Tell us how you first got involved in with New Venture Institute…
I was looking for a place to work outside of my home office and I came across the New Venture Institute. I was totally amazed at what I saw when I visited and signed up straight away. It’s an incredible place with a great atmosphere. It’s an honour to work here and be associated with a progressive initiative. It’s also incredible to find something like this in the Southern suburbs.
Why did you decide to join a co-working/incubator space?
I work from home most of the time and it’s great to be able to work somewhere else when I really need to pump the work out. It helps me get into the zone when I feel I need a push, and it’s also great to have somewhere to go other than the local library when I need to be working in town.
What do you do for work?
Market Me Marketing offers affordable marketing solutions for businesses. Our services include Social Media Setup & Management, Campaign Planning & Management, Content & Email Marketing, WordPress Websites, Concept & Idea Generation, Ebook Planning & Writing, and Face to Face & Online Workshops.
Why is entrepreneurship important?
I believe entrepreneurship is about innovation. It generally involves some form of risk. We don’t just want to be running businesses, we want to be innovating businesses; creating a huge difference in results, impact and bottom line.
How has your business benefited from working at a co-working space?
Because I work for myself and my motivation is sometimes lacking (and the housework is always calling!), co-working has given me the chance to focus in on competing tasks in my business. Be it client work or Market Me work, it’s been great to be able to have somewhere to go and be in the same room as a bunch of other entrepreneurs – it’s very empowering and I find it helps me to get stuff done when I’m not feeling motivated or when I need a place with little distraction and great coffee!
What is the most rewarding experience you have had and what made it so?
My biggest passion is in training and educating business owners. It’s something that I love doing and it’s very rewarding. I love seeing people walk out of my workshops feeling empowered and excited to be taking things to the next level.
