Think Big, Dream Big, Believe Big



The multi-level marketing (MLM) field grows and the companies are multiplying everywhere all over the world and because of this trend, most people are becoming MLM distributors and busy building their own realm. Network marketing is all about “People’s Business” It’s about needs, dreams and aspirations. The MLM industry is also gaining momentum and growing tremendously in terms of health and wealth.

Phyto Science Sdn Bhd is a MLM company that promotes good health through live cell therapy that was incorporated in Malaysia since August 2012. In just a short span of 18 months after its inception, Phyto Science monthly sales revenue has surged to RM40 million, making it one of the top MLM companies in Malaysia. As Phyto Science is growing bigger and bigger, it has massively expanded its trademark and famous slogan “We Are The Trend Maker” throughout Malaysia and 13 other Asian countries – Singapore, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, Philippines, Hong Kong, Macau, China, Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Brunei and Dubai. It was reported that Phyto Science has created 70 millionaires within two years time and have more than 750,000 members.

The founder of Phyto Science Sdn Bhd is Yang Bahagia Tan Sri Dato Sri Lai Teck Peng, a Malacca-born who has an affable personality. He has proven that patience and years of perseverance are the attributes for success. Phyto Science emphasizes strongly in building the well-being of its distributors, customers, partners and staff. Phyto Science also holds the belief and philosophy of “Your Success Is Our Success” and shares on high-priced, emotional and eye-opening grand rewards that no other networking company can possibly match or commit.

From a humble beginning, YB Tan Sri began making his own living at the age of 18. He has struggled along his youth by selling insurance policies from door to door but he never gave up hope and his beliefs, instead he continued to work harder and determined to succeed. He said, “My father used to give me a lot of motivation and confidence to achieve what I wish to achieve in life and keep striving. I desired great success and big achievements”. From there he ventured into the MLM industry where he has increased his exposure to all kinds of people and marketing strategies.

After 21 years of experience and exploration, YB Tan Sri began to have a “vision”. Seeing that the MLM business networking is feasible and enthralling, Tan Sri and his beautiful wife YB Puan Sri Datin Sri Ela had decided to create their own brand in the MLM industry and so Phyto Science Sdn Bhd was born.

Phyto Science is the biggest success and triumph for YB Tan Sri. He believed in his vision, he pursued the goals and he made his dreams come true by building his team into a networking empire. Not long after that YB Tan Sri has proudly launched the opening of their own building – Wisma Phyto Science in Bandar Baru Bangi. The stunning five star building has various facilities such as Phyto Customer Service Centre, Phyto Media, Phyto Cafeteria, Phyto Library, Phyto Playground, Phyto Gallery, Trend Maker Ballroom & Training Rooms, Surau for Male & Female and VIP car park for super cars.

Phyto Science’s mission is to empower the lives and well-being of business partners, members, customers and staff with the highest quality, scientifically proven and clinically researched products, innovative and best business opportunities. Phyto Science is a company that focuses sincerely on helping people to increase their health as well as wealth. It’s an investment of time, beliefs, patience and efforts and the result – Phyto Science business can make a difference by increasing health and wealth.

For YB Tan Sri Dato Sri Lai, the greatest impact and transformation of his life over the short period of time is simply astounding but not surprising to him because he had a clear vision for the success in MLM industry and the outcome he predicted was accurate in the networking business. Transformation is a bold promise to make but in Phyto Science they do with full confidence. YB Tan Sri foresees that Phyto Science will continue to achieve greater goals and make more inroads in this industry in the near future. Evidently Phyto Science is the right platform for everyone who is serious about health and wealth! Phyto Science is not Malaysian-focused anymore according to YB Tan Sri. He says, “We have a bigger mission with an equally enormous vision and we are convinced that Phyto Science and its famous slogan “We are the Trend Maker” will be extended to global markets internationally.”

Phyto Science is always very busy organizing corporate events throughout the year, one of the major event is “Trend Maker Recognition Day”. This year Phyto Science will be organizing the 2nd “Trend Maker Recognition Day” in Penang at the SPICE (Pisa) Indoor Stadium and targeted to attract about 10,000 audiences.

Phyto Science’s true constituency is also consuming the hopeful investors from abroad. YB Tan Sri Dato Sri Lai is planning for more projects in many years to come.

Accolades under its belt, Phyto Science Sdn Bhd was awarded “The Largest Stemcell User” in South East Asia for Year 2013, “The Largest Stemcell User” in South East Asia for Year 2014, and The 14 Asia Pacific Top Excellence Brand 2014 and 2015.

