Ong Whee Teck, July’s #WarriorsOfEvolve, Just Wanted To Be A Cool Dad

Whoever said #WarriorsOfEvolve were one-dimensional? This month’s Warrior of Evolve is primed for action any time of the day, whether armed with his wit and intellect in the boardroom, a sketchpad and an eye for color, or clad in a gi!

Artist, CEO and a BJJ practitioner – July’s Warrior of Evolve Mr Ong Whee Teck sees himself constantly in progress and a lifelong learner with a clear vision of where he wants to be.

An avid artist who tends to sketch urban scenes, Whee Teck enjoys the creative process, documenting the process on his YouTube channel. But he might not have embarked on his social media journey if he did not have one simple goal: all Whee Teck wanted was to be a cool dad to his 16-year-old daughter.

His induction into the cool kids club was affirmed when she proudly declared that her friends had told her that he was a cool dad. And as a lifelong learner, there could not be any greater achievement.

When he’s not sketching, Whee Teck is most likely training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Evolve MMA, rolling on the mats with his peers four times a week to stay fit. An active member of the community, he obtained his blue belt recently, after having trained in BJJ for over two years.

With all his successes as an artist and businessman, Whee Teck continues to work on overcoming performance anxiety. An authentic multi-faceted and multi-talented Warrior of Evolve, he stresses the need for having confidence in the effort that you’ve dedicated to any endeavor:

“The reality is, at the end of the day, if we have put in the work and practice, you’ve just got to execute it with confidence… it’s not the results, it’s the fact that you’ve put in the work.”

Persistence, confidence and determination drive our #WarriorsOfEvolve. Whee Teck is testament that age is not a factor – what determines your success anywhere in life is whether you’ve put in the effort and if you’re executing your plan with confidence. Come and find your own community and unleash your greatness!
