    Dear Adam. I’m Minh Tam from Viet Nam,I’m in grade 6 (12 years old), I have read 5 of your books, it really excited.I’m studying after reading your book but just 3-5 days next, I don’t like study like the first day. My mother said that I just hard-working for a few days. Do you know how to hard-working for long time? Because I don’t hard-working so my English is not good, too. However, I want to go to another country to study like: Singapore, U.S.A, Japan,… and my mother say the lazy student can’t go study to these country. I know but I can’t change. I think I look like you when you was young, right? Maybe better a little bit (because you write in your book is more bad then me (I am gifted, so are you!)):p .How can you change from zero to a rich man and have a happy family? It is look like a magic. When my mother said: “why you don’t look like Adam Khoo?” I alway said that:”Adam Khoo is very lazy when he was young and he just be rich when he older(Sorry~), and I will better when I am older” Then I just say that tomorrow I will do this work, I know it wrong but I can’t change, I feel comfortable when I’am lazy. In this week, I’am better after I read your book about (I don’t know how it write in Singarpore) how to teach your daughter/son use money. Then, I just do my homework for 2 reasons: 1st: teacher don’t angry, and mom give me a little money when I finish before 9 o’clock (1,000VND). However, I think I just hard-working for 1 week more… Sometime, I think I have to hard-working to have my mom happier but just 3/7 times I think like that I have try. I have go to a lesson from your teacher change your life (Ernest Wong)in SMART KID, I want to change my life like you, but I don’t do like teacher Ernest Wong say because i’am lazy.3 days ago, I have do it, but now i am bored to do that, I bored musefl to. When do you come to Viet Nam and have a lesson like Ernest Wong, can you reply for me? In that lesson maybe you can help me many things. If don’t, you can also reply me in this website. But I just know a little English so can you write easy to know for me? Like everyone comment in this web, I’m your fan. During 10th birthday, my father have bought for me your book (I am gifted, so are you!) I don’t touch it after 2 months my father give me because your book not a comic so I think it doesn’t interesting before I read it. After my mom read a few pages, I have read all of that book but like i said, I just hard working for a few days (less than 10 days). Does it too bad? Can I change my life better? I think you just come to this pages sometimes, but do you read all the comments? If yes, please reply to my reply. And…. I want to ask how much about 1 lesson with you? It not a good question but my last lesson with Ernest Wong, It about 20,000,000VND a big number of money, my mother have to hard-working to much to make that money and I feel sad when I study that lesson with a lot of money but I don’t change. Do you think I can change from a lazy person to be a hard-working student? I’m have much IQ than EQ so sometimes I smart than another students but I don’t calm than them so I have mistake many times, it make they have high score than me even I smarter than them. Do have any book about how to make EQ higher or How to choice a good idea or same of these? I will buy that book and read that, maybe it make me calmer?
    Thank you

    Dear Mr. Khoo,

    I am reading your book ” Secrets of Self- made millionaires”. Since long time, I haven’t enjoyed to read a book like this. Thank you so much for inspiring us. I have a daughter, she’s 14 years old and she lack of confidence in her like many teenagers. She’s intelligent but she feels very lost, does not know what to do in the future. I am trying to help her but….. I know that you help a lots of parents as well as young people by your books, conferences and training courses. Unfortunately, we are living in France, I can speak and read in English, but my daughter not really, She can handle a few conversation but not yet reading a book. I am wondering if your books are translated into French, if yes I would love to buy them for her, hope they will give her motivation in study and give her a good direction for her future life. I want her to be successful and to be proud of herself.

    Thank you very much in advance for your soon reply.
