Hello everyone! Welcome to episode 37 of Nightly. My name is Bosslee and I am your host. Maybe this vacation is too long because instead of feeling refresh I am starting to feel lazy. It is like breaking a habit. If you have not taken leave for a long time, this is the exact kind of feeling. You go to work everyday, suddenly you are told to take a rest and you realised you have no idea of what to do. Another thing that I shared in this episode is the unexpected thing that happened. Each time I plan to startup something, I will be thrown a lemon.
Hello everyone! My name is Bosslee and I am your host.
I’m on leave these two days! Taking sometime off to think about the future and also preventing burnout from work
Writing this during my commuting to work. It’s 9:38 and I’m late for a call. But it does not matter because today I have plans to tell my boss I’m leaving. It’s not an easy conversation because I’m not leaving because of money, manager issues of such. It’s more of I’m looking to explore back in the startup scene.
As I’m trying to distract myself about the conversation I’m going to have later on. I’m was scrolling Facebook and I caught this article.
I first saw these keychain in the Adobe Spark Facebook I’m in. A group where we share tips on how to use Adobe mobile apps to create videos and all. I thought it was a pretty neat idea. And of course, shortly after these keychains went viral and its selling super well now.
Reading this, I start to think how come I’m not able to come up with something of the same. It’s a simple idea and now this designer is able to leverage on this publicity and start working / designing on more products to sell.
However at the same time, I’m also thinking. Maybe he have tried a lot times, maybe a lot a lot a lot of times and the times he failed, we are not aware.
Why did this thought got trigger, because we created a short video last for @123Superherbs and suddenly it went viral. It got 62 shares and 5k views on Facebook. Not a big thing when you look at videos from big media but for us, it is a big thing. This is the N video that we have created and the one we have least expectations. So keep testing and trying is the motivation reason I give myself.
I’m always thinking that I can start a business on the side before jumping 100% into an idea. Till now I have yet to achieve that. I have fellow colleagues who are FBA sellers and are doing pretty well. I’m guessing a bit longer they are able to replace their income with the side business and soon leave the job. About 15 months into my full time job, I never got to do it successfully.
I just missed my station at Outram because I got too engrossed in ✍️
So looking to resigned today is a big thing for me, because I have no plans moving forward. I’m have a duty to support my family. I will have no income. But I will have time, time to focus. I just need to make sure I do not allow this time to go to waste.
*if you are running your own business, I love to hear about it. How did you make the jump? How did you make sure you have reduced your risk? *
Hello everyone! Welcome to episode 35 of Nightly. Nightly is a show that documents about the life after work and me sharing the journey of building a business on the side. Friends like to call me bosslee.
Good partners are hard to find
A fellow colleague had a last day yesterday, very sad that she left. We work super well together. So like to put it out here that it is not easy to find talented, trust worthy and like minded individual. It was amazing working with her and I wish her all the best for the next challenge.
Listened to the audiobook titled “Crushing it” by Gray Vee. To me this is a bit like self-help book. Because there are lots of motivation porn in it, but it does kickstart my internal fire and I started to be more active on social media promoting my personal brand.
One big problem I have is getting started because I think a lot. I think if I should be posting on WordPress or Squarespace. Should I have my own personal Facebook page? How about creating different accounts for different topics. Looking at my problem I understand that my main problem is that I do not know what to do and the best course of action to document all the things I want to try and let it connect. The next best thing I need to do is consistency. For example: 123superherbs.com is a site I started last year that talks about healthy chinese soup recipes. For 10 months, I have a video each week. However I stop in the holiday period and also due to work. That was a bad decision because the site is still bringing traffic and I am sure there can be a business around it.
So next step, take action.

Looking forward to share more stuff with you all
Welcome to episode 34 of Nightly! It’s been two weeks since my last recording.
In this episode, I talked about my tattoo. The Thai lesson that I had and the final exam itself. Plus I discussed about how I took time for granted and I am going to keep time tightly on my hands.
Welcome to episode 33 of Nightly! Today is my tattoo session day. The intention is to complete it in a single session but it was too painful for me so I broke it down. I love the design, you can see the design on my insta. Link
Hi everyone! Welcome to the 32 episode of Nightly.
Today is 15 July 2018. It is a Sunday and I just came back from my run.
I am very excited about tomorrow because finally the day has come for my tattoo session. I am finally getting my Daruma tomorrow. I made the booking in April and waited 3 months for this. Will be sharing more pictures on my instagram. The only question I have in mind is that if I should have it in “marker style” -> will check with artist tomorrow for his opinion.
That’s for tattoo. Today, I like to talk about workaholism. I got a friend who keeps working and can never leave his phone. I am a little concern that his work is consuming him. You see there are several factors that lead to overworking.
- Motivational: Driven by intrinsic motivational is good. But if motivation is driven by fear from superior or company culture than it is not a good thing. Because you can never shut down
- Cognitive: Workaholics finds it hard to disengage from work. Feel uncomfortable when they are on a break.
- Behavioural: Workaholics tend to work beyond what is reasonably expected of them by their organization.
Most importantly we need to know that working 24/7 is not necessary a good thing. You do not give your brain a rest. How do you be more creative. Sometimes, the best idea comes when you are not thinking of it. In the end, you just end up being more stressful and you end up in a viscous cycle of producing bad work
I would not say that I am a workaholics. I was when I was running my own startup but not now. However, there was a period when I was stressed and I got myself into some wicked eczema. This was because it was the initial period I start reporting to the CEO. So I keep thinking of work and was very worry if I missed out stuff. That period, I keep myself 24/7 on the phone. It was shit.
Yoga and exercise help. I have learn that I cannot be engaged all the time. And you might want to do the same.
I shared about be being 背黑锅. In the role I’m in, I need to do some configuration on the system. These requests usually come from business stakeholders. This time round, I believe there is a miscommunication on both party but the fault falls on the person who do the configure. This is so WTF. #corporateshit
