Lessons Learnt From Daddy Daycare The Movie

image

Photo credit: @Entrepreneur Official Facebook Account

It was years when The Daddy Daycare movie was out. Back then I saw the movie as a ‘Family Get Together’ kind-of movie.

Now I am seeing the movie in a different light and from a different prespective. I see Daddy Daycare as a Lesson to be learnt by Newly Established Entrepreneurs (and newly parents who joined the ParentHood Club ;)) Here are some Key Points I learned from the movie:-

1. FEAR
We are so used to the security of having a safety net placed below our feet (receiving salary each month as an employee) in the Wild Wild Jungle (9 to 5 work environment) out there.

We are so confortable in our comfortzone that we are literally afraid of something new or something different, it feels OUT OF THE NORM to us. Thus, we develop :-

1. FEAR of uncertainty
2. FEAR of Failure
3. FEAR of experimenting with something new
4. FEAR of challanges and facing unfamiliar territories
5. FEAR of staring somewhere new

In the movie, Eddie Murphy plays a  character of a Work-ka-holic Father who works endless hours for a Food Manufacturer who manufactures Cereals for Children. He works more than the usual 9 to 5 hours but less time with the loved ones. He is investing his time building a career and professional development for his Home. But a Home that he seldom lives in. He comes home from Work and has to bring work home (talk about Home-Work 😂) and his time at home is focused on Work and paying the bills.

After his department was down-sized than only did he realised that the safety net was pulled right under his feet. Because he invested so much time sewing the safety-net that he did not have time to think of PLAN B. “What if the net no longer exsisted, should I get a parachute?” 😱

2. SEE A NEED, FILL A NEED
Eddie Murphy (in the play) was thinking of ways on how to earn income from home as he had to take care of Home and also take care of his little boy. At this stage, you can see the DNA of an Entrepreneur slowly growing and crashing into each other to spark an Idea. Than the Idea was formed when He was at the park observing mothers who had to take their children to the park. And listening to the sourroundings on how Mothers were looking for a daycare that was within the comfort of the neighbourhood. That Idea soon became a Reality.

3. PASSION
After many ups and downs, many trials and errors, Daddy Daycare was soon growing, from a few kids to 10 kids, then to 12 kids then to 15 kids. The word got around and then they were beating the competition. Daddy Daycare was built on a foundation of Passion. If you have PASSION you can do anything, nothing in your way could stop you. Even if it means having a mean offer to return back to work with a whole new job description, higher pay and being head of department 😇 Yes! Its true, that temption is out there. There are times you might doubt yourself. But if being an Entrepreneur is already in your DNA, already apart of your flesh. Then nothing can change your mind.

If if Eddie Murphy (in the movie) return to work with a new offer. That very first day he knew within himself (betcha he could feel it in his bones) that his heart was being the Founder & CEO of Daddy Daycare. Because he believed in his Mission, Vission and Core Values.

4. VISION
Having a clear picture of what you wanna do, what you wanna be, what your company will be apart of, the foundation of your company all lies within the Vision that you have. Your sub-consious mind is more powerful than you could ever imagine.

5. PLAN
Plan while you are ahead?
Execution is very important and same goes with planning. For the end result that you desire, ensure that you do planning, brainstorming, survey, research and development before rolling the ball.

The ending of the movie is really inspiring. In real world, business and companies around the world go through upa and downs. Its making sure that you have enough passion, determination and motivation to girl from the starting line to the finish line.

Above all, having the right MINDSET and ATTITUDE is also a MAJOR contributor to the development of your company. Your company cannot grow it your are not willing to run that extra mile.

Till we next time.

Eid Mubarak : Then and Now

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin. A blessed Eid Mubarak to all and may you have a blessed Eid.

As much as I am sad that Ramadhan has gone. And praying that I we will see next Ramadhan InsyAllah, ameen ameen Ya Rabb. This year Eid Mubarak I have had the chance to see, experience and feel the different aura and environment of how Eid (Hari Raya as we like to call it here in Brunei) is celebrated outside of Brunei. This year we managed to visit Kota Kinabalu. My husband’s relative is located in Papar and we had the chance to visit the neighbouring country. We witness on how Hari Raya was celebrated there. Despite the different culture and traditions, you can still sense the Hari Raya spirit in the air. With music of hari raya songs blazing in the shopping complexs, hari raya songs of new and old playing back to back on the Radio stations. And meeting old faces of long distance relative makes the heart warm. The food is oh so my…a mixture of sweet, spicy and tangy of different varities of home-cooked meals. What touched me the most the scene of when we returned from KK to return to my husband’s aunt place (as we were staying there overnight). Its was past 12am ish and the streets were dark (literally dark as there is no street lamps) and the brightest house on the very end welcomed us of cheer, children playing fireworks, bright & colorfull festive lights and relatives from each corner of the village welcomed us with such hospitality and kindness. The warmth of the moment melted my heart away as it had brought me to a flashback moment of my childhood in the 90s and how we celebrated Hari Raya.

Back in the 90s
When I was growing up, the joy and cheer of Hari Raya can be felt as the environment was filled with young children visited every home on the street and was invited in for a glass of cold beverages, cookies of all kinds and of course, green packs for each child. The cheer of lighting fireworks during the night, the spirit of spring-cleaning the homes and re-arranging the living rooms for family and friends to get comfortable during their visits. Sights if the males going to mosques to perform their prayers and giving Zakat.

