My journey and story.
I have a unique background being of Chinese South African heritage. I was originally born in South Africa where I went to a strict all-boy private school before relocating to Canada. After relocating several times in Canada my family settled in Vancouver, Canada. I managed to become a highly ranked Tennis junior player in British Columbia. I was always into computers and began university in Computer science at Simon Fraser University. I caught up with the party life that I missed in high school during University and somehow managed to finished my degree in Communications at Simon Fraser University. After that I built a solid career in IT working my way up the corporate ladder to an IT Manager.
I always wanted to be successful. My definition of success at the time was what most people consider a normal path to success. Study hard and get a degree, get a good job doing what you love, earn good money, get your own place, get a good car ,and try to have a family. I did all that. I was an IT manager for a top private company in Vancouver, one of the most livable cities in the world. I bought my own 745 square foot apartment in downtown Yaletown Vancouver and owned a decent ride. I should have been happy, but to be honest with myself I wasn’t.
Making a consistent income over the Internet was a great feeling that I wanted more of.
Things I can’t live without
- Gear to create and share content – Laptop, Camera, Phone and accessories I need to create and communicate
- Fast Wifi – To upload and download. Fast is a minimum of 10mb/s down/up
- Liberal Internet – Some countries like Singapore and Mainland China restrict certain sites and Social media. At a minimum I need access to social media for my business
- Balance and exercise – I love to keep fit whether it’s swimming, tennis, basketball, or riding a bike. Sometimes I need to unplug from all technology
- Good comfort foods – Sometimes I think I should create a food blog. I love foods from around the world – dumplings, meat pies, burgers, spaghetti bolognese, beef noodles, curries, and much more
- A strong black coffee. Medium roast Eastside from JJ bean coffee in Vancouver is good. UCC coffee in Taipei and Japan is good too
- Craft Beer, Dry Japanese Beer, Big Reds, Crisp cool White wines – Asahi super dry gold, IPA’s, merlot
- Fresh juices – Delicious guava juice, coconut milk, fresh orange juice.
I’ve reinvented myself into a success before and my plan is to follow the process that has worked for me before plus then some and develop a successful business.
