~ Lao Tzu
We are what we make of ourselves.
I always felt that school was not for me.
So I joined the workforce fresh out of high school and really worked to make something of myself. Inexperienced and young, I persisted against the many factors that were in my way, sometimes going for 25+ interviews in an era of my life.
I did not set out to dominate in systems and workflow. I fell into it literally.
I first learned how a business could benefit from systems and processes at 18 while managing my family’s Pho restaurant.
Though our food was excellent, our service was lacking.
It made sense to try to systemize our service, and in just 3 months, we went from disorganized and overwhelmed to systematic and streamlined, with profits doubling each month.
As my career progressed, I gradually marked administration, accounting, customer service and corporate management under my belt. Along the way, I also became a business consultant, providing systemization services and database software development. Holy moly, talk about diversification!
That’s where the shift began. I then stepped into Corporate life.
I hustled and climbed up the corporate ladder faster than I ever imagined.
But that also left me burnt out, with little gratification and discouragement.
There’s got to be more value and purpose to everything that I’m doing.

To complete the loop in small businesses by developing excellence, operational consistency and unshakeable quality.
Entrepreneurship is nothing new to me.
In the last 10 years, I had a business consulting practice, a gift basket business, in less than 3 months brought a product to market through my discovered passion of calligraphy, and today I have a thriving coaching practice.
Through all of these ventures, there were various lessons I learned when I had to walk away from some of them, due to the amount of time and effort it was costing me while I was working corporate still. The biggest takeaway was perseverance as a business owner, and how to juggle the various hats we have to wear as a solopreneur.
After each failure, was when I began to find the secret to optimizing and becoming more efficient at running a business corporately, I began to scale down how to optimize a small business. The magic isn’t in the tools, software or techniques we use individually.
When the loop is closed and all the gaps are bridged, was when the workflow magic began to shine. Nothing lights me up more than blending systems with personality. It gave me back a balance of freedom and hustle, where I was not drowning in “busyness“, producing results and stopped feeling guilty that I am not putting in over-time.
