1. Good day, how are you doing?
Answer: I am fine, thank you.
2. If you don’t mind, please introduce yourself
Answer: My name is Samantha McGregor.
3. Please tell us about yourself
Answer: Well, you already know my name. I was born in Guyana but I grew up in Toronto, Canada. I still reside there. I am a digital strategist and Email marketing expert. I help people generally, and female eCommerce entrepreneurs, in particular, to generate larger revenues using a clear and targeted digital strategy. As an expert in the world of digital entrepreneurship, I have a customer-centric approach to everything I do in this field.
4. As a business person in the large digital market, how do you stand out amongst your peers?
Answer: Well, first and foremost. I’ve been told that I have been gifted with the ability to make complex things seem simpler to clients. This makes it easier to work in my field, and also as a consultant. I also do not believe in the get-rich-quick methods other competitors use. I am very transparent, genuine, and hard-working. So, when clients see these traits in me, they want to come back for more. I cannot even remember the last time I advertised because most of my clients keep referring me to other clients. So, it is a win-win for me.
5. Who would you say has inspired you to become successful in life?
Answer: Well, I have met a lot of people in my life, but the person who mentored and inspired me is my former boss and CEO, Wojciech Gryc. He never saw himself as my boss but as a colleague. He always encouraged all of his employees, and I learned a lot from him. He is a big philanthropist, who commands the respect of people around him. He was the one who guided me and set me on the path to consultancy and business success.
6. What do you have to say to entrepreneurs who aspire to be like you?
Answer: I have three qualities; Tenacity, passion, and resilience. These three qualities are needed for you to become successful. If you truly believe, know where to look, and look hard enough, nothing can be hidden from you. If you possess these three qualities, no matter how difficult the journey gets, the qualities will see you through. Always bear in mind that challenges and setbacks are inevitable, and those are the moments that can make or mar you. You also need to be realistic when you set your goals so that you do not get frustrated.
7. What are your plans for the future?
I see myself owning and running a big Email marketing academy, where people will be trained on implementable strategies to become successful eCommerce entrepreneurs. I also plan to launch a podcast that will act as a platform for healthy interaction between the successful and the up and coming entrepreneurs. Also, I wish to give back to the community in appreciation for what I have accomplished. I want to be able to donate a million dollars to charities to support them.
8. Thank you, Sam. See you next time. Have a great day
Answer: Thank you and have a nice day too.
