“Fake it till you make it” – You can look the part even if inside you are freaking out!
Sue Davies started her business in 1998 after looking for something she could do from home and balance once she had kids. She came across Business Expo and thought it was a good business that wasn’t going to break the bank, so she gave it a shot. Sue has now owned her business, Impress Promotions, for 22 years, where she provides customers with access to Australia’s largest range of Promotional Products!
The idea of Impress Promotions came about at a business show where Sue thought, “I can do this.” As she looks back, she loves the fact that her business started with nothing and grew to an easy to run business that works off repeat work and word of mouth. Sue has loved working from home and being present with her kids, who are now almost 17 and 20. Now, after 22 years, the isolation of working from home has finally got to her. Ideally, Sue hopes to transition to working on her business outside of her home and, one day, fulfil her love for travel by hitting the road and seeing where life takes her.
Sue would advise anyone thinking about starting a business “to go for it,” write down your goals and surround yourself with like-minded business owners.
