What's it like to work at Marketing Eye

It’s my first day working in the Sydney office of Marketing Eye and I’m feeling a mixture of emotions; nervous, anxious, overwhelmed but most of all excited. Excited for this new chapter of my working life, excited to meet my co-workers, excited to face some new challenges and most of all excited to be working in a dynamic, engaging and creative environment such as Marketing Eye.

I had learnt so much theory on marketing at Uni that I thought it was time to put it into action. To say I was nervous before my first day at Marketing Eye would be an understatement, especially not knowing what to expect.

Are women afraid to lead by themselves?

Entrepreneurship can be the toughest gig in the world especially for a woman. Without playing the 'female' card, there are many different issues that women face when making the courageous decision to be an entrepreneur - and most of it is about their mindset.

Did it ever occur to you that perhaps the only thing that is holding you back from realising your dreams is your mind? Not your capabilities. Not how much money you have in the bank. Not how you grew up. Not the job you are in.

We have four (4) gun marketing interns in our Sydney office, and given that they seemed to love chatting to each other and working together, we gave them a task to write a blog. We didn't expect quite this though...

Being a marketing consultant is insane

Being a marketing consultant is truly insane. Trying to explain what you do on a daily basis, is like talking another language to most people that are not in the industry - and for reason. We all work at different levels and few of us really talk to each other about marketing because everyone wants to be the top marketing expert that clients go to for advice.

The big secret about my life

When you spend years soul searching, trying to figure out why God put you on this planet and what you are meant to do with your time, you can falter in a lack of understanding.

Mostly, the lack of understanding is of who you really are, and what is your purpose. Many people espouse to know what their purpose is, but how many of those same people can put their hand on their hearts and say, that this is why they were put on earth, and follow through with that mission until the very end?

It's 2 a.m. in the morning. I lay awake having just flown in the day before from Los Angeles. My eye's are sore, and somewhat tired, but my mind is wide awake. I can't seem to get back to sleep. I get up and get a drink from the fridge.

If you have read this blog for a while, you may have realised that I am a country girl. I grew up in rural North Queensland in a small township called Charters Towers, just over an hour west of Townsville. It seems like a million years ago now, as I have been living in big cities for the past 20 years or so. I currently reside mostly in Melbourne and from there I have built a multi million dollar international business. What I have realised about business is that the  more mature my business becomes, the more flexible I am with where I work from. It certainly has got me thinking about where in the world people can build successful businesses from and what are the hurdles that they must overcome if they are not located in a major city.

I've always been aware that I have all the things in life that are necessary to become successful; mentors, learning and development, financial stability, and a community... and the right mindset. But it wasn't always that way, and the first thing that you need to know about being successful is that you have to have the right mindset and belief that anything is possible. It takes so many parts to be successful, but I guess for most of us, it just starts with a dream.

The most amazing thing happeneda few days ago. I went to a pool party in Atlanta and a guy came up to me very excited at the opportunity to finally meet me. He had never met me before, but had heard things about me. But his real reason for wanting to meet me is that he is a "fan" of my blogs, tweets and really anything I put on social media.

Not the creepy type of fan. The genuine person who appreciates honestly, vulnerability and someone who is fearless in sharing her real life.

So, I thought I might start a few blogs about who I really am.

The mentor

To use this word seems strange to me because I feel like I am not old enough or experienced enough to be anyone's mentor, but it just so happens that I am a mentor to a lot of people and that is something I have to take seriously.
