“She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible.
She walked with the Universe on her shoulder and made it look like a pair of wings”
– Ariana Dancu
And that’s what Angels Services is about. We are about acceptance, authenticity, change, courage, empowering women to make a suitable decision and positivity. Angel Services is a brand started by Ranger Investigation providing “for women by women” personalised private investigation dedicated to the purpose of evoking Positive Change within Women.
Just before the end of 2018, my boss requested me to write about Angels Services.
“Go back to the roots and why we wanted to start this in the beginning. Don’t have to be long just a paragraph or two.” He said.
I have to admit; it wasn’t easy for me. How can I encapsulate this “purposeful” concept into a story-telling journey that speaks to the audience?
“Too fluffy, vague!”
Obviously, it is fluffy and vague, especially when it’s in the private investigation industry, and to add on to its difficulty, we are doing an old business in a new way. It would be a breeze if I am to write about a “for women by women” in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
It took me countless Spotify playlists, lonely drives and drafts to finally settle for the below.
Back to the roots
Years back, I engaged my current boss for private investigation. Within my 1-year experience, I realised private investigation is actually a very meaningful occupation which is more often than not, under and negatively represented. (of course, my boss made the positive impact!)
Subsequently I was approached through close friends who witnessed my change, to share my life changing experience and journey with other ladies who faced similar issues privately. Through these meetings and private phone calls, I realised that there are a lot of women out there that are helpless and lost; not only with the discovery but also the aftermath that can range from children and parents’ issues to schools and matrimonial assets. I am aware of the domino effect if these are not dealt with a positive and rational mindset. More importantly, how it will affect the children in a long run. I was fortunate that my arduous journey was made less difficult because my connections were able to direct me to sound advice, right support, person, resources and etc to guide me every time. I cannot say the same for these ladies I journeyed with.
Certain events happen for a reason, who you met, what you experienced may be preparing you for more meaningful duties in life. When we realised helping women find closure to move forward rationally was something that can have a profound effect on society, Angels Services was cast in stone… with my current boss over a basket of fries & chicken wings.
For Women by Women
The concept of Female Private Investigator is not new. There are existing female private investigation firms in many countries including the US, England, Japan and Hong Kong. So a “for women by women” private investigation oriented solely for females, turns out to be a “unique” touchpoint to journey with ladies and advocating positive change.
It also turns out that Female Private Investigators are not common because of the inherent characteristics of this occupation (it’s not a joking matter working in Singapore weather). Females are underrepresented in this industry and the irony: more than 50% of the actual businesses are actually from females.
“When women support each other, incredible things happen.”
Men and women are different and in times like this, a feminine touch may be more comforting and puts us at ease.
At Angels, we provide quality private investigation with a personal touch while advocating positivity. We want to provide a safe, inclusive and comfortable space for women to turn to because we been through it. We understand that you may not summon enough emotional and mental capacity to handle the sudden overloading. No matter who you are, you can hear real stories, practicable suggestions, and encouragement from someone who has dealt with similar issues from us.
The Soul and Spirit
Despite the above, I can never fully encapsulate Angels Services in one sitting because the ethos lies in our attitudes and aspirations. It will be dynamic and ever changing as long as we adopt the improving mindset, believing in creating positive ripple effects, empowering women and take our roots as our guiding light.
