How I Got Started
Being my own boss was always my dream since I graduated from university. (Now I realize that it is not that I want to make more money or to be some important person. It is something deep…) The interesting thing was that my major at university was little to do with internet marketing.
My be-my-own-boss dream finally came true 6 years after I immigrated to Vancouver Canada, after doing bunch of jobs as business administrator, insurance broker, sales women and lastly as a marketing assistant executive in a local high-tech company. I quite that 9 to 5 “stable” and “good-pay-salary” job back in 2008, and started to explore my journey of being my own boss.
I learned different skill sets of online marketing, social media marketing, local business marketing from handful of savvy marketers. More importantly, I started to understand the psychology behind marketing, through trials and errors.
I realized that the best marketing is the message I can deliver to direct people’s attention to possible solutions to the psychological needs of human being. (Now I realize that there is no best marketing. Marketing is just like life, a process. What you can achieve depends on what intention you put on during that process. What you do is not the key.)
Who I Am
At work, I work in front of my computer for many hours a day. I like to write because I like to share my thoughts and knowledge. At bottom of my heart I am a learner and an “adapter”. I helped quite a few (want to help more) local businesses and professionals with their online presence and marketing.
At home, I am a typical wife dealing with household chores. My husband is an unbelievable sharp and insightful being. He is my inspiration and wisdom source. I have two lovely kids, who likes to play mischief to me. I guess because I have a little too serious looking on my face. (I might look serious when I am thinking.) Whatever they do, puts lots of smiles and laughs on me. 🙂
Currently, I am on my journey to discover who I really am…through dealing with my jobs as a business woman.
People Who Have Influenced Me
Sadhguru, Yogi mystic, who opens up my heart, who gives me the chance to see life in a complete new perspective, who tells me that life is the most profound than anything else in the cosmos…Finding Sadhguru on internet was an accident. But starting the journey to discover real me is not. I wish to meet him in person one day.
Dr. Pang, Zhi Neng Qigong founder and grandmaster. I started to practice qigong in my early 20s (from 1990s). Qigong practicing equips me with tons of energy, open and creative mind, strong will power, and great health. Zhi Neng Qigong was my foundation of physical being. I met Dr Pang in person in 2018.
Bob Proctor, a great life and success coach, who revealed the secret of being successful. He was the most insightful motivation speakers in the western world (my personal opinion). I joined Bob’s “You were born rich” program in 2009.
Dave Ramsey, a super successful business man who teaches about money and finance. In my opinion, he is more spiritual than any of those who claim to be spiritual.
