A few months from now, you will be hearing this from us again; Foreword will be celebrating our 3rd birthday in April 2020 and at this moment we are undergoing some reorganization within the company. We are relooking into our brand and our operations. How can we better tell the story of Foreword and how can we scale more efficiently? With regard to these areas, Nadi and I have taken bold and concrete steps to create a better Foreword in the months to come.
Here is my first time writing a blog entry for Foreword Coffee. Let me start first with my life story. I was an odd silent child when I have my autism diagnosis. I define all the odds to go to a mainstream school thrice. In finding employment, I went from 300+ applications to finding an employment program that told me that I cannot be in open employment.
This blogpost goes out to those who want to make a difference in the lives of others by joining a social enterprise startup and to create impact larger than what can be done by themselves. I’m not talking to the founders of the startup as the founders usually have the most compelling reasons to stick around their company with or without an end in sight and toiling the most nights to work things out. Employees, on the other hand, may have fewer reasons to commit to the same level as the founders, but there are gems who would take the leap of faith and make things work with the founders. Are you one of them?
Tomorrow I will be working at Temasek Shophouse (TSH) for the first time. I can’t believe it’s already been six months since I joined the company.
