I was given this book, The Bullettrain Entrepreneur by Peter Ong, because of being one of the 100 interviewees in the book; through the author’s friend, who is also my long-time friend since primary school.

I have read it and felt it deserve a review that urges me to write a post on it. It really stimulates my mind to embrace 4Bs; strengthening Belief; overcoming Barriers; pushing Boundaries and crossing Borders. We live in a fast pace of rapidly changing business world that demands us to deliver everlasting change from all stakeholders, being shareholders, customers; employees, regulators and societies as a whole. This book will provide you a sane, solid and sound framework in sustaining business growth and profitability – new competitive landscape for the new business world.

This book is well crafted with powerful proven illustrations encountered by all of us particularly in Malaysia and the world as a whole, which invite us to give it a serious consideration. Peter Ong does a magnificent and marvellous job for raising, nurturing and nourishing us to adopt and adapt more holistic approach in sustaining our business.

I must confess that I too subscribed to the (5 Ps) by the author i.e. Purpose, People, Process, Performance and Profit in building the foundation of my business model. Overcoming Barriers to gain strength in every aspect, be it physical, mental and spiritual. By shaping ourselves to be adept and to accept the new environment is the surest way of obtaining success. Keep learning, unlearn and relearn to navigate our personalized path to our pre-set destiny. What Peter did extraordinary well is using bullet train as a metaphor to emphasize the “secret” of success among SMEs and entrepreneurs actually comes from the alignment, balancing, and integration of 5 master pillars.

Peter Ong is a positive yet sensible author, illustrating with numerous compelling, convincing and convicting success stories by prominent business entrepreneurs worldwide. By doing so, we are able to see the entire scene through appropriate lens without being side tracked by the complication of the business process.

"TheBullettrain Entrepreneur" is a timely business book which dares to raise issues often neglected by majority of entrepreneurs. However, for those new and existing entrepreneurs who aspire to gain the highest, deepest and broadest perspective on how to sustain long term prosperity in the new world, then this book is right for you. It is not meant to persuade or dissuade you – it’s meant to inform, ingrain and inspire you in-gaining appropriate and broad perspectives so that you are much better prepared ahead.

I recommend you accept and follow the new solid foundation towards sustainability of business success as reflected in the title of the book.

To know more concisely and precisely, please pickup the book immediately and read it. Cheers and enjoy your reading.

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go FAR, go with others" 
- African Proverb 

Author and renowned speaker Robert Kiyosaki once said that the richest people in the world build networks and everyone else is trained to look for work. In the real world, this is very true.

Who wants to create wealth through networking? Who believes that effective resourceful networking will help you achieve something you would otherwise thought not possible?

For those who answered "Yes" to both of the questions; please accept my congratulations. You are taking your first step of reaping this fruit. Perhaps some of you here already achieved this or are on your journey towards this destination.

For those who are not, please lean back, relax and learn what I am going to share with you in a short while. Hope you will learn or pick up one or two ideas from this discussion.


The most fundamental question arises here is "What is networking?" Networking is the practice of making contacts and exchanging information with other people, groups or institutions. Usually, networking occurs with other people who have interests in similar areas. The goal of the networking relationship may be to further your personal and professional opportunities or to cultivate new clients or the expansion of business relationships. Thus, it enables you to do something collectively, collaboratively and effectively.  

Use Networking strategically, intelligently and wisely, it can form one of the main pillars to support both your career and business in numerous ways.

1.0 To stay ahead in this rapidly changing, competitive marketing environment, we need effective resourceful networking to keep abreast of the latest development of the industry we are in. There could be changes in human behaviour or the impact on our product or service arising from whatever changes in that particular industry. One excellent example is Ebook as compared to traditional book.

Permit me to share some of my blogging experiences with you. At one time, content was king. But it may not necessary be true in today's context. This is because people are looking for more than content. Today, they need exciting, refreshing and entertaining ideas as well. Due to the advancement of technology and social media platform, people need videos in digital form as well. Therefore, to stay ahead, you need to add varieties of forms to meet the everlasting demands of your audiences.

Moreover, we are fully aware that no one is good in everything and have everything. As such, we need to leverage on each other's skills, expertise and other resources which you do not have. That's where Networking comes into the picture.

2.0 To acquire new, creative, innovative and refreshing ideas to make your services or goods to stand out from the crowd. My experience tells me that networking is capable of fulfilling these needs. It is because it provides me with a rich platform where I can interact and tap others' brains to deliver those results, far better if not at least to fulfill my readers' expectation.

I also realized that lots of creativities and innovations is required and again, effective networking can discharge this duty far better than any other means.

3.0 To achieve faster outcome, you need to be able to maintain a strong and sufficiently large base of customers especially in regard to those high value customers. Networking is an unavoidable tool. It has the means and speed for you to do so especially on-line social networking media. No wonder this on-line networking is not only growing rampantly, but is also so vibrant and powerful, arising from the advancement of technology.

