Influential Minds > Success Story: Andrea Martin

‘When I started my business, I was so excited about being my own boss, but I realised I needed help to get structure in place.’

Otherwise I would end up stuck in the role of “busy fool”. Since making the decision to work with Influential Minds I’ve smashed my targets and now customers ask to work with me rather than the other way around!


I was raring to go with my business and really passionate about my product but knew that in order to succeed I needed a lot more than passion. I knew that I needed to set goals and develop finance and marketing plans, but apart from that, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. That’s the thing when you start up a business for the first time: nobody teaches you what to do and you find yourself in at the deep end frantically trying not to sink!

‘Everything lacked structure.’

I had set a forecast but hadn’t developed goals and actions to support it. I wasn’t targeting my ideal customers and so spent time speaking to businesses who weren’t right for me and who either were never going to buy my product or who didn’t want to buy immediately. I didn’t make plans for the meetings I was attending to help me focus on the outcomes I wanted, so although I was busy, I wasn’t busy getting business.


Being my own boss was exciting, but excitement on its own doesn’t lead to sales or a profitable business.

How Influential Minds helped

I was fortunate because Farah Hussain was an old friend of mine and she threw me two lifelines. Firstly, she taught me her networking ninja skills so that I learned how to network effectively and who to connect with. Secondly, she introduced me to Paula Wingate and Influential Minds and that’s when things really started to take off. Suddenly I was on my way to swimming around the deep end in style!


What I’ve learned from working with Influential Minds is immense and almost too much to quantify. I’ve learned to be really clear about what I want to achieve. I’ve put proper actions, plans and goals in place, and in the process, I earn more and work less. I’m more productive and consistent and I procrastinate less. My confidence has grown. I know my numbers and how to look after my cash flow, and I know how many customers I need to speak to daily to achieve my revenue targets. My mindset has changed completely.
