Late in December 2011, I was head-hunted by the Richard Chandler Corporation (RC). I must admit that I never knew about the corporation and of Richard Chandler, Singapore's 4th richest man and humble philanthrophist. After getting to know about the corporation, I was excited at the prospect of working with RC as I believe in RC's mission and vision. Alas, RC decided not to recruit. Although I was quite disappointed, I thought, if I could not work with Richard Chandler, I could try to be like him. With that dogged determination and desire to continue my great-grandfather, Haji Yusoff's entrepreneurial spirit, I set up my own company - Archipelago Consultancy. God willing, I aspire to be the next Richard Chandler.
