Life Long Learning

I have spent the last 6 months avidly learning all about running a small business. Covid has been constantly on all our minds, but there have been some excellent opportunities created by this global pandemic.

It amazes me that I can get terrific business advice on marketing, hygiene, sales and digital media creation from the luxury of my office laptop. Zoom has eliminated the commute to workshops and has allowed me to see sessions from the North Coast of NSW and beyond.

Most of these Zoom meetings are free, but fun and interactive. I have paid money for specific courses on Canva and an American home organising course over the new year. Both have been lots of fun, specially the one in a big international group. 

Running a small business is all about balance. I am hopeful I can balance applying all the new things that will make my business better with getting out and helping my clients to a new organised life.

road with learning never ends

Project Manager for Chinese Production

I was lucky to be able to work as a project manager for a business that sourced and coordinated manufacturing in China. It managed the design, production and QA for small bespoke projects. I loved managing some beautifully designed items, such as wall decals, tutu cases, vintage car parts, t-shirts and ratchet straps. It was truly eye opening working with Chinese nationals who would be the eyes and ears of the company in the South of China and finding out about their lives. It was team effort for me to produce Quality Assurance documents and for the Chinese arm of the company to use to QA the new products.  I loved the chance to learn about how to read a Pantone fan deck and calculate shipping costs.. Read all about it below from 2014.
