About Ponny

“So, What Do You Do?”

A charismatic new friend asks you this question at a party.

You cringe. There is a sinking feeling inside you, and you secretly wish you could escape this awkward moment.

You are NOT proud of what you do for a living, although you might appear to be “successful” on the outside.

But having a truly satisfying career that is successful inside-out is more than just money and status.

Something crucial is missing.

Yet, you’ve been stuck in this decision-making phase for months (maybe years), and still not getting anywhere.

Thanks to your exceptional analytical skills, your left and right brain are in constant debate, “To quit, or not to quit? “, which only makes you feel more overwhelmed about the dreadful decision.

Is This You?

I definitely feel you.
Because I was in EXACTLY where you are 10 years ago.

Hi! My Name Is Ponny.

My life’s mission is to support Empaths and Introverts in creating a work+life that is sustainable, meaningful and soul-fulfilling!

I’ve been in seemingly successful jobs where I had a corner office on the 60th floor where I watched the firework light show at the Hong Kong Victoria Harbour every night at 8pm, enjoyed lots of fringe benefits, and travelled internationally. Yet every morning, I dreaded taking my depleted body to work, felt like a zombie as my soul died bit by bit, day by day.

I’ve changed professions and experimented with jobs and workstyles I thought would be a better fit.

I was also a side hustler who has weird gigs outside of day jobs all the time.

I’ve even organised a service trip to India and Nepal to see if working for a non-profit was my thing.

Even after I did all the logical things, that lightning-strike AHA moment of
“Oh I finally FOUND MY SOUL PURPOSE!!!” never comes.

“Now What?!” I asked myself every day back then.

What If You Can Define & Live Your Own Version of Career Success?

After all those years of soul-searching and purpose seeking, I had a realisation.

I found that regardless of how much I want to have a say in how I live my life, making important life decisions have always been very nerve-wracking.

You see, most people are leaving school with absolutely no idea how to choose or create a career, and life that will make them happy. Our existing education system was established in the industrial revolution almost 200 years ago to train factory workers who follow instructions, and only cares about “making a living”.

Even for the more rebellious, fierce souls among us who resist following the flock nor complying with the authorities (parents, teachers, bosses, social expectations etc), many were simply stumbling along the way like throwing spaghetti on the walls to see what works.

We were NEVER properly trained in HOW TO MAKE LIFE DECISIONS.

Unfortunately, most career and life advices out there focuses on the HOW-TOs, i.e. the STRATEGIES and TACTICS only.

And that’s why most people fail in their early attempts at make a life change.

The Missing Piece?

Our work is NOT just what we do for a living.

Very often it’s how we see WHO WE ARE, and HOW WORTHY WE ARE as a human being.

The complex, deep-rooted psychological attachment we assign unconsciously to our work, income, status, identity, self-worth, power, confidence, life satisfaction and purpose makes every important life decisions soooo overwhelming that you want to pull your hair out!

Eventually, you’ll discover that being unhappy at work is just the tip of an iceberg that gets in the way of your overall happiness in life. But once you can untangle your thoughts and emotions layer by layer, things will start to fall into place.

Yet, this process could be frustratingly lonely and slow if you are on this journey by yourself.


That was what brought me to career coaching in 2013, and later includes HUMAN DESIGN as my guiding tool to help you understand your unique genuine essence.

With AI and technology getting more powerful, the future of work is going to liberate us from the boring, repetitive and compliant tasks, and empower every human to reconnect with our heart’s desires to create and collaborate for a better future for humanity.

It is only when we have the clarity of why we do what we do, and are fully grounded in our worth to have what we desire, we can fully, unapologetically embrace our most authentic self to create a life on our terms!

As my coaching has evolved from those 800+ sessions, I’ve developed an effective and soulful approach to help you uncover your purpose, and hands-on strategies to support you in navigating a new path in your career and life journey.

It’s time for us all to redefine career success on our terms. Will you join me for the revolution?

Some of My MANY Credentials:

Some Fun Facts...

As a proud multi-passionate gal (hello fellow MGs!), it wouldn’t have been a surprise to see me obsess over several topics and launch projects across numerous disciplines at the same time.

Being a learning junkie, I also dived deep into all sorts of soul-searching methodologies, from self-help books, courses and seminars by spiritual gurus, to tons of personality profiling and quizzes (eventually I managed to develop one myself), in order to unwrap the answers to the biggest life questions of “Who am I?” and “What should I do with my life?”.

These are some of the career experiments and detours that I’ve been through:

  • Spent a decade empowering and cheer-leading people’s career as an HR & Training professional in environments like listed multinational corporate, 5-star hotels, start-ups, international schools and universities.
  • Organised a month-long service trip and recruited 8 total strangers from different parts of Asia in Dec 2012 to villages in India and Nepal. Doomsday didn’t come but I was awakened. Since then, I’ve led overseas trips for students (100+ each trip) every summer at my university job.
  • Trained as a colour styling & image consultant, only to learn afterwards that I was not really that into fashion.
  • Have been taking freelance gigs since age 19, ranging from translation, web design, voice over to resume writing.
  • Followed my childhood passion for holistic health and traditional Chinese medicine, I gained a Professional Certification in TCM Wellness with no desire to be a doctor one day, but find it tremendously helpful as I can offer wellness advice to friends and families on preventive health practices and improving suboptimal health status.
  • Passionate in neuroscience, positive psychology, mind-body connections and character traits and have been researching in the field through personal experience for years.

Now It's Your Turn!

The world does not need us to be robots anymore.

Instead of floating around like dandelions based on other people’s opinions, it is time to free yourself from the “path” that society told you to take!

Every pivot in life is a transformational process – you have to shed old skins to grow into the bigger, better YOU that is waiting to emerge.

I know you are ready, because if not now, when?