4.0 To stay competitive and relevant in the market, you need to upgrade yourself to be more efficient and effective. Here, you need to establish sound relationships with your counterparts, business associates, be it customers, suppliers, intermediaries and affiliates. You also need to be responsive and act speedily. Time is money. Networking especially on line, your correspondence with anyone, locally or internationally is just a few clicks away.

In addition, it is also able to keep us vigilant of latest development and changes in our industry by dropping emails with the relevant supporting photos to all the relevant parties and each party can read them at their convenient time. Similarly, each and everyone's feedback, thoughts and ideas can be gathered in a speedily manner. As a result, you are more effective and efficient. I must say that this form is the essence of the business. Best still, we can even integrate our management information system within as well with other external collaborated parties.

By doing so, you are opening your door for more and new projects and ideas, which could prove beneficial to your business.

5.0 Referrals

Another great benefit I have obtained through networking is referral. This is another excellent way of promoting a business, where new people outside your networking may approach you for your services and products, even if you do not take the initiative to approach them. Here, the law of attraction aids my marketing strategy without much effort and explanation on my part.

You are also able to use the affiliate programs to do your on-line networking. It is another way of advertising your products or services on those related websites. You may earn additional commission from those sales generated via your website. Alternatively, you may engage these programs to advertise your products and services. You may even use both these programs to earn and advertise your services. It has proved to be very effective and worthwhile.

Here, I want you to realise that it can move mountains if you do it correctly. Surprisingly that this social networking platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and etc...are quick, inexpensive and effective ways of communicating with people around the globe to establish and develop new business prospects.

Another fruitful way of networking is direct participation in community events or indirect participation through advertising your business at such events. These are useful especially if you want to create awareness amongst the participants and the community members. You may make good use of this opportunity by offering vouchers and discounts to the community to encourage them to visit your business or buy your products.

6.0 Another valuable benefit you may obtain via networking is manpower you are seeking for. This greatest asset can never be taken lightly in any business because they form the most valuable assets of your business.

To build an edge for your business, you definitely need those skilful, knowledgeable, expertise and certain characteristics of personnel to manage and plan your business toward that direction, so to speak. Again, you can see clearly their calibre through effective networking.

In conclusion, to stay ahead and sustain our businesses growth, we need a strong, effective and powerful networking. Effective networking is to build your traffic, brand and wealth. What is far more important is that it serves as a lifeline to every successful business. We need networking to keep things moving forward. In short, effective and resourceful networking is wealth. Otherwise, how is our business going to have the adequate exposure? Without much exposure, we are definitely going to face the prospect of closure.

The worth of your lives neither comes from who you are; nor who you know; but how many people know you.


Obviously, Networking is always in conjunction with your career or business. Below are some of the benefits which we can obtain from it:-

1. Forging beneficial relationships: 

By doing this, you may pool and share all your resources to a much greater extent for mutual benefits. Hence, it will enhance the relationships so as to build the trust amongst ourselves.

2. Developing and sharpening your knowledge, skills and mindset: 

Interacting with new people especially in your field may help you see things in different perspective. Alternatively, you may also sharpen and polish your skills even better through interacting with each other within your network. You may learn both mistakes and successes from others.

3. Additional resources:

Networking may also be from experienced professionals with wealth of knowledge, talents and skill that you may not have. They have, most probably different experience from you, and have different view point from you as well. In this sense, prosperity through diversity is applicable here.

By building a strong network, you automatically have people “on your side” that will help you spread good information about you and your business - Who doesn’t want this?

4. Building and maintaining your personal brand: 

In addition, Networking also may help you to establish your personal brand both online and offline. Hence, people will get to know you and trust you much earlier and more willing to look for your guidance and advice.

5. Boosting your self-esteem: 

Your self-esteem will also be boosted through socialization and make you more respected in your field. You tend to be much happier to have a network of individuals that can help you out and vice versa. Hence, it makes your business and brand grow further much easier.

Wishing you great success in building your networking and may you grow your wealth explosively.

This is huge: Chinese renminbi becomes directly tradable with the euro By Simon Black / October 1, 2014
The Chinese central bank, People’s Bank of China, issued a press release announcing the authorization of direct trading between the renminbi and the euro on the inter-bank foreign exchange market.
This is huge. The euro is the second most traded currency in the world, after the US dollar. The European Union is already China’s biggest trading partner and this is a major step in further increasing trade and investment ties with the EU as there is now a direct exchange rate between the two currencies, without the need to use the US dollar as the conduit.
The renminbi is quickly marching down the path of internationalization as the Chinese currency is now directly exchangeable with the US dollar, Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, Japanese yen, British pound, Russian ruble, and Malaysian ringgit.
The use of renminbi in international trade settlement nearly tripled in value worldwide over the past two years according the The Society for Worldwide International Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT), and over one third of financial institutions around the world already use renminbi for payments to China and Hong Kong.

When it comes to wealth creation. the key strategy should be a two-pronged approach to ensure financial securities that can withstand the test of time. James Oh

Sunday, 28 September 2014


Dear Friends, families, followers and fans,

The third quarter is almost gone.

