Entrepreneurship Journey Thus Far

Sometimes I don’t understand my mum because the double standard-ness is at sky high level that sometimes I can’t comprehend with her thoughts.

She always said that; “Wah, you can be a boss leh because you got the brains and the guts” but on another hand “Why you wanna be a boss ah? Find a proper job lah. You need to feed your kids. Be a boss hor, very stress one leh.

Like hello mum, a boss is a proper job. Ok perhaps my entrepreneurship was never a smooth sailing one. My first venture was into blogshops in Year 2011 if I remember correctly?

The idea came about during some free times during the maternity leave and it triggered me to explore a second income but it becomes a good learning ground despite the fact that it’s the blogshop bloom era where majority are hosted via either blogspot or livejournal.

But apparently I didn’t become the next Love, Bonito. 🙂 I feel that the reason was that the instability and the full-time job are already too overwhelmed to handle so it didn’t give me the diehard PUSH factor.

So I closed down the now-defunct blogshop and donated all my new clothing to SCWO for the name of charity and hopefully finder keepers theory.

This is not the end. I didn’t give up and work on the — many ideas which came upon me during the pregnancy, maternity period and post-period. Helping to solve my “own” personal issue as a mother of one, two, three and now, four kids (plus 2 furkids) and this is how it evolved to Scentimental and Piggyback.

Failure is not everything. It’s a good lesson learnt and it made me a stronger person. Sometimes you win some, you lose some.

It was never easy to hold a full-time job and work on the other portfolios during the wee hours. Sometimes I only get to have 2-hours of sleep each day and at times when I got burnt out but at the end of the day, it’s to solve a particular problem, a common problem.

Perhaps will share more about each company in coming future. 🙂

OPINION: China’s role as the leading blockchain-powered Nation.

Opinions are my own. 

On 25th October, $BTC spiked and major uptrends can be seen for some anchoring coins perhaps largely due to the #FOMO mentality as President Xi announced that China should seize the opportunity of blockchain, egging on to be at the forefront of the race.

And everyone in the industry knew for the fact that cryptocurrency is banned in China however cryptocurrencies are strongly backed by blockchain technologies. It’s somehow linked as majority of the successful decentralized applications (DApps) are either found in China or US.

It’s a good breakthrough as it meant that more companies, especially the major corporations would explore the usage of blockchain technologies as many are afraid to take that bold step when the blockchain technologies are mostly in their infant stages.

At this present time, there is still a lack of successful use-cases to validate. With support from key leaders, the key of confidence is then injected and definitely, a boost is seen.

The future is hopeful, at least with the current factors and the boost. 🙂
