How did I get here?!
Well.... I have my brother to thank for this.
He lead me here, he has been talking about Steemit for months.....I pride myself and being at the forefront of digital technology - I literally live on the computer and my phone. So how come it took me slow long?? I really have NO idea! I don't have an excuse.
I am Jacqui Williams. Creative, Resourceful. Business Owner, Digital Marketer, Mum to 2 gorgeous girls. Partner to Garth. Into Crypto Currencies. Living life in full colour. Traveler.
Serial entrepreneur - I have started from scratch 4 successful businesses, Wedding Styling, Serviced Offices, a Medical Centre, and now work Online. I may live in Newcastle NSW, but my mindset is global.
Am passionate about travel, as an Australian I almost think it is a right! It takes us so long to get anywhere on this planet, I think maybe is why us Aussies take off around the globe for a couple of years at a time - I certainly followed that well flown route to London on QF1, several times! Have been fortunate enough to travel extensively, Hong Kong is my favourite place on this planet - I love how East and West merge in a kaleidoscope of colours, textures and smells.
Completed a Masters of Art, being a starving artist didn't exactly turn me on, so I monetized my creativity by decorating weddings for the last 18 years - but those days are nearly over and is time to move on. Started making the transition to working online a couple years ago, and I absolutely love it.
If you want to see me happy, stick a paint brush in my hand, a nice big juicy tube of oil paint on the table, with a fresh white canvas in front of me. I can't decide if I prefer painting flowers, or social commentary. A nice glass of Chardonnay will also suffice.
If you want to see me sad, tell me that Roger Federer has lost a match. I will not take it well.
But my life wasn't always this great - a couple of years ago I lost almost everything I had due to a business deal going south. It was my darkest hour. But I was determined to pull my life back together, and I did!
How did I go this? But listening to copious amounts of podcasts - on mindset, motivation, digital marketing and healthy living. Changed to a plant based diet - made so much easier with the encouragement of my 2 vegan daughters. Am a green smoothie connoisseur.
But sometimes our life has to fall apart in order for the good things to happen to us - this is certainly correct in my case. I would not be in the happy place today, if I had not been to hell and back.
I look forward to contributing, creating value and getting to know you all!
