I love interviewing people from all walks of life. So when Aishah asked if she can interview me, of course, I jumped at the chance! Come on, who doesn’t like blabbing about herself? Just kidding.
Below is some of the extracts from the interview. You can read more about it here.
Once again, Aishah thank you for having me on your blog. It was a wonderful experience!
There are no typical workdays for me. Whether I am a career woman leading a team of 50 or a freelancer copywriting for a start-up, my schedule is very fluid. I love challenging myself and I juggle plenty on my plate.
I have been in the corporate world for more than 20 years and I have seen coworkers and friends making bad decisions in their careers that in turn, affect their personal lives as well. We spend more than 40 hours at work every week, some of us even exceed 80 hours in the office. So if you are not happy doing what you are doing, not pursuing your passion aggressively, you are actually wasting precious time on something you don’t believe in.
There are plenty of media giving attention to personal abuse but when it comes to workplace abuse, discrimination and bullying, it gets buried under piles of lawsuits.
“Wouldn’t it be more productive if I can record what I have just advised and share it out so I don’t have to say it again?”
We all want to be THAT travel blogger so what is it that makes you stand out from the 10,000 travel bloggers? Why do someone has to read your article? Or follow you?
Many of the articles I found in Time, Forbes even Inc.com are great but sometimes they are too difficult or too long for the masses to comprehend / digest. Many of my team members and coworkers are not native English readers hence big words knock them off.
Everyone has a story to tell, it is whether you listen hard enough. These stories often inspire new ideas. And of course, the encouragement and support from my readers never fail to push me to write better articles.
