The New Year

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

My million dollars goal will continue this year with brand new idea and brand new direction - so stay tune! =)

The complain

How far will you go to make sure you don't get rip off?

For me - I complain

Last week our department didn't get pay on time because of the delay in  putting the time sheet in to HR, and I happened to have bill to pay, because of that, I have a bank overdraft , and the bank charge me $35 for dishonor fee.

In the past, I would just let it be because I know "shit" happened, but not this time, straight away , I call them up - of course an Indian guy pick up that can't speak English very well, and so I take this advantage - I started to complain non-stop

The conversation last about 20 minute ( you might think 20 minute? it will cost more in the phone bill than getting your money back, well, I use company phone, so is still free ) and below are some of the high light of our conversation

Indian: How can I help you

Me: The bank charge me $35 dishonor fee which  I don't think I deserve to pay.

Indian: There is nothing we can do here, because you don't have enough money in your bank and you have set up the automatic monthly payment with your phone company.

Me: I don't care! Remember I am the customer here!! This is not my fault, I didn't ask my phone company take the money out ( obviously I am playing dumb ) plus the bank has get back his money anyway!

Indian: Sir, I understand, but you should call  your phone company to talk about this.

Me: The phone company didn't take my money, is the bank who take the money! Why should I call the phone  company?

Indian: I can't do anything with your enquiries here.

Me: I am not enquiries anything here! I demand for my money back! I want to talk to your manager or your supervisor.

Indian: OK sir, I will give you the number....

Me: (He didn't even have the chance to finish his sentence) No way I am making another call.

Indian: Can you wait for moment please.

Me: OK

After few minute ...

Indian: OK sir, this time I will not charge you for the dishonour fee, but please make sure you talk to your phone company not to do the direct debit anymore.

Me: Sure

Mission complete! I got my money back ~ he he ~

The high achiever

Who is likely going to be successful ?

 - The person who know how to turn an idea into action
 - The person who will never ever give up so easily
 - The person who doesn't scare of hard work
 - The person who has a plan and a clear direction
 - The person who has a good heart, maybe you will think that I am very naive but I still think only good people will get happy ending!

Who is the person?

He is Ronald Chang

Why him?

Having a full time job as a consultant, he also do couching 3 days a week and more over he has recently started his own business that run 7 days a week.

I have read a lot of story and book about the successful people, and Ronald Chang is a real life example for me and I wish him all the best and success in the future!

That dude in the middle is Ronald Chang

The Winning

Everyone said " there is no such thing call free lunch "

I said " there are, when you are lucky "

The easiest way to make some extra cash without putting too much effort is to join the competition!  What you got to lose when you don't win it? Few minute to fill in the form?

Note:  When you enter some competition, don't just enter whatever!

Some competition I try before:

  • Fitness first new you achievement - winner will get $30K ( unfortunately I didn't win ~ Damn! )

  • 25 word or less to tell me why you need to win this BlackBerry Pearl 3G phone, the most convincing entry will win - My answer: because my phone is more than 10 years old now and I need a phone desperately, please, let me win this! I will name my first child after you! Please Please Please Please ( Obviously that is a lie ~ my real answer are: If I win this phone, I can sell the phone to make extra cash! ) but the editor obviously doesn't like my first child name after him ~ because I didn't win the price ~ Damn again!
Anyway, it doesn't hurt me not to win anything but it does make me feel good if I win something ~

This morning! I received a call - Hi Sam, I am calling from secret recipe to inform you that you have win $100 food voucher ~ ( I actually enter the competition for the motorbike , but hey, $100 wasn't too bad yea! )

So people ~ feel free to join any competition, you never know who is going to call you later !! Good luck ^^

The Business Plan

I think everyone should have realize by now if they have been following my blog - working for other people will never ever get you anywhere.

Exception do happened, some job do make you rich. For example: Hollywood super star, famous singer and song writer, CEO of a big company etc, but be realistic, how many of us can be one of that?

One of the job that I wanted to highlight in this post is - writer.

You can spent 8 hours a day and 5 days a week working in a office and earn an average of $20 an hours, or you  can spent the same amount of time trying to write something and publish it. All you need is to write one times and print a thousand copy and sell it to thousand people, average $20 per copy will make you $20,000. If you are really good, you might sell more than a thousand copy and maybe more that $20 too, imagine that.

Well, you might think if is that easy, why don't I do it or why don't a lot of people do it. The fact is, it is not that easy, or maybe it is easy but we are just being lazy. How rich is that boring stay home mum now who dream about vampire and turn them into story, and not to mention about the author of the Harry Potter.

Always remember where there's a will there's a way!

Why am I tell you this? Even i haven't publish a book yet myself but I am sort of experiencing it - The Business Plan

On 14 September I sell my first copy of business plan check out -  The update...Again

Since then I have sold another copy on 10 Oct and today someone rang me and saying they are interested in getting it, can you imagine that? that was just my home home work that I did for my course, and I have made $60 dollar from it. 

Start writing people, you never know what you might come out with ~ good luck! :)
