Hi my name is Chinkee Tan, aka "Mr. Chink Positive!” your Motivational Speaker on MONEY, MINDSET and SUCCESS.
But wait… there’s more! 🙂 I am also a Radio / TV and Social Media Personality; the Radio Anchor and host of Radyo5 92.3 News FM’s Award Winner of the Best Special Program of the 20th KBP Golden Dove Award for “Chink Positive”.
I also write daily blogs for my personal website and my FB page which has 1.5 million followers by now. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram. By the way, Chink Positive on YouTube Channel already has more than 96k subscribers and counting!
I have authored three bestselling books, “Till Debt Do Us Part: Practical Steps To Financial Freedom,” “For Richer and For Poorer,” and “Rich God Poor God,” which are now available at all branches of National Bookstore, Fully Booked, and Philippine Christian Bookstore nationwide.
I was born in Tondo, Manila, of Chinese parentage; eldest of the three children. After my father experienced big losses in business, I started to realize the importance of perseverance and hard work at a very young age.
The crisis brought me to Divisoria where I bought anything that I could peddle to my classmates and friends, including toilet paper rolls, to help augment my family income. And that was when I discovered the value of savings.
It was at this point in my life when I developed my business acumen. In the course of my early start as a budding entrepreneur and the different challenges it presented, my vision in life became crystal clear:
“To be a very successful entrepreneur who will be
at the providing end of earning opportunities
for people who need them.”
Today, I have witnessed the realization of my vision as I embark on various ventures where I always figure out ways to reap good returns. My firm belief is to help enough people get what they want so I can also get what I want in life.
I always speak from my heart and I have given talks to retirees, executives, private as well as government employees, students, church leaders, and even out-of-school youth. Moreover, I have mentored and coached more than 50 people to become millionaires in their business.
Author of Bestselling Books and TV / Radio Personality
In addition to what I have already mentioned earlier, I am also the author of 8 bestselling books; two of which are the “Diary Of A Pulubi and My Ipon Diary”, which had already sold a total of over 1,000,000 copies by the time I’m writing this. And it is my pride and honor to say I am the only Filipino author who had received a congratulatory letter from a Philippine President, former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
I am the host of the award-winning program "Chink Positive", aired on radio (92.3 New FM) and TV (Channel 41 Aksyon TV) and I also host two of the segments in TV 5 shows “Kumare Klub” & “Balitaang Tapat.” I used to co-host the Hall of Fame Winner of the Catholic Mass Media program “Radyo Negosyo” of DZMM. I was also one of the co-hosts of the 700 Club Asia and one of the resource speakers of GoNegosyo.
My passion in life is to help people experience FINANCIAL FREEDOM and become DEBT-FREE. I believe that the best way to accomplish these is through education. The reason why a person remains poor and in debt is not because of the lack of money but the lack of education. And by the word “education”, I mean financial literacy.
“Financial literacy is the key to financial freedom”.
How To Create Money
I’m passionate about teaching other people how to create money. I teach on how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset, how to start a business, how to be successful in the profession of sales, and much more.
How To Handle Money
Developing a healthy money mindset, illustrating practical ways on how to save, budget and get out of debt are ways to handle money properly. Those are the things I am really good at and I’ll show you how to get there.
How To Grow Your Money
I always make sure that my audience learns what an investment is all about, how and where to invest their money and how to prepare for their golden age of retirement; the kind of life they’ll definitely enjoy and will be looking forward to, as early as NOW.
How To Protect Your Money
Expect the unexpected… And so we have to learn how to protect our hard-earned money from unexpected, unfavorable things that might happen in our lives, sooner or later. And I’m here to share with you ways on how to protect your money.
Educational and Entertaining
Learning can’t be boring. We need a few laughs to enjoy the sessions while I share rock-solid principles for living and working better. My stories, humor, tips and advice are all encouraging and will get you equipped to operate effectively in your field of influence – regardless of age or occupation.
