Thailand Internet Business Workshop

November 20 – 27. It’s been an amazing 8 days with David Cavanagh, team and students from around the world – all here in Pattaya, Thailand!
I’ve known David for exactly 10 years, and when I heard he was going to do a week-long workshop I decided to come on over to support.
Now the training was designed for newbies and frankly I didn’t expect to learn much from it (more like be there to see how he conducts the training and… I had to see for myself how he would last 8 days straight as the main speaker and trainer)
So imagine my surprise as I scribbled the ‘newbie’s workbook’ with notes and product ideas I think can fill up for the first Quarter of 2018! Learned his sales techniques – which I find is owed greatly to his transparency and being straight-up, no B.S. from the start. You don’t see that often these days from marketing teachers, almost a lost art.
Just as well, he’s supported by a small but great team of people – Roger Bourdon, Eric Zeitoun, Nisarat Cavanagh and a few but quality guest speakers he brought on board.
The participants are from around the world – Australia, UK, US, India, Hong Kong, Germany, just to name some.

Right after the Graduation night, I recorded my review and experience of the Thailand Internet Business Workshop.

Another video compilation of the week-long event:
Not a dull moment, I attended ALL the sessions and I believe so did most if not all the participants, that shows how captivating each of David’s sessions is.
Also thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a guest speaker on the last day – that came as a surprise to me considering I came here to participate like everyone else and sit in the workshop!
Overall I had an amazing time and wealth of learning opportunities. Also celebrated by 31st birthday while in workshop, haha

All in all, it’s been a great, mind-blowing experience and I’d like to be back again next round… and I’ll be bringing people over!

Musemancer Office Warming Party

It’s the third year since I founded Musemancer! Unlike last year I decided to go for something different and not Halloween Party. Because we had moved into a new office not long ago, we had an office warming party to celebrate both the new milestone and our anniversary.

The Friday night event was limited to our business friends and workshop students, and we kept it relatively simple. Boy, the food ran out quick though… not only everyone we invited showed up, we had an additional six guests from the Philippines led by Dexter Pagnaliwan!

Thanks everyone for showing up and being part of our journey as Musemancer grows 🙂

World E-Commerce Summit

It was a short notice, and I booked a last minute flight to Singapore to attend the World E-Commerce Summit. In part to support Jaz Lai‘s event, and also to meet and network with people here.

Frankly I had nothing much beyond a vague agenda and because I’m not into E-Commerce, I had little expectations. So imagine my surprise at how productive the weekend was – meeting my Coaching Client (and in the process of closing another!), getting things done with my behind-the-scenes business partner, hanging out with Isabel, and also meeting new and old faces alike!

Suddenly I wished the weekend was longer.

New Musemancer Office

We should have moved to the new office premise earlier last month. But as you know, there are times that things don’t go according to plan.

So imagine my relief when the private lift access was repaired and restored after 6 weeks of waiting and chasing in between.

This has sped up works and just in the nick of time (our Tenancy Agreement at the previous unit expired earlier this month) my staff and I had moved everything to a new, bigger place!

 

There a few outstanding renovation works and touching up, and we moved in a hurry to be fully operational.

So what’s different?

The new place is bigger (1,800 sq feet vs 1,064 sq feet previously)

Somewhat unconventional, but we have our own private lift access – which was also the source of a lot of frustrations; we are literally the first occupant in this side of the Tower and the lift had not worked… until we came about.

Now that are past the speed bumps, here’s what the new Musemancer looks like.

 

Thanks to WeBuildEasy? team for their amazing work!

It will be close to 3 years since I’ve started a full-time team and office, and looking back.. we sure came quite a way. The best part is: there’s still MORE to come!

Office Warming Party will be in October, to coincide with our 3 year anniversary.

DBA Jakarta Live

Last year I went to DBA Surabaya Live as a speaker, this time I returned as an attendee. Joining me from Malaysia are my ex-interns Shaun and Cally, workshop student Kate, and newcomer Charis 🙂

There were about 70+ people attending this event, and even though I think some parts of the event could have been improved we got what we came for: networking and connections building. Plus, catching up with friends in this business from long ago.

Didn’t get much work done as Internet is sluggish at JS Luwansa and with long hours at the event. I reasoned that I do a launch almost every month but it’s not all the time I get to meet my business associates and friends face-to-face.

Spent a good 4 days here receiving luxury and pampered treatment, lol.

After the event, we extended another two more days stay to visit Jakarta…
