Start Here

Hi, I'm Samuel Cheong.

Thank you, terima kasih for visiting my website.

I am a marketer living in Adelaide.

My career has mostly been in marketing and sales roles in various companies from airlines to real estate. I also do love to teach. Personally, I have found each of these roles have allowed me to work creatively, passionately and joyfully.

Writing came unsually as a hobby started in 2020 during the pandemic. The aim of my website is to write about big ideas about life and career, in bite-sized 5-minute articles.
