Everything is a Blessing. It's a matter of perspective. Decide wisely on yours.




2018 has been a year filled with continuous and consistent extraordinary challenges that are beyond business as usual. This only means that the personal growth has been extraordinary. I am grateful for the pain, tears and sufferings for which without, I will not know how to appreciate what I truly am capable of doing and achieving. I know that I am just an ordinary person that really wants to do extraordinary things to make a difference by making lives better. I may or may not achieve them. But I know I am willing & capable of extraordinary effort to make it happen till my last living breath. Thank you everyone for your trust, belief and opportunities. I am grateful and thankful for the good and bad. I am blessed. Have an awesome last day for 2018 and have an awesome 365 days ahead for 2019. 😉

2019 definitely will be another wave for ATCEN & PORTMAN Education Group to grow exponentially.

Understood that the sacrifices are needed to build something HUGE. Every person have a role to play, play it hard and smart. When a strong team comes together, mountain moves.

Stay Focus, do things in a BIG way, AWESOMENESS will then happen.

Wishing all a Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Regards,
Andrew Ykl

2018 must have been one of the challenging years of all.
They said without any pain, there will be no gain.
We learned to embrace the unexpected, follow evidence over opinion and accept the most experiment fail.
Happy New Year Mr.Ernie, may this year of Female Earth Pig brings tons of luck for all of us.

I can’t thank you enough for the assistance and motivation that you extended to me in the year gone by, Mr. Ernie.

May this New Year be another adventurous journey for all of us. Let’s explore new avenues & reach heights of the success together.

We are the blessing one.
Without Mr. Ernie and PORTMAN Education, I couldn't learn so much. Without God, I couldn't continue do what I am doing.
Every challenges we faced is to let us learn, its either the break through or break down.
I will always choose to break to the challenges.

Thank you for the sharing.

Every time we encounter a variety of challenges, sometimes it is not that we can complete it as simple as possible. We even need to spend more time, extraordinary efforts, passion to complete it. The process might painful, but when we all can achieve, we should thank for our perseverance and persistence.

Wishing all a Happy New Year! :D

Happy New Year Mr. Ernie!
First of all, a big congratulation to you for all the achievements made in 2018. Thank you for being a part of my life in 2018, changing myself as a better person.

As you said, life will be harder at certain times, but we need to learn on how to digest the bitter moment and find ways to change it to a sweet one. The harder we work for something that we want badly in our life, the greater chance we have to achieve it. Simultaneously, some things are just never meant to be, no matter how much we wish they were.

The one thing I have learnt in 2018 is that no matter how hard it gets, I will not let it to break me and life has to move on.

This is my year & our year!

Happy New Year Boss,

I don't regret what I've been through. I've been so blessed that I could never say, 'I wish this didn't happen.' It's part of who I am. It is only by reflecting on the past that one can create a better future.
Thank you.

Happy 2K19 Boss!

2k18 was a great year, I experienced, I learned, yet I'm still far from my desire. Like I said, I learned. One thing I learned in 2K18 that struck me was the sense of being grateful for what we have. People always misjudge when it comes to being grateful. They will say that is a shitty excuse to give for those who don't want to grab opportunities and climb the ladder to success. But if you really think about it, deep down in your mind you will realize that all the greatness, wealth, fame and so on and so forth are meaningless if we don't have real people in our circle. I will try to cherish every second in 2K19 and enjoy the present, because who knows what gonna happen in the future. - ZUL

First, thanks to Mr. Ernie for bringing us a FANTASTIC 2018!
I have been through a lot with PORTMAN, with Team, and Mr. Ernie.
It was a FANTASTIC year that I had in my life, we moved campus, from big to HUGE.
We had a lot of AWESOME events held in 2018 that gave us plenty of opportunities to scale.

I personally felt I have improved a lot when I see back where was I last time.
In this 1 year, I failed in a lot of things and also achieved a lot of things.
The best thing is I am still not giving up to continue improving and grow our business group together!

The best thing in 2018 is I really feel proud to all students and my team.
I am very glad to see them improving, growing and achieving results.
Some of them achieve and beyond, some of them not achieve but improved.
No matter what, I am very appreciate what I had in 2018.

However, we can do much better in 2019!
By just went through the 14th day of 2019, we already feel the FIRE is burning and we definately can achieve our goal in 2019 together.
With everyone's effort and align to the same direction, we will get there!
Let's make it happen together and make 2019 a SUPER FANTASTIC YEAR!

Happy New Year Mr. Ernie!
