Pauline Ng, 29, Singapore
Pauline Ng teamed up with her mother in 2009 to set up an award-winning facial spa called Porcelain. They encourage customers to stop wearing foundation so their skin can breathe.
"A lot of mistakes that I have made in the past, when I was younger, had to be made so that I could grow." She says.
"But if there was one piece of advice I could give myself it would be to perhaps weigh things out a bit more and not to be too rash. In the past when you are young, you are fearless. So now I would tell myself to weigh things out a little more. To not to be too overly emotional when it comes to dealing with work. You have to always be professional."
