Hello WA community! My name is Mara, and I am excited to be here and to get started...
Originally from a sheep farm in New Zealand, I now live in Scotland. Having left my home country nearly 20 years ago for a new adventure, I met my husband and as the saying goes, the rest is history. We have a 10 year old daughter, who is growing up fast and a lot of time is spent working, ferrying her around to her various activities and trying to keep on top of housework. I am also a huge animal lover, which is natural I guess, given I grew up in a fairly remote part of the world, where there were few people and lots of animals. My favourites are dogs and horses.
With a commerce degree in marketing, I have done the whole corporate thing, and worked in the advertising industry for many years too. I currently have a part time job as a Marketing & Sales Manager for an Aesthetic Medical Clinic and in March I also started my own business. I currently offer marketing services to small business who want to grow and develop, but are either short of time or don't have the skills.
I stumbled across WA when I was looking for reviews on something else, which is kind of funny when I think about it. I am a pretty scientific person, and usually very sceptical about anything involved in making money online - as you can see, I'm also very honest! However, something about WA captured my attention and I decided to look into it further. Because of the free membership, I have decided to venture into the programme and so far I am very impressed. I'm sure I will be updating this part of my profile as I move along the training!
I am very ambitious - both in personal and professional terms, but rather than setting exact financial goals, my main aim is simple - I want to have more money to travel to see family. I have a sister in Tennessee and family back in New Zealand, so would like to see them more frequently, and then if possible to travel in a better class in the aeroplane!
I am looking forward to becoming part of this community, and hopefully I can offer up some of my marketing experiences to help some of you.
Please do connect with me on the social media platforms to the right - the more the merrier!
