Super Dads Talk About How Becoming A Father Has Changed Their Professional Lives

In the home and at business, fathers serve, protect, and persist. These three men, all of whom work for Southeast Asia’s most popular shopping site, are celebrating Father’s Day by revealing how parenting has helped them improve their personal lives and their careers.

“Martin: Changing into a better leader and a better father”

Martin Yu, the director of Shopee Philippines, has been directing teams since 2017 to help businesses migrate to Shopee and has witnessed the platform’s growth. While raising two young sons, Martin has noticed a common thread between fatherhood and leadership: the necessity to constantly adapt. Initially, I had to be more of a coach in the Philippines, but as the company grew, I had to adapt my leadership approach.” I worked hard to create an environment where my employees were encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas. Now, it’s my job to make sure that these goals are in line with the overall goals of the company.”

Parenting Martin is a constant process of adjusting to the ever-changing requirements of his sons, who have grown up so quickly. “I try to be a good friend to my kids and encourage them to explore new things. Now that my sons are growing up and discovering their passions, I talk to them as if we are old friends. I want to help them find their place in this ever-changing world. Knowing what’s coming, I know I’ll have to adjust even more as they grow into young people.

Martin hopes that his efforts will inspire his children to follow in his footsteps and pursue meaningful careers. When it comes to teaching my sons about the importance of meaningful employment that has a positive impact on society, I believe it’s never too early to start.

Michael: Creating a More Meaningful Workplace

Michael, like his father, worked as an overseas Filipino worker in Taiwan until joining Shopee Xpress two years ago as a partner rider. His father and son’s relationship was primarily based on online video conversations when he was growing up, which made it difficult for him to develop a close bond with him. When Michael became a father for the first time four years ago, he realized that he needed to be more involved in his daughter’s life.

Michael’s two young children, ages two and four, will benefit from his increased involvement in their life as a Shopee Xpress partner rider. To help support my family in the event of another pandemy, I made plans to fly to Taiwan and stay with family there. As a Shopee Xpress rider, I’d want to extend my sincere gratitude to the many parents and children I’ve had the pleasure of meeting throughout the course of my work. Due to the fact that I’m here, my life and work have more meaning.” ) I had intended to return to Taiwan to help support my family before the pandemic. Every day, I am thankful for the opportunity I have as a Shopee Xpress partner rider. Having the opportunity to be a part of their lives has given me a greater sense of purpose and meaning in my work and personal life.)

One of Michael’s greatest accomplishments is being a present parent in his children’s lives. “Ang aking mga anak is my greatest source of inspiration at home. In the context of their daily lives, I was able to identify myself as their tatay. “Ipinagmamalaki ko,” I said. (My greatest source of motivation in life is my family.) That I can now better fulfill my job as a father is extremely meaningful for me.)

As a Father and a Salesman, Mark is always doing his best

It was only after becoming a father that Mark discovered what it truly takes to put in the hours. Nine years ago, he was on the verge of losing his daughter to biliary atresia, a rare liver ailment that necessitated an expensive treatment in another country. Mark has been able to provide for his family’s needs, including his daughter’s regular medication, by selling handmade pillows on Shopee’s platform.

“Nine years ago, I fought to become a father, and I fight for my family every day,” Mark said as a father and a seller. It wasn’t easy to gain customers when I started my internet business, but I persevered and gave it my all to make it happen. My family has been able to accomplish many goals thanks to the money we’ve made selling on Shopee, such as constructing a house and a warehouse. My passion for my family is the driving force behind everything I do, whether it’s running a business or being a husband and father. Even today, I continue to give my all for my family and my customers,” he says.

Because they’ve accepted their responsibilities as fathers, Martin, Michael, and Mark have developed a deeper understanding of what it means to be an employee of Shopee and a partner of Shopee Xpress. Both at home and at work, they have been able to make a positive impact on the lives of others thanks to their meaningful careers.
