  3. 3. Chong Wei Liang is a visionary business developer who has started his career in insurance since 2004. He had worked with families and professionals for the past 13 years in providing financial solutions to realize client’s financial goals. His client always commend his quality of being a good listener, attentive to details and empathetic. Authors’ Biography Wei Liang Your Thought Shape Your Destiny! His family was impoverished by a financial disaster when his father has been diagnosed with “sickness”. To sustain the family, he worked on 3 different jobs daily, being a financial service consultant, a Judo coach and also a salesman in the same time. He worked hard for the family but also struggled to work on his dreams. He like many people are stricken by life’s struggles and at the verge of giving up their dreams. In 2008, he attended a workshop where he was introduced to the “vision board”. The coach asked him to chart out his vision for the next 3 years in life and to send a letter to his future self in 1 years’ time. With the vision board, he is clear that career in insurance is what his desires and have focused on it ever since. At first, like many other start-up agents, he struggled to grow his pool of customers. He has learned much after trying various methods in cold calling, road sales, and door to door. Finally he found an effective method via referral. Through referral the agency has seen a rapid growth into a six figure agency and have impacted many junior managers and their teams. 3 GAME THINKING
  4. 4. Deep down my heart, I’m aware of the things I didn’t wanted. I do not want to work just to meet the month’s end. Instead of spending time with my beloved family, I’ve worked additional jobs. Most of all, I do not want to be a visionless and fearful person. Many people paralyzed by fear at the mere thought of being an entrepreneur, just as I did before. Therefore I like to share my experience through this book, and I hope this will be helpful for you, if you are moving into a career in finance. Within this book you will learn about: 1.Market segmentation 2.Mentality for success 3.The pros and cons of a day job versus business and commission based business 4.Answers for your common concerns PREFACE BY WEI LIANG Have you ever been working day and night but feeling you are stuck and going nowhere? I have been there too. 10 years ago I worked really hard to support my family’s financial. I was hoping that I could turn our financial situation around by working hard. I used to think that the more I’ve worked, the more I will earn. However, I could hardly save up to anything. Most of my income are to finance my car loan, insurance and my family expenses. At the end I couldn’t even afford to own a property. 4 GAME THINKING
  5. 5. Chapter 1: Which Elevator Will You Get On? We’ve all had the experience of waiting for an elevator and having two doors open simultaneously, which momentarily confuses us as we try to decide which door to walk through. When we look up and see the arrow indicating the direction of each elevator, it makes it much easier for us to choose the correct entrance, depending on whether we are going up or down. It’s funny, isn’t it, how we still sometimes hesitate when those two open doors, even though we knew which direction we intended to go in well before the doors opened simultaneously? There’s nothing funny about going down when you want to go up, especially when it relates to your financial future. Yet, that is precisely what is happening to most people around the world today. The Pareto Principle and Malaysia When the well-known Pareto Principle—80% of the wealth is controlled by 20% of the population—begins to impact your career in a big way, it moves from abstract concept to harsh reality. And considering that Malaysia has the greatest income inequality among democratic, capitalistic countries, that 80-20 principle is probably an underestimate of the unequal distribution of wealth in Malaysia. So this is why we ask: which elevator will you get on? The one that could lead to being in the top 20% of the 20% who control the bulk of the wealth, i.e., the 4% of Malaysia’s population that are multimillionaires? Or, the one that will continue to get a smaller and smaller portion at that table? 5 GAME THINKING
  6. 6. A Contrast of Elevators Beyond fairly abstract numbers, think of the concrete differences between those who are traveling in the “Up” elevator and those plummeting in the “Down” elevator: Financially secure and stress-free vs. living paycheck to paycheck with constant stress A rewarding sense of accomplishment vs. an endless quest to climb a slippery company ladder Plenty of time for family and friends vs. taking a second job and overtime to make ends meet Able to impact society for good through financial clout vs. voiceless, impotent complaints about society This list of contrasts could go on and on, but you get the picture of the groups in the two elevators. So which one do you want to walk into? We’re Conditioned to Hop on the “Down” Elevator Perhaps you have not even thought about the fact that you choose which elevator you will enter every day, by your actions and inaction. Unfortunately, we have all been conditioned to think that it’s normal to ride on the “Down” elevator and that struggling financially is part of life. This has resulted from the input of many sources, including our teachers. Robert Kiyosaki, the best-selling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, points out that our school system is designed to create good employees, not employers. 6 GAME THINKING