Now in the 21st Century
Now in our Era, many things have changed. There are less visits by the children, as there are all grown-up now. And more into virtual games then fireworks. Huhu. And the tradition of what used to be our joy of walking to visit our neighbours have now slowly faded. But on the other hand the Traditional Family portraits are now made of selfies and wefies, which is hip and kinda fun. Capturing moments that you can store at the palm of your hand and you can see them whenever you like.

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies.

As the ages come and gone. There are much differance of Hari Raya then and now . Apart from aging each year, I feel that some traditions are slowly fading. Hoping that youth will still carry on the true meaning of Eid Mubarak (Hari Raya). That is asking for forgiveness, being thankful that we are still well and alive and not forgetting to give to those who have less.

Here The Deens would like to wish everyone a blessed Eid Mubarak.

Blogging 101: Day 7 – Keepin it Real by personalizing your blog

Its been almost a week since I took up the free blogging course by The Blogging University : The Daily Post. For today’s post is to create a personalize blog by creating a fun, wicked header image.

If you have read through my blog, you will notice that only recently I took blogging serious. Previously I was blogging to share on my experience, self-experiments and sharing on products that I loved and enjoyed consuming on a daily basis. That is food & health supplements. This year I took the iniative to step-up the blogging game by focusing more in-depth on what I hope and wish for my blog to acheive by the end of this year. And one of the ways is by joining this free online course that is conducted by The Daily Post : Blogging University.

Now we at day 7. What I wanna share is how I created my Header Picture. Back in 2012, I named my blog ‘TwentyFirst Century Momma’ because my focus back then was to sell breastfeeding accessories and share motherhood journey and experiences. Only recently this year, I decided to purchase the Domain dot.com (.com) and changed my blog domain from wordpress.com to 21stcenturysarah.com. The roots and foundation of why I created this blog will still remained rooted which is Motherhood, Breastfeedings, being a Bookworm, Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness will always stay close to my heart. By investing my time into how my blog layout, images, topics and content is very important to me. And I wanted to ensure the origins of my blog is pure and closet to its natural origin (real, honest and close to the truth). My header I chose a customize image from Canvas Image Editor where you can select FREE open source images.

My header tagline is ‘The Purest Of It’s Origin Is At It’s Core’. This statement I had as my MSN Status (yes back in the day when I used MSN to chit-chat). The story of how this favourite motto of mine came to mind was when I was looking for a unique phrase to express the self-discover I had back then in the year 2007. A self journey to wearing the Hijab full-time. Until now, this motto of mine has a special place in my heart.

Now this year, am hoping to keepin it real on my blog by personalizing my blog with bits and pieces that represents me (in someway). And at the same time hoping to get inspiration from others bloggers on how they conduct the placement of the logos, headers and headerlines and tagline. Can’t wait to surf the posts.

Today we had another business session and Product Knowledge sharing on BB Plus Collagen.

Alhamdulilah, after advertising some of my posters to share and show opportunities to youth of Brunei on the possibilities of earning passive income via online or using social media platforms. I have received overwhelming responses on how to make the first step or using this as a stepping stone towards stepping outside your comfortzone.

Many have asked me. (And I get this one a lot) Why do I want to join an MLM company as part of my business plan?

Why MLM?
Since I was in highschool, my bestfriend’s parents (since the 4th grade) parents were always active, travelling, conducting meetings, going for convections. Only when I was in the 7th grade did I learned that their vacations were all-expences-all-paid vacations. Then I got to learned that they joined an most reputational MLM company in Brunei. For severals years I have seen them travel and setting up meetings. Back then I had little knowledge on this kind of business. But the thrill of being able to travel the world and meet new people was something somewhat exciting to me.

After getting married, they were few people who offered me the same offer in this very same MLM company that my best friend parents joined. But after hearing many bad experiences from people around me. My first impression of MLM business or any MLM company is always negative. Whenever some people approach me with a MLM Business Plan, I would hear them out but my heart was always closed. I remember a saying, “The mind needs to make discovers of its own”.

Then in 2010, alhamdulilah my heart was opened to a possibility of business opportunity with MLM. This time around, the approach was different. It was the approach of sharing. A close friend of mine was testing a product and she was able to obtain benefit from the product that she consumed. And soon became a local reseller for that specific brand. Later in a few months time did I realise that the company was a MLM based company. After that my whole prespective of business flipped to a 360 degress change. Then only I learned why people joined MLM:-

1. Products
When people love the products, they will share positive feedback, comments or even their real-life experiences on their journey with the products. And they will become loyal customers because they believe in the brand.

2. System
The first thing when joining any MLM company, you will be asking ‘What’s is it in for me?’ You will need to first look at the system and how much on the following:-

A. Bonus Points
B. Points to acheive to move up the rank (promotions)
C. Travel Incentives
D. Car Incentives
E. Downline members and Team Network

When you are comfortable with the system. Then you will look at other prespectives such as:-

3. History and Founder
A. Who is the owner of the MLM company
B. Mission & Vission

4. Business Plan
A. Having your very own mission / vision board.
B. Business rank target (which rank do you wish to acheive and when)
C. Product target (products you wish to acheive)
D. Daily target
E. Weekly Target
F.Monthly Target

5. Mentorship
Choose your Team, look for a team that has the same values and commitments as you. When you focus on the same target and same mission. You will be on the same wave-length.

With any decisions that we make, remember:-

D : Doa (plenty of Doas)

U: Usaha (Action plan)

I: Istiqamah (commitment)

T: Tawakal (submission)

Thats all for now folks!

Sleep tight,

Much Love
