The Story of Me (I) : No-One Special

A dunce then, and still a dunce now

This is a blog about my dreams and the bumpy road to make them a reality.

I'm an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life. I haven't been gifted with extraordinary drive or focus. I'm not a genius. I don't have access to a million-dollar trust fund. I don't have any particular talent or skill. I've never had a calling to do anything. My parents aren't self-made gajillionaires that mentor me. I have no ties to Ong Beng Seng.

I'm no-one special.

But I hope. I believe. I reach.
I also doubt. I fear. I fail.

I've read countless books on starting a business - but for some reason, it always seemed as though the entrepreneurs already had a clue to begin with. Or endless pits of money. Or an MBA. Or endless energy. Or were fantastic salesman that never stayed down...but how do ordinary people do it??? Correction - how do ordinary people full of doubt and fear of the unknown do it?

So I wanted to chart my progress - my successes, my failures, my learnings - to encourage you, aspiring entrepreneur, and also to share my resources and ideas. And whether I succeed in this venture or fail miserably, or never get it off the's proof I tried.

But first gather around, children. Let me tell you a little about me and the long, winding road I took to arrive at today.
