Financial Services Consultant
Growing up, I was blessed to come from a very financially stable family.
My 2 older brothers and I were provided with a comfortable life, where we did not have to worry about our education and could afford to go on family holidays easily. Thus, I rarely felt I lack much in life.
Complacency thus led me to face my first setback in my academics, where I was placed bottom few in the cohort. Seeing the disappointed look on my form teacher, as well as my parents, really made me reflect on myself.
I realised that I did not want to see that look on their face, and I did not want to disappoint myself further with my results. This woke me up to work hard in everything I do.
This experience also served as a constant reminder to always stay motivated and constantly excel to surpass my own expectations. Since then, I have always challenged myself, setting high expectations to achieve.
The Financial Planning industry was something I never exposed myself to until my University days, where I was approached by Reuben to find out more. It was also an industry I never foresee myself joining, due to the negative stigma that society has about this industry.
However, I took it as a challenge to myself to step out of my comfort zone and change this stigma that society has, hence joining Odyssey.
Through learning from my mentors, Kevin, and Reuben, I began to understand the importance of proper financial planning, and how we should all start planning for it today.
Therefore, it is our job as Financial consultants to be the guide for people we care for, to share and educate the importance of Financial Planning.
Through Odyssey, I was able to spread the knowledge of Financial Planning to many of my friends whom I care for, to encourage them to start planning for their future in the long run.
It delights me to hear that friends I approached took away some key learning points from our sessions together, and pushes me to work harder for them.
I am very grateful to my mentors, Kevin, and Reuben, for bringing me on board this industry and improving on my financial literacy and presentation skills.
This industry also resonates with my constant need for growth and achievement, to surpass my own expectations. Thus, I am confident that I can share the importance of financial planning to my family and friends.
My goal is to be the financial guide to people around me, to educate the importance of financial planning, and ensure that they are well protected and able to live their life to the fullest.
Financial Services Consultant
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.
