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
At Garage Society we believe imagination — the capacity to create and evolve — is crucial to how we operate, create opportunities for our members, and find new paths to grow.
As the world adapts, problems aren’t getting simpler, with today’s challenges requiring a more creative approach. From childhood, we’ve been taught that creativity is for some people, or that it’s something you lose as you grow older.
Today’s entrepreneurs do not like getting tied down and are inherently drawn towards options that let them progress at their own growth-plan. Personalisation and a sense of creative freedom has picked up the pace and is here to not only rule but also dominate the work culture.
As part of Garage Society’s Well-Being Month, we sat down with Dutch entrepreneur Madelon van de Ven, to learn more about her flourishing plant subscription startup and her mission to get more urbanites to experience the health and well-being benefits of plants.
