Career Change: From Tech Consulting to Financial Planning
My career started in Technology Consulting after I completed my engineering degree. I was drawn to the fast-paced, work hard and play hard culture.
But ultimately, I found my true passion in financial planning as I wanted to make a more direct and lasting impact on people lives. So, 6 years later, I moved into financial planning.
The Bumpy Road: Lessons from My Investment Journey
Jumping into investing in my 20s, I thought, “With two engineering degrees, how tough could this be?” I imagined striking gold with the right stocks.
The reality, however, proved different. Despite my thorough studies of the markets and taking notes from investing legends like Warren Buffet and Peter Lynch, I had my fair share of ups and downs.
I didn’t really have a solid game plan I could stick to, and too often, I let the latest market buzz and my emotions get the better of me.

Why ‘Maslow’ Wealth?
I named it ‘Maslow’ Wealth as a nod to American psychologist Abraham Maslow, the visionary behind Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs.
His theory stresses fulfilling basic needs first, paving the way for higher aspirations and self-actualization. I’m particularly inspired by his words: “What one can be, one must be.”
In financial planning, this translates to establishing a stable foundation first. With essential financial needs met, you’re free to chase bigger dreams and goals. With ‘Maslow’ Wealth, we journey together, ensuring your finances fuel the fullest life possible.
