Before embarking on the entrepreneur journey, I have spent 30 years in business planning, event management, merger & acquisition, marketing, branding and finally platform management. These experiences were collectively accumulated in venture manufacturing, financial sector, luxury industry and the world of Agrochemicals (which totally helped me to understand formulation).
When I have decided to embark on the journey of entrepreneurship, the first important task was to create an online presence. I tried different service providers and paid my school fees, finally settled with Shopify. I have made inquiries with different agencies to setup the eCommerce platform properly, most of them quoted me more than $10,000 for basic package. To me, it is a big sum to commit, not to forget, we still have to reserve fund for marketing and future operation. I was down for a few weeks as I have underestimated the startup cost but I have finally asked myself why can't I do it since my last corporate job was to maintain a digital asset platform?
