Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.

Our founder, Ling’s favourite sport is weightlifting and she trains several times weekly at TG Strength. 

We gave away a pair of gym straps for Emily (Godley) Muskett to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease Association. The straps raised AUD 250 within 3 days it went live. 

Also supporting TG Strength during the lockdown, the head coach and owner Lester Ho purchased $20 vouchers for all of his members to go towards purchase of our gym straps. We have also provided a further 22% discount to support Ling’s peers at the Gym. 

Pets Haven

For every pet collar that we sell, we donate one to Pets Haven. 

Pets Haven is close to our hearts because Ling and her partner adopted one of their cats from this amazing establishment in Woodend.

Partnering with RMIT University

Firstly, thank you to Dr Jessica Helmi and RMIT University for having Ling as a guest lecture for one of their MBA and Entrepreneurship programmes. Our founder, Ling, appeared for the first time as a guest lecture in the first semester in 2020. It has been trying times for the University during the Coronavirus crisis and we saw a significant number of students deferring their studies. Despite that, there were still students who were keen in learning and accepted this challenge. 

In Semester 1 and Semester 2 2020, Ling provided lectures on entrepreneurship, branding, product and services. Ling talked about how her personal values are ingrained in the LIN8 brand and that it is pivotal to the work she does. Ling has also agreed to be an Industry Partner of RMIT whereby students can work with us in their assignments. 

Ling believes in contributing to the society and is inspired by Dr Helmi and her students. She enjoys sharing her journey and values with others, working towards making businesses better in this world. 

Thank you once again, Dr Jessica Helmi and RMIT University, including the Elders and Traditional Owners/ Custodians of the land, for having me as one of your Industry Partners.