I feel more comfortable and more effective in teaching principles rather than techniques. Techniques may be applicable to only a certain number of people; while principles can be applied to everybody.
I believe that connecting to my audience is essential before I deliver my message. I strive to know my audience first, find out who they are, what their needs and feelings are, as well as their fears and concerns. I know that it is only after understanding one’s audience that I can deliver an absolutely convincing and effective message.
I will give your group a presentation guaranteed to make an impact, backed up with practical, real world content.
A One for All Motivational Speaker
If I can make students with shortest attention span to sit and listen to me for 3 straight hours, I can certainly address the toughest audiences! My content and experiences were proven relevant and beneficial to companies and professional organizations looking to bring out the best in their personnel.
9 Reasons Why You Would Want To Book Me As Your Motivational Speaker
My Motivational Speaking endeavor started in the mid-90’s with my own organization that had a sales force of 30,000. I started speaking professionally in 2008 where I had given talks to various groups – from as few as 4 to as many as 12,000 people in one event, to almost all types of business; whether it be a sales group, SME’s or big corporations. Motivational Speaking has been my second nature.
I had held sessions through power outages, last minute schedule changes and even with tough, initially uninterested audiences. The list of unexpected situations continues, but the bottomline here is that my passion and eagerness to reach my goal, coupled with your trust to make your event successful would beat all odds.
2. Family Oriented – A Better Half
More than a Motivational Speaker, I am an honest to goodness happy family man, first and foremost to my happy wife Nove Ann Tan and father to my 3 wonderful kids; they are the priority in my life. My family is what inspires me to continue inspiring and motivating people.
My firm belief is that “no amount of success in business, in society and even in profession can compensate for failing the family.”
“You cannot export what does not work!”
“You cannot give what you don’t have.”
These strong family values allow me to bring tremendous content and credibility to the stage.
3. Man of Authority
I was given a great opportunity to work with and speak with internationally renowned guest speakers like Nick Vujicic and Francis J. Kong. (I have to tell you, it was awesome!) 🙂
Once an artist, always an artist… In the distant past, I was once a part of showbiz (but that’s another story). It may be short-lived as some people would say, but having experienced diving into it as a TV and movie actor, comedian and writer; it gave me the much needed skill of entertaining the crowd while I get them into the groove of my intention – to motivate and teach them how to better their lives financially. Edutainment - Mr. Chink Positive style will keep them wide awake and having a great time without sacrificing the integrity of passing my message through.
5. Customized Presentation
Different strokes for different folks. I believe that there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all presentation. A good talk is neither canned nor boxed. I take time in advance to ask questions and get to know the group beforehand to ensure my content is relevant. I conduct TNA (Training Need Analysis) before I create the right formula that you, as my client need – that way it will get incorporated with your objective(s) and comes with it the appropriate messages I have woven-in as requested.
6. Simple, Down to Earth
I may be energetic and upbeat, but I don’t have the habit of giving over and beyond technically complex jargons that can intimidate my crowd or worse, get them cross-eyed and doze off. I am a big fan of simplicity. I have the gift of digging out the complexity and making it very simple for people to understand. Authenticity and credibility, these are just a few of the many reasons why people love my talks.
7. Easy for You
Time is of the essence. That’s the main reason why my line of communication is on 24/7. I make sure your emails are replied to and your calls returned within 24 hours. I don’t show up on time… because I show up BEFORE time 🙂 ... Always. I never give free headaches to anybody.
8. Workshops and Breakout Sessions
Aside from my motivational keynote presentations, I can be available to conduct small workshops and breakout sessions to deepen the impact of my content, saving you from having to hire another speaker to do the job.
9. Money Talks
Despite everything that have been mentioned About Me, being successful and an expert in my field(s), I still maintain one of the most reasonable rates in the industry you will get to find. I am a firm believer that the tag price should not be the main issue why we (you and me) are not going to be able to help inspire people to reach their maximum potential. Rest assured you will get the best bang for your buck!
I could be the best investment you can make in your particular goal! 🙂
