Subsequently he worked his way up over 9 years in 3 different logistics organizations before starting his entrepreneurship journey.
During his teenage years while waiting for “O” Level results, he has worked several part time odd jobs such as a waiter, dishwasher, flyer distributor, warehouse packer, factory operator, retail assistant at pasar malams/supermarkets and even as a TV extra. Most of these jobs were extremely long hours with very low pay (SGD4.50 to SGD5 per hour). Through these jobs, he developed a strong work ethic, perseverance, positive mindset and realized the importance of financial literacy.

He has also completed 2 full Standard-Chartered marathons, 3 vertical marathons and a bungy jump in New Zealand. His main reasons for joining these events was to challenge himself both physically and mentally to the maximum limits, for the ultimate purpose of self improvement and emerging with a stronger willpower.
