Selangor Revisited

It’s Labor Day today. One of those few special days in a year when working folks are spared from the drudgery of working around the clock.

But I’m still in the office as I am typing this.

Believe me, when you’re working at hours you please – and have great passion for what you do – you will no longer want to look forward to the next holiday on the calendar.

Seeing that this is the third post to my new Personal Blog, I’d like to share a little more about myself with you.

You see, it’s funny how many Malaysians bore this misconception that:

MYTH: I am a Johorean.

FACT: I have a home in Johor Bahru, but my original hometown is in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Dig? 😉 We got that out of the way finally.

I was staying in the town area of J.B. for the last 2-3 years until recently, I was given an apprenticeship offer from one of the leading Internet Entrepreneurs in my country.

While most of the apprenticeship details are confidential, it involved me relocating my workstation for the next 6 months at the least, 1 year at the most – depending on the project workload and how well the partnership progresses.

Incidentally, this place I will be heading to is only 5-10 minutes away from my hometown so this is also a revisit opportunity for me.

Now that I am back here for the time being, I aim to achieve all of the following goals:

1. To learn as much as possible. I have to admit that I was pretty fortunate and lucky to have been offered a chance to learn from someone else who is already doing and achieving what I want to do – and at a small price. Not many people had been given such a lucrative opportunity, which is why I am very bend on making the most out of it. Because I know that no amount of money in the world could possibly replace the priceless education and wisdom that awaits me in the 6 months to a year to come.

2. To meet new people. Personally, I crave anonymity and as it may come as a surprise, I don’t fancy the idea of being seen in a crowd. But I know that if I were to always stay at home, I would be missing out on a lot of things in life.

3. Take my crack shot at executing my first 6 figure launch. I have executed 6-figure launches on 2 different occassions before… in Ringgit Malaysia only, though. Don’t get me wrong: the money’s good. However, I’d like to step up and explore the limits of my marketing power – and funnel them into executing my first 6-figure launch in US Dollars for a change. 😛

These are just some of the many goals I have in mind and heart, but you get the idea. 😉

Ultimately, I will want to take a nice retreat to J.B. at the end of the ordeal, and later accept the new challenges in wherever my next adventure would take me to.

So do check back often. Because the next couple of days, I’d like to introduce to you some of the key people in my Internet Marketing career. They’re interesting people, really.

Until then…

    Matt,

    I didn’t think it would be convenient to meet up, either. I was working on my own projects in the office at that time, to the point I was engrossed with it. 😉 Maybe the next time around?
