School Drop-Out To $5000/day
Hi, my name is Joe Lee. Who am I? I’m a Coach, Trainer and Speaker. And I may have some interesting stories to share with you Do I have success stories to share? Absolutely!
And do I have failure stories to share? Tons of it. In fact, I failed more than I succeed. And I was never beaten, over and over again I came back from ashes. What didn’t kill me, made me stronger! And I came back stronger and wiser each time.
I was very broke once. Left with $17.20 in my bank account, and no job. I can’t even buy myself a decent lunch. I walked instead of taking public transport just to save that few cents. To survive, I hit the streets to sell novelty products. Talking to hundreds and hundreds of people a night to make $100 – $200 a night. I had to endure being caught by the authority, and eventually becoming so good that I went guerilla with them.
I went from selling on streets to become a wholesaler. That lasted for a short while, because it really wasn’t my passion.
And I screwed up many times in life. I screwed up 3 times in business. I screwed up in teams. But I learned precious lessons in all these screw-ups. I turn all these experiences into lessons – Lessons of Life, business and self. I share these lessons during my coaching, training and speaking sessions.
2003, I attended a program called Money & You which gave me a life changing experience.
Right after Money & you I started my first business, Actionpreneur Pte Ltd in 2003, conducting entrepreneur, innovation and motivation workshops for children. This was special because it was started with only $20, and within a month I was generating five-figure sum.
This is an achievement to me because I was a school drop-out. In a society that holds certifications as high regards, I am considered a failure.
When my clients asked for my qualification, my response was, “no qualification.” And yet till date, I’ve inspired more than 10,000 teenagers, work with more than 30 schools in Singapore.
Something great happened in 2005!
I was awarded the Spirit of Enterprise 2005. The award was presented to me by our Singapore Ex-President, President Nathan. That year, 40 entrepreneurs were selected out of the 140,000 candidates, I was honoured, I’m extremely thankful to those who supported me during the darkest hours of my life.
In 2006, I shifted my business direction to the adult arena. I worked with training companies to bring me into multi-national companies. I’ve done training for Government bodies and a couple of Multi National Company. Take a look on the clients list.
2009 was a turning point in my business. I had the opportunity to promote a US Program – Money & You in Singapore. I’ve grown tremendously in the area of business, self and life promoting this program until 2011, which I decided the journey with Money & You has come to an end.
It’s time now to re-brand and re-create myself. To be a coach, trainer and speaker in my own authentic way. I’m going to add value to more people and to you in a special way.
Throughout the years of running business, I’ve never stop improving myself. While running my business, I was a Preview Speaker for Money & You from 2005 – 2011. While promoting Money & You, I trained new Speakers for succession plan. I created a new structure to train these new speakers which was something that I was proud of.
Also I attended Instructor Training Program from U.S. which sole objective was to train Money & You Instructors. This is a very high gradient Program for anyone who wants to be a powerful instructor.
Taking up Coaching Training Program is another step to inspire more human being in the world. With the coaching skill, I am able to inspire people in a way that will be permanent. Read my Coaching Services.
