I did a rather unusual sharing back in June, 2018 at Selangor Startup Accelerator - The topic was “100,000 Reasons Why You Should Not Start Your Own Biz”, literally translated from 十万个为什么你不该创业。

Here are the contents of the sharing. I hope you like it, if you have any thoughts, I welcome you to share it on comments below :)

100,000 reasons why you should not start your own biz



#1 You Think Your Hobby is Your Business



#2 You Cannot Live Cheaply



#3 You Think Growth Is Not Important



#4 You Don't Measure



#5 Don't Want Your Life Be Like A Roller Coaster?



#6 You Think Everything is Linear...



#7 Loneliness is Your Best Friend



#8 You Solve a Problem Nobody Cares about



#9 You Like to Attend Events!?



#10 So you have a CEO namecard...



#11 You always feeling I ain't lucky

#28 Most businesses fail



#29 In the end...

#32 You sure this is for you?




My primary message is, "Start Your Own Biz" is really not for everyone, and most importantly, you dont have to start your own business to make a meaning... nor to make money.

The key is to really understand who you are, what you are good at, what do you value, and then align what you want to achieve with your values - then you shall have a purpose-driven, fulfilling life with minimal regrets, and in the end, this is all that matters.
