Behind the Scene
From Driving Uber 6 Days a Week to Running His Own Limousine Company in Singapore
The journey of an entrepreneur has its ups and downs, and Lim Zhi Ming has travelled that road of passion and pain, literally. From a property agent to an Uber driver and now the founder of his own business, the timeline of his life serves as a testament to his grit, determination and tenacity.
Hustling life of a driver
After eight long years in the world of real estate, Zhi Min’s life took an unexpected turn when he decided to become an Uber driver. He drove 15 hours a day, six days a week, and worked to the point of a burnout.
Sensing a new business opportunity
That’s when he realised he should be working smart instead. To have a better payout, driving for a high-end clientele would be more lucrative. And where land transport services are concerned, nothing screams high-end quite like a limousine.
Doing a simple Google search, he found 10 to 20 pages of businesses advertising limousine services. A large supply meant an equally large demand, and that meant a business opportunity to take advantage of.
Taking a leap of faith
Ever the risk-taker, he emptied his life’s savings and bought a brand new car to start his limousine service company. It was a bold move, but he was eager to give this a try.
To survive financially in the initial stages, he borrowed $10k from his cousin as cash flow reserve. During the first few months of his foray into the trade, he literally only managed to break even. But he was undeterred and pushed on.
At the end of year one, he managed to pull in more than 100k of revenue. And in the second year, he broke the 200k mark. By that point, he knew that his young business had a real fighting chance, and that is essentially the humble beginnings of Prime Aces Limousine.
First Singapore, next the world
With time, his business – alongside his ambition – evolved. To scale and be successful, he understood that he needed to think outside of the box. He needed to look beyond Singapore; he needed to think global.
Putting ambition into action, he executed an effective and intelligent business strategy. He listed 100 of the top limousine companies in the world, and determinedly worked his way to acquire them.
For the next three years, he tirelessly emailed all of these companies, most of which were based in the States, UK, Spain, Italy and Germany. Because of the time zone difference, he would actually cold call them in the middle of the night if they didn’t reply to his email.
His hard work and perseverance eventually paid off, and he succeeded in acquiring them as clients. While most drivers still drive full-time even after 10 years in the industry, he managed to cut driving by 50%. The rest of the time, he’s busy prospecting and procuring new businesses.
Business with a Heart
Before COVID-19 hit, there was a point where Prime Aces Limousine was hitting about 100 to 200 bookings a month. That was primarily how the company not only survived, but became one of the strongest players in the industry.
But above and beyond just being a lucrative business, Zhi Min was very particular about creating a business with heart and integrity. He promised that all drivers who took up his job will be paid on time. This guarantee of punctual payment is now part of the company’s DNA.
After everything that’s been said and done, it’s no surprise that Prime Aces Limousine is rated highly on Tripadvisor. In fact, it’s one of the top 10 limousine service providers on the site. It also enjoys countless raving Google reviews from satisfied clients.
Since its inception in 2017, the company has remained true to its mission of being the best limousine service provider in Singapore, while still retaining its heart and moral values.
Counting our blessings and giving them back to the less privileged
Helping Put Food On The Table – Caring For Our Own
The past year has not been easy. The impact of COVID-19 on the Singapore economy has been – for the lack of a better word – significant. Many businesses are operating in constant uncertainty, while others, sadly, had to pull the plug completely.
According to the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the sectors which were hit the hardest “rely on international travel, including the air transport, accommodation and other tourism-related sectors”. At Prime Aces Limousine, we lost 90% of our revenue.
But through sheer faith and tenacity, we fought back and made it to the end of 2021. We managed to recover 90% of our business compared to the last financial year. It’s a blessing to be still standing. We can still bring in sales and put food on the table for our dedicated drivers
And as we usher in 2022, Prime Aces Limousine will celebrate its 4th anniversary. This would not be possible without your constant support and trust in our promise of providing the best limousine transportation service in Singapore.
As an expression of our appreciation and heartfelt gratitude, we have decided to pledge 1% of our revenue back to society every year. We understand that these unprecedented times are exceptionally hard, and we want to help as many people as possible to stay afloat.
In the words of Denzel Washington, “At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
Once again, we’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And we hope you stay safe, stay healthy – both physically and mentally – and continue fighting the good fight. We’ll all make it through by constantly being there for one another.