  7. 7. He said, “We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for them.” In other words, our schooling conditions us to naturally enter the “Down” elevator. We don’t believe that everyone should simply file obediently into the “Down” elevator. We think that in a free-market country, everyone should have the freedom to design his or her own life rather than scrape by on meager wages, happy just to make ends meet. Imagine that: Money is not a stressful area in your life. You are able to arrange your schedule around your children’s special events — and never miss one! You have the freedom to play a round of golf each week to refresh your body and soul, during normal (less-crowded) work hours. You have the freedom to take a vacation for as long as you like, not cut if off when a boss or company ordains that you have to return. By taking just half an hour to read this book , you guarantee yourself a spot on the “Up” elevator. What if you could burst out of the “Down” elevator and hop into the “Up” elevator? Would you do it? We thought so. 7 GAME THINKING
  8. 8. What This Book Will Do For You Stay with us over the next several pages and you will learn the secret to changing which elevator you get on, and changing your life and the destiny of your family as we reveal the keys to solid, consistent, liberating wealth creation. The two elevator doors have just opened in front of you. Which one will you choose? 8 GAME THINKING
  9. 9. As you move on to this second chapter, we are confident that you have chosen to ride in the elevator going up. This brief book will help you to get to where you want to go as you reach true financial freedom through working in the exciting financial services sector. People who decide to become their own boss in the financial services sector find several benefits that go far beyond increased compensation. As we’ve worked with entrepreneurs in this area for several years, they mention five huge benefits found in their new career: A huge sense of fulfilment as they impact society through their newfound wealth and ability to employ others. People’s lives are changed and there is no price tag to put on that. Both clients and family members will thank you for what you do for them. A tremendous amount of pride and self-satisfaction as you reach your potential as a person, perhaps for the first time. As you make your living off of commissions and operate under a performance-based income, you might be surprised at how far you can push yourself and how much you can achieve. 9 GAME THINKING Chapter 2: Getting on the “Up” Elevator Through the Financial Services Sector
  10. 10. Relief as you control your own destiny in many ways, from being your own boss to choosing your own clients. As you work in the financial services sector, you ultimately decide how much you earn, when and where you work and how long you really need for vacations and sick days. This self-direction does wonders for people’s esteem. A far better work-life balance as you are free to spend time with family and friends because you decide your own hours. You will never miss a child’s important event again because you can plan around his/her schedule. And, if you sense your family needs to get away—no problem, you are the boss and you can elect to go on a much-needed vacation. A new level of relaxation as recurring income is generated with time, meaning that you don’t have to continually beat the bushes for clients. This new serenity will impact your entire life and your relationships with others. These benefits cannot be had when you work for others. Have you ever noticed that if you simply change a few letters, “salary” can be rendered as “slavery” That’s no accident. The fact is that if you are living on a salary as an employee, you are a slave to the system. And, if you respond with, “But I have security,” I think you understand by now that there is almost no job security anywhere in the world today. It doesn’t matter how hard you work, how much your boss likes you, how well the economy performs, you face an income cap due to the system. You also are just one brief notice of termination from financial devastation, and you have seen friends and colleagues go through that. 10 GAME THINKING
  11. 11. A Changed Attitude for a Changing World Lifetime employment and unquestionable job security are remnants from the past. The world has changed drastically in the past few decades, and you need to as well. The old saying, “If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me” has never been more true. If you are to achieve the financial freedom that you seek for you and your family, you will need to go out and grab it yourself. You know this deep down, and that’s why you’re reading this book. Working in the financial services sector gives you the greatest opportunity to have the life you’ve always dreamed of. Take a look at this table to understand the choice you face: Employees Entrepreneurs Are told what to do for 40+ years of their working life Once trained, free to manage time as they see fit Maximum earnings are dictated by others No cap on earnings Lifestyle ultimately determined by corporate bosses Lifestyle a matter of own choice Sense of fulfilment limited by bosses Unlimited sense of fulfilment and achievement, chance to realize full potential as a person Often works with clients that are assigned to him Chooses own clients Now that you clearly see the numerous advantages of working as your own boss in the financial services sector, let’s get into specifics about achieving success. What are the characteristics of entrepreneurs who achieve the lofty financial goals that they set? 11 GAME THINKING
