Several times a year, the industry hosts an event somewhere around the globe that honors top achievers, and this year a spectacular event is planned in South Africa. It is here that the owner of Haywire, Danielle Hay has been asked to speak about her journey as an entrepreneur.
“Haywire was my lifelong dream. I have always wanted to be in marketing and I have always known that I would be an entrepreneur. That’s the kind of spirit I have, and I love to forge new ground. I actually began my journey as an entrepreneur at the age of 19 and since then I have learned much along the way,” says this amazingly energetic woman who has done much to get to where she is today.
As the founder of Haywire, Danielle Hay is not only fulfilling her lifelong ambition to be an entrepreneur; she is also working with some of the most successful small to medium-sized businesses in the United States and abroad. When asked how she was able to achieve so much at such a young age, the owner of Haywire says it’s all about focus.
When other young people her age were going out to parties and simply hanging out, Danielle Hay kept her eyes on her own personal goal and never lost sight of what it was she was after. “Of course,” she admits, “I had a very large goal and it’s pretty hard to take your eyes off something that big!”
This is the wisdom she would like to impart to today’s up and coming marketing entrepreneurs. Even when your friends are going in other directions and are spending time at concerts and socializing, you need to stay focused on your goals. She says that the road won’t always be easy because you will face obstacles along the way, no matter what age you are. However, she says that if you set a big enough goal, you can’t help but keep your eyes on it.
This year, Danielle Hay represents her very own marketing group, Haywire and is proud to be one of the guest speakers in South Africa where other top achievers will be honored as well. It was a long and winding road at times, but that very, very big goal helped her keep her eyes trained on where she was going. This is but one crowning achievement for the young entrepreneur and with her entire team, she is always congratulated for how far she’s come in such a short amount of time.
