Don’t focus on the things you suck in!

I know it is not what you are used to hearing. But, I am here to tell you .. the more you focus on the things that you suck at and less time you have to focus on the things that naturally make you awesome and valuable.

Thinking back on my own history, I grew up in Singapore and I wasn’t a very good student. Actually, I wasn’t good in one specific class; Math. Unfortunately for me, that was the MOST important class for my parents and not being good in Math for them meant, I sucked in EVERYTHING.

The thing is, I spent most of my teen years focusing on JUST BEING good in Math while it was the one subject I sucked at it. My point is, no matter how I tried, I wasn’t going to be the best but everyone made me feel like it’s the ONE thing I must be good at and I continued try really hard. During this time, I didn’t focus much on topics and skills that make me naturally good. I would love to focus on music, art, drama .. I also love to read and didn’t do much reading.

Being an entrepreneur, I really had to work on the skills like presentations, critical thinking, customer service and leadership. These had nothing to do with Math and while I did learn basic accounting to help me run my business, not being good in math and choosing to suck at it, made it possible for me to build on the skills that make me successful every day!

Got an award for my work with Ryerson…

I was recently awarded Ryerson’s Alumni Achievement Award. It was an incredible honor to receive it and also have my entire family with me when accepting it.

Growing up, I was always scared that my life won’t have any impact on the world and that really bothered me. I want to help and serve others, in helping them overcome their personal obstacles.

This award is a sign that I am living my purpose.

Award-winning agency BlueBand Brand + Digital celebrates 10 years.

“Reaching the 10-year mark with a strong name in this fast-paced industry is definitely something to celebrate,” says Bala.  “From our growing client portfolio to the launch of our ethnic division, Blue Dot we have a lot to be excited about and are more motivated than ever to continue this growth and innovation”, he adds.

Find your purpose

If it's all the same to you
Then let me shine for a minute
Why play small
When being big makes a difference

The end will be worth it
And all the scars will make it legit
Only if
The reason you took all them hits
Started with a purpose

Boys afternoon.

I am realizing how important my time with Shak is. It's for him but also for me. Growing up with an absent father impacted me in my teenage days and well into adulthood.

In hustling to build a life of wealth for myself and my family, I sometimes forget how important my time with the kids is. Something money can never buy.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.
