Angel Tashveer

FOUNDER & CHIEF TRAINER , LavaBody Asia (2014)
DIRECTOR, Rotiboy International Pte Ltd (2004 - Current)
BUNTREPRENEUR (1998 - Current )
LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS COACH (2014)
YOGA INSTRUCTOR (2008 - Current)

A natural high achiever and thriving entrepreneur, Angel has been involved with local bakery icon "Rotiboy" since the very beginning in 1998 when she walked into the small traditional neighborhood bakery in Bukit Mertajam, Penang at the age of 15. That marked the beginning of a friendship with Hiro Tan, founder of Rotiboy, who eventually became her business & investment mentor. Taking on Hiro's advice to equip herself with business training and IT knowledge, Angel graduated from Campbell University, U.S with First Class Honours.

While considering her future career, Angel was sold into Hiro's vision of building an outstanding global brand through products, services and values. Working together in partnership as a team, Angel blazed the international markets of Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia and was part of the team that is responsible for the creation of over 200 Rotiboy stores in 6 countries over half a decade, creating a whole new bun industry that changed the lives of many, herself included. Her hyper accelerated lifestyle eventually caught up with her health leading her to a series of hospitalization as a result of compounded stress.

This led her to discover yoga where she experienced a major shift in her lifestyle thereafter changing her perspective and way of life. Her major breakthrough in this transformation process was the realization that all the wealth she created and her achievements mean nothing if she doesn't have her health to enjoy it. She began to delve deep into the 4000+ years old healing practice and eventually developed a strong affection for hot yoga. She went on to complete her 200-hours Hot Yoga Teacher Training Certification in Koh Samui, Thailand in 2008 and has since developed a schedule to teach 6 months in a year while still being involved in the growth and development of Rotiboy.

Her natural desire to share the importance of keeping check with your physical, emotional and mental health while aligning your goals and passion has extended her the opportunity to create a business with a vision to develop & maintain effectiveness in people especially seasoned and young entrepreneurs, high powered executives and those who lead an unpredictably hectic lifestyle.

Lavabody Asia was conceived to carry out Angel's current mission, which is to help you STAND OUT and STAY EFFECTIVE.

Bellum Tan

Have you ever wondered how Bellum Tan became Rich Dad Asia™? Here is his fascinating story:

Bellum Tan started up as a turnkey contractor in marine and offshore engineering. He had always been entrepreneurial since he was nine. When he was young, he stayed in a kampong, or small village. His family owned about four acres of land and planted many fruit trees, such as rambutan, jackfruit, mango, etc. Often after school, together with his cousins, Bellum would pluck the fruits from the tree, put them in a basket, and roam around the kampong to sell them.

After college, Bellum gave himself five years to work for others as an Employee (E) to learn the trade. While working for others, he was very helpful and volunteered his service to other departments, as he wanted to learn the business as much as he could. Soon, he started his first company, a part-time business. Then success begat success and he became a successful contractor. He was already rich by the time he attended his first seminar with Robert Kiyosaki in 1992.

Life-changing question

At that seminar, Robert asked the audience one question that Bellum said changed his life: What is the true job of an entrepreneur?

Bellum realized that working hard is not enough. He had built a business by working 18 hours a day. He practically had no time for anything else. And when there's a problem, he had to go and fix it himself. Like a typical entrepreneur, Bellum did everything himself because no one else can do it better than he could. As he said, it seemed that instead of his employees working for him, he was actually working for his employees. He was, in essence, Self-Employed (S).

In that seminar, Bellum learned that a true business owner should be able to leave his business for several months and come back and still find it running well. The secret to business is systems. Developing systems for all aspects of running the business is the main job of an entrepreneur. This way, he can hire and train employees who can run his business by following those systems.

Becoming a B and I

Today, Bellum's companies are being operated by his staff. Now, he has more time to run other businesses. In fact, his peers are always surprised he has all the time in the world to have long lunches with them while they hurry off to go back to their office. By understanding and applying Rich Dad principles, Bellum became a true Business Owner (B). With over 30 years experience in operating a group of companies, Bellum has successfully applied Rich Dad to attain financial, time, and location freedom.

Since meeting Robert in 1992, Bellum has since then practiced everything he learned by actively investing in real estate in the early '90s and has gone into investing with Robert and his team in providing seed funding for a few companies that have successfully gone public, including mining companies. Now, Bellum is classified as a Level-5 Investor as defined in Robert's book 'CASHFLOW® Quadrant', making him a true Investor (I).

He has honed his investment skills through businesses, real estate, and venture capital funding. So Bellum has successfully moved from the E (Employed) and S (Self-Employed) quadrants to the B (Business Owner) and I (Investor) quadrants.
