My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man, who unlike so many people really started creating his dream as soon as he could.
He left school at 16, with no network and no idea what he would do.
He just knew he couldn’t keep going through the motions anymore.
Even though it was extremely scary, he had to forge his own path, to start living the life that he wanted, on his own terms.
As he says “I’ve always been a believer in doing what you love and building life on your terms. And since leaving school at 16, I’ve been doing that with my life.
Since then, I’ve done two programs with Seth Godin, played in professional poker tournaments, traveled through 10 countries in 2 years, and started a marketing agency in Singapore with clients such as Wacoal Singapore and QuickBooks Asia.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Derrick Kwa such as:
Why he always had a natural curiosity with life and couldn’t shake the feeling that there should be a challenge posed everyday which he wasn’t getting unless he went searching for it
Why it is so mad that the world has to be at their desk at 9:00am and work until 17:00pm, where we now have the option of choosing time and location so easily.
Why he remembers creating his marketing company and realising that he hadnt quite achieved what he wanted as the stress was building into something he didnt want.
Why the first step to creating a business is looking at the people all around you, and finding people you know that need your help.
