My name is Trish Fehon and I’m an online marketing expert. I am a business owner, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, sister and friend. I am passionate about all things online, my family and Jesus Christ.
I have been in business most of my adult life. My first business was as a fashion dressmaker, I started this business when my children were small as I wanted to be at home with them. This transformed into a very busy party plan business in partnership with my sister. We then ventured into retail and opened a craft & retail fabric shop. This grew into a great little business that eventually became more about teaching women to sew in many creative ways including patchwork quilting, dressmaking and craft. We sold this business when my sister fell pregnant and because I had 4 young children of my own, we had to let it go.
I spent the next several years working in my husband’s accounting practice, managing the office and doing bookkeeping work within our client’s businesses. We eventually sold the practice and I continued working as a bookkeeper for our clients.
In 2006 I bought 3 Coffee News franchises in the Penrith, Hawkesbury & Hills Districts of Sydney NSW. For the next 3yrs I worked very hard in the print advertising industry building up 3 very successful businesses with advertiser waiting lists.
During this time I built my own website and starting learning how to market it online. I soon realised there was a bigger and better future in the Online world. Print media was in a slow decline and it became obvious that it was time to move on.
I started on a journey of learning. Over the last 4yrs I have attended some of the best & cutting edge conferences and courses in the world, run by people at the top of this industry.
It’s an exciting and dynamic industry. I believe we live in a very unique time – for the first time in history it’s possible for a small business to compete with big business. Online it’s not about how big your shop is, or how many staff you have – it’s about how relevant you are to your customers or clients and how well you treat them – online and offline.
If you are a small business owner, I urge you to take advantage of this extraordinary time we live in, don’t put it off, the opportunities are huge and can set you up for an exciting ride into the future. Call me on 1300 199 757.
