I went out of the house extra early this morning to go to McDonalds.

Not just classroom smarts, but street smarts,
Research, networking, closing deals, all used to happen on the streets, face to face. But now Social Media has somehow changed that.
This Saturday is a special one for me. I'll be sharing the stage with my beautiful wife, Michelle, to talk about Social Media Parenting, together with our good friend and Social Media Expert, Mr. Russel Patalinghog. (Fully Booked BGC from 2pm–5pm)
As parents, we realized the need to prepare our children, not only for their offline life, but also for their ONLINE life. Whatever they do online is as important – it's an extension of their life off the screen.
Our role as parents is to prepare them to use these tools the right way. As I'd always say "Out of the abundance of the heart, the Facebook Status speaks!"
There are many learnings or benefits on being connected, but there are real threats and dangers too. And in this learning session, we hope to be able to equip the parents on how they can use social media to protect their children, and at the same time, raise them with the right heart and the right values.
There are few seats left. Hope you can join us! Visit START LEARNING or http://tinyurl.com/
The best investment is on people. If you run or own a business, spend time with your team, suppliers & customers.
Real "face time" will always out do 'Facebook' time or any other way of communication. Being there with them will give you a better grasp of what they're thinking and of what's really happening.
You'll make better decisions this way.
The fun part in a startup - coming up with ideas, the brainstorming sessions, and the 'dreaming' of endless possibilities.
Many people will spend most of their startup time talking about how cool their ideas are. And yes, in a way, most of them are also seeking for validation.
The discouragement starts when the people they talk to don't share the same excitement. At this point, some will quit without even trying. But that's not even the hard part.
The hard part is doing the real work. It's translating ideas into actual products or services. It's raising or saving enough money for the venture.
Designing a product is fun. Launching a product that people are willing to pay for is another thing.
It's exciting to close your first sale or customer. It's a challenge or a struggle to breakeven or to hit profitability.
Starting a business is an adventure. It's fun, exciting, and yes, it's not easy. If you are starting one, make sure to anticipate and prepare for both sides of the story.
Having great ideas doesn't make you an entrepreneur. Doing the hart part will.
In many situations, you can only control your actions, but not the results. You don't need to push too far. Your job is to hope, to believe, and to do your best. Be faithful with the task at hand.
God is faithful. He keeps his promises. At the proper time, He will only give His best!
Your perspective or views will change as you grow old and mature. But your priority should remain the same – to love God and one another. The greatest achievement (or ambition) that you can pursue is to lead others to do the same.
How to win the respect of others:
1. Live a quiet life
2. Mind or take care of your own business
3. Work with your own hands
(see 1 Thes 4:9–12)
Don't confuse "waiting time" for wasted time.
If you've been put into a position to wait, you might as well make the most out of it.
Build meaningful relationships. Learn a new skill. Pray for clarity and direction.
Every season has its own purpose. Even if you don't see anything, there's always something happening.
You can lead by example when you preach what you practice.
The most frustrating experience as a customer...
Your service provider causes inconvenience because of their inefficiency, but lets you pay for it anyway.
Lesson for entrepreneurs:
1. Own the problem
2. Provide a solution
3. Compensate for the hassle
Many will do #1. But if you're wise enough, you won't stop there.
