The Rundown: Business Feng Shui Tips with Master Kevin Foong

In partnership with CHiNOY TV, Globe Business invited renowned Feng Shui Master and Bazi Consultant, Kevin Foong, who has more than 20 years worth of expertise in Feng Shui, to talk about the business outlook in 2023. Through Feng Shui, he was able to establish a multimillion business at the young age of 28. 

The pandemic has pushed businesses to join the digital space; Foong recommended brick-and-mortar businesses to leverage the online platform not only for the sake of sales but also for the myriad tools and services made available for business owners like big data which allows them to make critical and informed business decisions.


The industry outlook of 2023 based on the five Chinese elements offers a glimpse into which industries are likely to grow and which need to evaluate and correct certain deficiencies.

The Water industry, which is heavily tied to ecommerce, is expected to rise. The Earth Industry, such as Property, Healthcare, Insurance, Gems, Stones, and Coal are also expected to grow. As for the underperforming industries, inflation and deflation, underwhelming stocks, and overproduction are likely to create fluctuations for the types of businesses indicated above. 

In 2023, it is expected that the economy will flourish at the beginning of the year but will become volatile at the latter part of the year due to the US economy’s expected recession, the high interest rate environment, inflation and deflation, and a prediction that a virus will once again hurt the economy in April. Kevin Foong advises taokes to have a solid Plan B to mitigate these possible scenarios. 


BaZi roughly translates to English as “Eight Characters” and it’s a Chinese astrological analysis method that predicts your destiny or helps you better understand your career, relationships, and self based on your birth year, month, day, and hour.

RAT. It’s important to do more in your business by pushing your boundaries either in terms of your products and services or the way you do your business. It’s also important to carefully craft your marketing strategies as some brands may make mistakes that will offend the audience and put your business in the red. Look more into collaborations like influencers and capitalize on your marketing. You may also feel more pressure in 2023 and you’re more inclined to mood swings so it’s important to relax every now and then. 

TIGER. You should diversify your business by expanding your scope or adding more value to your business. This year, you’re likely to get sick so it’s important to take good care of your health. You should also take note of your legal documentations and be more careful in legal processes. 

RABBIT. Marketing efforts should be expanded. You have greater prospects of gaining more income this year. It’s also key to look for new tools and opportunities to improve your business. People will also pay more attention to what you are doing this year which may be good or bad based on your actions.
