inspitories xv: diet234

Inspitories is my made up word for inspirational stories on young people I find interesting. They are usually interviews of other Entrepreneurs like myself whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, stumbled upon online or dug up that motivate me. Enjoy and get inspired!

Once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur. I’ve known this young man for over ten years, and he’s always been quite enterprising. Interestingly, this classmate-turned-close friend has a story quite similar to mine – he’s an FGCL alumnus, ex-medical school student and serial entrepreneur. The only different is he’s just a little bit taller than me lol. On a serious note, he’s quite ambitious, business-minded, intelligent, and constantly improving himself by learning a new skill. He’s quite charismatic and very passionate about health and fitness, and that sparked his newest venture.
