Entrepreneurship: the infectious disease

Posted on June 7, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

I recall the days i told my mum I wish to one day own a international business. She reprimanded me and said the classic line in “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”. She scolded be for being unrealistic, and told me to study properly (which she knew i could) and get a high paying managerial job. How classic.

But 2 years forward, things changed in my family, and we are “sorta” forced to pursue the entrepreneurial track. While it was to my 2nd sis’ dismay, I have been secretly very happy about it!

Now, my eldest sister who is currently in her 4th year medical school in UNSW is catching on the entrepreneurial disease as well. She keeps emailing me her business ideas. Looks like the entrepreneurial dream is indeed infectious 😉

A dream that hasn’t died (:

Ahh~ I still recall the days when I was in in Kindergarten or lower primary, playing play-pretend games with my sis (or soft toys after my sis outgrew such games). I always loved to be the cashier of a “Ma Ma shop”, or also known as a minimart typically run by local Indians (haha not sure what it was of this ethnicity).

I also recall my mum’s words when I told her about my random ideas after graduating from Junior College. “Stop dreaming, only one in a million reach that stage. Just go get a 10k+/month job!!”.

Now things have changed so much in my family, and it has given us the courage to take the first step.. Sometimes, all you need is a little push, a situation that gives you the courage to fulfil your dreams.

We’ll see if it works out! 😉 If it doesn’t, at least we’ve given it a shot and tried our best.

On the side note, Grasshopper.com is seriously good at marketing themselves! haha
