Life is What We Make of it, We Decide What We Want it to be!


I am still the Big Boss and Owner of PORTMAN Education Group together with Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai. I have spent the last 7 years building it up with lots of challenges going through the ups and downs and it's time for my team to take over on the day to day operations as I do have a very capable leadership team now led by the CEO Pragash Ari Ragavan. This will allow me to now focus on building my Trusted Team Ernie Chen community with new businesses that are digital & online driven. It is also timely for me to now focus on the stock & property investment & educational programs for this cyclical economic period once every decade. If there is one lesson that I have learnt over the years is to focus on what you are best at doing, grow with the trends of what is the next big thing and let go for others to grow what you started with good fundamentals. Alone we can do so much, but together we can achieve so much more. 

I am blessed to have a new generation of leaders capable to lead and take it forward. In the meantime, do check out my new business launches and be part of the Team Ernie Chen community for our next wave of exponential growth. Thank you for your continuous support. 🙏😉

Do not take things for granted!

I have been working every day and on things that I have never done before. That is called taking myself out of my comfort zone. Why am I doing this? It's called being responsible for my team. I can easily just shut down for now and not have to endure the difficult challenges that we are going through now. I have been through tough times but this time around is beyond tough. I have however decided to stay the course and make it happen as I know with 3Million people losing jobs, it's going to be difficult for anyone to find a new job at the current moment. Unfortunately, it is disappointing to have found quite a few of you not focusing on what you are paid to do during office hours at home. In fact, some of you are just taking your salary and doing your own things that are not in the interest of the company. This is not right and will not be tolerated. If you want to do your own thing, please do not take my good intention for granted. These are not normal times and if you want to be part of the company, learn to be thankful for still getting paid to do your job. If you do not, it will be removed from you as there will be others that will appreciate the opportunity. Take serious note on this. Again work harder, smarter and faster. More than you ever had.

Living & Working in the New Normal.


We are now all living and working in the new normal. This is the new normal. The new normal will see us shifting to this new paradigm. We have to adapt and be agile to deal with anything that is thrown at us in the most unexpected manner. We have to deal with it survive, sustain and ultimately thrive with this new normal. As I have mentioned to all the 3Ms moving forward. We have to have a new mindset to think and believe that anything is possible. Whatever can happen has happened and will continue to do so. We have to have a new business model to deal with the current MCO and post MCO. We can no longer expect things to go back to what it used to be. It just will not. Lastly, we will need to have a new method of doing business. Our ways must be digitalised, automated with more of our business operations being online. We must leverage on digital technology. 

Team, please take note that as your boss and leader of the organisation, I will have to continue to make tough decisions based on organisation first, team second and individual last. Now is the time for us to really do something extraordinary and get out of our comfort zone. Change or be changed. Move forward or be left behind for good. This is the year that will redefine businesses as the business is never again what it used to be. Stay positive, stay focus and we will still do well for as long as we just don't give up.

Our Life is Like A Show! Have a Great Show!


Our life is yours to decide. How great of a show depends on what you are willing to do. 
Just remember that we do only live once and we are the producer, director and actor of the show that we live in called life. Live a great story and when you do live well, one life one story is good enough to inspire.

ONLY 1 Thing Matters Working with Me!


I don't care about your race, religion, gender or your paper qualification. You do not need to suck up to me. You do not need to tell me how well you are doing. You also do not need to tell me how much you love working with me. If you want to work with me you just have to deliver daily results. 
Talk is cheap. Action is good. Results build trust.

Play to Win with the Right Attitude!




Just watched Jumanji and it reminded me that we are just playing a game to win. Even though we may just have 3 lives, but if we are courageous, believe in what we want to achieve and overcoming all challenges, we will in the end make it through at the end and win. This is exactly what I did to overcome 2019 and looking forward to 2020. A year of amazing things to happen. Thank you for the strength. 🙏
