About Winson Ng
I’ve had the best of both worlds KNOWING just how powerful our ‘Will’ and ‘intentions’ are… so when I stumbled into Internet Marketing as a 23 year old geek just after graduating with my Engineering Degree… something in my guts just KNEW I could do it.
I did the exact opposite of what the my friends and family told me to do. I knew that the Maverick Inside of Me, would never be unleashed and brought to the fullest potential if i followed and bowed down to conventional wisdom. In which, at that time, after my degree was to look for a good job with good financial security and benefits.
Of course, I failed MISERABLY for the first 10 months and experienced what it felt like to work, struggle, and endure constant challenges, obstacles, and set backs. And I am SO THANKFUL for that time words can’t even express it.
That time of failure, and defeat, taught me MORE about who I am than almost anything else. The reason why is… because I NEVER stopped.
Even amidst of what seemed like a ‘hopeless’ situation… I just NEVER stopped. I never stopped KNOWING that I could do it, and taking the correct action steps to make it happen.
I never stopped seeking solutions, I never stopped my unquenchable thirst for freedom. I never lost sight of my visions, my goals, and the higher purpose that i was meant to accomplish.
I didn’t turn away, and run off looking for security in the face of INSECURITY.
Aside from insecurity, if all of that pressure wasn’t enough, i encountered a serious accident during the same period in which i am not proud to express.
I accepted everything that was happening, I looked within myself, and I FOUND the inner strength to just keep going.
And if you do … your OWN Inner Strength will take you to some amazing places. All you have to do is look within, and really FIND IT, and it will manifest in certain ways.
Now and for always, i am devoting myself to this task of entrepreneurship, passionate about helping people turning their greatest strengths into a Successful online businesses. I am also taking this opportunity to explore my existing passion for Entrepreneurial start ups, Uplifting and Motivating people, and enhancing the Creativity & Innovative aspect of Think Maverick.
