The Greatest Moment of My Life: A Grocery Store in Singapore

Jul 13, 2020
 

Hey, I was just sitting here thinking about the whole concept of what was the greatest moment of my life?

It's so funny because I had so many great moments, but I mean, I had a lot of bad moments too, but I had so many great moments. I thought about the first great moment I had in my life was when I say great, I mean, super great was I was actually in Singapore. I was 32-years-old. I was single for 10 years and I was walking in a grocery store in Singapore after work. Not that I knew what to do in this grocery store because I didn't cook.

I was in this grocery store and I thought about, I was walking through and I thought about, wow, I've been single for 10 years. I have the most amazing...

How Rejection Became My Friend

Jul 06, 2020
 

Hey. I'm going to talk a little bit about rejection today. I'm going to tell you the funniest story of my first public embarrassment moment. You see, I'm a really proud person, and I grew up really proud, and really dreamy about being successful, being big, being everything.

Then I remember I was told from a very young age to don't cause trouble, to not cause trouble because every time I speak, and I speak my mind, my parents had a fear that I would offend people all the time, so I was told not to cause trouble. Well, of course that made me really angry during my teenage years, and by the age of 23 I said, "You know what? I'm going to go and start over my life in a place where no one...

I'm NOT judgemental, but I did learn how to judge myself.

Hey, everyone. I want to talk a little bit about the word judgment.

It's so hilarious because I had a conversation with a friend of mine today, this morning, and she was just going on and on about, you know, not feeling like she's aligned or she's just feeling so sad or depressed or angry with herself because, you know, she wasn't achieving what she wanted to, but then she couldn't tell me what is it that she couldn't achieve, and I remember it just brought me back to my days growing up when I was really young and I just wanted to be the best of everything, you know, and I was hyper competitive and I just drove myself to being the best of the best. It became very competitive and I would...

How I became the Queen Networker of Hong Kong

Jun 26, 2020
 

Hey guys, here's a story that I'm going to tell you about how to succeed in an environment where you have no experience, right?

I remember when I went to Hong Kong, I was about 23 years old and everybody was telling me there's no way I can make it there because I don't have a university degree. I don't have any work experience in terms of the business world and I don't speak the language.

Of course me, I don't care what anybody says. It's fine. They think it's impossible. So I thought, well, if it's going to be impossible, I'm just going to go and figure it out and try to see whether it is impossible or not. So I actually left with a girlfriend of mine and after three weeks, when we ran...

Have you ever lost sense of who you are in a relationship?

Jun 23, 2020
 

Have you ever lost sense of who you are and what you even want any more?

Well, that happened to me in my first relationship. I was in a relationship for nine years. And for the first two years it was great, because everything was new. We were getting to know each other.

But on the second year I realized, "Oh my gosh, we don't even want the same things in life, in terms of our ultimate goals." I wanted big, I wanted grand, I wanted freedom. I wanted success on the biggest levels. He wanted success too, but not on that grand level. He liked to be small. He liked to stay small. That's where his comfort is.

There's nothing wrong with that. What was wrong was that I couldn't leave because I...

When I got WAY too comfortable in a sexless life being HAPPY

Jun 19, 2020
 

Hey, everyone. I want to talk today about being single. What it means to be single and how it feels to be single. In my 20s, I was single for literally 10 years in Asia. Believe me, that is hyper Sex in The City single, right? Where it's like active going out, meeting people all the time, bars, restaurants. It's like that type of high life.

But you know what? The crazy thing is 10 years, I really lost sense of what it is to even be with somebody anymore. It was man after man. I met dozens of men, dated dozens of men. It comes to the point, it's like, "Oh my gosh. It's never going to happen." It crosses our mind, right, that it's never going to happen. But one of the things that I've...

The moment I realized I needed to go back to school

Jun 17, 2020
 

Hey! I just want to talk a little bit about my thoughts about education.

From a very young age I was told to not speak up, not to voice my thoughts, not to exert my power. I was told to stay under the radar. Since I was born to want more, I was born to want to be big and loud, I became really angry. Super angry. I fought everything that was imposed upon me: rules, regulations, instructions, culture. I fought every system structure. I basically went haywire in my teenage years.

When it comes to school, I graduated from high school, I went into college, and I swear to god, I went to school every day, 4:30, but I played cards every day because I hated to have to stick to a structure or...

When I went up to 192 lbs and why

Jun 16, 2020
 

Have you ever had self-image issues, or have you ever been so self conscious that you are so worried about what other people might see in you or think of you that you can't even look in the mirror and be happy with what you see? 

I started suffering from self image issues from the age of 14 and that was my first year of dieting, which sent me into a downhill spiral with the most awful relationship with food and body for the next 20 years.

I started dieting and exercising from a very young age and not once did I ever lose weight. The only time I lost weight was when I actually had the motivation to impress a boy. It's nuts, isn't it? That we actually don't make decisions that are...

Brené Brown, one of our favorite contemporary scholars, indulges in the curiosities of the human experience and its darker corners. It is in these spaces where the unspoken/shameful rests, secretly impacting our every day and our ability to navigate through life. Her mission, much like ours, is to create a space of empowerment, through the recognition of our flawed existence. One of the concepts she highlights is the idea of a “vulnerability hangover,” and we are digging in, to explore more about this.

7 Success Principles in Love & Dating

Jan 02, 2020

1.   Be specific in what you are looking for – Like any business, in life you shouldn’t go into something without a vision and a goal. Love is no different. Without a vision, you are heading out blindfolded. Without a goal, there is no strategy. It is for this reason that so much precious time can be wasted in one’s journey in search of love. People wrongly view love as a separate pillar in life along with other pillars like career and friendships, but really love is not a separate pillar. In fact, it is part of the foundation of all those pillars. So allow yourself to start enjoying the creation of your ideal love story...
