It all started with a road trip
Years ago I travelled to Adelaide with my partner, Josh. We stopped in a town called Kaniva.
There was a shop called The Purple Starfish and that's where I first heard the starfish story.
That story resonated with me so much, that years later I named our company after it.
Today I have an office in Albury/Wodonga and clients located across NSW and Victoria.
Find out more about working with me with here.
The Starfish Story
The Starfish Story is a story of an old man walking along a beach as the tide is going out. The beach is covered with starfish stranded on the sand.
As he walks along, he sees a young child picking up starfish one at a time; throwing them into the ocean.
The man says to the child,
“why are you doing that. There are hundreds of starfish stranded. You're not going to make a difference.”.
The child picks up a single starfish, throws it back into the ocean and says,
“It made a difference for that one.”.
I believe marketing can make a real difference to business; that we have a responsibility to make a difference in our communities; and that we can have fun along the way.
When businesses are successful and growing, communities are successful and growing.
So my Why is to make a difference – even if it's only through little actions, one starfish at a time.
Oh, and to have fun doing it. Because life is too short not to have fun.
Like the starfish story, let's make a real difference together.
Collaborating to build successful businesses and communities that thrive and have fun together.
Help businesses achieve their goals through marketing services that deliver results.
Create a positive impact for the broader community by being connected and involved.
Have fun in everything we do and make sure our clients have fun too.
