It has brought me excellent results!

Oh no, an own goal!

In networking, it is absolutely essential that our every move and action is seen with a positive light, and is seen as genuinely adding value to whatever situation there is.
In a series of e-mails that were passing through among members of a BNI group in preparation for their upcoming Guest Day, there was one that [...]

General, On my mind now 18 November 2010 | 0 Comments

What are the three most dangerous words in the English language?
I did a poll on Facebook and received the following responses: ‘it doesn’t matter’, ‘I don’t care’, ‘I don’t know’, ‘I am sorry’, ‘I love you’, ’screwed for life’, ‘wtf’, ‘on the way’, ‘it’s your fault’.

Sometime end of last month, I myself attended a program to brush up my own skills in this [...]

He said in his e-mail that his company individual and group sales quotas have kicked in and therefore he needs to leave his participation from his BNI group in order to focus on achieving it.

The most difficult thing to do

General, Networking Expert 13 September 2010 | 0 Comments

According to Henry Ford, the most difficult thing to do is to think, that’s why so few people engage in it.
I should think so.
However, for Malaysians (or even other nationalities) another difficult thing to do is to practise open and honest communication.

Here are the books I am reading this September 2010:
Michael Gerber’s E-Myth Mastery.
I am so looking forward to get this book going so that it will enable me to sharpen my saw in my own business, get my own business plan planned and executed with greater precision and perhaps be able to have conversations with [...]

General 21 July 2010 | 1 Comment

Last Saturday, I was conducting a new member orientation program for new BNI members, referred to as Member Success Program (MSP).

Power of conversations

General 8 July 2010 | 4 Comments

I have been planning to write this article for 2-years now but haven’t been able to because I wasn’t sure how to articulate my thoughts in writing. This is a big one for me. But time’s up and I must write it sooner than later.
I took an issue with a person who is very [...]
