Hey, Change The World You Live In

Chris Chong | March 18, 2019 close

At the end of the day, that’s the point about life. It’s whatever you want it to be. It’s whatever lens you choose to see it through. Being average is so contagious it should be labelled by the medical industry as a communicable disease. That means it’s as easy as catching a cold. When you see someone else frown, those muscles around your mouth, they just start to naturally drop into a frown.

How To Tell My Asian Mum I Love Her

Chris Chong | February 3, 2019 close

So once upon a time I only worried about what my day’s schedule was, everyday, I thought about my career goals and how much I could save for that next trip to Bali, but one day, my mom got sick and I heard about it through a text, and because of that, I realized how much I love my mom and that I could lose the one person in the world who brought me into this very world. This very conversation I’m having with you is because of her. Because of that, I want the best medical attention for my parents and I want you to give the same to yours.

2018 End Of Year Highs And Lows

Chris Chong | December 30, 2018 close

Hey it’s the end of 2018 and I just wanted to thank you for listening to the podcast, you’ve been the reason why I record this podcast and I’d really like to hear your thoughts about what you think about the quality of the interviews and the content.

I just wanted to let you know that the podcast has been receiving good reviews, mostly from my parents, but I’ve been getting some great feedback through Linkedin. Next year, I plan to invite influential entrepreneurs, trendsetters and idealists in Singapore to interview and I hope that I can add a positive contribution to Singapore’s media landscape. Conversations that will hopefully add a unique point of view to topics that we care about. My goal is to turn my podcast into a TV show in 2019.

I thought that I’d share some of the key takeaways that I have taken away from a very important year in my life and my recent trip to Wonderfruit in Thailand.

Chris Chong | November 12, 2018 close

This next episode will be about how you need to be resourceful and adaptable if you are trying to fit in a new environment. With entrepreneurship, your environment is constantly changing. Not only is your internal environment changing, your mind and your ideas, but your inner circle or startup is changing including the opinions of those closest to you like your friends or family, and then your external environment and outside players are also changing rapidly, like your allies and competitors. Obviously, you should take care of yourself first, your sanity, then your inner circle, and then your externals like partners or enemies. Also, the time I became a male host at a bar.

Has The Startup Sense Of Community Eroded? Part 2

Chris Chong | October 19, 2018 close

The modern world is isolating, but you can make an effort to fix that in your own particular area. When I moved to Singapore to start Groupon, we knew we’d want the help and support of anyone as we embarked on this scary new entrepreneurship journey. We went door to door on the street, leaving a note asking for contact info. We continually emailed everyone and used this to keep informed of everyone’s information.  It’s was like facebook, before Facebook could allow you to become socially lazy. You do have to make an effort, but if you’re feeling lonely, get to know your neighbour, don’t make yourself a stranger and you’ll feel safe knowing that your neighbour has your back.