  12. 12. Chapter 3: Keys to Successful Entrepreneurship Why is it that some people get incredibly rich and lead amazing lifestyles while running their own businesses, and others struggle to grow their client list and have difficulty expanding their business? Over our years of study and observation while helping to launch people into entrepreneurship as financial consultants, here is what we’ve found to be the keys to success: They have fantastic mentors who guide them about what they should and shouldn’t do They have carefully completed a comprehensive, proven training program They are surrounded by a strong team and positive culture that provides abundant mental, physical and emotional support How We Set You Up for Success We ensure that you will have all of these keys to success: Our mentors are the best of the best in the industry―more than willing to impart their extensive knowledge and experience to you, greatly reducing your learning curve. The average productivity in the industry is approximately $45K; our average is 3-5 times greater than that. We have our own proprietary investment methodology and investment team, which helps our clients to build and increase their assets. We work with external partners who are the best regional speakers/trainers in their field to organize seminars and events for leads generation—something that other firms don’t do. 12 GAME THINKING
  13. 13. Chapter 4: Is Working on Commission Risky? As you’ve read about becoming a financial consultant, you have probably surmised that you will be working on commission. You are correct. That doesn’t have to be frightening, however. In fact, it can be highly liberating as you realize that you will earn as much as you want to, in direct proportion to the effort that you expend. The key to becoming financially independent as you work on commission is to have an arrangement with the parent company that is fair. In that regard, we are entirely trustworthy, and you will discover that very quickly. In response to the idea that a commission earner operates under a high-risk arrangement while a salary earner faces only a low-risk future, consider carefully the following chart: (Source: Gama International) 13 GAME THINKING Career Investment-Risk-Return Matrix Advisor/Representative Small Business Franchise Professional Employee Investment Risk Return Low Low-Med High High Med-High Low-Med Med-High Low-Med Low-Med Med-High HighHigh High High Low
  14. 14. To explain this chart, realize that one way to view risk is to understand it in relation to how people pay you. Wage earners fall into one of three categories when it comes to getting paid: business owners, employees and advisors. Think about how each of these groups of people receive compensation: Business owners often face a situation where they have 30 accounts, with a couple of them making up a huge slice of their revenue, often up to 80%. Think of what happens if one of those prominent accounts is lost: that is true risk! Employees have only one account, of course: their employers. If the employer fires the employee, he/she loses ALL of his/her accounts. Again, that is true risk. Advisors, on the other hand, have hundreds of clients that compensate them. If they lose a few from time to time, the risk is absolutely minimal. There is almost no chance of losing all of one’s clients. This is far less risky. The Investment Needed to Achieve Wealth Another way to understand how low risk being a financial advisor is, it can be helpful to reflect on how much of an investment is required to achieve considerable wealth. Think about how much these groups of people invest to make six-figure incomes: Doctors and lawyers go to school for many years and pour tens of thousands of dollars into their education, as well as paying for several examinations Business owners often need a gigantic amount of capital to launch, at least in the mid-five figures 14 GAME THINKING
  15. 15. Now, think about what will be needed to begin your new career as a financial advisor: at most, the cost of a license to do business. And don’t forget—many financial advisors make six-figure incomes within three to five years, with some reaching that figure sooner and others making seven- and eight-figure incomes. As you can see, the “risk” of being a financial advisor is almost nil. You invest very little money, and the possible payoff is huge. 15 GAME THINKING
  16. 16. Chapter 5: Can I Become a Successful Financial Advisor? Now that you understand what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and how launching out on your own is actually a low-risk move, you must decide for yourself whether becoming a financial advisor is right for you. We want to give you a bit of input as you make that decision. From our years of working with all sorts of advisors, we have come up with a profile for a successful advisor. If you can put a checkmark beside each of these attitudes, then you have what it takes to become a financial advisor and lead the type of life that you’ve always dreamed of! To succeed as an advisor, you should: Have the desire to help others. Be a good listener and able to understand people’s problems. As Roy Bartell, a master salesman, has said, “Most people think ‘selling is the same as ‘talking,’ but the most successful salespeople know that listening is the most important part of their job.” Want to work for yourself and be your own boss. Have the ability to build strong relationships as you establish excellent rapport with people. Enjoy going out and meeting new people as you network through social events. So, do you have what it takes? Are you ready to get on the “Up” elevator? Let us guide you as you commence your lucrative new career as a financial advisor. You will never want to work for anyone else again. 16 GAME THINKING
