Today it is with lots of mixed emotions that I announce it is my last day with Mortgage Mates. It has been an incredible 4 years and I’m so excited to watch where the business goes from here!
When I think back over the last 4 years, I’m so proud of everything we’ve achieved – from turning an idea into a live website with active customers, presenting at the National Housing Conference in Darwin, being accepted into the London Trade Week and participating in some amazing accelerator programs – and everything in between! We’ve worked through balancing full time work, different time zones, both founders getting married and not to mention a worldwide pandemic!
It has been a truly incredible experience that has taught me so much personally and professionally. I have learnt about the hard work and commitment it takes to run a start up and start something that is your own, but also the huge rewards in achieving something that is truely yours. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity and will never forgot these last 4 years and the impact it’s has had on me. It is no easy feat getting something off the ground and I have so much appreciation for start ups and small business owners – you truely have to pour your blood, sweat and tears into it to bring something to life!
While it has been an incredibly tough decision to leave Mortgage Mates, I’m looking forward to focusing on personal growth and challenging myself in new areas. The reason I co-founded Mortgage Mates is still so important to me. I am passionate about seeing positive social change in this world and this will continue to drive me in my next adventure. The world is in such a turbulent place right now, with so much to do and I am committed to continuing to have a positive impact on those around me. While I haven’t figured out exactly what’s next, I’m excited for a new challenge.
To my partner in crime Daisy – it’s been an incredible 4 years working together and I know you’ll continue to achieve amazing things! It all started as a pie in the sky idea over a few beers at the pub, but together we were able to bring it to life developing a website that helps to bring people together who would otherwise be priced out of homeownership – without all your hard work this wouldn’t have been possible. It has been an absolute pleasure working alongside you and your passion to see positive change in the housing sector has continued to inspire me. Your passion and commitment to this space is second to none, you’ve already achieved so much and I’m so excited to see where Mortgage Mates goes from here!
So watch this space – it’s just the beginning and some very exciting times are ahead!!
Until next time…!
