Tell us about your business (what product or service you provide )
We are a publishing house that loves producing engaging content. We are the proud creators of PakMag, a parenting magazine that has been running for over 13 years. We have published over 350 magazines and 3.5 million copies in this time. We also produce audio, video, and written content for our multiple brands, and that of our clients. This has seen me evolve into being a travel blogger, avid writer, podcaster, speaker, business advisor and author of two books with many more on the horizon! What started as a publishing company, is now a full service creative agency that has a strong focus on the family market.
What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to others?
The people you have in your business will make or break it. Look after your people, they will look after your clients and your business will grow. You are also the Golden Goose, so take care of yourself or everything else will suffer.
What one thing have you learned as a small business owner that has served you well over the years?
In my twenty years it’s definitely that tough times don’t last, tough people do. Value who you are and what you do, because if you don’t- why should anyone else?
Are there any resources or tools you’d like to share with other small business owners that have helped you run your business?
Any project, time, customer and financial management software is worth the investment. Try them and work out which works best for you.
What do you do for fun/relaxation?
Work! Kidding. I love cooking, hiking, dirt bike riding, diving, pilates, reading and singing/playing music with my husband.
And something on the fun side of things, what’s your party trick or secret talent?
I can trip up stairs or on perfectly flat ground sober.
