WBS Connect is a special lunch initiative where we will invite 3 members each time to personally find out more about their business needs and wants. This gives a deeper insight into each of our member’s businesses and enables us to connect them better with what they’re looking for, within WBS or outside of WBS.
Name: Ang Phaik Hoh (Pauline Ang)
Company name: Public Mutual – Pauline Ang’s Agency
Type of Business: Unit Trust
How did you get started in this biz?
Worked as QA manager in a manufacturing environment for 31 years. At 53 years old she accepted the company’s VSS program and quit her job without knowing where to go and what to do. Her good friend recruited her as an agent but she was worried as she had no sales background. Luckily all training were given by Public Mutual and she started to wish to own her agency one day!
What do you love about your business?
All her friends gave her motivation at the initial stage and made her confident to start as a Public Mutual agent. Very soon she achieved her AM target and became supervisor. Gained her GM title in the 5th year. Her ultimate goal is to produce 5 GAM for her own agency. She loves her job very much especially when she can help others to achieve their dreams in life and career. What she enjoys in this job the most is having flexible working hours and various incomes follow since she started.
What are your key products?
1. Investment in unit trust

But right now, she is focusing on building her agents.
