How would people describe you in three words?
Sincere, easy-going, reliable.
If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
Can I choose a sea creature instead? A fish because I love the ocean. A fish gets to swim in and explore the seemingly infinite underwater world and enjoy the beautiful marine life.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I particularly love Europe, especially France because I like the culture and I speak French.
What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?
A skill to forecast the performance of the stock markets accurately.
What do you do on your days off?
I spend time with my family, meet up with friends, watch Netflix and catch up on my readings.
When did you realise that you wanted to be a financial services consultant? What has changed since you first started?
I have always been attracted to the time flexibility of this profession, as well as the prospects of being able to achieve financial independence vis-à-vis the fixed salary structures of a typical employee in the corporate world.
How do you define success?
Being financially independent and debt-free, having the means to make donations to the needy and travelling to the countries that I love.
What’s your philosophy in life?
C’est la vie. What’s yours is yours.
What is the best thing about being a Top of the Table member?
Nothing tangible, really. Perhaps a greater sense of personal achievement.