Phyto Science Sdn Bhd is a global health and wellness company stands at the forefront of product innovation and committed to helping people take control of their health, both physical and financial well-being. Phyto Science conducts 50% of its business online making purchasing of products a seamless experience. Consumers and members place their order online, and the company delivers the goods to their doorstep. Within a short period of two years, Phyto Science is now a multi-million dollar company, making it one of the top MLM companies in Malaysia with its popular stemcell product range.

Phyto Science is not only business-focused but also very community-focused. Over the past two years much donations have been given out to charities, associations, mosques, hospitals, orphanage, etc. On 12th Jun 2015, Phyto Science Sdn Bhd organized “Phyto Angel Convoy Charity” in Kuantan which was a great event for good cause. More than 100 members participated and commemorated this event which started from Bangi and all the way to Hotel Vistana Kuantan.

A visionary entrepreneur, YB Tan Sri has never compared his business plans with his competitors. Instead he stuck to his principles, chased his dreams and pursued his mission! He also advised that for building high performing teams is to believe, to be confident and to be determined. YB Tan Sri says, “Think big, dream big, believe big and the results will also be big.” This is the formula for his success today.

According to YB Tan Sri, good leadership comes from a person who prompts, stimulates and motivates people into creating their success stories. “People honour and look up to a good leader”. Everybody looks up to YB Tan Sri because of his good leadership, affections and humility – the great mentor for all Phyto infants.

YB Tan Sri, the hands-on strategist, also mentions that one should not look back and live in the past but to concentrate on present and on what the future holds. Its no wonder the MLM mogul has so much to share with us on his achievements, record- breaking results and milestones through the Internet. He believes that the Phyto Science benchmark will always stay brilliant and excellent in the networking business and the trade-mark will always remain extraordinary in the MLM industry.

Tan Sri Dato Sri Lai Teck Peng is a winner of the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards 2015 Malaysia, under the Outstanding Category. The Awards were held on 27th August 2015 at InterContinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


“When Adam Draper does Crypto Standup, Singapore listens”



I live and work in Singapore and Santa Monica. Yes, I am blessed. However, my life has been by design, I think of what I want and so I make my life choices and make them happen in my life. Hence the bi-continent living and that comes with bi-continent and now global community living, being and ecosystems building. So I am now never surprised when one part of my world meets another.

I went to Wavemaker Partners venture capital event this evening, keen to meet Adam Draper, who is one of the many great presenters at Crypto Invest Summit, April 30- May 2 in Los Angeles.

Since I actively support leaders who are building scalable, sustainable businesses and movements for the betterment of many; of course I am learning about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. I had been keen to report on the Crypto Invest Summit as I would be back in May to LA for my PhD programme. I was in communications with the organizers. However, I am being awarded an award at the Women Economic Forum in Delhi that same week and could not be physically present.

Still I wanted to report on the event, somehow.

I wanted to listen to the speakers and support some of the speakers who are already friends and experts I rely on for greater insights on cryptocurrency. I like learning and sharing with the greater audience, I have in Asia what I am learning from the US and vice versa. So I feel I had my chance tonight to do a bit of that.

I could not help but smile as Adam Draper shed light into his world of investing in more than 85 crypto related products because he was such a breath of fresh air to the last few Blockchain and Financial conferences I have been reporting on; especially here in Asia.

He just says it like it is.

He kept stopping the audience when they said Blockchain and he said, “You know you really mean cryptocurrency.”  He hit the nail on the head because I have seen so clearly how this phrase had been said in Singapore time and again – “I am not into cryptocurrency but I believe in Blockchain.”

When he said how there was an incongruity as he sat across bankers who personally invested in cryptocurrency and when faced with an inbound of requests from their clients on the same investment; are tied by regulations and are unable to respond.

Here’s some of his best lines. If you don’t laugh or “ah-ha” the way I did, you probably just had to be there. The truth is funny because it calls out for something we all see but sometimes just do not want to admit.

There is a growing understanding of the underlying thematics that the cryptocurrency world has been experiencing as the interface between centralize; de-centralize and personal autonomy becomes more and more apparent and lines get drawn.

Adam Says:

1) The newest phenomenon is that some of the ICO founders are now just so rich from their ICOs that they really don’t need to work on the project they asked for money for.

2) For the crypto-world, money doesn’t matter anymore!
They need talent

It’s so founder friendly now.

3) What Bitcoin made us ask is “What is money?”

The next question is “What is government and governance?”

He highlighted if an entrepreneur is looking for a problem to solve., then the entrepreneur is always looking for horrible industries with poor services and high costs. So yes – Governments are those horrible industries and they need to be disrupted.

4)  Any company who comes to an investor and leads with how much ICO has raised; is a red flag. Leave immediately and go read a Harry Potter book instead.
If they are leading with value and not the problem they are solving. Beware. (read more here

5) If you are going to invest in where the brains are. It’s in crypto.

