The reason why I suck!

Because it tastes better.

No, really!

Except alcoholic drinks. Maybe.

This is why they want your email

First, read this article below; but don't inhale!

The smarter ones who attended all those courses on how to achieve passive income through blogging, internet marketing, writing apps, trading, investing, and what not; have wised up to the secret on how money is really made.

No, its not selling products or affiliated marketing silly!

It's to do what your trainer do - teach others how to make money!

As a former snake oil, when I see wannebe commercial "bloggers" trying their hardest to write click-bait posts to generate page views or give away freebies to collect emails, I often feel like telling them, "Hello, maybe it's better to do what your guru do; not what he tells you to do?"

I guess I can't hold my tongue any longer...

Psst. For those who made the switch and start making real money, don't forget to buy me a drink OK!?

Who knows? If you interested to learn more about selling ice to Eskimos, I have a DVD box set for a low low price of $XXXX. If you buy today, I'll even throw in not one, but two free e-books on Jedi mind tricks 101 to use on "bei kambings" that's worth a combined value of $XXX.

What are you waiting for?

Pick up the phone now!

C'mon, you know the first rule of investing! (Part 2 of 2)

What motivated you to start your investing journey in the first place?

It's definitely not for world peace, your desire to give back to society, financial freedom to do what you want, or any other euphemisms...

You know it; I know it.

What's the first rule of investing?

It's to make MONEY.


Now look at your portfolio.

Is this what you had planned?

What happened to your goal settings?

I know. I used to have an investing plan too when I started out. That flew out the window the moment I got punched in the face...

The one who punched me was called the Nasdaq crash 2000. He is also known as crash.

How did you let it happen? You must be asking yourself.

Now you are in a bigger hole than those "financially illiterate" friends of yours whom you have lamented and shook your head at in the past.

You rather avoid them now. That's because even you don't believe the bullshit you tell yourself - My investing goal now is to break even in X years???

Does it sound familiar?

Yup, whole life insurance breaks even in 20 years.

I bet you wouldn't be saying, "Buy term; invest the rest" anytime soon.

Not when your investing track record is looking a lot like whole life insurance...

Now you can better appreciate the wisdom of Warren Buffett and his investing rules no. 1 and no. 2.

You're welcomed.

What's the first rule of investing again? (Part 1 of 2)

I tell you, the majority of retail investors out there can parrot the correct answer.

And they can even throw in rule no. 2 for added effect!

However, the reality is most of them never listened to Warren Buffett; know how to quote only (someone should tell them that upon leaving school, quoting other people does not carry any brownie points like in tests or exams).

Don't believe?

Just open up your portfolio.   

Remember this next time you want to impress others with your favourite Warren Buffett quotes...

If you never put into practice rules 1 and 2, how to convince others with a straight face you are a practicing acolyte of Warren Buffett?

While you are reflecting, you might want to verify whether Warren Buffett ever lost money in investing?

If he did, what to make of his "advice" to us?

Don't look at me... I'm not his fan. The only thing I have in common with him is that we both like our Coke. Wait a minute... Do I have Coke in my portfolio?

My son is here! Enjoy your food.

Petronas have some of the best and heart warming commercials.

This one I like a lot.

Don't you just love the Malaysian accents?

That's how you tell a Singaporean from a Malaysian overseas. From the moment we said, "Hello!" 

Success, when denominated in $ can easily be benchmarked, do an one-upmanship over others; but when it's measured by how well you have brought up your children...

Children learn from parents.

Financial freedom is just an enabler. It's not supposed to be a "religion".

Do you worship Money?

Or do you let money work for you?

Same same but different!

How do you make God laugh?

How do you make God laugh?

Tell him about your plans.
