The term ‘entrepreneur’ originates from the French word ‘entreprendre’ which means “to do something” (Swedberg 2000) or “to undertake” (Kuratko & Hodgetts, 2001). It was first introduced by Richard Cantillon, an Irish banker in Paris, through his essay ‘Essai sur la nature du commerce’ (1755) which was published twenty years after his death (Grebel, Pyka & Hnucsh, 2003). Cantillon advances the arguments that entrepreneurs are economic agents who have the foresight and willingness to take advantage of unrealised profit opportunities through  buying and selling activities (Blaugh, 2000). It is entrepreneur who acts as the middleman to  buy at a low price and sell at a higher price. Entrepreneur is an individual who takes initiative to bundle resources in innovative ways and is willing to bear the risk and/or uncertainty to act. Entrepreneurship is the process of creating something new with value by devoting the necessary time and effort, assuming the accompanying financial, physic and social risks and uncertainties, and receiving the resulting rewards of monetary and personal satisfaction. (Robert, 2010). What makes a successful entrepreneur? It certainly helps to have a strong technological skills or expertise in key areas,  but does not specify the characteristics of entrepreneurship. Instead, the main qualities are characteristics such as creativity, the ability to keep going in the face of hardship, and social skills needed to build a great team. If you want to start a business, it is important to learn certain skills that support this quality. It is also important to develop entrepreneurial skills if you are in the role of work in which you are expected to develop the business so that you’re set up for success.  To be a successful entrepreneur, you must have high and maintain perseverance. You also able to draw lessons from rejection, as well as prevent it from damaging their self-esteem. The ability to withstand repeated rejection and disappointment is an essential part of an entrepreneur’s makeup. Successful entrepreneurs are essentially, you must be able to deflect the rejection away from yourself and use it as a spur to fix flaws in your business ideas.

Besides that, the history of entrepreneurship is important in worldwide, even in Malaysia. If you go further back in history, entrepreneurship wasn’t highly valued in Malaysia. They have different values than the Americans do. Once a period of modernization to a point overcame Malaysia they began adopting some forms of American work values and began to accept entrepreneurs. Let’s  see the history of entrepreneurship in Malaysia. Entrepreneurship in Malaysia  began as early as the Malacca Sultanate when locals traded with foreign merchants. When the British ruled Malaya, they had changed the social structure to run the government "Divide and Rule". In this way, the Malays worked as an administrator and the agricultural sector, the Chinese working mined and traded, while the Indians worked the plantation sector. As a result, the Chinese are more to the fore in the business compared with the Malays and Indians.

After independence, the New Economic Policy (1971-1990), the National Development Policy (1990-2000) and the Vision 2020. All parties give support and promote the development of entrepreneurship in Malaysia. Entrepreneurship in Malaysia refers specifically to indigenous involvement in entrepreneurship before, during and after the New Economic Policy (NEP) was launched. The New Economic Policy was launched to increase Bumiputera participation in entrepreneurship. There are two goals of poverty alleviation NEP to increase income and employment opportunities without regard to race and also the Bumiputera Restructure to correct economic imbalances between the races. Government gives encouragement of entrepreneurship development and provide recognition to entrepreneurship because they can contribute to national development. In 1995, the government created the Ministry of Entrepreneurship as a body that regulates and promotes the development of entrepreneurship in Malaysia. Now, the ministry was renamed the Ministry of Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development.

The term “entrepreneurial environment” refers to the combination of factors that play a role in the development of the entrepreneurship. There are three elements that as entrepreneur needs to be followed. First, is culture. Awareness of the importance of entrepreneurs to the local economy, to celebrate the entrepreneurs take, openness to entrepreneurs who often march to the beat of a different drum, acceptance that failure is part of the entrepreneurial process and a willingness to promote and entrepreneur support when the business first (or second) they are not successfully. Second is infrastructure. Going beyond the usual response infrastructure to include traditional and non-traditional leadership, educational institutions such as community colleges and regional universities, cultural and recreational resources, quality schools, social organizations and emphasize the variety of creativity. Lastly, is support element Entrepreneurship. Some specific programs and initiatives designed to provide a range of support to entrepreneurs of all kinds when and how they need it, including service providers such as Hall and Small Business Development Centres, the network organization and opportunities, financing programs, business incubation services, mentor and counselling, and youth entrepreneurship education in and outside school. (Fogel, 2001)

What is cosmetic product? According to the FDA a cosmetic is “articles intended to be rubbed, poured, sprinkled, or sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human  body…for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance” [FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)]. Cosmetics are defined as materials or supplies to be used on the exterior of the human body such as skin, hair, nails, lips, teeth and oral cavity for cleaning purposes,  perfume, facial skin, body odor, protect or keep in good condition. In Malaysia, cosmetic  products is controlled under the Control of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations 1984, ASEAN Cosmetic Directives (ACD) and Guideline for Control of Cosmetic Products in Malaysia to ensure the quality and cosmetic products are safe for consumers. (ctpa, 2009)

A woman without paint is like food without salt."- Roman philosopher, Plautus. Civilizations have used forms of cosmetics, though not always recognizable to cosmetics users today for centuries in religious rituals, to enhance beauty, and to promote good health. Cosmetic usage throughout history can be indicative of a civilization's practical concerns, such as protection from the sun; class system; or of its conventions of beauty. The timeline below represents a brief history of cosmetics usage, beginning with the Ancient Egyptians in 10,000 BCE up through the beginning of the 20th Century.

