Hi! I am Michael Zhan.I created Web 2.0 and digital media interfaces for many financial companies and also help them form and maintain relations with the other companies that tie up with the credit card companies to launch many promotions and other offers. The main reason I decided to have my own business is because I wanted the experience and skills early. I started off on our own without funding from investors. We pooled $10,000 from our own savings, friends and family. We did not knew that we need $100,000. Then, we had to pool in again. I wanted to make sure that I make the most of my abilities and contribute by doing more and wanted a difference experience. It was when that I decided to strike out on my own. The worst I have developed a patience and confidence. We are clear about what we have to deliver to the client. We are driven and are flexible to the client’s needs. To me, a secret in making a successful business is the team. The team is the most important determining factor of how a successful business gets. The value and vision of that team are the things that determine success for the business. My definition of entrepreneurship is that we have to bring something new to the table. This is what sets an entrepreneurship apart from businessman. I want people to look at what the company stands for and contribute towards the values that the company has. Success is a big part of it but without a certain character of the company, it is very difficult to fall back on the important values while taking decisions.
Hello. I am Adrian Lee.I created the company VibrantStyle. I helped to establish itself as a credible enterprise, providing valued added business solutions to other companies through creative marketing. VibrantStyle have different aims in our approach to clients. It is a business solutions company. I embark on this venture choice as I have been a “web person” since 1997. I have always loved the internet for what it is and find it really amazing. I started of the company with half of the initial company was provided by my mother, and the other half from my personal savings. After the company kicked off, I wondered if the company would be able to sustain for 6 months. The things that I have had to overcome to succeed was going about generating sales for the company. I realised that one must be able to see more money inflow than outflow for the business to work. I dont lament about comprising situations or problems as being what they are. To me, I think that one must not be fearful of failure to succeed. One must also persevere in what they do. My definition of entrepreneurship is that we must view passion and the belief in what one does.You must not stop at it, but keep learning about your business. To the younger generation, I think that integrity is very important other than passion. Like this, we would be responsible to other people. So, everyone please be persevere in what ever you do and be creative!

Hi, I am Jean YipI run 47 Jean Yip branches in Singapore and Malaysia and the services include hairdressing salon and beauty and slimming business. Recently there has been something new included into the family-the Academy- it is a place that teaches my staff and it is used for future expansion purposes. My interest for hairdressing started when I was very young and during the period while waiting for my 'O' Level results, I took a 9 month long course in hairdressing administered by the Supreme School of Hairdressing, attracted by a free overseas course component at the end of the training. Fortunately, my father realised my passion for hairdressing and told me to go to the best school in London for training. The best school then was Allan International. I stayed on to have additional courses after learning my basics in that school so as to experience the different techniques used by biggest names in business such as Jingle International, Vidal Sassoon and Morris International. Unfortunately, in order to be able to have more income due to the expensive school fees and accommodation, I took up a part-time job, so i studied during the day and worked at night. I did so for 1 1/2 years of 14 hour days.This helped me to build my stamina and determination to succeed in what i am doing. When i came back to Singapore, I worked at my father's company for 5 years before trying to start my own business. I want more innovation and improvement, thus I had a vision of greater thing in the hair industry. I started my first store in Katong Plaza and soon opened another due to the great response in the first store. 2 years later I opened another store in Parkway Parade, which built our solid reputation. After that, we were invited to open more branches and soon we'll be opening our 48th branch.My advice on budding entrepreneurs, Hard work, integrity, a lot of passion and fire, and calculated risks that still has growth. Lastly, do something that you are interested in, not because of the money.
i possess Communication, Critical Thinking, Courage, Cross-Cultural Understanding, Citizenship & Ethics, Creativity, Intellectual Curiosity.I have demonstrated critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, courage and intellectual curiosityI still lack confidence,commitment and collaboration.To be a good leader, i need to be confident and the one of the school's aim is to make all the students to be global leaders but if we are not confident, how will we lead? Commitment is one thing which is very important in any type of work.If one is not committed to the work, the person would not complete any task and that is one thing which i think i am lackingCollaboration is very important in group work and since group work is one very important part in fulfilling the school's vision, the skill of collaborating is important.it will be also useful in the "real world" when we have to do work with other colleagues.
I have Commitment, Curiosity, Collaboration, Courage, Communication.I demonstrated Commitment, Curiosity, Collaboration and Critical Thinking.I need to develop Confidence and Commitment.I'm more of a talkative person, but I keep my mouth shut when I am around strangers. It is only when I get to know them better that I start talking. Sometimes, i neglect my homework or lose concentration when I am doing it. I seem to be confident and open, but asking me to stand on stage or in front of the class can be a bit of a problem.

