"E-book" on AK the investor in 7 chapters.

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Over the years, I received several requests from the media for interviews. 

Due to the fact that I would only do these interviews in disguise, these interviews did not materialize.

I am a very private person. There is no reason good enough for me to sacrifice something as valuable as privacy. 

OK, maybe, if someone were to offer me $1 million, I would consider. I am only half kidding. Seriously.

Anyway, when I received another request recently and apparently this is going to be a campaign in collaboration with Temasek Holdings, I offered them a series of blogs that tells my story instead. 

I don't know if they will use them but I thought I could organize the blogs into an "e-book" to share with my readers too and here it is.

Chapter 1:
My family almost went bankrupt.

Why am I the way I am? 

We are all products of our past experience.

Chapter 2:
Life was difficult and I wondered if Santa existed.

Be self-reliant. 

No one is going to help us if we don't help ourselves.

Chapter 3:
To retire by 45, start with a plan!

What I have today started with a plan.

Want to achieve financial freedom? Have a plan.

Chapter 4:
Secret of my success.

Our philosophy in life will guide all our decisions.

Having the right philosophy is essential.

Chapter 5:
6 digits annual passive income.

It is mostly a lot of work but luck plays a part.

This is the honest truth.

Chapter 6:
How to make $1 million investing for income.

Do the right things and time will do the rest.

Be patient.

Chapter 7:
A wealth building strategy that has worked.

We cannot predict but we can prepare.

I will be happy if my story is able to inspire many more readers to seek financial freedom.

Alamak, is Temasek getting ready to offload some of their "valuable" portfolio stocks to us retail investors?
Should we run?

Hi Laurence,

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I blur. -.-"

Hi AK,

I believe I've heard about the collaboration as well :) However, I agree very much to this - Privacy is priceless.

Hi SD,

I am not a fame seeker.

I am quite partial to fortune but not fame.

I shall leave the fame seeking to other people. ;p

Hi Ak71,

I like your chapter 2 to 7 and I am lucky not to experience the chapter 1.
Thanks for compiling such a great e-book.

AK71 said...


I don't like Chapter 1 of the "e-book" either. :(

Do you have any article to recommend for reading which I could perhaps emulate what you are already doing?
I know it will not constitute into any form of recommendation and I bear full responsibility for any outcome of my decision.

AK says...
Don't emulate.
Create your own plan.
I will share my story with you.