Starting in 2008, the control of cosmetic products has changed from the System Registry System NOTIFICATION. Through a notification system, the company must make a notification to the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau (NPCB) prior to cosmetic products that can be imported, manufactured or marketed in Malaysia. Cosmetic products that have been notified to be provided Notification Number (NOT) as evidence that a cosmetic product has  been notified with the package. All information and formulation of cosmetic products that have been notified by the company will be reviewed by the BPFK to ensure that cosmetic products are free of banned substances and is used within the permissible limits and comply with legal requirements that have been set. BPFK parties will also conduct Quality Control Program in Cosmetic Products Market notified to ensure that cosmetic products on the market are of good quality and safe for consumers. The Regulation relates only to cosmetic products and not to medicinal products, medical devices or biocidal products. A substance or mixture intended to be ingested, inhaled, injected or implanted into the human body is not a cosmetic product.

Reliability is the quality of honesty, fair dealing and reliability in terms of doing what one has promised to do are essential traits of an entrepreneur. Customers reasonably expect  businesses to be reliable, responsible and dependable. Lack of integrity has permeated our culture. It can be seen in politics, sports, business and entertainment. Integrity is the highest level of professionalism and behavior. It’s doing what you know is right, even if no one is looking; it’s standing up for what you believe in and having the courage to speak up, even if your opinion is unpopular. Remarkably again about D’Herbs product is 100 percent ingredients derived from herbs and also low compared to other health products in the market. Product D 'Herbs can be found for as low as RM15 concentration of people in each location, including night markets, farmers' markets, pharmacies, herbal shops, and sales centers D' Herbs itself.

Dato’ Aliff are very strict to make a healthy and always make sure each of his products are good quality and meets customers satisfaction. Because of that, it is very affordable and reliable to  buy.


Datuk Aliff Syukri is very a foresight person in performing his jobs as entrepreneur. He  promotes D’herbs product by using his signature high pitched voice and fancy advertising campaigns as a way to attract people’s attention. Regardless of perception from people, he knows that viral marketing is one of the best ways to ensure his health and beauty products do well in the market. Datuk Aliff Syukri willing to take high risk by hiring a celebrity brand ambassador to promote his product on the television. He knows that hiring a celebrity is very costly. But Datuk Aliff Syukri has decided that in order to be known, there has to be a gimmick to attract attention from the market.

There are many types of health and beauty product being introduced by Datuk Aliff Syukri to meet customer demand. He has issued a total of 60 types of products specifically for men, women, and children. (Entrepreneur, 2015)


He has his own style in order to promote his product. In 2013, 28-year-old Dato’ Aliff  burst into the local media scene with appearances in television talk shows, newspaper and magazine articles, and widely-shared online videos. He was often seen in his sequined suits, with bullet-train speech patterns and alongside his famous “terlajak laris” tagline which made him a household name among middle-income Malaysians (Entrepreneur, 2015). His versatility clearly seen when he as the founder itself has become a brand ambassador for his own product. His “terlajak laris” tagline has become a gimmick that is able to capture the attention of the market. His signature high-pitched voice and fancy advertising campaigns often set the public’s tongue wagging either for better or for worse.

On early on 2000, Malaysian passion towards beauty product is increase drastically. But still, they prefer to have imported beauty product rather than local product. And this, of course is more expensive because of the tax and so on. Not all people could afford this expensive product. Aware of this situation, Dato’ Aliff Syukri started to produced and economical beauty and healthy product that are price friendly for the customer. His price range is affordable where all people can enjoy the benefit of the product with lower price. And what more important is, customer didn’t have to worried about the halal status of the product  because every product his company made are certified with halal sign.


Time is gold is so true. In this fast revolving pace, everything needs to be done quickly. A second late will cost you loss. Never underestimate the power of time management. For Dato’ Aliff Syukri, since he is a young boy, he couldn’t stay doing nothing. And start from there, he learn about business. He knows he didn’t have higher education qualifies so he used is skill to set up a business. On his vision, if he didn’t start early, he couldn’ t compete with his other friends. And now his work paid off. What he is dreaming of have become true. His advice, “if you have passion on something, don’t procrastinate, you will only loss your chance to become nobody to somebody”.

