Passionate about investing

Food & Fashion

19 January 2012

Continuing on with our Broadgate meets series;  I spent some time with Khun Warabodee (Executive Assistant to CEO & Chairman).

Q:  Tell us about what you do?

A:  My job is assisting the CEO and accounting.  Meaning I have overall responsibility for the groups financial statements.  I assist the CEO with our current banking projects and take care of his schedule.  If we have our partners visit Thailand, I look after them also.

Q:  What do you enjoy most about your job and why?

A:  I enjoy attending executive level meetings because I can learn a lot from the executives and CEO’s who attend.  With accounting, I can enhance my knowledge as I do this daily, also we have an outsourced accountant who looks after me and we share best practice.

Q:  What is your new year’s resolution?

A:  I will continue to do my job to the best of my ability.  But as our company grows I know my workload will increase so the challenge is to keep doing what I do but more of it!  For my family, I will take care of them, as my Dad is not here.  I will also redecorate my house.

Q:  What are you passionate about?

A:  Firstly, Passionate about investing – but if you asked me, invest in what? – I would have to say I’m just a normal employee and not a millionnaire.  So I just deposit money into a savings account and get the interest.  In the future, if I earned more money – then I would consult with my colleagues and managers for the best advice on where to invest.

Q:  What do you enjoy spending your money on?

A:  Fashion!  – But not all of my money.  My priority is my family and looking after their needs.  Any money left over I spend on fashion and food.  I’m not a millionaire so I don’t go for brand names.  I like shopping in the sales especially Platinum.

Q:  What motivates you in life?

A:  I have many dreams.  I’m sure many people would say they want to be a millionaire – right?  And money is a part of that motivation.  I want to carry on working as I’m only 28 but I imagine myself in 10 years being my own boss and having a business of some sort.

Q:  Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

A:  It’s too short to tell! – But either owning a business or investing in my friends businesses.
