We ask the tough questions of Kylie Dillon, KDD Conveyancing Services
When did you know you wanted to start your own business?
The day I started my first job. I knew at that very moment I never wanted to experience that feeling again … and I did three more times after that!
What’s the biggest thing you’ve learnt this year?
- The ability to change your life rests entirely with you.
Your past does not have to define your future.
What’s your proudest moment?
Definitely when I received my first message from a stranger (via Facebook) thanking me for being her inspiration. I found it an incredibly humbling experience to know I was a positive influence on someone. I was proud of the person I was becoming.
What’s your number one way to wind down?
Cooking dinner, with a wine in hand and hearing all about my family’s day. It’s how I relax and is usually the perfect end to a crazy, busy day.
What’s the smartest bit of marketing you’ve ever done?
When I was walking through the streets of New York at Christmas time in 2012 I realised there was nothing to be gained by playing it small. If I wanted to grow my business (I only had KDD at that time) the smartest marketing I could use was my voice. So, I did. With that came personal growth also.
What or who has the most grounding influence on you?
Without a doubt, my family. When I’m with them I’m a wife and a mum and the chaos of my day subsides. They are the reason I do what I do every day. I often say I will never balance home and work life perfectly but I give 100% to everything I do. And after them, my business coach. He had enough faith in me for both of us! He taught me how to turn my dreams into goals, my goals into plans … all the while keeping my feet planted firmly on the ground.
