Sometime; Uncle8888 was wondering how does some people got themselves into listening to insurance sales pitch at shopping malls, MRT, and Bus Interchange. Uncle8888 nowadays has more spare time for gaps filling so he can sit down somewhere into people watching. What he has observed! They use gifts! Once the gifts have been accepted; these gifts takers somehow will feel obligated to attend the follow up sales pitch and some may get hooked! Gifts! So gifts are like baits to fishermen! Fish got hooked because they opened up mouth. You got hooked by sales person because you open your palm! :-) Another observation; these sales persons are never bothered with rejections; they kept trying until someone is willing to accept the gift!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
