[Ep #109] Relationships and networking are everything!

Relationships and networking are everything!


My guest today says, “Leave a little sparkle wherever you go – make everyone feel special and important.”

Joining me today is Zoe Sparks.

Zoë has owned her travel, conference and event management company – Spectacular Events Pty Ltd – for the past 21 years. Her new division – SHINE Business Women – was launched in 2018 and is already making a huge impact in the area of professional and personal development.

Zoë is passionate about ‘women in business’ and reward and recognition which has led to her authoring three small business books sharing the tips and tricks she has learnt over the years. She also relishes her role as a mother to two teenage sons.

On today’s show Zoe is going to share:

  1. Surround yourself with the right people – relationships and networking are everything!
  2. It’s OK to make mistakes – this is how we learn best, to grow and progress from our failures and mistakes BUT we do need to try and give things a go
  3. Work hard – to be successful you do need to put in the hours, so make sure that you work in an area that you are passionate about and makes you feel good
