1)What kind of business do you have? What inspired you to become an Entrepreneur business owner?
I am very passionate about sales & business development. To be a trainer and public speaker is always in my dreams. Based on my knowledge and experiences from my previous sales management positions and managing my own businesses, I have found a way to combine these passions into one vision. WANPreneur Solutions was set-up to fulfill these dreams. We conduct trainings and talks to sales people and provide them the skills and the right mindset to achieve their desired results.
What inspired me is actually my own family. It is when I have my first child, a complete family and I am only earning $950 per month. I started to think and I knew I need to change. I need to change for the better and provide them with the best lifestyle. The only way is to have my own business. Now, I got 4 lovely kids.
2)Did you need to have a certain mindset to achieve success?
My family do not have any business background. When I first started my own business, I got a lot of negative remarks from the people around me especially my loved ones. Still remember in my down times, they are more negative. But I am always POSITIVE and have a strong BELIEVE in myself. I stay FOCUS to achieve my goals and show them the results.
3)Have you noticed certain advantages to being an entrepreneur business owner?
As a business owner, i feel the advantage is that I am the decision maker. I can do things the way I want it to be.
4)Did you have a mentor to help you get started?
When I started, I don’t really have a mentor. I read a lot of motivational books and watch tv business programmes. I catch the tips and apply it.
5)Approximately how much money did you invest before your business became profitable?
I only invest a small amount of money to get started. Only on the things that I really need to start the business like name cards, flyers etc. I keep the money rolling for more profits and invest again.
6)What ways have you found to be most effective in marketing your product or service to get sales?
The best is way of marketing is by referrals. By delivering the best service, you will get the best support.
7)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?
Just like how I step into business world. No knowledge, no experience, no mentor. Mix around with people with the same vision or who already achieve it. Indirectly, we are one step nearer to our goals. Commit to what we decide and never give up!
8)What’s next for you?
I always want to share my knowledge to more and more people. My define of success is to help others to achieve their goals. That’s a true success! Next, I’ve decided to write my own books. “Mind Your Sales”, coming soon… So, stay tuned!!
9)Few words of Abang Abu and cabaran101010? Optional Questions
Actually when I first heard and saw Abg Abu on tv, I tell myself… “This is the MAN I want meet and learn from…” with no idea how to meet him. Now, I can say he is my first mentor guiding me to achieve my goals. Cabaran101010 which is created by him is a great programme as a guide to excel in business.
