What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Normally, my children bouncing on my head! Also, the excitement of what today holds, and taking advantage of the hours available making sure I support my family financially. With COVID like most people I am working from home, and there’s no such thing as a quiet day in crypto or at Dacxi!
What advice would you give to a child about working life?
Get your parents to put your pocket money into crypto so you never have to get a job!
What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?
I have a few things I'm proud of achieving - of course my kids, and a (so far!) successful marriage. I have also represented my country in sport a few times.
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
My day always begins with a 9 am zoom with the partners for any Q and A and general updates both ways. I then move onto clearing my emails and messages to make sure no new partners or customers are left without the service they need. I have an array of zoom calls every day that vary with partners and new potential customers and in-house colleagues, to make everything we do as perfect and streamlined as possible. My focus at the moment is growing the partner network and preparing the UK sales channels for the upcoming ISA Launch.
