Meet Nicole Conway
Interview From CanvasRebel
Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Nicole Conway. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Nicole, thanks for taking the time to share your stories with us today Coming up with the idea is so exciting, but then comes the hard part – executing. Too often the media ignores the execution part and goes from idea to success, skipping over the nitty, gritty details of executing in the early days. We think that’s a disservice both to the entrepreneurs who built something amazing as well as the public who isn’t getting a realistic picture of what it takes to succeed. So, we’d really appreciate if you could open up about your execution story – how did you go from idea to execution?
I founded Conway Marketing Group after working in healthcare marketing on the client side, mostly focusing on B2B, for my entire career. Even when I first started in marketing, I always knew that I wanted to start my own agency, but I knew that I had to have the experience and network first to be able to do so successfully. I had fantastic mentors throughout my career who knew that this was my ultimate goal, but it took some hard work, learning, time and life changes for me to finally take the leap.
In January 2020, after nearly 20 years in healthcare marketing, I launched my business as a corporation of one (me). My first client was my previous employer, AMN Healthcare. From there, I built my business organically, client by client and employee by employee. I also set out from the beginning to build an all-remote marketing agency, with workers who are trusted and empowered to do their best work. The silver lining of the COVID-19 pandemic for us was the fact that I didn’t have to legitimize my remote work concept to clients—it was just accepted as natural from the get-go.
