Yoooooooooo

Your reputation in SMU precedes you. Everyone knows how amazing your journey through education has been. And I must say I've been very intrigued by you.

Thank you for giving me that opportunity to work with you and witness everything I've heard first hand.

You of all people have the right to say nothing is impossible.

Passion
by: Andrea Di Fiore

Sometimes you can understand the perseveration of a person from how passionate you are. Sometimes you find entrepreneur who give up on good ideas just because they don't the idea is feasible and they lose opportunity. This is the reason why we need to keep on doing things we are in love with.

Full of lolzzzz.
by: Zaria

Hey Lizhen

Funny journal! It's such a pity that your group is not carrying on with the business, it's one of my favourite business idea in the class! And yes, I totally agree. I think if youre involved in setting up a business, you will think yeahh budgeting is easy, so is marketing. But now that we went through it, we realized how much work goes into it.

Anyway, good luck in your future endeavours!

Best time to take Tech. Entrepreneurship course?
by: Shawn

Hi Lizhen, you mentioned that your group wont be carrying on with the business as most of you are graduating. I certainly understand the situation your team members find themselves in as it is a similar situation that my team is facing.

Following what you mentioned, it also got me questioning if there is a so called "ideal" time to take up the Technological Entrepreneurship module. On further reflection, I suppose there is no such "ideal" time but rather there could exist an "ideal" group of people one might want to take the module with (i.e. people who you already know and who already are planning to set up a business together). In such circumstances, these people could also get feedback/advice from their classmates and professor on their business idea through the course, an added bonus since they are going to implement their business anyway. Just some thoughts of mine. Thanks for sharing your reflections!

boomz!
by: Jane Tan

Yo Lizhen!

It's great working with you and on behalf of everyone in LitBullPen, thank you once again for your hardwork.

I agree with you that one key factor to success is to persevere. Im sure u did when u tried to do the cashflow and sort out many costs.

Hope you have a great career ahead and a fulfilling life! :)

Hello Partner!
by: Jeanie

Hello Lizhen!

I'm glad you met Prof that day! Haha if not the both of us would still be stuck in that course! Thanks for the recommendation~

Zhen !! I feel that working together on this project with you have brought our friendship closer ! I think this is my first project with you? All the late night discussion, finance excel stuff not forgetting supper with the CEO was tiring but sure fun! We learnt about each others work ethics and how to compromise to reach a common goal :)

So happy that i made the switch too! I felt a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment after going through this course.

Accounting extraordinaire
by: Sanjay Nair

Hi Li Zhen,

I didn't know that was the way you decided to enroll in class. Anyway, you were a great group member to have and your number crunching skills were essential for our business plan.

You're right, perseverance and patience are key components behind a successful business. We should not get disheartened by short term setbacks and losses but instead see it as a learning curve to eventual success.

All the best in your accounting future and I hope to see you one day as a partner at one of the Big 4.

Patience..
by: Tianyi

Hi Lizhen,

I totally agree that a businessman needs patience, and alot of it.

I made my first dollar online after 3 months!

A lack of patience causes too many people to give up too early =(
