Being laid off is definitely not a good feeling. It somewhat reminds me of getting dumped. Lots of emotions and full of confusion 🙁
The silver lining is that I have received such overwhelming support after the previous post. It is easily the most commented and liked post! So many have volunteered to join the discussion, quite a few reached out to suggest ways to collaborate, and a few literally gave me money!
You all are truly Friends of StocksCafe! Thank you very much for standing by me through this tough time. This once again reminded me of how so many of you also stood by me more than 7 years ago when StocksCafe (SGXCafe then) faced an existential crisis where people pledge money and even ad space.
If you are keen to support me (and StocksCafe), one easy way would be to simply sign up with Webull via StocksCafe’s referral and fund the account with at least SGD 1. More details here.
I will get referral fees, you will get USD 50-500 from Webull in stocks and also two years of StocksCafe subscriptions, and Webull will get a user to try out their platform. This is a win-win-win situation!
I will be back stronger!
P.S.: Meanwhile, please allow me to take a break as there are so many things to handle after a sudden layoff.
Stay Positive Evan. What you have done in SC is truly already amazing. You cant keep a good man down !
Thank you! Certainly, I am not going to go down so easily especially when I have such strong support!
Keep it going Evan. 🙂
I look forward to when we can discuss on Zoom, in the meantime I would also like to contribute directly and would suggest that you open a simple Patreon campaign, it allows us to contribute various amounts (at our choice). I would gladly make a regular monthly contribution over and above the current Sub, but would suggest that if you make it easier, more would join.
Sorry but I tried the WeBull and it did not garner my interest ☹️.
Thanks! That is a good idea. Although I do not need to let Patreon earn my money, I can easily set it up such that people can choose the amount to contribute 🙂
加油！Definitely will get through it. Take it as a break which I did the last time. Common nowadays.. Fret not. 🙂
Thanks. Ya. Apparently, I am newbie in this. Quite a few other colleagues are like “This is my 3rd time being laid off” 🙂
All the best Evan! Hoe you tide over this period smoothly and come out stronger. 🙂
Yes, I will! (Or at least I hope I will)
I’ve just joined stock cafe, you had done a great job. Take a break and stay positive!
Thank you 🙂
Be strong, focus and explore ! This may be a pivot to better things.
Thanks! Been thinking about what should be next in life 🙂
Better things are coming ahead, Stay positive, stay awesome!
