I remember using a computer for the first time at the age of 8.
And then access this thing called “the internet” at the age of 10. That was mindblowing technology to me then. It continues to blow my mind even till now.
Since I was old enough to think about what I really wanted to do, I always knew that it will be something related to the internet (was a geek, am a geek, will always be a geek). After graduating from school at 20, all Singaporean boys have to go through the same rite of passage – National Service and train as a soldier for 2 years.
I remember how I had to stay in camp from Monday to Friday and then I’d go home to study on things like “how to make money online” over the weekends! (I’m sure lots of people had the same idea before!)
2 years passed by in a flash and when National Service was over, I had 2 choices. Either go to University or pursue my internet career full time. I chose neither. Because unfortunately I found myself in financial difficulty and almost chased of our apartment!
That’s when I decided to take a Maritime scholarship to get some money to pay off my school debts, and subsequently I had to work at a shipyard to serve my bond. 4 gruelling years later of working 14 hours a day, 6.5 days a week… I was out. And I was free. I was ready to start my life as an internet marketer.
That’s when my life truly started. Fast forward 6 years, I’ve been involved (or distracted) in many models of internet marketing – Email marketing, affiliate marketing, SEO, copywriting, video marketing, the list goes on. I’ve done my own ventures, I’ve intern-ed for major companies, I’ve worked as a media buyer to generate millions of niche specific leads. While I love everything I’ve learnt and am still fascinated by how much possibilities the internet can offer, my passion still lies with Facebook and Instagram advertising. These 2 channels have helped me grow businesses (mine and my clients’) incredibly fast and cost-effectively, and most of my major successes was achieved with them.
Since then, I have spent all my time focused on honing my skills and expanding my team. The reason I continue to spend so much time on my craft is because firstly, I’m a geek (ahaha) and secondly, I am passionate in helping others achieve success. If you want to take your business to the next level with paid advertising, my team and I would love to help.
