For the month of April 2016 and second half of March 2016, I was on my own, starting fresh, climbing up from the bottom, carving out my own route, my journey ahead. Having some years of various work experiences in different industries help yet there were times when the journey ahead seems daunting at times due to the current economic climate and outlook. Competition is tight and intense in pretty much almost all of the industries and businesses that operate in Singapore.
Researching, Planning, Networking and Action, the headline on my article today. In a way, it was a bit of foolishness, complacency, thinking that my careful and meticulous planning nature would help me to make the business setup smoother and faster. Alas, I was given a wake up call that my usual careful and meticulous planning is not good enough! This came about when I was doing my strategic planning and research on setting up the business, many more things and matters pop up unexpectedly, that meant that I missed them out!

This stage is putting the final bits and pieces of the puzzle together, each puzzle represent a business. I have two puzzles on hand and in due time, I will share more on them. I am putting my previous work experiences, marketing (social/digital/traditional) and social media to maximum leverage in those two.
Taking another step, one at a time. Keep walking, with a photography backpack on my back.
