Now

Created : March 2016
Only just created this page so will be progressively updating it as I go.

Based in Kuala Lumpur right now, this is what I am working on, in no particular order :

At work – building a business and a service where I can support, bring value and build a strong community of Human Resource and Technology professionals from around the world by providing both free and paid for resources like articles, podcasts and training.

With my three kids – two school-going ( 11 and 6) and one about to turn 3.  I am a big believer in homeschooling and the virtues of taking charge of your children’s education. So this means spending time after school hours on all those things that school may not be so good at building – good habits, perseverance, developing self confidence, thinking through the problem, looking for new problems etc. It’s a journey, not so much a destination.

Other projects

– proofreading and helping with the revised edition of a book on academic writing for beginners authored by Professor Elaine Morais;

– helping small businesses build their brand profile through marketing strategy, copywriting and blogging;

– revamping my financial outlook and becoming more goal-oriented by developing mindfulness of expenses, expense tracking and sticking to the plan.

– working on increasing my Twitter following organically.

Exercise – cutting down a bit on amount of weight training (time factor) and increasing the level of cardio intensity. Currently experimenting with 5k runs 5  or 6 times a week. Tough but it’s a mental game.

Writing – working on developing a practice for blogging daily by increasing both the number of posts and frequency of writing. Still struggling with it.

Language – learning French. 10 minute daily practice via duolingo. Been fun and easy so far.

Interests – looking for new kinds of work – project, freelance or part time. Check my resume

Studying – about to get onto Hubspot’s Inbound Marketing (free) short course
