Running your own business can be a wild ride of highs and lows. It can also be discouraging when you don’t see much success in the beginning after you have put in hours of work every week. In this session, Emery Fung will discuss how time management and motivation can help you:
- Understand your inspiration to start your own business in order to stay motivated
- Manage your day job and your side hustle in the early days of starting the business
- How to stay positive when the results are not as expected
About Emery Fung
Emery “helps humans to love what they do.” He has a strong passion in building community, and his joy so far has been in working with people. He was born in Hong Kong and studied in the UK since the age of 9, and then returned Hong Kong to kickstart his professional career.
Having been in recruitment for over 7 years within the Professional Services Space, he has built a strong network and on the basis of finding the right people and starting the right conversations. He is very curious about what makes a strong culture in a firm by identifying and understanding the underlying values and beliefs. This was how Awkward Turtle At Work podcast was born.
As an interview style podcast, Emery talks to people who choose to pursue an unconventional career path in order to be their authentic self. The goal is to share these stories and along the way inspire people to have a better relationship with work and encourage people to really think about why they work. The ultimate goal is to help you find the ‘Work Lifestyle’ that suits you!
Ready to launch!
We love entrepreneurs and small business owners at Honeycombers, which is why we’ve created Launchpad, a comprehensive digital networking platform (with IRL benefits, too) that encourages connection, business support and community. It is designed to make the entrepreneurial journey not only easier, and more successful, but also a whole lot more fun. The platform offers almost daily activities for members to connect, along with regular masterclasses, member networking roulette, small-business mentoring and media profiles on Honeycombers.
Founder of Honeycombers and Launchpad, Chris Edwards (she/her) shares: “I know personally how hard it is to start a company, and find a business community, business mentors and key business resources as a start-up entrepreneur. There is so much on-the-job learning (read: learning the hard way). Launchpad is everything I would have wanted in my first five years of operation. I hope that with this new community platform we can reduce stress, increase community, and support entrepreneurs to achieve their daring ambitions.”
Launchpad is the first business networking platform targeting entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and Singapore, offering both a local market, as well as a pan-Asian approach to community connection. It is inspired by the growing international trend of people joining digital-first community membership groups, as a result of COVID-19 and the increasing need for connection, networking and support for entrepreneurs.
