I am the no.1 fan for The Apprentice, watching and also learning something from Donald Trump. He is awesome.
For Asia version, I guess that Tony Fernandes is way too strict compared to Donald Trump.
But, i like his style =)
The candidates look pretty awesome.
Some works for many years in marketing, and sales field.
Some owns company with countless branches all over the country.
They are awesome people.
I am wondering where to put myself after watching them.
From the 1st episode, i can conclude that, tho most of them have wide experience in business, somehow, we should ensure that we have a good basic.
As I am still learning about business, strategy is important.
Reflect back to myself, I am doing marketing. Almost everyday, I check my pricing, do analysis, do survey, market research, sometimes, i dont know what I am doing everyday by looking a lot of calculation and numbers. I am not sure either I am doing it correctly, and does my work contribute something good to company? Jeng, jeng, jeng..
Sometimes, almost getting crazy because of need to do justification, experiment, and confuse either my sales mechanics is good enough? Hmm..
In business, they call marketing team as a planner.
Before I join marketing team, I am doing sales. It is true that doing sales is much more enjoyable. At least within a month, no need to stay back and do paperwork for at least 3 days in a week. I feel that I am more lively in the field compared to stuck in the office.
And, most of the time, when the sales rise very high, Sales person will claim that, it is because of us, we did well this month. Or, if sales drop, we start to blame each other. Haha. It is common.
Results is important
