Natalie Crowe Designs is a Hunter Valley based website design business which was founded back in 2008. The business was originally created because of my passion for web design and my desire to work, however, I did not have my licence at the time and the pending arrival of my daughter limited my ability to work outside the home.
Holding my Diploma in website development, and certificates in business management. I felt that this combination and working for myself would be perfect for our growing family needs. We officially opened our doors 1 month before my daughter was brought into the world and it's been onwards and upwards from there.
I loved the diversity, the challenges, the ability to provide financial secuirty for my family but also the flexibility working for myself as a stay at home mum. I had a natural knack for the process of problem solving and helping others to find solutions that supported their businesses, and time and patience to sift through the constantly increasing "sea of information" available and offering the skills and knowledge needed in a personalised and down-to-earth service, which I hear so often, is so hard to find when working with larger companies.
Five years on, I am phasing through the next stage of my business. I am working in a career that still "lights me up" as it did in the beginning. One that gives me such drive and motivation. One that can see me "working" until the early hours of the morning, and still get up the next day, ready for a new day with enthusiasm and purpose. Whether that be a consultations for a new client, raising my family and whatever lessons life throws at me, I love my job and can't imagine doing anything else.
