Times are Tough but We will not Give Up!


All my weekdays are busy with monitoring the stock market to generate income so that we can pay salary and pay on time. We are very fortunate that we can still do that even in very difficult times. Why can we still do this when most Education institutions are already either closing down or in deep financial troubles?

The reason is simple. We are beyond education. If you do not understand what it means, please ask your line manager. Just to give you an idea, below is what my weekdays and weekends look like. I will conduct my Stock & Property Investment Masterclass weekly Q&A, Webinar Sales pitch closing for new registered students for SPIM, Secure deals on Government contracts, Packaging FH11 Skincare products to be delivered to our clients, cooked for the team and tapaw street food for dinner with the team, Modelled for Club 27 Fitness Jersey & met with my Team ACE Mastermind brothers for a luncheon gathering and market scanning & analysis and finally sending out the report to my Team Ernie Chen Platinum Family for the Following week's investment game plan & strategy. 

Yes, very productive weekdays weekend. Like all my weekdays and weekends. Please do know that your boss is working very hard and he has not stopped before the pandemic, during the pandemic and sure will not stop after the pandemic to ensure that we will not just survive but do so much better. We can do better. Because we deserve better for all our efforts.

Well said and brilliant theorem Mr. Ernie. The pandemic caused existential crises and financial struggles to every business around the world. Investing in stock market’s reward greater earnings especially those who are already a Master at it like yourself. Because of your thoughtful effort, the company has bounced back stronger. You and your team deserve better for all the efforts.

When you feel your are working hard enough, please always look at what others are doing. Your enough is never enough.
No one has the right to say "I worked very hard", as most of us are just doing what we are SUPPOSED to do, not do what is BEYOND the EXPECTATION. Results will show what we have been doing in the past.
Our organisation no need to have a lot of people to work, we only need to have COMPETENT people to work.

Thank you.

Thanks for sharing, Mr. Ernie. I have one to always be interested in the stock market, maybe right now is the best time for me to learn everywhere there is to it. I agree that we should not let the pandemic demotivate us from achieving our goals.

Creativity and innovation are fundamental both for the short-term survival of business during challenging times and for the long-term growth of the organization. Being complacent leads to inertia, a phenomenon that need to be avoided due to its adverse impact. Strategically deploying the mental and physical energy on other streams of income is definitely a boost factor that allows the organization to generate new and substantial source of income from various business units. Truly, many other organizations are failing in this aspect. Education institutions should function beyond the boundaries of classroom learning and the curriculum structure of its courses they offer. There are no boundaries to education, knowledge & skill advancement, competencies enhancement and personal and professional growth. The demand for knowledge, skills and competencies vary between different market segments but the need for learning and development remain to be essential for all these segments. PORTMAN shall serve different group of clienteles and position itself as a trusted education, training and consultancy centre that are able to bring a positive change to the lives of others, significantly benefitting our clientele’s through the value creation model that we have always believed in.

Hard work, dedication, persistency, performance and sincerity will surely be rewarded. Growth is inevitable.

I am amazed on the efforts and hard work shown by Mr. Ernie. I thought I have done my best for the organization, but looking at Mr. Ernie's contribution, then I realize that I need to work harder. This message is truly an eye-opener for me. In order to sustain, we need to contribute more that what is being expected. Brace ourselves for the busy schedule, the main thing that we want to see at the end is the result.

Thanks for the sharing Mr Ernie, even on weekends you still working forward to achieve organisation goals, what a remarkable leader you are! In this pandemic, let's all keep moving forward and never give up!

Life is a struggle. It throws curveballs at you, humbles you, and attempts to break you down; this pandemic in particular has changed our lives. The reason most people never achieve their dreams is because they simply give up. Leaders instil in their people a dream of success and a trust in themselves. Strong leaders inspire people to achieve their goals. You inspire us to work harder than to give up in the present situation.


Andrew Yau said...

Yes absolutely true Sifu. In this moment, Sifu & us are never stop working. Many companies out there probably struggling, or even closed down. We are grateful, we have a plan, we have a great boss like Sifu.

This meant a lot to our future success. We as a team, will continue to contribute better, not putting everything on Sifu's shoulder.

Thank you Sifu for all your efforts & time. I"ll play a better role. We'll get there together. You deserved better.

Thank you Mr.Ernie and the Team. I'm blessed to have such a team who never give up, constantly looking for new channels of revenue, new ideas to make it happen for the organization. We have to keep being positive and keep working harder to sustain during this pandemic moment. Never be calculative on the amount of work, time and effort contributed to the business. No regrets it is beneficial both for business and also for us. We need to have a story to tell for others and definitely a success story.

Karen Lin said...

Success has no shortcut. This is what I always believe in, we must utilize all the time to focus on what we are chasing for.

Hard work and effort are never lying, the result and answer will prove everyone.

Now the new business model has become our new lifestyle!

Teaching Online Class, Training, Selling Products Online, Fundraising via Online, Conducting Live Show Online, Investing in Stock Market and Make Business Deals Online.

All these just happen during this year. A lot of business owners hope to get what we are having now. The new model of business, The flexible team and The Trusted Community.
All these look & sounds easy, it takes heart & soul to build.
Everyone should appreciate we still have a job, and still in a money making organisation.

We can't make this happen alone, with everyone here go beyond. We can achieve more.

Thank you Mr. Ernie for continuous leading us and Congratulations we have just started our new level of business journey 😉

I am very grateful to have a boss like you and I have to say that I am very glad to witness all the happenings throughout the journey.
The journey has been tough but it is very exciting, especially in the past 1 years. The things I learned I experienced for the past 1 year could take 10 years for others.

Most important is how we can always turn BAD to GOOD. It is because we have a boss like you. Then will never give up on things and always lead us to a brighter future.

Thank you Mr. Ernie
