Can't imagine we are already in the second month of 2015! 2014 has been a kind year to me. I'd finally become an entrepreneur (again), and with the help of my more than awesome team, as well as dear friends from the startup community, we have built what I think is the most sophisticated co-working space in Hong Kong. It’s been a lot of hard work and at the same time a great deal of learning; it’s true that you cannot have one without the other. I am often asked what has driven me into enduring the hardship of starting up yet another company and my answer is I enjoy the hardship! And no, I’m not crazy. If you love what you do, you will enjoy all the ups and downs, including the obstacles and challenges. You will see problems as opportunities to turn things around and failures as a motivation to improve. The point is you have to find that love. The kind that makes you unreasonably fearless and turns you into an optimist who processes life experiences through a grateful lens. Entrepreneurship is not unlike a relationship. It is sweet and fun at the beginning but it takes a hell of a lot of work to sustain it. I am glad to have Garage Society — fun, exciting, fulfilling, and something I’m willing to do what it takes to nurture — and I hope more people will find theirs. ~ ET
