MANILA - Some people advise against doing business with family and friends, but three sisters, who also happen to be partners in cosmetics brand Inglot, beg to differ.
Sisters Michelle Laverne Lim-Gankee, Hazel Laverne Lim-Lee Hok, and Pauline Lim admit that sometimes there are quarrels between them, but they never allow these misunderstandings to get serious or get in the way of their business.
"We usually get along because, maybe, our personalities are like that. We listen to each other and then maybe we think it over before doing any decisions, " said Hazel Lim-Lee Hok, president of Laverne Luxe Group which brought the Inglot brand to the Philippines.
Lim-Gankee, the firm's VP for finance and operations, says it's also important to respect each other's opinions.
"We know what to say to each other that will pacify or not make (things) worse," said Lim-Gankee
Pauline Lim, VP for sales and marketing, says it also helps to know each other's strengths.
