When you try so hard... but still fail

Have you guys been in the situation where you try so hard yet ended up with failure. It is really sad..when all dreams shattered. It happens to a friend of mine, his dream is all about education believing that it will be a BOOM in the 21st century. Being so optimistic he invested tons of $$ into Webucation or E learning. Striving to fight for success, he confronted many venture capitalist, politicians and even the press for a road to success. I have never realized that starting a business is so tough since I seldom witness the bitterness of business life when every things glitters in front of us. I am so happy to have such a friend and do learn a lot each time we met online. It is true that every success comes from a thousand failures and to be successful, my friend has to swallow bitterness not a cup but a barrel of hard taste bitterness. He use to tell me "I need to break this... it must break", at first i thought why such a rush? but later i understand that time is flying by so fast in a blink of an eye. I do wish that he managed to stand on and swallow bitterness before he savor success. Life is just like a flower: It takes weeks and months to care for the plant since nusery but once it is fully mature, the beauty of a flower is unimaginable. So every beautiful flower has its bitter past just like us 'human'

"Taking Care of your Backside"

Been working in this new company XYZ for 8 months. I would like to pour some of my disatisfcation arsises from my present company. Everything you do needs more than 2 signatures (Departmental Manager, Human Resource Manager and CEO) - this is really sick man and looking at this condition the HR Manager really want to take care of his backside all day long. This is the first company which i stumble implement 3 signatures. Even applying medical leave needs signature from CEO. I mean the XYZ company is a MULTI MILLION dollar company but is really behaving like a "kilang kicap". Damn man... what a company...!!!!!

Deperate for Additional Income

Have you been into a stage where you decided to quit your job and commit your life for a business. If you desperately answer YES, please take a deep breath and ask yourself the same question again.

Do you understand the difference between a business and self employed?

If you would quit your job and decided to do "Char Koay Teow" yet earning RM 15K per month, this is actually a self employed. Most of us or most Malaysian are more likely to quit job and venture into self employed. Eventually they do get pretty with their income. But.... wait.... what is the difference between a self employed and a Businessman ??

If you are self employed, the sad part is you have to work all day long because your hours is equal to your income. So meaning, you earn according to the number of hours you work. if you happen to get sick you will not be earning on that day. Lookingggggggggggggg back to the employement world, it has the similar structure compared to self employed. In the employment world, you tend to treat your boss like your customer and are force to do things above your expectation. You cannot say NO because in the employment world your boss is your ONLY customer whichg means you have to be extra careful. It is just the same a a char koay teow person selling a plate of fried koay teow to a single customer.

personally there is not much of a difference between self employed compared to a employed worker. Maybe..... a self employed worker do not need to look at the boss's face since he is the boss of the business. But the positive side of the employed worker is you will get paid even when you are sick !!!!!!!!!


So how do you move from self employed to Businessman? Simple, learn the power of leveraging. Even in self business once you started to hire your worker.. you are changing your self employed into a business... you take more risk but you get less responsibility. Accountability is still the same because it is your business and you have to be accountable or liable for the performance of the company.... but your responsility will be leverage by others. As business grow, a business man will look for expansion and normally they will resort to power of leveraging again. It is time we look business in a different perspective. Thing big aim big.
