    Partys Over. Time To Leave These Suckers Behind

    We all have a tendency to take the path of least resistance – the quickest path to living a lavish, hedonistic life while putting in as little effort as possible. For some people this is their sole purpose. Their dilatoriness invariably takes over, and their goals are traded away for shortcuts and some near sighted […]

    On Outsourcing To OEMs, And Dealing With The FDA

    More often than not, it is not feasible to build your own factory especially if your volume is not large. A lot of times, we have ideas and want to test the market, but first need to have those ideas built into reality. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense investing time and money to set […]

    NASDAQ Plunges Lower, Off by 2%

    Normally, I would step in and buy with both hands whatever I can, but I am not a buyer this time round. Markets are headed lower and for one simple reason; it has been far too easy. For the past 2 years+ the trade has been simply to close your eyes and buy any tech/AI related stocks. […]

    Building A Factory From Scratch In Thailand And The Concept Of Waterfall Engineering

    I’ve been travelling in and out of Bangkok the past few days visiting factories with CJ, my business partner, making preparations for some new pharmaceutical products we intend to launch early next year. Everyone involved with the company now are either pharmacists, doctors, or in pharma sales, except for me with no background in sciences, so the […]

    A Portion of What You Earn Is Yours To Keep

    You have expenses every month – rent, mortgages, food, phone bills – why not put yourself up on that list along with them? As a matter of fact, why not make yourself one the biggest recipient of those outgoing remittances, and pay yourself 10% of whatever comes in. The above adage was the attitude of the wealthiest city to ever […]

    The Importance Of Changing Up Your Karma

    I like to think of my life the same way I would think of a stock price – fluctuating with peaks and valleys in good times and in bad. Naturally, the goal is to steamroll through the highs while moderating the lows. Just like a stock, the low in the cycle is usually defined by […]

    The Golden Rules Of Communication

    I spent the day with K, meandering around from office to office trying to make some sales. To the companies with Japanese counterparts, naturally, I let him do the talking. For the life of me, I have never seen such ignorant, narrow-minded communication in my life. In fact, his ‘game’ is so bad, I’d be […]

    Luck Is Back On My Side, For Now

    K is back in town and nothing has changed since he was last here. His vision for the company is still flawed, albeit he seems to be getting more in touch with reality nowadays – the reality that his plan is not working. Business is an art and that’s what makes it so compelling and […]

    3 Month Review: Setting New Goals

    3 months have passed since I started writing this blog and it is time to take stock of progress. During that time, I have witnessed website traffic grow by many multiples, creating a small base of readership to build on going forward. Truth be told, I could care less about that, as that is not […]
