Vanessa is an innovative business leader committed to providing valuable guidance, support and the neccessary enivronment to help New Zealand business women succeed. Her ability to strongly understand and leverage the power of relationship marketing is a crucial contributor to her success.
Vanessa believes we are meant to follow our passions. Her passion for professional organising led her to start a home based business in Tauranga ‘The Clutter Coach’. She experienced the challenges with owning and building her own home based business. She also discovered how challenging it was to grow a small business effectively on a limited budget. With professional organising still in its infancy as a profession in New Zealand, Vanessa decided to broaden her horizons and look for opportunities she could apply her organising & facilitation skills to. She discovered her passion for small business and for bringing businesswomen together to support one another.
From here the concept of the Venus Network was born.
Being in business on her own, she missed the support, encouragement and business friendships that came from working within a team. At the beginning of 2008 Vanessa launched the first Venus Group in central Tauranga.
Bringing like-minded women together to help one another grow successful businesses is her passion and the essence of the Venus Network. Vanessa’s passion for small business has created an environment where women feel supported, can grow their networks, their businesses and ultimately themselves.
Vanessa has created this company on the foundation of her purpose:
