My Story

Josephine PL ONG

R&D Education and Training Services was set-up in 2009 when I realised that I needed more career flexibility and dynamism while balancing the different roles as a full-time working hands-on mother.  It was also then that I decided that it was the right time to start building my dream – enjoying both success and significance in life.

Following a painful and helpless loss of my precious twin son, Dylan, and (yes!) an unforeseen breast cancer scare, I realised that I had to bring forward my dream of leaving a successful legacy, especially for my surviving twin son, Ryan, and the people around me.

Everything and anything else didn’t matter anymore except to have the chance to live just one more day to bring meaning, desire and inspiration to as many as I can. 

Using realistic, structured and practical strategies such as sharing real-life success stories of ordinary and humble characters, I help people see themselves in a positive light, building on their unique strengths and competencies while coping and managing day-to-day challenges at different life stages.

So, will I have a happy ending?  I sure HOPE so, but I do KNOW that the journey to the end will be well-served and spent, and it is my best hope that your life story turns for the better from today on.

Let me help you re-write your life story.
