Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Ingrid and I’m a business coach, marketing strategist for creative entrepreneurs. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 10 years having had a variety of successful businesses including a local business, e-commerce, a blog and online courses.
My passion has always been business since been involved in the family photography store from the age of 14 and I especially love marketing and entrepreneurship which I read at Trinity College, Dublin.
After a brief flirtation with finance post-college (zzzz) and in corporate America when I first moved here to the US (zzz x 10), I made the leap back into entrepreneurship with my business CameraShy. Now my love for photography and love of marketing blend perfectly together as I get to help and coach creatives just starting out on their creative entrepreneurial path.
Some random nonsense I felt called to share….
1. I am obsessed with cameras and photography and it bugs me that so many people have these awesome pieces of equipment and they don’t know how to use them.
2. I’m a bit of a gleek and I just love messing around with technology, my range of Apple products and of course my Canon gear.
3. If it weren’t for working alongside my dad I wouldn’t have such an awesome relationship with one of the coolest guys around or have been inspired and encouraged to be an entrepreneur.
4. That little shop taught me everything I know about business and marketing – the 4 years of university was just a rehash. (That plus about 60 million hours of chatting to my coach/sister/bestie)
5. One day when I was working behind the counter a fine young American man who was spending the summer in Ireland, walked in with a camera he didn’t know how to work. 13 years and 2 little girls later, here I am, living on the other side of the ocean.
