A Monthly Curated Newsletter

In meeting the demands of work and every day life, many of us can feel compelled to do all things at once, and may become overwhelmed or less effective as a result. To counter this, it is worth taking a moment to adjust our pace; to give ourselves the space to practice taking one step at a time in the ways we perform our tasks and how we manage our minds & emotions.

Single-Tasking for Productivity and Stress Management

I used to be a big fan of multi-tasking when it became a popular strategy for productivity. The idea of doubling productivity by doing multiple things at once is quite appealing for busy people, and these days most of us are busy people. However, several studies show that in most cases, multi-tasking can negatively affect productivity and efficiency. Here's how.

Patience is essential to daily life—and might be key to a happy one. Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity—i.e., nearly everywhere—we have the opportunity to practice it.

Lisa G.

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!

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.
