How did you get into this business?
I wouldn’t really say I was good with numbers before college. But I realized that I was a problem solver, and when group discussions came along, I took charge and did the tasks that were needed. I saw this as my strength, and I wanted to make use of it by tackling one of the biggest needs of individuals globally–and that is learning how to invest as well as how to manage personal finances. So I got myself a degree in business. I worked for a couple of investment firms before I decided to establish myself as an independent professional.
What do you think is one skill that’s important for an entrepreneur like you?
To be a good entrepreneur of any kind, I think you need to have good social skills. Social skills don’t just mean learning how to talk to people. I think good social skills are about keeping your word and having a solid heart of integrity even if things don’t go your way. When you talk to people, they want to see that you’re sincere. When you present your product or services, you are at peace that you will deliver and you only choose to give what’s best for your clients. To me, that’s good social thinking, and any entrepreneur who possesses this will move leaps and bounds.
What’s your morning routine like?
I am a morning person, so I don’t really need to wake up to alarms. My body’s clock will usually wake me up at around 6-6:30 AM, and that’s the time I do a quick workout. I either run for 20 minutes on the treadmill or do some lifting. After that, I take a shower and head to the kitchen to make myself breakfast. My go-to breakfasts are a healthy salad or chicken wraps, or oatmeal when I feel like having something sweet. After that, I head straight to work by either meeting my clients or writing reports at home needed for a requirement. I also blog regularly about personal finance.
What are some great books you have read recently?
I came across these two books, called “Rework” and “Zero to One”. I am really ingesting the ideas in these books, as they were recommended to me by a business colleague. I think that the ideas in those two books are very original. They’ve made me realize and see what the weak areas of businesses are nowadays and how I can help to change this. The book “Rework” talks about this a lot. It has great topics on learning how to scale up a company strategically to avoid losses and other bad possibilities.
What are your hobbies?
My top two hobbies are reading and traveling. I think those two hobbies go hand in hand. Recently, I had the opportunity to revisit one of my favorite places of all time, the Swiss Alps. It was just perfect because it’s winter time, and my family and I got to take awesome pictures. During quiet moments, I enjoy readings books about innovators in business and technology.
What is some advice you want to give to young entrepreneurs?
My advice to aspiring young entrepreneurs is, be willing to take risks. I’ve watched a show that portrays a lot of this new generation that are scared to run their own businesses because many people tell them that startups are more likely doomed to fail. I say, if you have a great idea, pursue it. Pursue it, but not carelessly. Always go by a calculated risk. This way, even if your company experiences losses, it’s just a matter of breaking even from your starting capital. If you succeed, it will be an awesome bonus.
