PORTRAITS OF SUCCESS
Meet Malaysia's successful women who started from
ground zero in their respective fields and have now emerged
with their victory flag flying high as inspiration to other
women. By Dina Zaman
My passion is the internet. Being able to make money
from ideas you love is definitely fulfilling. When the company
first started, i faced lots of obstacles, ranging from not being
'technical' enough when I was involved in technology discussion
to situations whereby I was questioned in terms of my reliability
based on my age and gender.
"As I discovered the power of Internet, I
wanted to share the joy and its benefits with other people.
I started doing more presentations to educate the public and
interested prospects on how to build successful business online.
Now, I'm delighted to be able to coach many internet entrepreneurs
and the various Web site owners that are selling well on the
Internet. I am also truly grateful to be acknowledged for my
achievements. For instance, being able to speak at international
level conferences and having the opportunity to become a contributing
author for a recently published book by the World Economic Forum.
"I do not want to grow old living life as it is and be
filled with regrets for not attempting the ideas i had in my
mind. In whatever situation, there will be ups and downs. The
key here is to stand up higher and faster after each pitfall
to ensure you've learnt something. Positive thinking and applying
good motivational tools always help in times of doubt. When
you look back, you'd find that those problems were not really
important after all."
