Guest Bio:

I left school at 16, with no network and no idea what I would do. I just knew I couldn’t keep going through the motions anymore. I had to forge my own path. So I left school, and started living the life I wanted to, on my terms.

It was extremely scary, but I did it anyway. And I’m pretty happy with the results.

Some of the things I’ve done that I’ve most proud of include:

-Completing a virtual internship with Seth Godin -Being one of the first 100 graduates of Seth Godin’s altMBA program -Traveling to 10 countries in two years -Playing in professional poker tournaments against some of my favorite celebrity players -Co-organizing the Social Media Breakfast | Singapore -Participating in the StartupBus 2011 -Contributing to the Age of Conversation 2 -Starting Thousand True Fans, a marketing agency where we worked with brands like QuickBooks Asia and ONI Global

Now, I work with disenchanted, restless 9-to-5 white collar office workers, and help them get on the path towards pursuing their passions and building a life on their terms.
