Merry has achieved her first million by the age of 26, just 4 years after graduating from university and her success and accolades were featured in the Straits Times in Could you share with us a bit about your background and the businesses that you are running?

My father owned a small engineering business while my mother is a very loving and caring housewife who took care of us. Inthere were a lot of unrests in Indonesia and anti-Chinese riots were breaking out in many places.

The main reason I decided to go into the seminar and motivation business is because of my passion to help other people to achieve their success. Based msrry my own experience I know that there are other people who are probably going through what I went through. I want to use my story to touch them and show them what is possible and also to groom them into leaders.

Merry, you have been very successful in all areas in life: What is the true definition of success? In addition, I am very clear that who you know, where you go and what you own are not true measures of personal success. It is the opportunity to continually grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiologically, intellectually, and financially while contributing positively to others. What are the key character traits of successful people and what tips and insights do you have for people who want to achieve financial independence and success early on in life?

Whatever the cost, regardless of any implications or consequences, I believe I must uphold this rule without question. I can build my business to be as big and strong as I possibly can, but the moment I compromise on my integrity, the whole thing may just crumble down overnight. I believe that one of the most important and critical characteristic that an entrepreneur must have is the willingness to continuously learn. In fact, now I always look up to and learn from successful role models who have accomplished their goals.


To succeed, we need to learn the best practices from the winners as well as their mistakes, so that we will not commit the same ones they did. You mention on your blog that you originally study engineering. Seeing as I was already 21 at that time and my parents were in their 50s, I thought that if I only achieved success in my 40s or 50s, my parents would be too old by then.

And they might be restricted by their health and their old age to enjoy all the things that I wanted to provide for them. While I might have the time, on a personal level, to achieve success later in life; but the question is, can they? What were the obstacles you were facing in the beginning of your career and how did you overcome them?

I guess there is the common expectation that a motivational speaker should be older, more mature and more seasoned. This is where my proven track record played a critical role.

On top of achieving my first million at a young age from my sales business, I have also built up a strong and impressive portfolio of corporate clients for my seminar and motivation business. How did you manage to irana the industry record, beating experienced advisors and got featured in the media for your achievements? My friends thought I was crazy when I told them about my thoughts of becoming an entrepreneur immediately after graduation.

While those closer to me knew that I chose this path because of my goals, they were also skeptical and tried to discourage me.

My teachers, tutors and lecturers also thought that it was a bad idea to go into business based on sales upon graduation. By the third month after I started the business I was already making more than the salaries my peers were earning as a fresh graduate.

As I said, my cream assets were my energy, time and willingness to work hard. If you calculate mathematically, I was doing three years of work in just one year. As a result, I broke many records and won many awards in the industry.

My passion is to help people achieve their personal dreams and merry and I feel fulfilled that this has become my business today. When people ask me how I have managed to come this far from the desperate state that I was in after I graduated from University, I tell them about my personal, ultimate success formula: Essentially, it is a three-step dard that starts with having a Biy, which is to know what your goals are.


Next, you will have to commit to taking massive Action that will bring you closer to that Vision. Finally, you must have the Passion to enjoy the entire process in spite of all the obstacles and failures that come your way.

Going through these three steps have enabled me to achieve my dreams and the success that I have worked hard for. How did you balance your busy professional life with your family? If one day I can host my own TV Show, especially the one that is very inspiring and successful in contributing positively to society, than it will really be a blessing from God for me. I came to Canada by myself to study at the Dzre of Toronto. Except for my aunt, I knew nobody here in Toronto and the first year was tough as I was adjusting to the culture, the language English is my third languageand the weather!

I came from the Tropics so seeing snow for the first time was exciting but it was overwhelming dealing with the cold. No matter the circumstances, if you are committed to your vision or the Why question, the How will take care of itself.
