Jacqueline Ng studied numerology which lead her to setting up her own business – Your Number, Your Profile, Your Destiny. 以人为本，以数为善
What’s your story?
I started learning numerology during my dark period. It was a time when I lost everything, including my pride, confidence and money. I had to face a bankruptcy and go through a pregnancy which I wasn’t expecting.
What excites you most about your industry?
It is a self-help tool for people to know ourselves and others. As well as to improve relationships and communications with people.
What’s your connection to Asia?
I am a born and bred Singaporean. Being a Singaporean has allowed me to connect with many people in Asia through numbers and the connections which I have made through the social media platform. Plus, I am able to speak both English and Mandarin.
Favourite city in Asia for business and why?
I like Beijing, China. I like the historical feel and it’s culturally rich people and environment. It is a city in which you will need to learn how to grow in and you will learn fast. The Chinese mindset of, “I will survive, I can and I must to live on!”
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
Be yourself, and be uncommonly unique.
Who inspires you?
What have you just learnt recently that blew you away?
Hard Work + Connection = Opportunity
Opportunity + Actions = Success
If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
If I could start all over again, I would still have learnt numbers (Numerology). I would not have seen failure as ‘Why me?’ but “Why not me?” I would have taken my failure and my past experiences as a learning platform and stairs to better cement myself for future mistakes. In the future I will stay humble, learn more, do greater work for a humanitarian cause and inspire others to think differently.
How do you unwind?
I love to be alone. I have learnt that being alone is best for one to reflect and review. It is an action which one needs to learn – to unwind and de-stress. Being lonely is a feeling one must learn to overcome and you can truly unwind when you relax your mind. Travelling, reading and watching Youtube.
Favourite Asian destination for relaxation? Why?
It has to be Japan. The food, people, scenery, onsen, shopping and 4 seasons of change. I love everything about Japan.
