Three months ago, I was still a fresh graduate feeling very anxious about job hunting. In the face of uncertainty, I got a job opportunity here at Garage Society. At that time, I just had a vague idea of co-working spaces.
The experiences that I had so far were really out of my expectations. Besides doing administrative work, I'm able to meet a bunch of awesome people from all kinds of industries, every day. I still remember that I spent quite a long time figuring out the diverse community of Garage Society!
I really enjoy working at Garage Society! As a fresh grad, I'm very lucky to have the chance to get to know people in different industries, organise events from the very beginning, attend some chambers' events, and learn about sales and marketing strategies. Working here helps me learn more about myself. As they assign me different tasks, I can understand my strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, I can improve myself, enhance my self-confidence, and develop a clear career goal. :) I'm also grateful that I can work with a team that gives me loving care and support all the time. :D
As part of our #BeTheChange series, we sit down and discuss how people and business have evolved, with change-makers in our Garage Community.
This week, we sit down with Michelle Hong, co-founder of Rooftop Republic, a social enterprise on a mission to introduce the joys of urban farming to the city folk of Hong Kong.
Rooftop Republic has been part of the Garage Community since 2018, and they have a rooftop farm on the terrace of our Wan Chai Lockhart space.
It was great to catch up with Michelle over sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and the joys of growing your own food.
The advent of user-friendly e-commerce tools has made starting your own small business easier than ever.
With so many people embarking on their entrepreneurial journey, we thought we’d give you a reminder on how to support small, local business owners.
We encourage everyone to be conscious consumers - whether this means voting with your dollar for locally farmed vegetables, or writing a positive review for the indie coffee shop in your neighbourhood.
Here are a few ideas to get started:
As part of our focus on growth, we asked the Garage Community what areas they would like they spend more time developing. It was very clear that you all wanted to dedicate more time to your mental and physical health!
Considering that Hong Kongers have some of the longest working hours in the world, it’s important to carve out some time for yourself.
Here is a comprehensive wellbeing toolkit with guides, recommendations, and resources for bettering your mind and body.
