Thrivher Survivor Moves
Right now, you’re fulfilling a vision and a mission. Looking back, when was the first time you understood you wanted your own business?
My family are very entrepreneurial and my parents have launched many businesses over the years in all parts of the world.
I grew up in Bali, Indonesia, where majority of our friends and family were running their own businesses, from fashion labels to development firms, I was exposed to the world of entrepreneurialism from a very young age.
I commenced my career in media and advertising while I was still at university and I loved working in the industry, however in the back of my mind I always knew I wanted to start my own business.
I worked in corporate for 7 years and highly valued the mentorship I gathered from my colleagues. During this time I would often brainstorm with friends and family about different types of businesses that we could launch, from new technology platforms to e-commerce ideas. It was only in 2014 when I saw there was a clear gap in the market for formal social media education that I made the leap, and I have never looked back.
