First of all, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read my posts and engaging with me. I’ve met some fantastic people since launching the blog. I’ve also received lots of funny, quirky and unusual e-mails from many of you. It’s been interesting! I look forward to meeting many more of you in the near future.
The communication exchange has greatly helped guide the makeup of my posts.
Secondly, I wanted to update you on the direction the blog is going to take starting very soon. I will be adding, in addition to posts similar to the ones which have already been published, a new type of post which will focus on strategies, hacks and tips relating to business and personal life. I believe they may be of use to you. You don’t have to be an investment banker to benefit and gain from that advice or draw useful conclusions from it. Even a blogger or entrepreneur could benefit from this new type of post. Whether you’re a high school or college student, working professional or backpacker some of the things I will post about could help you make more money, be more commercial and take advantage of resources available to you which you may not be aware of. They will be predicated on lessons I learned in recent years. To the extent possible, I will infuse them into stories based on my experiences. That way they’ll be more colourful and entertaining.
See, I believe that some of the ibanker practices I’ve come to learn can be very useful to others in their everyday life. These tactics which I’ve shared – offline – with friends and acquaintances helped them make more of a positive impact in their everyday life. Mainly on the work front because that was the nature of my discussions with them – I’m the ibanker after all :) The people included drama instructors, plant scientists, photographers, college students, film directors and more, not to mention people in business and finance. You could be an Associate working in an M&A team for a bulge bracket ibank; a gifted violinist looking to become more entrepreneurial; someone eager to break into ibanking; an individual who’s fed up with the corporate life and now intent on resigning from work in the big city in order to move to Bali where you will set up your own business. Hopefully, you’ll glean some useful nuggets from the posts.
Most people possess the resources, abilities and experience to create opportunities which enable them to experience new things, meet new people, create more wealth (whether 1 dollar or millions that is irrelevant) and have fun. But not everyone knows what needs to be done to get there. Like anything else worthwhile, it’s never easy and usually takes time.
As I mentioned above, I will continue writing posts like the ones you’ve seen thus far – that is, those which focus on the business of ibanking and some of the crazy stories that I’ve witnessed or experienced within.
Finally, I hope to continue learning as much from you in the future as I have till now.
All the best,
