Meet Karen Leslie, our new Mount Gambier member

Our first member from Mount Gambier, Karen Leslie, originally didn’t want anything to do with computers when her Dad told her in the 1980s that they would be the next big thing.

Who would have thought that she would go on to found and run Mount Gambier Website Design.

What does your business do? I help smart business women with their dumb WordPress websites. During a 15 minute complimentary call that can be booked through my website, we can plan what is needed to help someone with their website. It can be 1:1 training, support, website maintenance or even a website re-design.

What area do you serve? Australia and the UK.

How long have you been in business? 10 years

Did you found the business? Yes in 2009.

Please provide up to 5 dot points about your business journey:

  • I believe that EVERY micro and home based business deserves to have a website that works for their business.
  • I started my business creating my own website and then for friends and when I moved to Australia a local women’s business network asked me about their website.
  • I didn’t originally want anything to do with computers when my Dad told me in the 1980’s that they would be the next big thing 🙂

Name two things you’ve learned from your business journey?

  • I’ve learnt that it doesn’t matter where you start, you can still get where you want to be.
  • Success is different for everyone, and it’s important to have your own definition of success.

Why did you join the Women in Business Network? Living in a regional area, the opportunity to meet other business women in other regional areas is a no brainer for me.
