Despite setbacks, remarkable entrepreneur MARGARET TAM is surging ahead with her mission – to bring people together in love and keep them happy.

My dating business was driven by my entrepreneurial spirit and desire to help people. I had my first love experience at young as three, of course that didn’t go well but have be my sweet and sour taste at the time. Since then, I had a very strong feeling of love and of being in love,” explains Tam Suk Yin, Margaret, founder of Smartime Matching.

She adds: “With my life time experience in love, I found discovered that love in fact can work out in a very simple way. I work creatively and in a multi-dimensional way in matching. This because I believe everyone is unique, and there must be something good inside to be explored. Despite my Parkinson disease in recent years, I never stop in the business. Even more, I want to help more people because the satisfaction generated is a source of dopamine which can help me fight my Parkinson disease. I want to spread the positive energy and the faith in love to people around me.”

Besides, I am organizing a structured matchmaking courses. I hope to have succession of my knowledge in matching, to help people as many as possible. I believe Smartime is the first enterprise in Hong Kong that provides structure training in love matching business.”

You have to be persistent before you get success. Treat it simply, just keep doing until you get your candies! Secondly, you have to stay focused on the goal and do it with heart, and enjoy whatever the outcome.
