A little about Andy
Growing up as the only child with parents who are not very well educated, his mum always told Andy to study hard and get a degree then he will have a good life. He seldom saw his father when he was a child as his father struggles to make ends meet with his low income. His mother stayed home as homemaker and to take care of Andy.
To lighten the burden on his parents, Andy started working to supplement the family's income when he was still studying in Junior College.
Life took a turn for the worse when Andy's father was nearly paralyzed when Andy was serving his National Service. His mother had to start working as a cleaner as his father could no longer work.
Finally graduated and armed with an Honors Degree in Network Computing, Andy thought he was ready to work towards his dreams. That may be true in the 80s but no longer enough in the 21st Century. The demands of the work environment are different and many others are graduates too.
Having worked in a SME, civil service then one of the “Big 4” accounting firms, he experienced the spectrum of working in different sectors and climbed the corporate ladder to mid-management after a few years.
However, the biggest change in priorities came with the birth of his first child. Andy wants to spend more time with his daughter. He wants to witness her first steps, her first words and many other firsts. A regular job, especially in a demanding, fast-paced environment, just doesn’t allow that possibility.
What job offers flexible working timing, non-existent income ceiling and still a career path? What choices does Andy have? It is never easy to start in a completely different career as he has always been in IT.
After weighing up the various options, he decided to embark on a very different career path - as a real estate salesperson. Mind-set needs to be changed, working style needs to be modified and self-discipline is very important as a real estate salesperson.
The beginning was tough especially in a difficult market situation. However, Andy was able to learn and grow with the help of his manager and mentors.
To date, he has achieved numerous awards and recognition from ERA for his sales results such as Top 50 Achievers and Million Dollar Club recipient.
Now, Andy is ready to help others achieve their dreams just like how his mentors had helped him. Working as a team with his mentors, he looks forward to groom and inspire the next Million Dollar Achievers!
With Andy, you are in safe hands!
