    #77 Creating a Connected Community with Ashley Matkovic

    #77 Creating a Connected Community with Ashley Matkovic

    In this episode of the Committed Creative Podcast, I interview Ashley Matkovic, the founder of one of Perth's biggest business networking groups, Fusion Biz Co.

    Ash shares her journey over the past seven years - from quitting the corporate job she hated to navigating an events business during covid.

    Possibly my favourite moment from the podcast was when I asked Ash if she'd ever envisioned Fusion growing as big as it's become, only for her to answer with a resounding 'yes'.

    I friggin' loved that confidence and self-belief that Ash knew she was going to create an epic community for women before she'd even done it - I believe it's this mindset that has got her so far.

    In the podcast, Ash talks about:
    🌸 How she started Fusion to create a space where women can have authentic conversations and connect on a deeper level.
    🌸 The challenges of running a business, including feeling lonely and not having a support network, which is why Fusion is so important.
    🌸 Her journey as an introvert running networking events, and how she has learned to step into her role as a leader and create a welcoming environment for others.
    🌸 Why celebrating wins is important in business, as it helps to acknowledge and appreciate your achievements.
    🌸 How the biggest challenge for many businesses is getting in front of more people and marketing their business effectively.
    🌸 Why mindset is a major challenge for business owners, and how having a supportive community can help to shift perspectives and overcome mindset roadblocks.

    If you want to learn more about Ash, check out Fusion here, and grab tickets to their Christmas do here.
