I hope you’ve having an awesome start to the week.
Just a quick note to let you know that we have successfully upgraded our servers over the weekend for a faster, a more responsive, and a much bigger environment for you.
In recent months, our community has grown significantly to a point where we were reaching the limit of what was catered for. We decided it was time for an upgrade, albeit it was much sooner than we had expected, so to improve your experience on the site.
Behind the scene, the team worked tirelessly over the weekend with an abnormally high intake of cold icy beer and Malaysian takeaway in the battle to stay awake. In the end, I think the sleepless nights and red eyes were well worth it! LOL :)
You might notice that pages are loading faster, and more responsive than before. This will further improve the way Google crawls our site, and the experience of thousands of new visitors.....
As entrepreneurs, risk taking is the norm for us; in fact, the biggest risk is not taking any risk at all!
It seems the rest of the world doesn’t understand us. “Why would anyone in their right mind put so much on the line?” they ask. Sometimes it the loneliest journey one can ever travel on, yet we won’t have it any other way. We'd rather take a pledge of sobriety than to hang up the boots. I get it. Like you, I love the entrepreneurial spirit we share as business owners. But the truth is our attitude towards risk is often a double-edged sword. It’s always the same cycle. We start with a fancy business idea that everyone is going to fall in love with. We think we are infallible!
Then the hustle and bustle begins and there is never enough time. We run around as if we were just stung by an giant angry wasp! There's not even time to scratch an itchy bum, let alone be methodical or structured in our approach to running.....
Peter Drucker once said,
“The purpose of a business is to create a customer.”
Be that as it may, many of us in business experience difficulty finding new customers. Over the years, there were times when I was bewildered about why my business just wasn’t getting enough customers. Inevitably doubt sets in - and to Drucker’s point - sometimes to the extent whether or not my business had any purpose at all.
But what we need to remember is that people buy from those who are similar to them, who understand and empathise with them, and who genuinely solve problems. It’s all about building trust with prospects well before they buy anything.
Building trust doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. Yet we know that if we demonstrate a real concern for our prospect’s wellbeing, we are well on the way to earning their trust and turning them into a lifetime.....

Hi Savvies, it is with great pleasure that we introduce a much improved homepage layout to help improve visibility of people and all activities in your network. Its goal is to help you to be more connected and engaged with your rapidly growing network.
The network activity view is now much bigger, to help you see more of what is happening in your network in real time – such as new connections, new content, announcements, and much more. You can also see and welcome new members into the community. You will also see more featured businesses as they are created, and have to opportunity to follow and get to know these businesses.
We have also taken the opportunity with the new layout by making it even easier for you to access more quality and relevant content of interest to you, including Q&A and direct access to Top Influencers. Here is a snapshot and description (in RED) of what the new homepage layout looks like.
