What's been your most outstanding career/business achievement?
Personally, my most outstanding achievement is in deciding to embark on a career and to start studying at the age of 45 and completing my Diploma of Kinesiology. I have many business achievements but one that stands out in particular is being given a hand-written card from a young 8 year old boy who thanked me for "helping him to focus" and was illustrated beautifully with some delightful pictures.
What are your top 3 networking tips?
n Always listen with interest to the other person's story.
n If asked for contact to be made do it, do not forget. It helps to have a pen handy and write on their business card what request they made.
n Always make contact within a week to thank the other person for meeting and chatting. Not as a hard sell business request, just as a courtesy.
What's been your most successful marketing or career progression strategy?
I would have to say networking at Women's Network Australia. I always find that everyone is especially pleasant and always uplifting. Although as yet not everyone knows what kinesiology is they are gradually being educated, also by being able to have trade display tables, talking to others at the pre-luncheons and by donating a gift and being able to put fliers in the delegate bags.
What can't you live without?
I can't live without my family. They are my biggest and loyal supporters. After my family, my next biggest thing would be my 'fun card' (Visa) - just love using it!
What value and benefit have you or your business gained by being a WNA Member?
I have met some amazing people from authors to singers and entertainers. They have all been very supportive to me, a new business owner, and given very freely of their knowledge. I was fortunate also to be asked by a member to write some articles for her new newsletter, which has been a real boost for me.
