Giving Over Receiving
Giving back to the community should be the utmost priority for an entrepreneur. The act does not necessarily mean just financially; it can come from helping the community grow, building leaders in the industry, and assisting competitors in developing. For JJ Phang, unity is the keystone towards his establishment of Phang & Partners.
United We Stand
“Contributing” is a quality eminently associated with JJ. This trait is respectably noticeable as most of his conversation revolves around growing and liberating the people of his community. He believes capable leaders build thriving economies. Hence, JJ is always at the forefront of nurturing new leaders in his community.
JJ advocates that an entrepreneur who can unite his team is a phenomenal leader. Today’s business language is not about competition anymore but instead collaboration. This mindset led JJ to nurture his business, bringing more than 150 business people together in Malacca. His willingness to give and serve has led him to create more opportunities for himself and the entrepreneurs in his surroundings. What I am really impressed with JJ is he aspires to bring impact to 500 families in Malacca by 2024.
A special moment shared with JJ was during the distribution of goods to the needy at a charity event. While not uncommon, many have taken the act of charity as just a publicity stunt. However, in JJ’s case, it was indeed a moment of compassion to aid the less fortunate. He was genuinely concerned about the people and assisted them to the best of his ability. The spirit of infinitely giving is what truly makes JJ the most memorable and awe-inspiring.
Congratulations JJ, for this fantastic achievement! I eagerly await our next collaboration to create more leaders in Malaysia and impact more lives and families.
