It started out with two friends catching up on each other's life journey, over a great blend of coffee on a beautiful sunny day.
As it turned out, we had both left our fast-paced corporate jobs, and expressed how we wanted to make a big impactful change in our own lives and to other people and businesses.
Whilst sipping on our coffee, we shared some of our strengths, the lessons we learned in business and knowledge in our respected fields.
One being marketing and other sales.
It was a conversation that was going to change the direction of both our lives, we just didn't know it at the time. After our social catchup, we parted ways, little did we know an idea was being planted.
A few weeks had gone by since our catchup, a great opportunity presented itself for us to potentially work on a project together requiring marketing and sales expertise.
Had we not have made the time to see each other and show interest in one another's life, this opportunity would have never brought us together.
We met excitedly to discuss the project at hand, lashed our concepts out, the energy was high and we had coffee flowing from breakfast into lunch. The outcomes of our meeting would be far greater than we expected!
We realized we had something amazing we can offer to people and businesses which aligned with our values.
A project meeting turned into a revelation and start of a new journey and business. And after many months of planning and strategising, "Up Next" would come to life.
Always remember the power of connection in life and keeping in touch with people, you may never know what opportunity can unfold.
