This Week's Entrepreneur Spotlight Falls On: Vanessa O'Brien, Gold Coast Pet Sitting
Vanessa is a true entrepreneur – she set up her business doing something she loved, but took it seriously as a business concern from day one. She plans everything; she is organised; she delivers what she promises and she isn't afraid to ask for the sale. She knows her business is all about the customer and she successfully self-promotes and gets to know her customers, business affiliates and competitors alike. Her strength is in becoming an expert in her field thus giving her a competitive edge. She knows the importance of self investment; she knows what she's good at and what she's not and delegates accordingly. She knows the importance of working “on” her business and not just “in” her business. She constantly follows up and keeps her business in the spotlight. She knows its relatively easy to sell one service; her skill and focus is retaining the customer, always.
Vanessa was nominated by Maria Linsley
