I labored with some prime business manufacturers after I was modelling – Vaseline, Pond’s, Colgate – and I used to be usually flown to locations like India to work with Bollywood celebrities. I by no means noticed it as a long-term gig, although, and positive sufficient after two years, I ended up hating it. It felt like I wanted to re-enter the actual world – so I went again to Singapore to begin my very own boutique expertise company. Representing round 300 folks, I labored with unimaginable manufacturers throughout that point as properly, together with high-fashion manufacturers like Gucci – however I realised fairly shortly that the expansion potential was finite. Sooner or later, after we’d launched a manufacturing arm to the enterprise, we received a contract with a cryptocurrency firm. On the time, I had no thought what crypto or blockchain was, however the funding potential blew me away.