Have you reviewed your progress for this quarter? Had it fared worse? If yes, then try and think differently before you begin with the fourth quarter.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have much easier time creating wealth all the time? 

Do you feel as if something is holding you back and you just can't figure out as to what it is?

Do you struggle with financial difficulties and feel that things are only bound to get worse considering how the economy is faring right now?

If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, then try and think differently before you kick start the fourth quarter. You too can achieve your success if you are willing to follow the recipe and focus on those key areas which I will share with you.

This is another great year for me. My life has gone from good to amazing. People may wonder how I did it. I must confess that I have managed to apply wealth visualization successfully. Thanks and credits must be given to several of my online gurus, namely Lisa Nicole, Dr. Steve G. Jones, Mario Polio and many others.

A couple of updates for you:-
I have developed 2 additional training programs and held talks with repeated clients and one additional professional institute, IIAM apart from my normal consultancy work.

My online presence is also gaining momentum; keeps growing forward and further, in terms of articles, video and viewers. My Google plus has hit more than 1.4 million views at the point of writing. 

My training engagements on hand are till Feb 2015 and keep coming in. The support is driving me to refine my course in all aspects so as to create much impact. Another milestone for me is to have my workshop at the local hotel in Nov 25, 2014.

My latest book, Financial Literacy For Financial Independence, Freedom and Richness is now pending editing and target to be published before end of 2014. I am in the midst of negotiating with a local party for publishing my book in hardcopies and the target is to be completed by early 2015.

Action inspires action. My articles had been published in the monthly Smart Investor magazines since July 2014. Straight three in a row now, it’s another new record for me. Trust I can create new record for every quarter update. I strongly believed that I will progress well till the year end.

These will keep me moving forward to another greater year, 2015.  Hope the same for you.

Stays tuned for more updates and let us know if there are any areas of assistance you require.

Thanks for your continuous support.

WRONG THERE ARE 6 - no joke


REALLY GO BACK AND TRY TO FIND THE 6 F's before you scroll down.

the reasoning behind is further down.

the brain cannot process "OF".

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!!

Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is genius.

Three is normal, four is quite rare.

What are the chief themes of the book “Better than the Best” by James OH?

Better Than The Best is a must-read and is definitely a best seller. It has given tips to help readers to know more about themselves. It also prepares them to take up the challenges in life which crop up anytime because of the rapid changes in the environment and technology. It is a detailed personal account and a series of anecdotes which the author shares with us, the readers. The instances are nothing but his experiences and hind sights on how he came up in his life. The book obviously helps us in sharpening our minds and in boosting our confidence towards living a life of our choice. We should live our life to the fullest. In the process of living it we access several ideas, illustrations and insights. This book must be read by all those who want to live a life without any regret. 

James Oh is an author, speaker and accountant. His broad experiences and multifaceted talents together with his passion, enthusiasm and commitment make him a great difference maker. His expertise is in making people see the invisible, do the impossible and in helping people see new opportunities in life without losing sight of the details. Seeing things in a new, fresh light is very conducive to creativity. The author adopts a very practical approach and provides real life examples which readers understand easily and they are able to relate to it.

Many a times we do not realize that we are capable of doing many more things than what we actually do. We tend to go into a slumber thinking that we lack the potential to work. It is actually a grave mistake and an injustice we are doing to our own selves. Human life is a wonderful mixture of ups and downs, the good and the bad. Who decides what is good or bad? What actually is good and what is bad? These are all relative concepts we construct for our convenience. We tag something good and some others as bad. When our mind is free of all assumptions and preconceived notions we will see things in an unbiased way. For free and effective thinking some of us may need some training. Some people have very weak minds which do not stand a small misdeed or slight difficulty in life. Difficulties in life do not come to destroy us, but they teach us to stand up straight and to face whatever comes our way.

Life is often compared to a journey. We cannot jump over troubles, but we must take a baby step initially. We know that Rome was not built in a day. There is tremendous amount of effort which has gone into building such a beautiful city. Great thinkers, scientists and Nobel laureates did not become successful overnight. We should understand that there are years of hard work, many attempts which did not yield positive results, but the point to take home is their perseverance and the strong bent of mind to keep trying till they succeed. 

We often search in the outside world for some help which would help us in developing our personality. In essence, we need to look at our inner self and find out what is our strength which we may have kept unused for long. Dig deep within and find the real zeal within us which, if used to the optimum level, will take us to great heights in life. Life is never static, but it undergoes continuous changes. We must adopt ourselves to the changing times and accept that change is necessary. Therefore, we should know ourselves, love ourselves and take ourselves to be a great resource.

We should have faith in our positive qualities, strengths and merits. Never let negative thoughts creep into your mind if you are one weak-minded person. Believe in yourself, do what you love to do without bothering about what others will say. Your life is your choice. You decide how you want to live it and live it the best possible way. James Oh gives a series of great tips in the form of a book which should be widely read and followed in our daily life.