6) Philosophically, Coinbase is against ethos of what Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency movement is trying to do. However to do such a move from fiat to digital currency, there would need a way to do that. So Coinbase acts like a browser does for internet. One day there will be no need to cash in or out as everyone is already there on digital. Cryptocurrency is the exchange of value. His advice and we know his bias as he is invested in  Coinhako; is to hold onto an exchange for 3-5 years since onboarding of all users to the new digital currency will take some time.

Adam met with many banks and government bodies on his trip to Singapore – I hope they got his truths.

I ended the night by thanking Adam for making me laugh. He reminded me of how much I miss LA.

Want more of this?

If you are in LA on April 30 – May 2.

Adrian Reid, Founder of Enlightened Stock Trading



Adrian Reid escaped the rat race and became a knowledgeable trader. He now shares his trading knowledge and empowers others to take control of their stocks.

What’s your story?
After working 12-16 hour days in the corporate world for many years I had a moment of realisation on the 1 hour bus ride to work. It was here at this moment in time, I realised that I felt trapped, desperate and isolated. Trapped in a job I hated, and a life I had not designed. I had long been interested in investing, but I made the decision at that point to become the best trader I could possibly be and escape the rat race.
My dream was to be free; free of the 9 to 5, the commute, the stress and the exhaustion. I threw myself into my stock trading research and study and emerged 3 months later with the trading rules that would ultimately buy me my freedom. I am now retired from the corporate world, I trade full time and share my knowledge with other aspiring traders through my online education program which puts them in control and empowers them to take control and accountability for their trading results.

What excites you most about your industry?
So many people are trapped in jobs they don’t like or are feeling immense financial pressure in their life. Trading education is typically done extremely badly today because of the conflicts of interest in the industry. Fund managers want to hold onto your money forever; brokers want you to trade more frequently; forex brokers want you to use more leverage. Why? Because that is how they make their money.
By teaching traders how to develop and test their own stock trading systems I am able to empower them to find trading rules which fit their own personality, objectives and lifestyle. This is the only way for new traders to be successful. This process transforms people’s financial future, their relationship with money and wealth and gives them hope. I love that!

What’s your connection to Asia?
I recently spent 3 years living in Singapore which I absolutely loved. This put me in a good position to observe the other Asian markets. As a stock trader I am interested in many markets and economies around the world, however the Asian markets have some of the best potential for trading profits. I have traded stocks in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo and I have developed trading systems that work in many other Asian markets as well.

Favourite city in Asia for business and why?
My favourite city is Singapore. After living in Singapore for 3 years my family fell in love with the city. Life is great in Singapore for the whole family and the pro-business and investing policies of the government make it a wonderful place to build your financial future as well.

What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
On a personal front: Find something you love, throw all your energy and passion into it.
On the wealth front: Spend less than you earn and invest the difference. Take control of your finances and always accept 100% responsibility for your investment decisions.

Who inspires you?
My wife Stephanie inspires me. Her commitment to everything she does, her compassion, her insights into people and her ability to uplift those around her, make me want to be a better person.

What have you just learnt recently that blew you away?
No matter what we think we know, there will always be a different perspective that can change our opinion. In my own trading, I continually find that the truths I cling to are not absolute and they can be misleading if held onto dogmatically. Striking a balance between taking a stance and knowing when to change that stance based on new information is critical in all areas of life.

If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
I would have taken more action earlier on. My fear of mistakes (which still limits me on occasions, like most people) has always proven to be baseless. Playing small to avoid the embarrassment or pain of mistakes is very limiting and I would have taken more action earlier, if I had my time again.

How do you unwind?
To unwind I like to read, meditate, run and ride my mountain bike in the forest.

Favourite Asian destination for relaxation? Why?
I just love the small island resort at Batu Batu. It is beautiful, isolated, quiet and surrounded by clean water, full of sealife. After a week at the resort I felt like a different person.

Everyone in business should read this book:
The Pyramid Principle by Barbara Minto. This book teaches the art of clear and structured communication. My time working as a business strategy consultant gave me a great appreciation for the importance of communication in business. Clear and effective communication can solve a myriad of challenges in your business and professional life, and as a strong communicator your employment prospects, business relationships, team performance and family life are all dramatically improved.

Shameless plug for your business:
Enlightened Stock Trading ( is the only stock market trading education business that empowers you, as an individual trader. It shows you how to design and test your own unique stock trading system that fits YOUR Personality, Objectives and Lifestyle. We have no conflicts of interest and we are focused on teaching you how to trade stocks profitably in a way that fits your life.
After working through the Enlightened Stock Trader Certification Program you will find yourself confident and empowered with your own battle tested trading system and trading plan to guide you through the markets.
