Pauline Ng

A lot of the things about the world we live in used to be in the dreams of those who came before us. What we imagined or dreamed to create has always been what humans were already capable of. All we needed was a little patience.

In July 2009 when my mother and I first started Porcelain, it was based on a simple dream to do things the right way with two approaches. The first was in how we conducted our business — by building trusted relationships with customers and employees with integrity above all else. The second was to create a world-class beauty business to help people achieve healthy skin from within. Little did I know that it would be the start of a ten-year journey of deep personal introspection and revelations.

For many entrepreneurs, their business is an extension of them. Understanding themselves, finding an alignment between their heritage and beliefs, and realising the value of which their business is creating is the secret to finding inner peace. A good friend once told me only to read books that have withstood the test of time be, it centuries or millenniums. What you read can greatly influence your thoughts, which then forms the fabric of your character when you apply them in life.

For me, it started with the question of “why we do what we do?” It is our purpose and our core because we cannot possibly exist only to make profits.
