  • - Here is a good question from you.

  • What is the best thing to do if your parents

  • don't believe in your journey of entrepreneurship?

  • Well, my mom didn't believe my journey

  • of entrepreneurship either. Neither did my dad.

  • When I told my mom,

  • "Mom, I'm gonna quit school,

  • I'm gonna be an entrepreneur,

  • I'm gonna do my own thing,

  • I'm not going to college anymore."

  • You should see the look on her face,

  • as if I told her that I just killed somebody right?

  • And I remember my mom told me,

  • "Okay we're gonna talk about it.

  • We're gonna talk about it over dim sum."

  • So a few days later we had dim sum right here in Metro-town

  • in Burnaby. And it was my mom and my other relatives

  • and her friends and me and nine of them.

  • so 10 of us together.

  • We call that the famous dim sum ambush.

  • So basically my mom asked my relatives

  • and my mine and her friends all gather together

  • wanted to convince me why I should go to school,

  • why I should finish school and get my degree.

  • They spent hours convincing me

  • and I spent hours convincing them why it's not a good idea.

  • And by the end of that dim sum, by the end of that lunch,

  • I convinced one of my uncle's to loan me money

  • to start my next business.

  • See don't expect your parents to believe in you

  • and maybe or maybe not, you may or may not cut out

  • to be an entrepreneur,

  • but I do think and I sincerely believe this

  • that your parents want you to be happy

  • and your parents want you to be successful.

  • When I made that decision I proved to my mom

  • not through what I say my words by my actions,

  • I was working 12, 14 hours a day every day.

  • I didn't party, I didn't chill, I didn't hang out,

  • I didn't watch TV for five fucking years.

  • Every day I was working not a single day off.

  • When my mom saw my determination,

  • when she saw that I'm not slacking off,

  • I'm not being lazy by not going to school,

  • but because I found something I believe in

  • that I'm willing to die for.

  • I'm willing to put everything on the line

  • and I promised my mom

  • I said, "Mom give me five years. In 5 years, I don't make it,

  • I promise you I'll go back to school and get my degree.

  • But within these five years, let me do my own thing."

  • And I made it.

  • I proved to her through my actions. Not what you say

  • because for most of you guys watching this video

  • you talk about you wanna be more successful.

  • In the meantime, you spend three hours on Netflix,

  • you spend four hours playing around and playing video games

  • and doing all this shit.

  • If I was your mom, I was your dad I'm not gonna believe you

  • because your actions don't match with your words.

  • Your actions don't match your ambition.

  • You think it's easy, if you think school is easy

  • being your own boss running your own business is way tougher

  • than you think.

  • You cannot even imagine how tough it is.

  • You cannot even understand and fathom how tough it is.

  • So don't expect their support.

  • If you don't believe in what you do so strongly,

  • you don't get obsessed with your vision,

  • no one's gonna believe you

  • and don't expect anyone to believe you.

  • They're not supposed to believe you

  • 'cause you've got no track record.

  • You haven't done shit.

  • It's normal they don't believe you

  • and guess what even though when you're successful,

  • they still don't believe you, right?

  • Even as successful as I am today,

  • I still have people that don't believe me.

  • So forget it,

  • forget trying to seek validation from other people

  • and say, oh, you know what, if they believe me.

  • Do you know, some people would do, some people won't

  • and who will people believe you

  • they follow what you do, great.

  • Build something great with those people

  • the ones who don't believe you that's okay.

  • Who cares, right?

  • Who cares?

  • I don't know the surefire way to success,

  • but the surefire way to fail is try to please everybody.

  • So don't be a pleaser forget about that.

  • Focus on what you do.

  • Many years later I was driving my dad.

  • He came to Vancouver. At the time I was already

  • experiencing little bit success

  • was making decent money on the internet.

  • I was already teaching and speaking.

  • He saw one of my CDs,

  • right, that one of the the speech that I did.

  • He put in there my car was driving.

  • He was sitting next to me.

  • And after about, you know, I don't know 20, 30 minutes,

  • eject, he hit the eject button.

  • He took the CD out, he looked at me and he said,

  • "You're still doing the internet shit?"

  • And I looked at him and said, yep, dad I'm still doing

  • that internet shit.

  • And it's the internet shit that got me this car

  • that I'm driving you in.

  • So after so many years my dad still

  • doesn't understand what I do.

  • He still doesn't, he still thinks

  • that you know, I should go get a job or something like that.

  • He still doesn't get it, it's okay, right?

  • But both of them I can tell you that your parents,

  • they would be very proud of you once you make it.

  • Once you make it and it doesn't mean how much money you make.

  • It means that you are doing something

  • you're passionate about that you like

  • that you are helping people,

  • you're impacting a lot of people's lives

  • and you're building something good for people.

  • They'll be very very proud.

- Here is a good question from you.
