Jayce Tham co-founded CreativesAtWork with her sister, Fanny, in 2012 and the two sisters couldn’t be more different!

Jayce spent years in the corporate world while Fanny was in the creative industry.

The two Singaporean sisters created a pool and network of freelancers in Singapore and across the region to help corporate companies with everything media-related and creative-related such as photography to graphic design, from advertisements to short films.

Unlike other platforms which offer freelancer matchmaking, CreativesAtWork's value is in the project management so that the creatives can be at their creative best!

Jayce and Fanny saw that the market was ripe for a new generation of freelancers. Freelancing was becoming a more viable option for many especially the millennials.

In this episode, Jayce and I speak about how she started and the challenges of running a media agency. She spoke about growing beyond offering project management as their business matures.

We spoke about:

  • What she wished she had known 9 years ago when she first started her media agency
  • How she and her sister navigate that tricky, slippery slope of being siblings who are in business together
  • The importance of working for others if your dream is to become your own boss eventually
  • How she looked at clients’ work in the early years versus how she looks at the work now
  • Her most important piece of advice for herself (and for you) and she said she wished she learnt this sooner and saved herself all the pain and frustration
  • The unpopular, contrarian opinion of dealing with difficult clients
