We can’t believe it’s almost April – it feels like only yesterday that we were welcoming 2016 in. It might have something to do with all of the exciting things happening here at Nuffnang, including new additions to our UK team. The newest recruit is Sadie, joining us as Talent and Community Manager. Sadie is already settling in well but we wanted to get to know her even better, and what better way than via the Nuffnang tradition of our Q&A:
Why did you join Nuffnang?
Well, it was a close call as I was just about to sign another deal but they won me over with their business ethic, future vision, incredible team and talents.
There were multiple reasons, but I have been a freelance writer and creative for a good few years now I although I have worked with some amazing publications and brands, more recently the work that I was being paid to do just wasn’t creative or in line with my passions. This lead me to the decision to do what I truly love creatively in my own time, and go to work for a creative company where I can use all of my skills to nurture and promote other talents. Nuffnang is a perfect fit.
Having been the talent myself and also worked on the brand and business side I cannot wait to apply my experience to the Nuffnang network and see the talent flourish in the direction each individual wants to go. Doing what you love when you’re a creative has to be priority, but you have to be a business too and I am hoping I will be the link between happy brands and happy bloggers.
What’s a weekday in your life like?
Right now I am learning about the Nuffnang network and soaking in all of wonderful blogs we have under our umbrella; the range of diverse talent is amazingly moreish and I can spend hours just reading. But I’m a real people person so I can’t wait to be out and about connecting exciting clients with unique talents and seeing everything coming together.
If you could change your first name?
I like my name – it does what it says on the tin.
If you had a super power?!
It would be to have power to invisibly dissolve all and any weapons across the world and recycle the materials into homes for people in need of safe shelter. I’d also dissolve Donald Trump all together – because who would miss that.
Are you seeing someone?
No. I’ve settled down with myself and I’m thinking of making it ‘official’. It’s pure bliss.
Last Film you watched?
High-Rise. I love JG Ballard’s novel; director Ben Wheatley has an incredible mind, and I’ve been an admirer of Tom Hiddleston forever. Now ‘everyone’ has discovered him, I feel I bit miffed TBH.
Do you see yourself living anywhere else?
I don’t think I will ever love anywhere like I love London, but I also have a love affair with New York City and see it as my second home. I also love the whole of Scandinavia; I adore the natural beauty of the landscape and particularly the steely style of the Swedes.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I don’t believe you should ever feel guilt over something you find pleasurable – unless it’s damn right odd. Then best just to keep it to yourself and enjoy anyway.
