Hi, I’m Emilia, and welcome to my Lifestyle Blog (recently voted Top 5 Lifestyle Blog in Melbourne by Culture Trip). This blog was created in 2011 as a place online where I could write about my experiences and journey of how I make a living doing more than one thing such as working for myself as a digital consultant, designing jewellery, investing in property and managing another online business called Capriess (Winner of “Best New Business” by B3000 and Finalist for “Disruptor of the Year” by Australian Retail Association).
As a digital consultant, I work closely with a small portfolio of wonderful businesses. I assist my clients by helping them to understand complex data and trends. I have a passion for transforming this valuable information into insights that help drive strategies for my clients across their online channels, which in turn helps them to attract happier customers, portray a better brand online and of course, entices more customers to use (and love) their product or service.
I also love beautiful and dainty objects (thanks to my degree in Industrial Design) so to satisfy my design and creative side, I create unique geo-shaped fashion jewellery which is sold and distributed in over 30 stores across Australia and overseas.
When I’m not working on digital projects for my clients (or making jewellery), I work on my other online business, Capriess, a wedding marketplace empowering couples to buy and sell pre-loved wedding items. My goal for Capriess is to transform it into Australia’s number one trusted wedding marketplace, and to do this I’ve enlisted some help and am currently enrolled with The Entourage to teach me what I need to do to achieve this goal.
My background – Just a little bit more about who I am.
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 shortly after to pursue a dream of being my own boss and opened a high-end boutique importing luxury leather footwear and handbags. 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!
