Setting out on this career at a tender age of 22, many of Yvonne’s family members and friends were not fully supportive of her choice. Having worked for a year upon her graduation from Temasek Polytechnic in 2008, she experienced how being in the corporate world is not a bed of roses, at least not in her case. The mundane 9-6 office job, waiting for ‘orders’ to get work started and worst of all, not getting recognition for the effort and time she invested in were some of the displeasures she had. Soon life became unfulfilling and almost pointless. In her final year at the University of Birmingham (SIM), she came to realise that actions had to be taken to escape the career path she previously had. This drive landed her to be an undergrad Financial Services Consultant (FSC) and now a dedicated full-time FSC with Win Advisors, AIA.
Of course this decision was not a flippant one. Just like everyone, she was skeptical about this career, but having seen what really happens behind the scenes, it got her to realise that no other career would be as purposeful and she strongly believes that with a great amount of effort, determination and sincerity towards her clients, this newfound career will certainly bring her what she wants in life – the ability to do good, feel great and be recognised.
Do to others as you would have them do to you. This is one principle that she lives by religiously.
If she had a choice 20 years ago, she wished for a consultant who had catered to her family’s needs and affordability rather than be on their own. This little action could have gone a long way in making the lives of her family a better one. Likewise, being a consultant now, she believes in providing the best of interests for her clients like how she would do the best for herself and her loved ones. Financial planning, if done correctly, lifts your burdens and free your problems.
Financial planning is a lifelong process and likewise is her commitment to you. Bringing valued services to everyone is not just a job scope but a lifestyle. With every opportunity you trust her with, it will be one step closer in realising your financial freedom.
