Nicole Ashby - BTB Ambassador
High-Profit Media is a small but powerful, heart centred business brought together by Victorian, award winning Entrepreneur Nicole Ashby. Like most small business owners Nicole was the same in sharing all the common challenges a business faces with her first venture: FIFO Families ... which later went on to become a globally recognised and trusted brand.
Built from the ground up on a shoestring budget Nicole Ashby learned by intelligently marketing her business to media companies in print, radio and television, she could have her message and strong value proposition marketed out for her - for free by them ... through large, targeted networks or people perfectly aligned to her business who would in turn become customers and create a platform for FIFO Families to grow upon.
Nicole is a dual 40Under40 winner, she also received the St Vincent award and was a finalist in the Telstra Business of The Year award in 2015.
