We ask the tough questions
You’ve got a free half hour during your work day. What do you do?
Take it easy, read, do some gardening, take a walk.
What's the biggest thing you've learnt this year?
It’s probably the same every year – the importance of personal customer service and communication.
What's the best bit of feedback you've ever had?
Don’t get too wrapped up in your own problems.
What’s the smartest bit of marketing you’ve ever done?
Not spend a huge amount on marketing.
What’s the one resource you’d never be without?
Pen and paper.
What’s the cheapest, most effective bit of marketing you’ve ever done?
Probably blogging – takes a bit of time but it is effective.
What’s the best thing about being a soloist? And the worst thing?
Best – being your own boss.
Worst – being your own boss.
What’s the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
Always build a business plan and use it.
Where and when do you have your best ideas?
On vacation – wherever that is at the time.
What would be your advice to aspiring soloists?
Do your homework before you jump in to start a business. It requires commitment for the long haul and it requires capital. Both are often least considered.
What inspires you most about your work?
Watching our staff grow and our customers succeed.
If your office caught fire, what would you grab first? What would you toss into the flames?
Grab – our staff.
Leave – anything else.
And now comes the plug!
