E02: On trusting each other - Sarah and Schooling


About this episode

Excited to bring this podcast closer to home with this episode. We speak with Sarah Tang and Alison Schooling of Sarah and Schooling. This was definitely one of our most fun interviews, with the energy and buzz of their friendship almost oozing out of the computer. As co-founders and ardent supporters of Singapore’s literary scene, they are actively involved in designing books and publications across multiple genres. It’s so refreshing to see such young talent in the world of printed matter. When everyone’s moving into digital, here are two awesome ladies injecting life into an industry that others perceive as dying. Clearly, that’s not the case! Super stoked to have Sarah and Alison talk to us about their beginnings and how they’ve both grown into their business, their friendship, and their own power.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Reaching out to find a friend

  • Being more focused about the work you want to do
