What does MKPL Architect and Lionel Lim have in common? On hindsight, there seems to be no similarity. After all, MKPL is an architectural firm while Lionel Lim is a style coach. But if you look deeper, both are intricately related as our professions revolve around looking at things with a detailed eye.
 
And so here I am today at the firm conducting a half day grooming workshop for the staff. 
 
5 minutes prior to the start of the workshop, an intercom sounded. It was a reminder for the participants to gather at the training room. It’s a brilliant idea so that we can start on time!

At MKPL, the males outnumber the females. So today we had three tables of males versus one table of females. Males or females, the camaraderie among the colleagues was excellent as everyone was in a joyous mood to explore, learn and grow. More importantly, it was a pleasure to watch the participants hailing from different countries treat every aspect of the grooming workshop as seriously as their drawings. In between laughter, some even took their body measurements twice in good faith. The first time was to complete the homework, the second time was to reinforce the learning. I smiled and commented that all of them would qualify as experts in cloth measurements after today.
 
Recently, I have started to blend NLP techniques into my grooming workshop as it opens up a whole new world and helps additional value to the participants. And today was no different at MKPL. Expecting most of them to be visual, my hunch was proven right.

Many a times, when the learning gets fun, time passes all too quickly…Thanks for having me here today and thanks for the great, great moments we spent :)

Till the next grooming workshop, everyone!

Many people want to step out and exit the rat race but have not summoned enough courage to do so. I can relate to this and all of the pulling back factors - chief among them strong family objection, the fear of failure and a lack of self-conviction. 

But there will come a point in time when enough is enough. You just have to sack your boss and move on. 
Staying on would mean continued misery, false promises and a decreasing quality of life. Only upon leaving would one truly become free and fulfill one’s destiny on this planet. 

This was what I experienced myself. And looking back, since stepping out and starting my own business, I’m been extremely blessed to have summoned the courage to leave, pursue my dreams and persevere. 

What the last three plus years have culminated into has been an exciting journey of learning, growth and transformation beyond my wildest imagination.
 
This year alone, I’ve appeared on Mediacorp TV and today marks the second time I’m being featured in the national papers. What makes the article in today’s The Sunday Times extra special is that it is my first full page spread.
 
When I was younger, I used to admire the people who would appear in the papers for free – they had to be either politicians, celebrities, criminals or the dead. And then when the years evolved in the new economy, another category was added – entrepreneurs. 
 
I am proud to say I am an entrepreneur. And I will help you get dressed for success, in the same way I have walked the path myself :)
