who is joey yap

Joey Yap is the founder of the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics and Chief Consultant of the Joey Yap Consulting Group. He is the world’s foremost authority in Chinese Metaphysics and a prolific author of 186 books and counting.

Early Life

Dato’ Joey grew up in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Australia at the age of 22.

Throughout his childhood, he was always intrigued by abstract sciences and the principles of the universe that were beyond what was taught in the school labs. At the age of 15, he began self-studying from books and all written references he could find on classical Feng Shui and Chinese Metaphysics.

Armed with a new mission, by the age of 17 Dato’ Joey had learnt to source out various classical literatures in Chinese metaphysic science and teachers thus enabling him to continue his path. At the age of 20 and while everyone else had odd jobs working for cafes or within the campus, Dato’ Joey was already conducting Feng Shui consults all over Australia.

Upon graduation, he faced what was probably his biggest dilemma. Everyone he knew went on to join MNCs or The Big Five. The closest people around him all told him to get a real job and to join the workforce, not to waste his time as this path does not earn a decent living, and to forgo the hobby that he had. He was told that no one wants to be known as a 'Fortune Teller’ nor will one ever become financially independent being a Feng Shui consultant.

But by the age of 26, just 5 short years after graduating he had proved his detractors wrong by becoming a self-made millionaire. And by 32, he runs a multi-million dollar company with business interests in education, consulting, publication, IT and properties - making him financially free. Dato’ Joey stayed true to his immense passion for the subject, which is the driving factor of all that he has accomplished today.


As an avid student of life and Chinese Metaphysics himself, Joey has devoted himself to uncover the authentic systems and classical schools of thought. Throughout his professional career, Joey has taken on the approach of a student and practitioner at the same time. He is probably the only active professional consultant who is well versed in Qi Men Dun Jia, Xuan Kong Da Gua, Flying Stars, Eight Mansions, BaZi, Yi Jing and Face Reading. Joey Yap is an ardent believer in the motto ‘walk the talk’. He practices all that he preaches and applies every aspect of metaphysics on his own businesses and investments before using on his clients to teaching them to students.

In his journeys around the world, Dato’ Joey does not see himself as only a teacher. He devotes himself as a facilitator for transformation to the individuals he meets. He also makes it a personal mission to learn from each of them meaningfully as masters of their realms. This includes personas such as business tycoons, performing artistes and political and business leaders.

This foundation is evident in the conglomerate of business ventures, which Dato’ Joey manages and own across various industries including education, publishing, services, real estate and information technology.


In 2008, Dato’ Joey was listed by The Malaysian Tatler as the Top 300 Most Influential People in Malaysia and Prestige’s Top 40 Under 40.

In recognition of his contribution to the industry, society and country, Joey was conferred the Darjah Indera Mahkota Pahang (DIMP), a prestigious award which carries the official title of Dato’ in 2013.

In 2014, he was named as one of The Inspiring Top 10 Young Malaysian Millionaires by RHA Media, a publication on the high achievers and affluent societies in Malaysia.

Dato’ Joey has made key note addresses to audiences for the last 18 years all over the world – France, Germany, Canada, UK, US, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia, South Africa, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, The Philippines, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia to name but a few.
