WHAT DO THE GENERATION Y HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ME
When I was in my Poly days, I was fortunate to be selected to be in an internship in very big local company during 2001. My position was “Sales Associate”. YES! I was only 19 then!
I joined the Financial Services industry back in 2004.
I should be feeling on TOP of the World!! Don’t you agree?
At age 23, quarter million savings in the bank, driving a black M-series Sports BMW and sitting beside me is my beautiful girlfriend. What more can u ask for??!!!
The truth is, I was happy with my results for sure. However, I was not happy with my process of achieving it. Although I was the Top, I did not have any sense of fulfillment. The whole sales process was designed for products to be sold, and targets to be hit. I am certain my ‘clients’ buy from me is because I am just a very good salesperson.
What came to my realization was that if I will want to be a salesperson, I do not need to be in Finance after all, I CAN BE A SALESPERSON ANYWHERE!!!
I join the bank for ‘greener’ pasture, or is it?
I thought I can be more objective if I move to the bank. What do u think?
During my stay in the bank, I did managed to learn and expand my financial knowledge with regards to more financial instruments, which I have to give credit to. At the same time, I realized that it is just to have more weapons in your arsenal so that you can get the sale.
To summarise, I am sure you heard before this saying ‘The Banker always win, the Player don’t.’ The same issue arise is that again the structure was designed for products to be sold and targets to be hit. It is a systemic, industrial and structural problem that we are facing.
I am grateful that I met up with a mentor, he guided me towards the right direction in life and get me on track back in this industry.
I was given opportunity to speak at major platforms to educate the public about financial planning. It was all along my passion that this business or profession should be done the right way by doing things right!!
Performance Coach, Author and Speaker to many, I have inspired many to be successful in their career, wealth and having a clear vision and direction in their life.
What motivates me now is that I would like to build an alliance of like-mined people to evolve the financial services landscape by doing business the right and professional way.
