In my previous life, I worked as a financial consultant in Singapore. The work bored me and so to dull the pain, I travelled as much as I could. One morning, I just couldn't take it anymore and I quit. I then volunteered in Guyana, backpacked around the world and finally decided to follow my passion - travel.
I started my first business with a grand sum of $10,000. The rest, as they say, is history..
Having successfully automated my business, I am currently focussing on expanding my business knowledge while completing an MBA at Columbia Business School in NYC.
