Vee Roberts launched her business with just £100 in 2013 and is a multi-award winning Brand and Marketing Practitioner, Author and Coach.
A mother to four children aged 8 to 27, she is also dedicated to teaching, serving and empowering business owners – developing credible, consistent brands and monetising them, using online and offline strategies.
As the Director of Insight@Marketing and Founder of InspireUrBiz networking events, Vee regularly shares her knowledge on marketing, branding and social media as Guest Speaker and Trainer.
After being made redundant, Vee to took a leap of faith, become self-employed and she started her own business. Working on contracts within local government and bigger public agencies proved to be something she really enjoyed. But still something was missing. She wasn’t free to do as she pleased.
Vee decided to become her own boss working on her own terms. It was a risk she was prepared to take, fed up with office politics and bureaucracy. With less than £100, she successfully set up her own business from scratch, using her own knowledge of affordable marketing solutions to make it happen. She was able to grow her business brand online and offline successfully. And, she now uses her 19+ years of ‘planning and hands on’ experience to make it happen for other business- owners too.
Her ethos is “working smarter not harder, whilst remembering that baby steps are better no steps”.
In this interview, Vee talks about not being afraid to take risks in business because there are lessons to be learnt. She uses the mistakes she has experienced in her career as a tool to resonate with her clients because she has been through the same things they have. Her passion and motivation is fuelled by her clients and, she feels inspired and empowered when she sees them succeed.
Vee stresses the importance of investing in herself and her business through coaching. She was initially reluctant to invest in herself because of the cost, but then realised it turned out to be more costly, in the long run, not to make the investment.
Vee believes the three key points to success are readiness, accepting responsibility, and commitment to work.
