Marco is probably one of the few people we’ve met who have no issues with their work-life balance at all. “I have a very active social life. Regardless if it’s a weekday or the weekend, I always find the time to meet up with the people that matter to me the most. My best tip, I would say, is to work hard, but play harder,” he says. “There is nothing that you can’t do, but make sure one does not get in the way of the other.” It’s also great that Marco’s job allows him to make friends within his industry, and he’s maintained contact with almost everyone he’s worked with. “Aside from the fact that my line of work allows me to be up-to-date with technology and business trades, it also gives me the opportunity to meet and be friends with different kinds of people within the IT and investment industry.”
Marco says his general rule, when it comes to work, is to be patient. “It’s the one thing that I always say to people,” he says. “Also, you should grasp what you can from the kind of work that you do, and be good at it, but don’t let colleagues or anyone step on your toes. It’s never wrong to reason with people, so long as you have the right tone at the right moment.” Beyond work, Marco has a love for Chinese martial arts. “I’d definitely watch any movie that’s about kung fu masters, even if it’s without subtitles and even though I don’t understand and speak Mandarin. I remember collecting DVDs of any movie which had Wong Fei Hong in it.”
