What small business owners can learn from the young guns in the office
I have spent a few hours sitting around the boardroom table with three of our finest young creatives and writers. It's Friday afternoon and everyone is getting a bit restless. The week has been exhausting, action packed and high creative. I think everyone is ready to head home and relax for the weekend.

I get so much from the young men and women that work for Marketing Eye. They each have an individual story that is unique and they all have travelled so far to get to where they are today. Not just geographically, but emotionally and spiritually.

So, I posed the question: Tell me something that I don't know about you:

Rin, our crazy, fashionista who originates from Thailand and is the fastest, most creative graphic designer I have known:

"I grew up in Bangkok and I am an only child. I moved here when I was 16 years old by myself and I have always been on my own. I picked up English from my friends at school and am still today, trying to improve my speech."

What inspires you: interior design.

Manel, our cute as a button, illustrator/artist/graphic designer, who always brings with him a delicious lunch:

"I have a gigantic family. On my mother's side she has 10 brothers and sisters. Father's side four brothers and sisters. I am close to all of our extended families. Our family is scattered all over the globe, Philippines, Amsterdam, Germany and America. Every Xmas we each do a performance with every member of the family getting up and performing.  I get up and dance or intimitate a celebrity with a skit. It's funny and entertaining."

Chloe, our Brisbane Marketing Eye, is cheeky and is always picking up after me:

"I love to rock climb and have gone done 10 canyons already. I also went to eight different high schools and still passed!"

What inspires you: street art
