Sonia Irani

Marketing Excelerator

I started my Marketing Career here in Australia 12 years ago after Studying Marketing and Advertising at University.

My first job was a great stepping stone for me and taught me what I needed to make it in Australia.

After working in big industries like Hyundai, Revlon and Valvoline, I realised my passion was working for Small Businesses.

Which brings me to my current role here at MaxMyProfit - a business coaching and education firm that helps Small to Medium Businesses achieve success as entrepreneurs. My role is varied; however my main focus is on Social Media Management, Podcast Production, Lead Generation Strategies, Content Management and Website and SEO Management.

I’m truly passionate about my work and always eager to connect with other marketers and share ideas and experiences. Whilst I enjoy all aspects of my job, I think my favourite part is coordinating the advertising and marketing for our events. It is also a bonus working in an environment that is supportive, friendly and continuously growing.

GARY WELLS

FINANCIAL EXCELERATOR

My experience encompasses small, medium and large businesses which include multinationals and corner stores, tradies and recruiters, importers and exporters, manufacturers and farmers. Whilst I started out Chartered, I swapped to Commercial before starting up my own Accounting and Management Consultancy which I was involved in for 5 years. After that, I opened my own Retail and Distribution Centre which I had for over 20 years

My experience includes being a member of the Australian Tax Office which helps my clients come tax time. My focus is helping business owners with their Accounting Systems and Cloud Accounting. I also assist business owners with their Financial Management and System reviews which I believe is an integral part of any business structure.

Chris Altree

Business Excelerator™

I started my working career at Westpac in 1983 in their IT networking department and then progressed to be a Midrange Systems Manager.

In 2001 I followed a passion and became a flying instructor. I love flying and really enjoyed teaching others to fly.

In 2009 I joined Computer Troubleshooters as a franchisee operating in the Ryde area of Sydney. I enjoyed helping home and other businesses get their IT working well. However, I realised that, although I was great technically, I didn't know too much about how to run a business.

A few years ago I did a short course about business from MaxMyProfit and then started with them to learn more about how to run a business. The lessons I learnt and implemented in my business were profound and helped me to grow my business.

I have now joined MaxMyProfit as an Excelerator to help other business owners learn how to create a business that will allow them to achieve their dreams

I am a passionate about helping others and creating joy and laughter in the world.

Mitchell Fewtrell

Video Excelerator

I started playing around with filming, editing and designing in 2012 because I enjoyed making short videos for YouTube with friends. I did this on and off for a few years, until I got my license when I began to take it more seriously in conjunction with my passion for cars. I started learning photography, and then launched an online publication at the start of 2016 with a friend doing automotive photography, videography and journalism.

Using this online platform doing photography, videography and journalism jobs for clients, I realized how much I enjoyed using my creativity to help other express what they were passionate about. And whilst doing this only as a hobby and a freelancer, I was working with numerous online automotive publications and businesses, some being based outside of Australia.

This ultimately led to my role here at MaxMyProfit, when in 2017 I was given the opportunity to join the team here and do what I enjoyed every day. My role here as Video Excelerator allows me to help businesses put out professional quality videos both in studio and on site, as well as doing Photography, Podcasting, Graphic Design, Live Streaming, Creating Marketing Material, Online Education Production and working with clients as a Business Excelerator.

Always being passionate about business and camera work means I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and I only enjoy it more and more every day seeing people enjoy and use what I create.

Aaron

Business Excelerator™

I started my painting business in February 2014 as I was sick and tired of working for other people and making them money. I was a great painter and decorator so I thought it would be easy to make my fortune on my own. What I failed to realise was that yes I was good at what I did but I had no idea on what to do behind the scenes to work on my business. I got myself into all sorts of trouble and not to mention debt. Luckily for me I answered a Facebook post from Max My Profit and started working with them to help me structure my business to get out of Debt and get ready to grow my business. I am now off the tools of my business and spend my time working on my business.

I was so impressed by what I had accomplished in such a short space of time using the systems and resources that Max My Profit has in place that I brought a Franchise to be able to help likeminded business owners to accomplish their dreams of having a business that works without them in it.
