Summary

Looking back, I've never regretted following my heart when it came to making a bold career-changing move from my previous career. I always knew that what really matters is that I gave it my best shot. I have been involved in entrepreneurship activities in 2003 since I began my career as an academic staff of Politechnics Sultan haji Ahmad Shah, Kuantan. In 2015, I’m joining University Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) as a academics staff. In 2014 I have completed my PhD in Supply Chain Management at Universiti Malaysia Pahang. After finished my PhD,I have been actively involved in entrepreneurship and business activity within and outside of UMK. In 2016, I am being appointed by UMK management as Deputy Director at UMK Entrepreneurship Institute. During my administration, the total company registered at my centre is 278 and involved 700 students in business compared than the previous year is 16 company and 89 students.

IMPACT STORY

Impacting lifes

After finished my PhD,I have been actively involved in entrepreneurship and business activity within and outside of UMK. In 2016, I am being appointed by UMK management as Deputy Director at UMK Entrepreneurship Institute. During my administration, the total company registered at my centre is 278 and involved 700 students in business compared than the previous year is 16 company and 89 students. Apart from academic achievement, I am also professionally trained to become a “Professional Educator” under the 3EP Programme, Ministry of Higher Education(MOE) since 2017. I am also a “Qualified Trainer of MARA” since 2005, and Professional in Logistics and Supply Chain Business since 2018. My career aspiration is to become a successful person who can help students and other people in all means, especially in entrepreneurship development. One of my goals is to develop young entrepreneurs especially university students. To achieve, I will work very closely with all individuals within and outside of my university-related to entrepreneurship development of the countries. Another way is by educating myself first that way I can transfer my knowledge to various groups such as students, entrepreneurs, women, etc. I plan to become one of the best entrepreneurship mentors in UMK and possibly in Malaysia. With the help of my university, MOE and other individuals, I really hope my goals can be achieved one day. I always believed that, through entrepreneurship development programmes, I can do more to develop young entrepreneurs and help society create a better life and a better world.

LEARNINGS

Lessons learned

The complicated part is to fight yourself, meaning that to fight against negative attitude which comes from yourself. Second is to fight the negative things comes from outsiders. If we can overcome these elements, we will be success. And I’m always follow the person who succeeds in their career such as: (1) Mind Your Privilege-Put things in perspective. Never forget how privileged you are to start a business and even try and make your dreams happen in the first place (Abhi Lokesh of Fracture); (2) Celebrate Your Wins-Create a journal where each week, you record your business wins- those small things you tend to brush past as you move to the next item on the never-ending to-do list (Brandyn Campbell of Brandyn Campbell Communications); (3) Change Your Perspective-Think of this as more time to reinvent your business, brainstorm, perform a competitive analysis, work smarter, etc. Is a client giving you a hard time? (Bernard May of National Positions); (4) Take an Inspiring Course-When I'm unmotivated, taking an online course gets me excited about my business again and provides a fresh perspective that fuels my work (Chloe Brittain of Opal Transcription and Editing); and (4) Take a Look Around-When I feel that I'm not as motivated as I could be, I take a look around at those I admire for their accomplishments, especially my wife. Not only is she my wife/best friend, but she's also one of the more accomplished businesspeople I've met (Peter George of Peter George Public Speaking Inc).

FUTURE PLANS

What's coming?

To be the best educator, teaching styles and approach is not static. It must be dynamic and flexible to the situation. The innovation in teaching and business education is a very important element because the successful exploitation of new ideas is crucial to a business being able to improve its processes, bring new and improved products and services to market, increase its efficiency and, most importantly, improve its profitability. Fundamentally, innovation means introducing something new to your business. This could be: improving or replacing business processes with increasing efficiency and productivity, or to enable the business to extend the range of quality existing products or services, developing entirely new and improved products and services - often to meet rapidly changing customer or consumer demands or needs, and adding value to existing products, services or markets to differentiate the business from its competitors and increase the perceived value to the customers and markets. Innovation can mean a single breakthrough (totally new product or service). However, it can also be a series of small, incremental changes. Whatever form it takes, innovation is a creative process. The ideas may come from inside the business, e.g. from employees, managers or in-house research and development work outside the business, e.g. suppliers, customers, media reports, market research published by another organisation, or universities and other sources of new technologies. Success comes from filtering those ideas, identifying those that the business will focus on and applying resources to exploit them.
