I Found My Calling. Eureka!

by Patrick Liew on August 25, 2015

It’s a great honour to share with another group of “hungry” learners on a pro bono basis.
I’m glad to exchange ideas with them on how to create wealth and use it to bless others.

I’m thankful to our Creator for giving me the opportunity to learn and share about financial investment for more than 30 years.

Since a young age, I learned the importance of effective investment. When I was in Primary School, I had to run a stall at Sungei Road to earn enough money to stay afloat.

After graduation, I was one of the pioneers for promoting infocomm systems to help facilitate financial investments. I was actively involved in educating the financial market, including most of the banks, financial institutions, and top investors on how to use cutting-edge investment tools.

Subsequently, I headed the regional office of a business think tank. We helped governments, banks, and MNCs to grow their organization and maximise their returns.
As a founder of arguably the world’s largest seminar organizer, we were among the first companies to provide financial literacy and investment education to the mass market. We were among the firsts to teach consumers on how to use, for example, technical analysis tools to improve their investment results.

Subsequently, with more than 10,000 people working with me in my previous business, I continued my study on how the rich became rich, and how the successful achieve their dreams and goals.

Month after month, I could analyse thousands of real-life transactions.

Born with a “weird” mind, I saw trends and patterns. I discovered causalities and correlations, many of which I could not find in any book, training, educational institution, workplace, and other sources of information.

I tested many of my proprietary models, strategies, and tactics on financial investment. Together with astute investors, we leveraged on these findings and have experienced great results.

A public-listed investment firm even paid me thousands of dollars to share my property investment expertise in its training programmes.
I also went back to the University and became one of the first persons to craft a doctoral dissertation on financial intelligence, the foundation to become rich and wealthy.

In essence, financial intelligence is about how to help you earn, save, spend, invest, grow, protect, and give away your wealth.

Our Creator has given me the gift to find practical ways to invest and create wealth.

He gave me the talents to organise and communicate these ways in a simple way. Make it easy for ordinary person to understand and leverage on them in the real world.

Over the years, I’m happy that I have coached and mentored many people to become successful leaders, entrepreneurs, trainers, and movers and shakers of the industry.

Many have become rich and successful beyond their expectation.

I had the chance to keynote many international conferences and taught students from all over the world.
I made it a point to give my students a great learning “fun”perience. I worked hard and smart to give them an educational, entertaining, and enriching time.

There are lots of good belly laughs while learning a “dry” but highly critical and vital discipline that can help you and your loved ones live a much better life.,

More importantly, what thrills my heart is seeing some of my students give back to society. They donate their thoughts, time, talents, and treasure, including money – generously, happily, and consistently to support a worthwhile cause.

I am glad I don’t have to teach so as to survive and provide for my family.

I do it because I love to do it and not because I have to do it.

I’m grateful that I don’t have to do it all the time and I can be involved in many other value-added activities to live a meaningful, balanced, and fulfilling life.

Pray for me to touch the students’ life and help them on their journey to achieve true freedom. May they become a blessing to the others and the environment.

Go4It!
I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

The Road To Financial Freedom

by Patrick Liew on August 25, 2015

I’m getting ready to speak to a group of passionate students who are hungry to learn about financial investment.
For the longest time, I’ve been providing such a service pro bono and as part of my contribution to society.

Since about two years ago, my friends organized these financial investment seminars for me. They told me that if the students don’t pay for the seminar, they’ll not be as committed and enthusiastic about learning and taking massive action.

I feel really bad about charging students for the learning experience.

With the small fees the organizer paid me, I started to hire one, then two, and then three executives and other part-time staff, and then eventually I had a small team to support the students.

This team operated from a small office to:

– organize ongoing trainings,

– provide regular updates,

– respond to questions about investment,

– arrange for experts and developers to teach the students,

– research and develop more materials,

– teach students how to manage their investment portfolio,

– organize a multi-speaker convention,

– and arrange further support and services for investment.
For all these additional services, we have not charge the students a single cent so far.

Therefore, there is no guarantee that we will continue to run the training. We may not provide the follow up services forever.

As an entrepreneur, I have to say this is not much of a business. A social enterprise perhaps?

Fortunately, I don’t have to teach for a living. I teach because I love to teach and not because I have to teach.

However, having said all that, I have to say that it has been a purposeful and fulfilling experience.

By being a teacher, mentor and coach, I have learned lots from the students and throughout this learning journey.

I trust our students are appreciative of what we are doing for them.

More importantly, if they are appreciative, they will take massive action to improve their financial position and achieve financial freedom.

In accordance with our understanding, they will happily and generously donate a part of their profit to a good cause.
In that way, we can make the world a better home.

Go4It!

I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
