Hey there! I’m Huong (brownie points for those who don’t know me who can pronounce my name).
What you see here is what you’re going to get. Just me sitting on the other side of your screen communicating and connecting with you to see how I can best serve you. And you know what?
I’m going to be real with you too.
This is the internet, so if I really wanted to, I could be someone entirely different, but that’s just not how I roll (man, I want some sushi now). Pretending to be someone else isn’t on my agenda for three reasons: 1) it’s hard work and exhausting to pretend to be someone I’m not (pretty sure actors and actresses get my drift here) 2) awkward social encounters in the future. Hello?! What if we meet in person one day? That would just be so weird. Can you imagine how that conversation is going to go? Our interaction would probably end with a break up line like, “You’re not who I thought you were, Huong!” and 3) Like you, I’m awesome and let’s face it, there’s only one of me in this world. It just so happens that there are many girls (more so in Vietnam) with my name.
I don’t live up to society’s expectations and neither should you.
I’m different and refuse to live according to anyone’s standards, but mine. Heck, I can’t even live up to the standards of being an Asian. I’m actually a good driver and am horrible at math (I still don’t understand why math involve letters sometimes and don’t get me started on something called common core math. My friends Vanessa and Sara told me about it one time and a piece of me died during that conversation. I might’ve lost a few IQ points too). You and I have the power (and resources) to create a life we love and deserve so why should we live according to what others say?
The best feeling in the world is finally figuring out who you are and what you’re passionate about.
I can’t tell you how GOOD it feels to finally know who you are and what you’re meant to do during your time here on Earth. I recently found my identity and my passion two years ago. Funnily enough, it happened through Instagram when I stumbled across a stranger through #photography. Yep. I found my future friend and business partner in April 2013 through a hashtag that changed the course of my life (See? Social media is awesome)! Since then, I’ve met and served so many people and you know what? Changing lives with those who love doing the same things as you is the best feeling in the world! To get paid to help others live a life full of passion, joy and freedom? Who wouldn’t want to do that or be on the receiving end?
Nothing is worse than the feeling of not knowing who you are and what you’re meant to do in life.
If you feel this way, you’re not alone. I promise. It took me almost a decade to find my identity and passion (ironically, my passion came full circle) and it’s okay if you don’t know what you want to do in life just yet.
And that’s why I’m here. I’m here to serve you by communicating and connecting with you so I can help you be the best version of you that you can be because you deserve to create and live a life you love!
However, don’t expect perfection here. I have executed a lot of learning experiences (my fancy version of what others may call ‘mistakes’) and I love it because like Lara Casey said, “I’m likely going to mess up a lot and the funny thing is, I can’t wait. The goal of life isn’t to be perfect, but to live on purpose. Mess comes with living on purpose and it’s so worth it.” You’re going to see a lot of resources, advice from others I’ve learned from along with personal oopsies I’ve made, laughter (the cheesier the jokes, the better!), my goofy side and well, me being real with you because I’m living on purpose. Honestly, it’s the most fulfilling and humbling way to live!
I’m also here to take you on my journey as an entrepreneur.
I’m the first to do a lot of things in my family. The biggest? Graduate from college and now, experiencing the life of an entrepreneur (daddy would be so proud). If you feel me on being the first to do things in your family (or even your circle of friends), I can bet that you’re feeling lost and don’t know where to begin, right? Let me tell you, after a few years at this, “Hi, I’m Huong. I’m new.” to everything I’m trying to learn and do, I’m still getting schooled. A lot. I invite you to come with me on my adventures (Indiana Jones or Mission Impossible style or the way of 007, whichever you prefer) so if you do choose to be your own boss, you can learn to shorten your learning curves through me. I love shortcuts! If you don’t like legit shortcuts, well then, you’re just weird. Through the content on this site, you can start living a great lifestyle faster or if you want to be entertained by me, that’s cool too, whatever your heart desires. I love teaching others about my learning opportunities so it’s a win-win for all!
If you really think about it, no one really knows what they’re doing.
Have you ever feel like you have no clue what you’re doing?
Yep, me too. Have you thought about why tons of famous people sit there with a big goofy grin on their face during interviews? Their smiles are their way of saying, “Dude, it’s funny that you would think that I became successful because I knew what I was doing. I had no experience or clue on what I was doing before I became successful! Trust me.” I’m pretty sure I cracked the code on this phenomenon that nobody really knows what they’re doing. That’s the awesome part though.
We’re all here to support and help each other through life and if you seek, you will find many successful people who are willing and want to help you (::cough cough:: I’m one of them) with what you need. As I navigate through life, it’s my mission to do the same: to serve you.
My hopes are to not only take you on my adventures of servant leadership, travel, improving my health and wealth and living life on my own terms, but to help and inspire you do the same. You know those things you’ve always wanted to do? That person you want to become? Yeah, those very things. Only if you want it bad enough. When you’re serious (because I don’t play around), just let me know when you’re ready (to have time freedom, financial freedom, better health or just need a friend) and I promise to guide you. I also promise that you’ll be on the messiest, but best ride of your life!
Just know one thing, you’ll never be ready (when are we really ready for anything in life?) so you might as well do it (oh Nike, you’ve been wise for so long) and believe in yourself to create and live a life you deserve. Like my business partner, Kyle told me, “Life is too short to be unhappy.” Take action today! Warning: side effects may include severe happiness, time and financial freedom and feeling the best you’ve ever felt in your whole life.