No matter what business you’re in, never insult your own  business. Do business as long as you can and don’t be afraid of some healthy competition and always take that as your challenge. “Don’t give up quickly, never say never and someday, you too will be successful and become a millionaire.” (Syukri,2015)

Out of the 49 terms involved, at least five terms were seen as too difficult to be fulfilled by KFA. Elaborating further, Aliff stressed, KFA is not  professional, cannot make decisions and plays politics. He did not know the reason for KFA rejecting his sponsorship, whereas this matter can be informed in a proper manner and not by humiliating him. As per agreed, he wanted to sponsor the Kedah football squad for RM30 million in three years and rm10 million annually for development to improve the quality of football and want to produce great young players but when his condition did not be fulfilled by KFA he even did not want to sponsor at least RM5million at all. I have been humiliated with accusations that I want to monopolize all the billboards in the state, whereas D'Herb was only  planning to promote KFA and Kedah players," said Datuk Aliff Shukri Kamarzaman, denying accusations level against him in connection with D’Herbs’ sponsorship of Kedah Football Association (KFA). (ABDULLLAH, 2016)

This company can serve as an example to other companies because of their conducive environment and can generate profit to Malaysia because this company also belongs to the group of countries that have to pay tax which known as GST.


In order to start a new business, there are alwa ys certain things that need to be improved in order to maximize the success rate in the marketplace. Recommendation is a way to make an improvement for business. There are four types of issues that can be used in order to make an improvement for business industry. It includes politic issue, social issue, technological issue, and economy issue. Politic issue

It is regarding the sponsorship of Kedah Football Association (KFA). The purpose of D’herb sponsorship is to upgrade KFA to a greater height and at the same time plans to build a zoo, a theme park and a herbal garden for the development of economic and tourism sectors in Kedah. D’herbs been humiliated with accusations that D’herb want to monopolise all the  billboards in the state whereas D’herbs was only planning to promote KFA and Kedah players. The matter has also admitted by KFA vice-president, Datuk Badrul Hisham Hashim, revealed to the media that ibaddition to the demand for land, there are several other conditions that cause the sponsorship deal with D’herbs had to be rejected. The founder of D’herbs cosmetic said that KFA is not profesional, cannot make decisions and plays politics. Because of this issue, D’herbs should know how to overcome this problem. This issue may cause a bad reputation to D’herbs industry because some people may think that D’herbs was the one with problem that causes KFA to reject this sponsorship. D’herbs should know how to handle this problem in order to fix their reputation. (ABDULLAH,2016) Social issue

The issue of misunderstanding between the founder of D’herbs cosmectic, Datuk Aliff Syukri and the Malaysian actress, Rita Rudaini. Apparently, Rita Rudaini claimed that an unknown individual who is known to have bad name Dato Aliff in media social. But Dato Aliff is not very pleased when his name is mentioned with the fights.(Syukri, 2016) D’herb should know how to handle this kind of situation. They should accept all the negative comments from the media social and try not to overreacted. Since the product is a very well known, it is likely that they would face such problems. Other industry also might face the same problems too. So it depends on them on how to overcome this kind of problems.

Technology issue

In technology relating to founder of ‘Terlajak Laris’, Dato’ Aliff Syukri, who was interested to be an actor of a hero film directed by Professor Datuk A. Razak Mohaideen titled ‘Badang Superb’. Since the product is very well known to local country, D’herbs industry should encourage other entrepreneur especially Malay entrepreneur to get involved to this industry film. It is part of commercial to increase his product so that when he becomes an actor his product will be recognized by people and will increase his production of business. According to Dato’ Aliff, he has been training for starring in the past two weeks and cannot wait to start shooting. Moreover, he got a lot of acting offers but before this he did not have time and the character offered inconsistent with his character. (Kosmo,2016).  In Malaysia, the entrepreneurship development is growing steadily. There are two kinds of way to start the  business either traditionally or modern way. The traditionally entrepreneurs typically start their own business in small capital, low value added and it takes time to set up the business. In modern day today, the technology was developed in advance such as the internet and information communication technologies (ICTs) are very common to the public. The independent variables of the determinants are education, prior knowledge, experience, government regulations and incentives, social network, availability of resources and opportunity identification.

Economy issue

The successful entrepreneur, Dato’ Aliff Syukri, the founder of beauty and healthy company give fully motivation and a good example to other entrepreneurs to achieve anything and nothing is possible with a hard work and good determination in life. Because of his hard work and determination, his product already goes around Asia such as Indonesia, Myanmar, Loas and Thailand. He became a successful entrepreneur in Malaysia and at the same time he contributes to our country economy. Other entrepreneur should make Dato’ Aliff Syukri as an example because all of his dream became a reality. His dream to own his dream car Rolls Royce became a reality. He always saw in western movies how successful people always have one of these so he makes his dream became as a reality. (Syukri, 2016)  From that situation, other entrepreneur’s dream can become a reality if they work hard and become a successful entrepreneur in the future.

As a conclusion, continuous improvement provides a process in which everybody can  play a part in moving the business forward. Thus, working in teams and hard work plays an important role in order to make an improvement and enables employees to share their ideas and expertise. In meeting these needs, it has also opened up other business opportunities for other entrepreneur as well. Other entrepreneur can use D’herbs industry as an example to make a  business successfully.
