O’Connor Marketing Explains That Business Inspiration Can Be Found Everywhere
Sales and marketing firm O’Connor Marketing believes that inspirational stories are everywhere, and to be truly inspired, professionals should look outside of their industry.
Inspiring others to do something great is what makes a business successful, believes Sydney-based company O’Connor Marketing. The firm suggests that the world is full of inspirational stories and in order to succeed, people must find an icon or a person they can connect or resonate with on an emotional level. The two individuals whose stories O’Connor Marketing finds most inspiring are American actor, Charlie Day and Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and youngest ever laureate of a Nobel Prize. O’Connor Marketing says that their stories are hugely inspirational to anyone looking to overcome the odds and achieve their dreams.
Charles Day, most famous for playing Charlie Kelly in ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’, decided not to go for a job at Fidelity Investments after College, which would have been the more decent choice. Instead, Charles Day chose to go to New York to make it as an actor. O’Connor Marketing is fascinated by his story. Charles Day states: “Do what makes you great… Do what’s uncomfortable and scary and hard but pays off in the long run… Let yourself fail. Fail and pick yourself up and fail again. Without that struggle, what is your success anyway?… Don’t wait for your break. Make your break.” He did not wait for his break to come but made it happen out of his own initiative. Today he is a successful actor, screenwriter, producer, comedian and musician.
Malala Yousafzai has been a brave advocate for women’s rights since she was a young girl. Coming from Swat Valley in Pakistan, the Taliban gained control and as a result, girls were prohibited from going to school, to the market or even watch TV. Malala Yousafzai expressed her views to the BBC and got the world’s attention. Despite being on the Taliban’s hit list, Malala continued going to school. On one of her school rides, she was attacked and shot by the Taliban. Malala never gave up, she was treated in the UK, made a remarkable recovery and has been the recipient of many honours, including the National Youth Peace Prize, the Simone Beauvoir Prize and she is the youngest person to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Malala says: “Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow’s reality.” Malala remains a role model for many women all over the world.
O’Connor Marketing finds their stories most inspiring. A spokesperson says: “Both Charles Day and Malala Yousafzai, took risky decisions to build the life and career they wanted. They are role models for people of all age groups, all industries or ways of life. They chose the challenging route and fought for what they believed in, which made them great and unforgettable.
Based in Sydney, O’Connor Marketing is a promotional direct sales and marketing business running B2C and B2B campaigns on behalf of their clients. The firm works with young sales and marketing professionals and supports them to build the confidence, experience and understanding they require to accomplish their goals and build a successful future.
Being an ambassador for budding entrepreneurs, O’Connor Marketing continuously encourages people to look further afield for sources of inspiration and how they should refer to these sources when faced with difficulties. “These stories help us remember not to give up in difficult times and that it is worth fighting for something. They teach us to see failure as a learning curve and to never give up”, adds a spokesperson of O’Connor Marketing. The source of inspiration has been one of the key drivers for the company having built a successful reputation towards their clients and constantly finding ways to increase sales and push forward. As a result, O’Connor Marketing is currently preparing to expand into at least two further markets in the coming months.
