I was interviewed about my business and traveling lifestyle for an article in the Heat, a weekly Malaysian newspaper three months ago… and the article has been published!
Here’s a part copied directly from the article about my advice:
Listen to your parents. That is Bethany Looi’s advice for young people who want to pursue their passion. “First, find out your purpose. Know what you want to do If you don’t know, you can’t aim for it. Listen to your parents. As teenagers, it is typical we don’t want to listen to them. A lot of my success is due to listening to my parents because they know more.
“Listen to your mentor. Get people to teach you: people you can rely on, who know more than you, and do what they tell you. Finally, be yourself. Hold on to what you believe in.” The teen entrepreneur says in an interview.
Asked how she stays motivated, Bethany says: “I believe if you have a purpose, there is no problem with motivation; it should just come. There are days I don’t feel motivated but this is my life now so I have to learn to enjoy it. If you don’t like it, change or learn to like it. You are in control of your life.”
If you’re in Malaysia, pick up a copy of the Heat and I’d love to know if you read the article!
