I would like to meet businesses and industries who have yet to embrace the technology on offer. To meet people & give an insight on how these applications can possibly work for their organisations.
What do you consider to be the benefits of being part of a networking group?
Meeting new people, learning networking skills, learning new ideas and receiving valuable advice from business skills to marketing & business etiquette.
What has been your driving force over the last year?
To market and promote yourself with one company never mind two is a struggle, but i am determined to learn from failure, be open to change, this will allow me to keep on moving towards achieving my goals however small.
What’s been the secret to your journey so far?
Researching, learning & seeking new opportunities, sometimes doing it the old fashioned way - knocking on doors hustling
Who made the biggest impression on you when starting your business?
I haven't been around the business circle long for people to make an impression on me, so I have people who I may admire, Richard Branson for one. His values, beliefs etc. I had an idea like Richard and went for it, I discovered I had more drive and energy than I thought I had. Maybe one day I can leave an impression on someone who knows?
What one piece of advice would you pass on to those considering starting their own business?
Do your research, seek new opportunities and ideas. Set achievable goals! I like quotes whether it from sport or business coaches so one I remember is:
"Learn, but don't dwell too much on the past mistakes or you may lose sight of your future".
