Having grown up in a family of entrepreneurs it was almost inevitable that I would become an entrepreneur too. I started my first business in 1994 and have run three successful businesses since then; the core purpose of each business has been facilitating our customers’ wellbeing, creative expression and personal/business success.
After 10 years of running a successful online store, I began my new business adventure – Bright Crafts in January. This gave me some free time to follow my passion of supporting startup and micro businesses. Opportunities arose with the Hunter Arts Network to support their micro business members as well as the Hunter Region Business Hub to mentor businesses on the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme. I love being able to give these business owners practical help to make their business dreams come true.
Having a business mentor with practical hands on experience growing businesses and creating successful online stores has been a valuable asset to my clients. It is exciting and satisfying seeing businesses develop and blossom through participating in our training and mentoring programs.
