#75 Simply Smart Business with Gemma Went

Episode #75 Simply Smart Business with Gemma Went

Today I am happy to have Gemma Went with me. Gemma and I have been friends online for quite some time, but we don’t get to spend much face time together, so we were so excited to have this chance to speak over video! Gemma Went is a Digital Marketing & Online Business Consultant who works with small business owners to help them bring their dreams to life online. She won an entrepreneur of the year award for her first business 10 years ago, a digital marketing agency, before becoming the Social Media Director at two London agencies. She regularly speaks and writes on the topic of business strategy, social media and digital marketing.

Our conversation today is focusing on how Gemma got her start in online business. She’s had more than one business, but she started her current business 3.5 years ago when she was pregnant and found herself without a job. She really had to make things work. We also talk about the importance of having multiple income streams when you are self-employed and Gemma’s suggestions for getting yours started.
