After becoming a young mother in her teens, she entered a 4 year career in telesales leading her to find her true passion and purpose of marketing and communications. Commencing on a Marketing Management role via Global Telecoms giant British Telecommunications, she then went on to spend a further 15 years working in Senior Marketing roles for a number of companies, including public sector, national charities and SMEs. A period in her life which she describes as an enjoyable challenge she says: “Being thrown in the deep end, as a single mother too, I was successfully able to work my way up the Corporate Ladder. Doing so taught me a great deal about integrated marketing solutions and effective budget management”.
Redundancy in late 2010 led Vee to take a leap of faith, becoming self employed she started her own business. Working on contracts within local government and bigger public agencies proved to be something she really enjoyed. But still something was missing. She wasn’t free to do as she pleased.
Vee decided to become her own boss working by her own rules. It was a risk she was prepared to take, fed up of the office politics and bureaucracy. With less than £100, she successfully set up her own business from scratch, using her own knowledge of affordable marketing solutions to make it happen. She was able to grow her business brand online and offline successfully. And, she now uses her 19+ years of ‘planning and hands on’ experience to make it happen for other business owners too.
