Listening one more important skill…….

So, is it just enough listening only…….

Is it enough? Well in fact i don’t think so . Because just by listening only is not good …… You must make a great speech.

So how to make a GREAT speech……….

There are only two ways to make great speeches:………….

1. Talk spontaneously about what you know.

2. Present a speech that you have carefully prepared beforehand.

What Muhammad Ali said about boxing is true for speech making as well., He said”The flight is won or lost far away from witness — behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before i dance under those light.”

Remember these 9 words below to give a good speech in any topic

Tell Them something useful that they don’t already know”

I would love to see our entrepreneurs can give great speeches too.

Best Important Skill one must have…….

How are all of you?

I believe that everyone just fresh back from some holidays. So this is the right time for me to share with you something that i truly believe that it is an important skill.

I have been reading and listening to some tape about listening. It makes the argument that you can increase your personal power by cultivating this under appreciated skill.

Being a good listener makes you a better negotiator, a more effective manager, a more charming leader and even a successful businessman.

Being bad listener has the opposite effect.

Listening is different than just not talking. Heres some tips on how to do it.

1. The first and most important Golden Rule of Listening is to shut up and let the other person talk first.

2. Listen on two levels: to the literal content and to the emotional story behind it.

3.Restating the speakers thoughts and feelings ensures him that you understand him and makes him grateful and more open to your ideas.

Just do this …….

the next time you sit down next to someone you want to impress keep that in mind ….. LISTEN…..

This week Entrepreneur FADZULI………. answers our interview….

fazuli.jpg

1)What kind of business do you have? What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?

Ok 1 registered business, 3 other forms of income yg belum jadi registered bisnis…

What inspired me? Robert T Kiyosaki. I’ve never look back after reading his book – Rich Dad Poor Dad.

2)Did you need to have a certain mindset to achieve success?
Yeah. nak kena elaborate eh?

“Its not about what you do tommorrow that matters, but what you do today that will make the difference.”

Maksudnya – kalau kita tak merancang hari ini atau pun not taking action today, esok hari akan disia-siakan.

3)Have you noticed certain advantages to being an entrepreneur?

Tax breaks!! You decide what you want to do, not others telling you what to do!! You juggle your own time!! You see your family more!!

4)Is it difficult to get financing for businesses? If so why and are there any solutions?

Initially “yes” it will be difficult. Many people will say ahh i will help you ah when you start your business but in truth none of them will because they don’t have that believe in you that you can earn that money back.

Always start with family first. Please don’t use all your savings..even though i did, i found that they are better ways later on which is to invest things in small proportions first. Make the money first then use that to roll back.

Abang Abu teaches the $1 to $2 Money Magnet technique…We should all learn this method… Come for Abang Abu’s Map lessons at Nowasia.SG!!

Always start small and grow later on.

5)Did you have a mentor to help you get started?
Nope!! But along the way, I met mentors like Kak Jen Anwar ( Gold Chocs ) and yes Abang Abu! Dont worry too much about this, along the way after you start you will meet genuine people like them to help you grow and be on your way but you must also search for them and take action!! You wont find them sitting down at home.

6)Approximately how much money did you invest before your business became profitable?
Belum profitable lagi!! Started with $30…that was all i had!! Insyallah it will grow.

7)What resources were most helpful to you when you were starting your business?
The computer!! Parents. Their endurance to tahan you for the decisions that you make cos initially they are the funders. They are also the first one who discourages you from going all out but when the situation changes later on, they will also start to change. Begin with yourself, then people around you and then you will see your friends doing the same.

8)What ways have you found to be most effective in marketing your product or service to get sales?
Still looking for the right formula. But so far its the word of mouth strategy. It beats all the advertising campaigns.

9)What tips can you give others who want to embrace their dream but, don’t have the confidence or feel they don’t have what it takes to succeed?

Take baby steps and always keep the dream alive!! I listen to a very good motivational CD a few years back. It talks about protecting your dreams. Dreams are the driving force in what you do. If you allow others to steal it away from you, then there goes your desire to grow your business.

Here’s how to do it.

a) Write your ultimate goal as big as possible on a paper. This need to be clear and pasted at a place where you can see it all the time. SO every time you wake up you will see it to remind yourself that this is what you want.

example.. Time with Family and a Million Dollars…Draw it and paste it on a wall!!

b) Mix with people who are keen for you to succeed not people who only like to waste your time…

c) Read!! You need to expand your knowledge. Talking to people is not enough. You have to read!! If you dont like reading, change that habit, pick up and easy book of about 50 pages first. Practice reading a book 15 minutes a day!! If you get used to reading, you can finish 200-300 pages of books within a day.

Why reading? Knowledge comes from many places, when you read, it allows you time to digest the ideas and somehow it makes you more intellectual and it helps you in your conversations also.

When and where to read? Use the time on the train on the way to work or your break times to read not to sleep. Even 5 minutes of reading can change your life. Keep a book with you all the time.

When i was younger and Uztaz mention to me, learn a line from the Quran every day and that will change you and your life. Its the same principle here. If we spend the time to gain knowledge daily, your life will change by leaps and bounds.

Recommended books to read:

Quran – you can surf the net and search for verses related to business and character building. Its a good place to start. People say our Prophet, Muhammad, is the best businessman and leader to learn from. So yes why not start from here.

Robert T Kiyosaki’s – books to build your mentality.
Get Sun Tzu Art of War – to learn about strategies!!
Read about Entrepreneurs – to keep inspiring yourself!! Nothing beats a dosage of great inspiration.

For those who wish to start a business and do not know what to do first!! I encourage you to read books mention above. The Quran is actually the best to start with. Find their translations and understand its meaning – not sure ask an Uztaz.

10) How do you manage juggling the responsibilities of being a entrepreneur?

This is the toughest thing to do. Somehow its just manageable although there are times when its too much!! Then your skills as a manager need to kick in..Learn to outsource and learn to find the right people to help you out. Ok actually that is also a tough job but someone has to do it right and that’s you. That is why networking sessions are very important.

Yes being a manager!! This is an integral learning process of an entrepreneur. You have to learn to be one so that someday some of your jobs can be replaced by someone else.

Regards to family and friends, sometimes you have to make the sacrifices.

11)What’s next for you?
Its a Secret!! Cannot announce yet!! Okok..hints ah.. A project with Abang Abu & Ed and another with a few friends from NUS.
Do comment any learning point from here.
