Josephine PL ONG

R&D Education and Training Services was founded in 2009 when I recognized the need for greater career flexibility while juggling the responsibilities of being a full-time, hands-on mother. This was also the moment when I decided to pursue my dream of achieving both success and significance in life.

After experiencing the heart-wrenching loss of my beloved twin son, Dylan, and facing a breast cancer scare, I realized the urgency of leaving a meaningful legacy, not only for my surviving twin son, Ryan, but also for those around me. These life-changing events shifted my focus towards inspiring and helping others.

Using practical and structured strategies, including sharing real-life success stories of ordinary individuals, I strive to empower people to view themselves positively, building upon their unique strengths and capabilities while managing the challenges that life presents at different stages.

While I can't predict the future, I am filled with hope that my journey will ultimately have a happy ending. I am committed to making every moment count and to inspiring positive changes in the lives of others. I invite you to let me assist you in rewriting your life story for the better.
