TMP x #IWD2020: Tjin Lee

In light of International Women’s Day, we continue to explore the topic of femininity and women empowerment, something we’ll never tire of. We are so pleased to be able to feature these 5 strong leading ladies from different walks of life, as they manage tight schedules and life’s demands, just like our multi-faceted TMP lady.

Creator, passionate entrepreneur, travelholic; these are just some of the words we could use to describe Tjin Lee! Not only is she the PR maven of Mercury Marketing & Communications, the previous chairperson of Singapore fashion week, she also spearheads the education movement Life Beyond Grades. With 9 businesses under her belt, she still finds the time to champion female entrepreneurship as the co-founder of social enterprise, Crib Society. We are excited to see what's next from this stylish powerhouse of ideas! 

 

HOW DO YOU JUGGLE YOUR CAREER, FAMILY AND SOCIAL LIFE?

Firstly, by understanding that different things take centre-stage at different times in your life. Secondly, by creating the balance between priorities and lastly, by letting go of the guilt of not being perfect.

WHAT IN YOUR LIFE HAS BROUGHT OR GIVEN YOU THE GREATEST SATISFACTION OR FULFILMENT?

Traveling with my children gives me the greatest joy in my life. Being able to show them the world and share the wonder through their eyes. 

WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH, HOW DO YOU KEEP YOURSELF GOING?

By remembering that everything I have today, I once wished I had. Its a positive cycle of gratitude and resilience.

LOOKING BACK, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY AND WHAT WILL YOU DO AGAIN?

I wouldn’t change a thing. Instead of seeing mistakes, I believe in lessons. Everything you’ve done in the past has led in a way to exactly where you are today. And I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, I’m right where I need to be! With a daily reminder that everything I have today, I once wished I had. It is a positive cycle of gratitude and resilience.

HOW DO YOU KEEP YOURSELF LOOKING AND FEELING GOOD?

By not overthinking it! Embrace being the age you are, and dress-up for the “role” you wish you had, not the one you have!

WHAT WORDS OF WISDOM DO YOU HOLD CLOSE TO HEART?

You can have everything you want in life, just not all at the same time.
