In 2015, I walked away from what most would consider a dream job.
I was managing the digital marketing for a tourism body, where I got to cuddle koalas, go back stage to events and earn a great wage.
But my dear Pop was sick in hospital, and when racing to visit him in my lunchbreak one day, while stressing about getting back to my desk in time, I knew something had to change.
At the time, my evenings had started to fill up with work for clients who had approached me after seeing the results I was achieving for my employer.
And I LOVED working with these business owners.
It lit me up seeing the tangible ways in which a few tweaks to their marketing could really change their business.
So - with a belief that anything was possible, I handed in my resignation and set about creating my own version of a dream job.
It wasn't easy. There were many highs and lows. And I learnt a lot along the way.
But by the end of my first year in business, I managed to make more than I had in my full time job. I put on workshops, which sold out, and I was asked to speak at events and run private training sessions for organisations.
I also grew the Instagram for my blog getinmyhome.com from scratch to 10,000 followers in a little over a year, and have been featured in major international publications.
Through what I call "modern marketing".
Gone are the old days of traditional advertising and marketing as we once knew it.
Today, the businesses that succeed:
- Communicate in a way that connects with their audience
- Consistently give value through content
- Drive engagement and loyalty through their social media.
My mission is to help other business owners create the impact they truly want through these modern marketing strategies.
And it's such an honour to see my clients and members have their own "wins" as their confidence grows along with their results.
So if you haven’t already, join me over on Instagram @emilyosmond.
I look forward to speaking with you soon,
