Since meeting Carrie-Ann in 2011 when my business was just an idea on paper I have not only given up my day job (August 2013) but have now moved into adequate business premises.
Although I was quite nervous about every aspect of self-employment, Carrie-Ann put an arm around my shoulder and guided me in the right direction. She doesn’t dress things up that they are not, she tells the truth. Not only is she a marketing genius, she is also a fantastic mentor.
I am not sure that I would ever have got to the position I am in now without Carrie-Ann’s vision and transparency. When building business relationships honesty is the only foundation and I have received nothing but honesty from the start.
The next year will see me buy more equipment and move into the wedding/corporate event marketplace. This is quite a tough nut to crack, but I can stand tall with confidence knowing that with Carrie-Ann’s backing there is very little chance of failure.
Thank you for these first few wonderful years and I am looking forward to many, many years of working with this exceptional mentor and friend.
