Who run the world?
This is specifically true
with Happy Hive Solutions, Inc. Founded in June 2017, Happy Hive was created to
help other professionals and startup companies who are having a hard time
navigating through the rough waters of entrepreneurship, business formation,
and administrative functions to sustain the business.
“Happy” embodies the
culture and atmosphere that they want to foster both for employees and clients;
while the term “Hive” was derived from the concept of a beehive where bees
intrinsically work alongside to contribute to the survival of the colony.
We all know how awkward
it is when to be outside and our child starts throwing tantrums. We just can’t
control those judgmental stares, can we? What we love about Happy Hive is that
it is parent-friendly. Yes, you read that right! You don’t have to worry about
leaving your kids at home because you can tag them along. Isn’t that awesome?
We got to interview Mommy Reena Lebanan, one of the owners of the Happy Hive Solutions, to learn more about their space and why you should try them out.
1. What inspired you to start Happy
came from the idea that we, as mothers, shouldn’t be made to choose between
career and family, simply because we could do both at the same time. It may be difficult,
but it can be done with the right attitude and an understanding community, it
Another spark was the
thought that other professionals and startup companies within our circle had no
idea where to ask for help or how to sustain their businesses with regards to
support services. Combining the two driving forces, the five women behind Happy
Hive agreed to start a company where inclusivity, open-mindedness, and
transparency will foster and grow.”
2. How did you get the background and
skills necessary to run the Happy Hive?
skills, background, and experience of each team member of Happy Hive makes it
easier to run the company. Architectural design and construction, financial
management, research and library science, administrative management are some of
the background of the women of Happy Hive.
But of course, we have
the best teacher around – experience! Nothing beats doing something and knowing
that you could do better this time around because you already have almost the
same experience before.”
3. What are the biggest challenges
you had when starting the Happy Hive?
challenging part for us was wearing different hats to sustain the company.
Aside from our main services, we are also the community managers of the
coworking space. With limited resources, we sometimes have to do things on our
own and this makes time management and organization tricky. Fortunately, having
great team members makes everything easier.”
4. How many are you in the Happy Hive
“Happy Hive is
composed of six women with different backgrounds and roles in the company. One
is our consultant and has a full-time job as a financial manager of another
company. There are two registered architects (Chief Executive Officer and Chief
Creative Officer, two members who have a background in Library and Information
Science (Chief Operating Officer and Administrative Officer), and one with a
background in commerce and management (Chief Administrative Officer).”
5. In case of power outage and internet
interruption, how do you keep your business running?
“In case of power
outage, we set up a backup light source (candles, emergency lights) and we have
a backup internet also. Most of the time, coworkers wait it out ‘til the
electricity comes back so they could work comfortably with air-conditioning,
proper lighting, and fast internet.”
6. Whom do you seek advice from for
“We seek advice from
different entities and people. For legal matters, we go to lawyer friends, for
financial matters, we seek advice from relatives who have strong background in
finance and investment. It depends on what information and advice we need.
There are times we talk it out amongst ourselves to give each other advices
within the team. We are avid readers so whenever we need some advice, we also
refer to credible articles and books.”
7. Why do think your customers select
you over your competitors?
“Customers select us
because we have competitive pricing and we have created a culture of inclusion,
open-mindedness, and transparency. They go back not only for the amenities, but
also for the people in the community who have grown accustomed to working with
each other harmoniously with a sense of camaraderie.”
