I have been blessed by many mentors who taught me various things over my career as an entrepreneur, investor and as a holistic person. Without these shared experiences and imparting of skills and mindsets, I would not be where I am today, impacting and changing lives in the field of entrepreneurship and investment.
Mentorship is often ignored in entrepreneurship. To me, it is a vital part of growing an entrepreneur and having those 1-to-1 sessions of shared experiences help develop a mature mindset of success in one's life.
Mentorship is also a long-term relationship and not one-off coffee sessions. A mentor does more than being concerned over the business, but also the life of the entrepreneur and how he/she grows in maturity. A mentor is very much part of the entrepreneur's life.
Being a mentor is part of executing my vision, which is to raise a generation of young Singaporean entrepreneurs to succeed and actively pay-it-forward to the next generation.
I am proud to have worked in the lives of many entrepreneurs and individuals whom I have come to regard as trusted friends.
