Hey I’m Maggie - your creative instructor!
I was first introduced to the world of social media marketing in 2016. I was SO excited about the possibility of working online but I was really struggling with the lack of honest, authentic, and high-quality information out there for beginners. So before I even began working in this world, I knew one day I'd want to create the kind of high-quality resources for aspiring marketers that I felt were missing in this space.
Why my courses
My online skills have led to working with an exciting range of talented people, from sole traders to multi-million dollar businesses. And in addition to working as a freelancer, I've also worked in a digital marketing agency and an in-house corporate role. With this wide range of hands-on experiences, I am now able to teach impactful marketing courses designed with other creative overachievers in mind. So you can feel confident that my courses are made by someone who knows exactly how intimidating it can be to be trying to master 20 tools at once and stay on top of constant updates with each of them. And I hope to take away some of the overwhelm and make you feel like you're not alone in this.
Why I love what I do:
I'm originally from Slovakia, spent 10 years living in Canada, lived out of a backpack for a few years while working as a tour guide in Europe and have now been living in Australia since 2015. And my dream was always to be able to not be attached to physical office space and I'm so happy to say that becoming a freelancer has allowed me to continue my happy nomadic life and take my work with me to amazing places like Bali, Thailand, Cambodia and others.
But since becoming a mom in 2023, my vision of 'freedom' looks a little less like laptops on a beach and a lot more like just getting to spend more time on the things (and people) that matter the most. (Though to be honest, we flew with my son three times before he was seven months old, so travel is still a huge part of my life.)
Where you come in:
Now, my ultimate goal is to continuously keep improving as an instructor, empowering you to be excited about your future in the digital world, having learned valuable new skills within this exciting world of online marketing. :)
I couldn't live the life I live and do what I love to do every day without you, so from the bottom of my heart thank you for being here and giving me your valuable time - I can't wait to see you in my courses!
