Hello! Thank you for visiting Launchbyte Podcast.
When Chris and I first started, we wanted to an outlet to talk about tech. During that time Podcast still wasn’t a thing yet. Not as mainstream as it is now. We had to go into an actual recording studio to do a recording. It also gave me my first attempt into recording, making things and getting it out there.
Now there are tons of apps and service out there to help you make podcasts. Heck, you can even record straight from your phone. Anchor is a good example, they had just been acquired by Spotify.
Throughout the years there are lots of on and off in making the shows. It was really hard to stay committed especially with our work plus podcasts was not picking up too. However we did had a lot of fun, especially those crazy Youtube videos and you will never guess that we actually interviewed the Carousell Founders on our show before.
Since there are little updates, we have moved all our old shows onto Anchor. This makes maintenance easier too. One day, we can share with our kids the funny things we do.
So bye bye for now
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.
If you are a Facebook person, you can follow my progress here
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
Hello everyone! Welcome to A Nightly Show, an audio log about an average Singapore trying to breakout of the rat race. Not all sunshine and rainbows here. Sometimes the show is like a drama. Today, the sharing is about Aging, handling stress and about Manuka Honey.
Welcome to episode 29 of Nightly.
Nightly is a show about Life after work and also serves as my audio log about my journey out of the rat race.
My name is Bosslee and I am your host! How are you doing today? I made a stupid mistake today, I went for yoga class without bringing an additional top so I had a short sleeve shirt on during the class. 🤣
What trending Tuesday?
Facebook Live Auction
Not sure if you all got anything from there
I have not yet but most of my Facebook feed posts are Live Auctions.
This is a very interesting trend. Initially they were only selling kids shirts and all. Later on it moved to electronics, amulets, branded bags. I have also seen fresh food. I even have friend buying fresh seafood off from the auction. The host will take talk about the fish, people will bid competitively. To me this is is very much like those tv infomercials.
There are many to learn to from these auctioneers. They are able to move fast and break things. They do not care what kind of platform they use, their goal is only to sell. They have many tricks up their sleeves, asking for like and share in groups, doing lucky draws and sometimes using pretty ladies as their host. This is not to say that only having ladies have host will succeed. There are also auctions with male hosts who are super funny.
I like to say that they are the real entrepreneurs. They do not think too much, they work towards a single metric and that is to sell. Make money.
What do you think? Is your Facebook feed showing these live auctions, have you buy from these auctions. I love to hear from you.
You can find me on Facebook at Launchbyte.

Hello everyone! Welcome to the 28th episode of Nightly! My name is bosslee and I am your host. Nightly is a podcast that talks about life after work and it also serves as my audio log. Today I’m talking about a lifestyle I’m pursuing and that’s minimalism.
Three things I learn from being an minimalist.
1/ it’s not cheap to be an minimalist because quality shirts that would last a life time cost you.
2/ it does not mean that you buy less and have less. It means only owing stuff that brings value to your life.
3/ Finally, my motto if you don’t use it, lose it. When you have less in your life, everything becomes easier. Easier to let go, easier to move around, easier to change.
Welcome to the episode 27 of Nightly My name is Bossle and I am your host
It’s been a while since I did this show. The truth is I got lazy. This is like climbing a mountain. When you are preparing for it, you are super excited. but when you realised that you need to do the training so that you can complete the course, you get lazy. This is me right now. Plus recently, I got a little complacent and started to add more things to my plate.
Here are some of the things I am trying to juggle now
- AHM in August
- Learning Thai Basic 1
- Still trying to figure out how to make a passive income; either with 123Superherbs, selling stuff online
- Added an e-commerce forum onto my plate
- Still have to manage my work & of course family
- Lastly I have this podcast itself
So trying to do too much and I need to start saying NO Plus having to face the music of giving up some stuff
Yes. I f**k up
So I’m going to remove away two things from my list
And adding deadlines
- Nightly is going to stop at 100 episodes
- e-commerce Forum project is going to be the focus for next 3 months 30 Sep
Hello Everyone! Welcome to the 26th Episode of Nightly. My name is Bosslee and I am your host. Sa wa dee Krup! Learning Thai now and it sure is a very fun language to learn.

Super proud to be the nation to be hosting this. Finally talking about the buying behavior for large ticket item, do you use desktop or mobile?

Hello! Welcome to the 22nd episode of Nightly. My name is Bosslee and I am your host. A year ago, when I started working for the Bossman. I told myslef, a year is the limit. A year has come and pass, I have not left the bossman. What happened? How can I better comprehend my risk on hand? How can I get back into my selling grove?
I keep asking myself
“if not now, when?”
“if not you, how?”
But the devil in me, keep saying. What about the risk?
