You know what they say: Don’t start a business with a friend. For Joshua Tan and Zoen Tay, who have been engaged since last December, however, they decided that starting a biz together was the right step forward for them.
“I must admit there was some trepidation when Zoen first told me she had her mind set on starting Zyu, and furthermore, wanted me to be a part of it,” Joshua tells 8days.sg.
“I’ve heard stories about how the closest of friends have fallen out doing business together, and even some family members [and] that certainly scared me. But I've also witnessed some power couples who thrive working together, and Zoen's parents are one of them. That encouraged me to give this a shot. While I understand it may be inevitable that our relationship will be tested by our business, I see it as a way of strengthening our relationship and spending quality time together.”
