ACCELERATE AND ACCUMULATE YOUR FINANCIAL JOURNEY HERE

Happy day! Everyone.

I am James Oh, A Value Creation Specialist and I’m the Founder of the Money Tells Stories Blog.

I would like to take this special moment to welcome you onboard.  We are so excited and grateful that you have decided to dive in with us to this life inspiring, influencing and changing financial stuff.

We believe you will feel comfortable as if it is your home here, surrounded by like-minded people who are serious and dedicated about their personal growth and long to learn more about themselves and people around them.

Like you, we believe lifelong learning is imperative, inevitable and change is mandatory. Just like parachute, the more you expand your mind, the better your life becomes and there is no limit to how best it can serve you.

We also believe that the formal educational system is not perfect. At times, it basically hammers information INTO our head, if we are not careful; instead of drawing OUT the unique talents, skills and interests of each person. To be effective, it needs to be an inside out approach.

Be cautious and don’t let education be what goes in instead of what we have inside. Our unique intellectual faculties—the will, perception, reason, memory, intuition and imagination is far more important because this is what we have in the first place. When we develop the faculties of our mind, we can tap into the power of our mind that makes us special and powerful.

As such, it is our mission to continuously draw out the knowledge and power that is already inside of you and make the best of you.

We look forward to helping you discover who you really are, achieve your goals and live an extraordinary life that the world is long waiting for. I am not kidding here.

Welcome again to the Money Tells Stories Blog,

To do more and be better daily,


James Oh

OUR SUSTAINABLE VALUE CREATION MISSION


As some of you may well aware that there is so much discussion on value creation globally. We, at Money Tells Stories, also write to put forward our perspective in this regard. To us, value creation is definitely more than financial performance. Underlying the financial performance is the 6 Ps (Profit, Performance, Process, Purpose, People and Planet) we advocate. The global financial crisis of 2007-08 has proven our point. Sustainable Value creation is more inclined to circular growth instead of linear growth.

However, our ever-lasting progress has badly reconfigured our planet and what we have done now is many times than much faster the last century. Now we are facing with the worse environmental impacts, driven particularly by climate change and resource depletion. As the world’s population continues to grow at its exponential rates, the point of sustainability becomes more evidence.

The next question asked is how can business respond to these challenges? Of course, we can’t using the same old lenses, ideas and methods that have dominated the way our companies have worked over the last decade, or even the last century. We need to think of a new model for sustainable value creation that is more inclined to circular growth.

The good news is that there are already companies engaged in inventing this next phase of change. For instance, a number of companies that have started to think differently and much broader sense to overcome the challenges we face.


At the heart of our unit, we are truly committed to finding new ways to build sustainable value by way of finding the balancing our short-term performance with our long-term objectives. This is exactly the sort of thinking that needed to build sustainable value. We hope you can help us to make our dream into reality so as we can significantly playing our roles in resolving this challenges and leave a good legacy.
