“When I first started, the very first meeting I ever had with my manager, he imparted to me this wisdom. He goes, Look, Richard, if you really want to go up the ladder really fast. Just do one thing. Just make your boss's life easier. Right? And I thought, okay, cool. Great. That's easy. And I was doing it for a few years at KPMG. And then I started getting juniors under me. And I'm like, hey, these juniors, how do I motivate them? You know? And I thought about, like, what if I applied the same thing, not just to my boss, but also the people below me? Right? And so, this is where number five comes in is about, like, I'm always trying to think about how do I make the lives of my team easier…”

Richard Phu Bio
Hey! Rich here, I call myself the ‘Geek Master’ to my team because I geek out over systems, processes, and apps! Being in business shouldn’t mean having less freedom in life. That’s why I’ve been obsessed with creating systems and processes with entrepreneurs and business owners to create freedom for the owner, but also their virtual teams to work flexible times and wherever they want.
I’ve been designing, building, implementing, and reviewing processes and systems for well over 8 years working with clients like Deutsche Bank, Nestle and Macquarie Bank. However, after countless hours pouring my heart and soul into projects with little fulfilment, I left my corporate career to start an online men’s coaching business. It ran itself allowing me to travel the world, spend time with my family and even to move to Singapore to call home for some time. All of this was possible through building the right systems in place so that I’m not chained to my business. After being asked by so many other entrepreneurs to systemise their business’s (including a company of 40+ remote employees). I created the Freedom Systems with the sole-aim to help entrepreneurs who are trapped in their business get their freedom back… So, they can spend more time with their family and do what matters most...
