Hi, I’m Emilia, and I welcome you to my Lifestyle Blog, voted Top 5 Lifestyle Blog in Melbourne!
I use what I write on my blog to help inspire others to enjoy a more enriched and fulfilling life. As a digital consultant and co-founder of an award-winning wedding marketplace Capriess (Winner of “Best New Business” and Finalist for “Disruptor of the Year” award), I make a living doing more than one thing that I’m passionate about and I write about this journey and my experience in business on my blog.
As a digital consultant, I work closely with a small portfolio of incredible businesses, assisting them to understand complex data and trends, which I transform into strategies that drive and improve their online marketing across SEO, SEM, email, social, etc. As Co-Founder for Capriess, a marketplace enabling couples to buy and sell pre-loved wedding items, I’m responsible for all of the marketing, media and PR. My goal is to transform Capriess into Australia’s number one trusted wedding marketplace connecting more buyers and sellers and moving more inventory than any other marketplace.
My other passions include property, writing, public speaking, travelling and most recently spending time with my new baby boy, Hercule.
A bit about my background
Born overseas, I graduated in Industrial Design at the University of Canberra and landed a job as Exhibition Designer at the National Gallery of Australia. I resigned soon after to pursue a dream of being my own boss and opened a high-end boutique importing luxury leather footwear and handbags (which you can read more about on page 28 of the Australian Retail Association). Managing and running this new business was an incredible experience – something I’ll never forget. It triggered my passion for marketing, business and inspired me to study further and refine my skills to be able to live the life I want, which is what I am doing today!
You can read my latest interviews about my first business, working on Capriess as well as my investment property and wealth creation strategies on my media page.
