2011 - Aug - 31

Today, 31st August 2011, I would like to put in a record of that I quit my job in Singapore. It has been over three years in this company from five years period in Singapore. This is the turning point in my life what I am trying to move head of my career from employee to small business owner.

It is not the first time that I was trying to go this way. It was in late of 2003 and early of 2004, there was one time I was trying to do same thing. It was in success in term of securing some projects from several companies; however it was failed in terms of management.

After reviewing the causes of those failures, I realized that I needed not only to study more in business but also needed to change my mindsets. I realized that my mindset was trained to be employee. I tried to secure project, and employed staffs and executed the projects. The major fault I encountered is that I was always trying to involve in actual execution processes. I was trying to do things myself other than deploying the responsibilities to my people.

As of I was being my own project engineer in my projects, I was trying to sort out daily project schedules rather than trying to seek new projects. This became major failure and causes my team lack of upcoming projects, became burden on me after completion the former projects. Eventually, the team could not proceed, led to failure.

Now, this is happening again in seven years later. Though I am not trying to say that I became an expert, more or less I got better knowledge how to execute projects than seven years ago.

This is starting point of the new career path in my life; a lot of challenging factors are waiting for me to get them over.

Heading towards more prosperous and flexible future!

MyanmarBB : Another Free Classified Ads Website For Myanmar

This is a website introductory post.

I believed it will be another starting to grow, good potential website with free bulletin board that I would like to feature. It is similar what shwerooms doing in the past, however now shwerooms is a bit overwhelming already. It success in terms of popularity, and user friendly however I believed that its web administrator will need to look into it. The landing page is mess of items most of these are not that useful for usual and repeated visitors, and the listing labelled with RECOMMEND also stay there for quite long time. I understand that it is a business to put up such advertisements and recommended items for a website to survive in long term. However, if the most of the items on the first page user saw are not that useful for them, it will bring a website to endangered status if there is a website with same target market and niche is coming up. (It's not to be offending, it is just a point for shwerooms to ponder).

Now, it is Myanmarbb, basically the first thing obvious for user is quite clean in look and easy to use. It fully supports Myanmar fonts and categories are also covering various sectors. I personally believed that it will be in high potential to grow in popularity and will gain high traffic in short span of time. The only thing will challenge to web admin is spammer because user can post ads in anonymous mode.

I hope all of my friends can have some ideas and advantages by using Have fun.

A Smart Guy - Ko Than Maung

It's been quite a long time I didn't share Arakan music. Now, I would like to share one of the songs sung by Arakanese famous singer, Than Maung. It's about a drunkard.

As you all know that habits like drinking and smoking are bad habits that are difficult to quit when you got them. However, these bad habits are seems to be good when you are having first time contact with them.

At the end of the days, these bad habits deteriorating not only health of that victim but also damage to personal image of the person, eventually lead to early death.

It's the song sung in Arakanese, hopefully you all will enjoy by listening.

Have fun.

Before You Quit Your Job

This August, Mgluaye is busy with handing over of the responsibilities to fellow colleagues. Of course, Mgluaye decided to quit job and has given one month advance notice to present company. August is the last month of the present career in my life. Same like all of you, this decision has not come out easily. Before quitting this steady and good job in Singapore, I have to encourage myself too much, because I have to start up my own career in my life. It can be said that I am heading from E quadrant to S quadrant in my life. There is a lot of challenges waiting for me to take over. In somewhere in September, Mgluaye will be going back to Myanmar and will start a business there.

Here is one of the audio books that give me more strength to take the step to move from E to S quadrant in my life, I would like to share with you all.

Below is the description of the book.

One of the basic tenets of the Rich Dad philosophy is to make the jump from employee to boss. This is the book that shows you how to make that leap - in 10 easy steps. Everyone in business knows that you won't ever achieve great wealth by being an employee. The real secret to making money and reaching financial independence is to start your own company and develop it quickly. Millions of aspiring entrepreneurs are already convinced that this is the way to go - but they just don't know how to take those first few steps. In BEFORE YOU QUIT YOUR JOB, Robert Kiyosaki presents first-hand accounts of his own start-up companies and how he learned from both his failures and his successes. Along the way he explains the basics of:

  • How to determine if your idea is a good one
  • How to write a solid business plan and where to find Othe People's Money to help finance the idea
  • How to incorporate yourself for business and tax purposes
  • How to help you find key advisors to help develop your concept
  • How to best launch your product or service.
