Welcome to BizOnCommute

I passionately believe that ‘making’ a happy family is my life’s purpose. “Make a happy family” is something my late Dad reminded me to do early in my marriage, and it’s something I’ve been striving to do for over ten years.

I started a new job late last year in Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) which is about 4.5 to 5 hours return journey by public transport or about 2.5 hours by car. Because I now spend a lot of time away from my family, I want to make the most of my commute and create something that would positively impact the lives of others. This led to the idea for BizOnCommute.

I want to continue being an involved father and husband by being close to my family. I want to raise loving and responsible adults who work hard for their dreams and cultivate an attitude of gratitude. I have been married to a wonderful woman since 2005 and my journey with her has been beautiful. Although it’s been naturally ‘peppered’ with ups and downs, there have thankfully been more ups than downs. I want to be as involved as I can in our marriage and also to support her in achieving her dreams and passions outside of family.

My passions outside of family are hypersonics (I was accepted into a high-speed flight research project called HEXAFLY-International), combat sports (boxing and grappling), excelling in my current job, and creating real value through BizOnCommute.

Wishing you all the best on your journey.

I didn’t find the subject too difficult, but I never really applied myself. My advanced math teacher echoed a similar sentiment. After I did quite well in …

Jim Carrey, Fighting, and My Life

So what’s the link between Jim Carrey, fighting, and my life? The answer lies in being laid-off twice in an eight month period, overcoming situational depression and an overwhelming amount of pressure and hustling hard to get back on my feet to financially support my beautiful family. Jim Carrey In 2014, Jim Carrey gave a graduation …
