It isn't who you are that holds you back, but who you think you are! I believe my personal success and my agencies success with campaigns is heavily linked to mindset. Hiring based on passion and grit rather than experience - finding those people that dare do what others says isn't possible!
I won a bunch of awards before I was 35
“Best Newcomer”- B2B Marketing Awards
“Best Use Of Technology” - Blackberry Woman & Technology
“35 women under 35” High Achievers List - Management Today
Search Personality of the Year - UK Search Awards
I started my own SEO agency at 31
On my own. No Partners. No Funding..
Grown the agency to become a successful
and profitable business.
In the last 12 months the agency
has won 10 awards
Did I manage to do that because of:
I am dyslexic
My grades at school were; “meh”
I dropped out of university
My family was bankrupt (twice!) when I grew up
I had an alcoholic parent
I had my first baby at 26
I started the agency in the height of the recession
I had my second baby in the first year of business
Oh and my IQ is totally average (sadly)
