I started this industry by accident. Back in 1999, I was looking for a sales job and I met Uncle Khor at a luncheon.
I immediately liked him because he has a good sense of humour. When he introduced me to the insurance industry, I wasn’t too happy – in fact, I was quite reluctant! My brother was then an insurance agent at another life insurance company and he wasn’t doing well. After a few sessions of PCE (Pre-Contract Examination) guided by Uncle Khor, I decided to try it out.
I met up with Uncle Khor every night to get my dose of motivation and review my progress. I was going to quit but then Uncle Khor sponsored me to a seminar which turned my life around. I was very inspired when I came back because my mindset changed. I believed that this is an industry where there was plenty of gold but I needed to be persistent, put in the effort and hang in there.
In my third year, I made a breakthrough. My only regret is that my mum isn’t here to share my success. My mum became blind after giving birth to me and yet she always loved me unconditionally. The year I made it I wanted to surprise her for Christmas – I wanted to drive her around in my brand new car and give her a big fat ang pow. Unfortunately, she suffered a heart attack and passed away before I could do so.
After so many years I can say that this career has transformed my life. I followed Uncle Khor and learnt from him how to build a solid agency. Uncle Khor’s agency is like a home to me with a good mix of experienced and energetic people. You will definitely love being here!
