A Monthly Curated Newsletter

As we begin a fresh year, it is a good idea to not just evaluate ourselves based on the previous year on how we have been managing our lives, but also to find out ways to become more productive as we move along. In this issue, I'd like to share with you some powerful ideas on productivity and how we can make the best of our resources, time, energy and capabilities. Let's do this!

Why "Done is Better Than Perfect" by Sheryl Sandberg

The CEO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, has one of the best success quotes to live by: Done is Better Than Perfect. The innovative products that we know are constantly evolving; and we're not likely to ever reach perfection as no one has. Instead, getting things done is more important than being perfect, and this applies to various areas in our lives.

Creating Time: How to Master the Art of Intentionality

Global economic indicators suggest that despite the additional hours that people work daily, outcomes remain low. Everyone is busy — but that isn’t necessarily translating into productivity. According to Harvard University researchers, our attention wanders away from what we’re doing 46.9% of the time. For both leaders and employees, that’s half the work day. Half a day of not being fully present with tasks and people. This lack of presence is costly.

Testimonials and Referral Notes

Lisa

Ruth has been my consultant for years now. Although I met her by chance, I am happy for that! I feel that she genuinely cares about and wants to make a real connection with her client. She would listen to my concerns before trying to provide a solution. She is patient in explaining and finding middle ground between minimising my future risk and ensuring my comfort and confidence on the plan. I also appreciate that she gives her client enough space and time to think and consider about the financial plan throughout the process. Thanks Ruth!

Joann Ong. Manager

I like that Ruth is genuine, honest and patient. She doesn’t hard sell, but instead she suggests the best possible plans that cater to my needs. She is very precise in her presentation and is always able to breakdown complex topics into simplified conversation. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Mei Ying & Terence

We met Ruth to review the multitude of insurance policies that we already had. Having bought them some time ago, we were unsure of our existing coverage and wanted to know if they were adequate and how we could make plans for our growing family. Ruth explains our policies in a way that was so easy to understand and recommended us policies that catered to our specific needs. She has also been really approachable and prompt in responding to any questions - important qualities anyone would want in an financial consultant! We have nothing but compliments for her and would highly recommend her to friends and family!

Dr Claris Shi. Ministry of Health

I usually shy away from Financial Consultants but Ruth was so friendly and genuine, and didn’t laugh at my lack of financial planning knowledge! She took time to go through all my policies and identified areas where I needed coverage. She definitely goes above and beyond her call of duty and is so easy to talk to when I have any questions.

Catherine Lim. Key Accounts Manager

I have known Ruth for years, from a colleague to a dear friend. During her 5-year tenure in the MNC we worked together, she had changed several bosses and almost every time that happened, she would be given a different portfolio to handle. Each time she saw it as an opportunity to grow instead of dwelling in self-pity how challenging the role was or how established she had been in the current role. When I knew she became a Financial Consultant and asked if she could review my plans, she agreed immediately. She is someone I trust and she has my best interest at heart. Since then, she has been constantly updating me on plans or investments that might interest me. Ruth is quick to respond and will always give sound advice on financial related issues. Call Ruth now. You won't regret.

Crystalbel Foo. Public Service Officer

Ruth has an excellent work ethic and always goes the extra mile for her clients — I had spent close to a year looking for a Financial Consultant who could address my concerns before I met Ruth! Would definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a Financial Consultant (and friend) whom you can plan your life milestones with.
