We got up close and personal with amazingly bubbly and work-driven, Adele Chow! At only 25 years old, she brought her dreams to work and founded content marketing hub, Sevenvault & social content community, SevenPie. (yep, Sevenvault & Sevenpie are actually siblings!) Adele is definitely a role model for all youngsters out there.
Hello Adele! Do tell us more about yourself!
I am Adele and I love food! I live a very fast paced life but I appreciate alone time a lot.
You’re an entrepreneur at only 25 – how did your first company, Sevenvault started out?
Cliché but true, things just start happening when I start moving. I’ve always wanted to be a business owner and Sevenvault is not the first business I’ve started actually.
Also as the founder of SevenPie, what was your vision of starting this social content community?
As I mentioned earlier, I believe so much in the power of content and storytelling. Besides having a dream to help brands tell their story, I believe every individual has so much more story to tell. Each individuals comes from a different background, went through many different stages in life hence I want to be able to create a platform, as a voice of our generations.
Spill the beans with us a few tips to curate perfect content!
I always believe there’s NO one type of a “perfect” content because each story has their own essence to it.
However, a story that is able to resonate with many, to touch hearts and to inspire others to take actions towards something, that – to me is a piece of good content.
Any interesting plans coming up for SevenPie?
Yes! Definitely. Something is baking and I can’t wait to reveal next week! Do stay tuned 😉
Share with us how the name ‘Sevenvault’ came about!
Haha! It was really random. Seven is my favourite number and I’m born in the month July. Vault is just a representative of Bank Vaults (kachings) and Church Vault (Protection and Coverings of the cathedrals) – which reflects my faith.
What about your second baby, Sevenpie?
I love the number SEVEN. And since Sevenvault is my first baby, my SECOND baby must have the word “Seven” la.. Sevenpie because.. I love food remember? Haha jokes aside… Sevenpie because I believe life is like a whole pie. It is your bits and pieces of experiences that will make your life whole!
Have you always been interested in social media/blogging?
Yep! Started off back then when I was only 16. There wasn’t Facebook or IG back then, only blogs. Loved every bit of it. Till now of course it has evolved but I love sharing stories.
What exactly does Sevenvault specialize in?
We are a bunch of content marketers that believes in strategizing the best ideas for brands, by connecting talented individuals or groups and create noise on different platforms.
Share with us your vision for Sevenvault.
I believe every brand’s stories deserved to be heard – the most creative way possible. And for people that work with us to know that their work is appreciated. That they will know that we do things intentionally, not for the sake of fulfilling certain message or client’s KPI without understand the core messages.
Any advice for aspiring business owners like yourself?
Work hard. Nothing ever comes easy and when times are tough, just keep going. At the end of the day, it’s not the final results that is pleasing but the journey and experience that will inspire and bless your heart.
“Never do things for the sake of doing. Go the extra mile, do all things with love,”
Tell us how is a day in your life like?
Hahaha! Meetings, meetings and coffee. Lots of coffee.
Other than content marketing, will Sevenvault venture into something new?
Definitely! But it won’t leave the angle of storytelling. We love content and storytelling!
What inspires you?
The spirit of Excellence. And entrepreneurs like Lim Goh Tong or people that didn’t have the advantage but yet making it in life.
Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
Hahaha.. Married? And running a few businesses while I travel around the world giving talks and workshop.
What is the ideal weekend for you?
Chill. Sleep. A nice breakfast 🙂
“Food makes me happy, like really, really happy – food is another way I seek comfort from!”
