The Chief Mums of TGC

From Lydia & Jaclyn : For Parents, By Parents

Hello!

We are the mums behind Today Got Class and between the both of us, we have 3 playful boys aged 3,6 and 8 years old.

We are extremely extremely excited to be launching Today Got Class’ blog – it is the first of many initiatives that will be coming your way very soon!

So, we thought – as the first post – why not share some of our 喜怒哀乐 experiences – in Entrepreneurship x Parenting x Working Together!

If you didn’t already know – both of us are the best of pals. Some say – never work with your best friend but we couldn’t be more glad to be sharing the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship together – as a team and as best friends.

We congratulate, we commiserate, and hey – we even made bets against each other.

After all, we share common values – most important of all, we wanted to simplify parenthood. Parenting these days, can be overtly complicated and time-consuming.

And we strongly believe in – having fun doing what you love + honesty = a strong partnership.

Oh, and where do we start! The beginning was tough. Let’s just say, we had to eat the humblest pie. But well, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!

And yes, we are now super thick-skinned XENAS. Bring it on!

We did everything.

From getting feedback from friends and the parenting community on their recommended centres, to calling and meeting every centre personally, to listing of classes, to marketing, to accounting. Yes – all these and more shared between the both of us – who also had our own parenting and ‘wife’ hats to wear at the same time.

It was overwhelming. Yet fulfilling.

Because – if you don’t get down and dirty, you will never learn.

We have since expanded our team – with fellow mums. It’s all about “for parents, by parents”. Now, we do almost everything.

That feeling of exhilaration and excitement when we launched the website – is, incredible. And the same feeling bubbles up every time we launch a new upgrade, get a booking or a sign-up and when our TGC parents tell us “THANK YOU”!

That sense of awe when we are inspired by our own kids to kickstart discussions with partners. For example, the idea of collaborating with Hi-5 came about because Jaclyn saw how her son was grooving to the Hi-5 show!

That sense of achievement when we meet with partners who encourage our vision and our goals.

Most importantly, the bonds of friendship with centres, agencies and all who have helped us in more ways than we could have ever asked for.

And of course, a big thank you to the TGC parents who signed up with us, booked with us, gave us your thumbs up and recommended us. As a budding start-up, we are extremely grateful.

From the bottom of our hearts – thank you.

And we hope you would enjoy Today Got Class. After all, it’s a service for parents, by parents.
