We had the good fortune of connecting with Andrea Moxham and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andrea, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
From an early age, I knew I wanted to be my own boss. My mother ran her own company out of our house so I learned early on that you didn’t need to get a job and climb the ladder. Even in my very first job as a gymnastics coach at age 14, I always aspired to one day be my own boss. I continued to work for companies and in 2014, I started working for a marketing agency. I quickly realized the work I was doing was something I could provide directly to my own clients. I quit my job without a single client of my own and started from scratch.

What should our readers know about your business?
We help businesses generate more leads and customers using the inbound marketing tool, HubSpot. We’re a different type of marketing agency because we exclusively work on the HubSpot platform. It’s allowed us to master the software and help businesses maximize their investment and make it work for their unique business, products, services, processes, and teams.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
After living downtown Toronto for several years, I now live way out in the country on a farm. So rather than taking friends and family to local attractions where you have to wait in line and pay admission, I love to show them some of the beauty of the countryside! Animals, horse and buggies, and tractor rides — oh my! They love this type of getaway and it really shows off my personality.
