As cliché as it sounds, I strongly believe in fate and life came full circle when fate brought me to Odyssey.
I count myself very blessed even though I did not come from a wealthy family.
I didn’t have to worry about my education and could always afford the things that I wanted growing up.
As the only child, I had all the love and devotion by my parents who would always do their best to make me happy.
This changed in 2016, when my family received the shocking news that my dad was being retrenched.
He was a Country Manager of a top Oil Field Company and it was his high salary that single handedly supported my mom and I for years.
It was heartbreaking to see him go around hunting for a job again and only being offered labour-intensive low paying jobs like delivery man due to his ‘O’ Level Certification.
I feared that my family would face huge financial difficulties in the future as I have yet to start my university studies, and my dad might not be able to sustain the family financially anymore.
Thankfully and to my surprise, my dad told me he had purchased multiple savings plans which were meant to pay for my tertiary education.
This amount of money was also enough to pay for the monthly expenses until I graduate.
From this incident, I have realised the importance of financial planning and the power it has to protect a family from unforeseen circumstances such as my dad’s retrenchment.
Without it we would have been left scrambling to get by.
This sparked my interest in financial planning as I wanted to be like my dad who provided so well for my family.
It was then when I happened to meet Odyssey through Marissa.
Her mindset on the importance of financial planning and passion in this industry really connected with me.
Through her, I realised that I can also play a part in helping people to protect their loved ones against unforeseen circumstances and to accumulate wealth for their future.
Therefore, when I decided to join Odyssey, my dream is to see every client with a smile on their face because of my passion and commitment in assisting them to make the right financial decisions.
I’m Glenn and let me guide you through your life’s adventure.
