  • Why did you get started on this path towards building your own business?

I always disagree to the notion that every fresh graduate have to follow the conventional path to work for a company, and gradually climbing the corporate ladder.

Although I acknowledge there is valid points at employement but personally, I would rather work my hardest to build my own dream right from the beginning rather than working hard to build dreams of others.

  • Was there any inspiration or anyone who inspired you to pursue your dream to become an entrepreneur today?

Our company’s angel investor – Sean Teoh is definitely the immediate inspiration to me as we work very closely together. He is incredibly successful with his F&B businesses and various investments. I genuinely think people like Sean will be the kind of individuals that would make Malaysia a serious global player.

  • In your experience, what are the 3 Winning Traits that Entrepreneurs should possess when they start their business?

a) Proactiveness b) Persevarence c) Humilty