I have:Critical ThinkingCommitmentCourageCollaborationIntellectual CuriosityCommunicationCross-Cultural UnderstandingCitizenship & EthicsI have demonstrated:CommitmentCollaborationCommunicationCritical ThinkingI need to develop:ConfidenceCreativityReasoning: I always have a shy personality, therefore, I do not have much confidence in myself when doing a presentation or voicing out my opinions. Only after knowing everyone for a longer period of time, I would then be able to communicate with others and can co-operate with them better. However, by then, I would become very talkative. I often do not generate ideas thoroughly, which is why I always cannot come up with creative suggestions.
Hello, I am Benny Chua.I started up my own business, Chocz which I transformed from a retail store into a chocolate cafe which allows take away and dine in experience. Whenever I see my customers happy, I am spurred to go an extra mile to serve them better.From my perspective, passion is one of the elements that will drive you to work harder and that diligence is important too. You must also work doubly hard to solve problems and cannot expect things to work out on their own.Even though I have faced many obstacles, I have never thought of giving up the business. In my opinion, operations which bore you down or the business not being as smooth sailing as expected are all part and parcel of business and these ups and downs you experience will make you stronger and able to face more challenges in the future. You should also try to treat downturns as lessons to build a better tomorrow.When I first started my retail outlet in the shopping mall, I divided my potential customers into different sub-groups, allowing me to know my customers and to bring in the right products which suits the customers' needs.I have also been careful in trying to expand my business. Since my market has spread to Malaysia, I decided to stay in Malaysia for a while to grow the market there and will only move on to other countries when I being able to manage my business in Malaysia well. I also will not try to expand the business blindly and over commit myself when I am not able to deliver.Therefore, we should all face things positively and do not treat downturns and failures as we will not be able to learn from them.

If I had, I believe that I would have been working better with my teammates. I hope I could improve more on these points in Term 2. :D
I think I have demonstrated Communication, Critical Thinking, Confidence, Courage, Cross-Cultural Understanding, Citizenship & Ethnicity, Intellectual Curiosity and Commitment.I still lack Creativity and Collaboration.Creativity is important as it gives us innovative and original ideas when doing something, i.e group work or group discussion.

Hi, I am Evelyn BrunnerI run the Fun Factory Games company and my company designs and publishes board games. Our current key markets are the US and Europe. Our company would pursue Asia more aggressively with time. I always had a passion for Euro-style board games and for years my business partners and i had been talking about producing our games and one day, we decided to stop talking about it and start acting to fulfill our dreams.Our business works by us starting to think of a idea and then developing the game and when this is done, we test it, gathering feedback and perfecting the game.After this is done, i then create the artwork for the pieces. After the completion of this, the game is sent for manufacturing and it is then shipped to the US and Europe retailers.My business partners and I pooled all our savings together to start the business and i think that i was inspired by my parents who courageously started a business despite having a entire family to support.Some challenges one may face when staring a new business is limited manpower, limited money, limited time to explore all the opportunities and competing against other experienced companies in the market The advice i would give to young people who want to start a new business is that plan carefully and critically assess if your business idea is feasible;make sure that there is enough initial money saved up so that there will be money for unexpected expensesTo succeed in business, the essential qualities are the courage to venture into the unknown, the willingness to listen to the advice of others, Recognizing and addressing your personal weakness so that they do not affect your businessFinally, i would say that it is important to do things that you enjoy doing!
