Media Coverage in My Paper

My Paper

(Posted on Mar 27, 2009)

I’ve been featured in My Paper today! :) For the non-Singaporean readers, My Paper is a free Singapore bilingual paper. It is distributed in local train stations every morning, with a circulation of approx 300,000. It also has an electronic version available at its website.

The article features how I made the decision to pursue my passion over money, the personal development work I do at Embrace Living, and my views on personal development in Singapore. Overall I’m really happy with the article and the journalist did a really great job. (If you’re reading this, thanks Jingting! And thanks Jamie for being such an excellent photographer to work with!) To add on to the article, my current client profile span from 20s to late 30s in age and include people from other countries.

* Note on Oct 2011: Embrace Living was the old name of my site for the first six months. I’ve since renamed it to Personal Excellence.

Unfortunately they didn’t feature the site URL probably due to internal policies. It seems like quite a number of the readers have found the site regardless through Google/Facebook search so all’s good. :D So far I’ve been getting a spike in mail including general queries, coaching requests, speaking opportunities etc on top of the regular inflow. If you have sent me a message/email, I’ll get to you very soon!

Here’s the article for those who aren’t living in Singapore or didn’t manage to catch the paper today. To everyone new here, welcome! :D You can read more about me in my About page. Please check out the good archive of over 60+ free personal development articles in Reader Favorites page. Meanwhile, do feel free to share this site with your friends as well!

Oh and the room where this picture was taken in is my room :)

* Update Aug 2010: Due to SPH copyright clauses, I have removed the article.

The article has also been featured in AsiaOne Business Section and Showbiz OMY News!

PS: I’m really psyched cause I just secured four upcoming talks with National Library Board. Thanks Nurul! :D
