Do you want to wake up and be greeted by a positive news story that gets your day off to a great start?

Core Values & Success Part II: Core Values Are For Life, Not Just For Christmas!

Eweb-Team-1024x575

In the first part, we spoke of how flawed the use of KPI alone was. In this blog, we’ll focus on how core values can improve the working experience of your employees and in turn lead to long-term success. You need to think long and hard about the core values you want your company to become known for. Remember, you need no external justification because core values should have an essential value to those within the company. Read More »

Core Values & Success Part I: Why Using KPI Only Will Lead To Your Company’s Demise

Those who are familiar with my blog posts often hear me discuss the fundamental importance of core values. This is because core ideology is the very definition of a company’s character. Long after technological breakthroughs, fads and leaders come and go, a company’s core values will be its very essence, its legacy. Markets will change, leaders will leave, products will become obsolete but a strong set of core values is constant and enduring.

Trade in your Expectation for Appreciation!

‘Promoting company culture and improving workplace morale is only something that can be done in a small business.’ This is a common refrain and one which suggests that large corporations are interested only in profit. In the world of business, it seems as if increase in profit is inversely proportional to the promotion of company culture. Small companies start off as a tight-knit group and the owners of the company does everything possible to instill a company ethos. This is done by praising and rewarding staff when necessary. The workplace is more of a family atmosphere as everyone is relaxed and feels comfortable in the presence of everyone else.

When I clocked out of my day job and decided to start my own business, I was surviving off instant noodles and spam sandwiches from my bedroom ‘office’. The rise of the internet has enabled the world to run a business outside of the traditional office environment, as a result of this new digital age, I too decided to embrace the opportunities in front of me when I first started E-Web Marketing. To get started I’d put up posters about my business around universities and bus stops and during this start-up phase, majority of my business enquiries would occur around 3-5am in the morning. Looking back, those early morning wake up calls were well worth it.

Stepping into the business industry, I found that the Australian business community were very quick to accept me.

I shared with BBC Reporter, Duncan Kennedy, my experiences with living in Australia and being in the business industry. It is evident that Asian Australians are increasingly making their mark in the business and commerce arena and assimilation is no longer a difficult issue for young Asian Australians. To read the article and watch the video click here.

I sucked at school. During my school years in Hong Kong I always found myself at the bottom of the class. It wasn’t until my grandmother took me to Australia that I started embracing my entrepreneurial skills and was eventually introduced to the Internet. My journey from a young and impressionable student to Chief Empowerment Officer for E-Web Marketing  was recently featured in Australia’s Largest Chinese Magazine, New Land Magazine and I would like to share with you excerpts from my story.
