Highlights of Year 2011 And What’s New For 2012

By

Over the past few days, things had really been hectic… with the wedding banquet that’s coming up in January and among other things . It’s really challenging but definitely worth it.

Luckily,  I’ve managed to find some time for myself and finally get to relax on my favorite chair…

And guess who I thought of?

You! – My readers.

Just before I get interrupted again with something just as  important, I want to spend some time to give you an update about what has happened in the year 2011 and my goals for the new year… 2012.

Here are some of the breakthroughs I had for this year.

A 2 year old company that I set up is currently running at close to $900,000 sales a year.

If you consider the full affiliate sales that we generated the sales figure should be somewhere close to 1.2 million.

(Sorry that I can’t show any screenshot as my top accountant advise that I should not show my sales statistic online since I am not a listed company yet… Haha : )

I have another company that brought in $170,000 profit this year and I expect it to grow or maintain at this level for 2012.

Considering that I am currently only selling information products I am pretty happy with my efforts.

In fact, I could have done a lot better. Because I wasn’t working much for almost the first half of this year.

I took a long break from Feb – June to enjoy life.

In that period, I have gone on holidays to Taiwan, Hong Kong, China (twice), Bali, and Macau.

And over the last few months, I have also travelled to Hong Kong (again to shop) and Vietnam to play golf.

Come to think of it, I have 8 holiday trips this year. (and that’s amazing)

I almost wanted to squeeze in my annual Japan trip this month (Dec), but because I had to film for my movie and also be involved in my customary wedding preparation in Jan, I had to forgo the trip.

Beside hitting my target of 6 holidays a year, there are 2 highlights that I will fondly remember 2011 for (and both are my childhood dreams)

First off…

In Nov I went into the recording studio to record a cover song.

 

It’s always been a dream of mine to step into the recording studio to record a song.

As you may not know, I have been learning and practicing my singing for the last 2 years and I am really happy to know I have a chance to sing and record a song.

I was the first vocal student to kick off and I was really nervous during the recording.

 

Even thou I am still not very satisfied with my voice, I am glad to have the chance to do something that I never thought possible when I was young.

The song is being edited now and I hope it is good enough for me to release it and let you enjoy it.

The second biggest accomplishment for this year is… my upcoming movie.

Have you ever dreamed about being a lead actor or an actress in a movie?

Imagine experiencing the adrenaline rush and excitement when all the attention falls on you and everyone depends on you to give a world class performance even if its only for a short moment.

I have always found acting to be fascinating and I always dreamed about starring in an action movie.

And I’m really glad to say that I’ve done it.

You see, I actually funded a short film movie this year and I played the male lead as well.

I engaged one of the top movie directors in Singapore to help me to direct and write the script for my action-comedy movie. (He is the top dog in Singapore and he currently holds the position of having the top 2 highest grossing movies in Singapore)

I also managed to engage one of the best stunt directors in Singapore. (He is an award winning martial arts expert and the stunt director for one of Aaron kwok’s movie)

I am so glad to have the top 2 experts to help me out.

I want to keep this short film movie as a surprise so I won’t be releasing much information about it for now.

But I will keep you posted.

Here’s one of the ‘kidnap’ scene.

And here’s one of the scene where I was supposed to escape with the female lead – my wife.

Right now the production crew are busy with the post production and I hope they can get it up soon.

But seriously, I didn’t expect film making to be so tough.

The same scene can be retaken and repeated for an hour or so. But once it’s on the big screen, it can be just a short scene of only 15 seconds.

I am really looking forward to the release of my new movie.

Now on to the business side of things…

When I heard my landlord is thinking of increasing the rent for my office (which is already high in my standard), I decided to go and buy my own office space.

Last month I paid for the down payment of my new office and we will be moving in next year.

I am so happy that I finally have an office that I can call my own.

Another property collected… now I own a total of 4 properties and my aim is 10.

6 more to go and I will retire indefinitely…

In 2012…

I have been cracking my brain to see how I can double my sales (to 2 Millions) in 2012 without much efforts.

And I am happy to say that I have finally found a solution.

I have tested it out with a friend of mine (my guinea pig) for the last few months and I am satisfied with the results (we hit 6 figures in sales)

I plan to open a new company to house my new advertising platform and I am going to employed a new sales manager to run it.

This new business is going to achieve $1,000,000.00 sales in 12 months with only 1-2 employees.

The hardest part is how to achieve millions with minimum effort and I have finally found the answer to it.

The secret is to find the best people you can work with and share the wealth with them.

Many of my peers have asked me how I managed to achieve so much with such a small team.

And my reply is simple… I train my team to think like me – a boss;  that they should treat my business
as they’re business too.

So when the company makes a huge profit… I reward them handsomely to motivate them to work harder.

That’s it!

I will update you on my new business in 12 months time.

Other than that, on a personal level, I would want to go for more holidays (we are planning a 1 month Europe trip) and I would want to purchase my Maserati GT or more properties (Since the prices are going down now).

That’s my plan for the year 2012 =)

I hope you have a goal to strive for the new year… If you haven’t done your goal setting, you still have 2 more days before the start of a new year.

I wish you well in whatever you do and may you achieve great success in your endeavours.

WHAT DID YOU ACHIEVE IN 2011? OR WHAT’S YOUR GOAL FOR 2012? LET US KNOW… I LOVE TO HEAR IT!

    Wow….Good stuff Jaz..

    You are a great guy…

    Lets catch up soon..I should be in singapore somewhere in january middle..

  2. zahiri says:

    I hope I can be like you.

  3. Hi Jaz – Well, they say there is no rest for the wicked, but I am sure that doesn’t apply to you. *smiles*

    One thing I will ask you to do in 2012 please. Don’t follow in the footsteps of most other well known online promoters and remain real. I have not seen such a huge load of bullshit coming from the majority of them, that it makes me want to puke. They are so false and have no respect for those who have helped them get where they are today. There day is fast approaching and I can see a number of them disappearing off the Internet scene.

    Tread carefully, otherwise you will be tarred with the same brush and suffer the same fate. Remain loyal and helpful to those who follow you and you will survive.

    When I saw that you were doing a film in which you were kidnapped, I thought … “Oh NO! This isn’t going to end as per the written script.”

    Anyway Jaz, welcome back and I wish you well for 2012. You have MY predictions to consider.

    Jaz, thanks for sharing your progress and financial prowess for the year and also edging and encouraging us to “go for it” in 2012. Once you’re hot, you’re hot! And obviously you are into your element and genre of business that both excites and empowers you to go for even more.
    Me? I have plans too for my training business as I venture into producing and selling online personal/professional development products.
    Thanks for showing us the way – although the ‘way’ is often a little nebulous for newbies to find their way through.
    I trust that your support staff will be there on hand to serve us with passion, faith and loyalty to ensure that our learning is fully integrated into repeatable pragmatic actions.
    Good luck to all, and a very Happy New Year!

    Hi Jaz,
    It’s really inspiring what a difference 3-4 years can make in one’s life.
    2011 started really well for me but the end of 2011 was a rather challenging period professionally. Well for 2012.

    I want to increase by subscriber list by 200 names every month for the next 12 months.
    Hit six figures within the next 18 months.
    Post articles daily for the next 3 months.
    Launch a product via clickbank within the next six months.
    Wish me luck as I begin my new IM journey.

    P.S:Once you get your Maserati GT, remember to share the photo taken at the showroom with us.
