17 May Meet The Founders of A Space To _____.
As told by Co- Founders of A Space To ___ (above).
1. What is your business about, and what inspired you to get started?
We aspire to provide a friendly, cozy, art inspired shared space that benefits all who needs it. As freelancers ourselves,
we understand the importance of having the right place to work at without having to fork out tens of dollars each day.
2. What are some of the challenges you face as a small business owner?
The three of us quit our full-time jobs and without any external financial support, we have to rely solely on what we have in our bank accounts/ freelance jobs to gather our startup funds. Also, besides our own social media and some help from friends, we have almost little to no promotions. Thus, in the first few weeks, we have days where nobody turns up at all.
3. What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
When our regulars become our friends! And when people tell us they like our space and start joining in our crazy antics! The best thing about this business so far is the opportunity to meet so many fun & talented people.
4. What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur?
We don’t think we are considered successful entrepreneurs yet but if we really need to name three then perhaps it is… proper planning, passion, and modesty.
5. What are your hobbies? What do you do in your non-work time?
Our work/ non-work time is not so clear at the moment as we work from 10 to 10 each day. However, most of the “work” time is spent doing the things we like such as drawing/painting and other arts/craft related stuff. We just enjoy each others company and most of the time we get our guests to join in our activities!
6. If you had one piece of advice to someone who are just starting out, what would it be?
Do something you are really passionate about. Find the right partners. And you are halfway there and never give up!
