Supermamapreneur Sighting: Tjin Lee, Award Winning Mercury Group of Companies

So I met Tjin at Crib Society‘s Meet & Greet. I joined CRIB because I heard about it at Galboss Asia when Tjin was sharing on a panel. (I tell ya, Galboss Asia is like a gift that keeps on giving!)

Us at Trehaus, a Co-Working space with child minding facilities in the heart of town. Yeah, one of Tjin’s businesses too.

She has 9 businesses, founded Audi Fashion Festival, Singapore Fashion Week and CRIB (amongst other things), and is married with 2 sons. She founded her first business in 2000 (Mercury Group of companies) and built it up to what it is today. Tjin is also the winner of the inaugural Singapore Tatler Young Achiever Leadership Award 2010.

I love that I’m constantly meeting all these great women, and particularly those that are supermamapreneurs in their own right. I have so much to learn!

Being an entrepreneur can be downright brutal at times. Or most times. And it’s really important to be surrounded by the best if I want to be the best. It’s not just about having the mindset of successful entrepreneurs, but also the support that is crucial to raising businesses. (And babies).

Women like Tjin show me that it is possible to have a vision, work your ass off for it and come out the other side, alive and thriving.

I’m really glad that there are more and more organisations and events that are about women empowering and supporting other women.

I’m excited to get to know all these very cool women better. And I’m even more excited by what is to come.
