People call me Ken. I am the founder of an options mastery program that empowers thousands of people to financial freedom. I own a local company that manufactures world-class trophies, and an investment company in the UK. I am also an inspirational blogger who has been reaching out to thousands of people since 2014.
My portfolio is pretty diversified. I draw inspirations from successful people, and I realize that they all have one thing in common—a diversified portfolio that is a great defense in case your investment thesis goes wrong.
I'm currently invested in an infrastructure project that builds sewage pipes, cabling, etc., on pieces of land before they are handed over to developers. I also invest in real estate and pension-grade investment products in the UK, as well as stocks and bonds all over the world. Recently, I also began investing in treasury bills.
It's important to choose your investment wisely. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
For most of my life, I didn’t do well academically. I only passed my Chinese language course during my PSLE. I dropped out of the express stream, failed my polytechnic course, and had to re-enter the polytechnic to start again. I shoplifted, I gambled away 10 grand during my tertiary studies—a huge sum when I was receiving a three-dollar daily allowance.
But through the pains of growing up, the many life lessons I learned, and the love of my family, I learned a very important lesson: You are the average of the people around you.
If you mix around with people who complain about life, you will not go very far.
If you mix around with people who want more out of life, who are willing to make sacrifices to attain their goals, you will grow together with them.
I simply stopped doing what an average person does. If you do average things, you will get average results.
