Growing up is no easy task, but it’s a good time to be in Malaysia because our country is giving a lot of opportunities for blooming and motivated entrepreneurs! I mean, there’s Cradle, MaGIC and so much more!

Going down the entrepreneurial route is not the easiest thing in the world. It takes plenty of hard work, patience, endurance and more often than not, you’ll fail more than you’ll succeed when you first try to run a business.

However, don’t let that stop you from trying harder! Some of the most famous and successful Malaysian entrepreneurs like Jimmy Choo, Tony Fernandes, Robert Kuok and many others started out at zero too. Most of them were just ordinary people like you and me.
