Five minutes with ... Rebecca DerringtonBy Business Chicks | Mar 23, 15 10:27 AM
We chat to Rebecca Derrington, the enterprising founder of SourceBottle.
Rebecca Derrington founded the groundbreaking connection platform SourceBottle five years ago. Enabling journalists, bloggers and public relations workers to find each other and discover new and knowledgeable sources, SourceBottle now serves users all across Australia, New Zealand, North America and the United Kingdom. Here’s a little snapshot of Bec’s life …
My favourite inspirational book is … The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder.
My go-to business tool is … Twitter, Twitter and more Twitter. It’s my go-to for sharing
call-outs and for the latest in news, industry insights, thought leaders’ musings and, if I’m completely honest, a bit of a laugh.
The biggest career lesson I have learnt is … Not to let your inevitable mistakes and failures in business derail you.
I love my job because … I get to choose how my working day looks and who I spend it with. (Often that’s my kids.)
My favourite quote is … “Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude.” Eric Allen.
I stay inspired by … The sheer terror of failure.
If someone were to play me in a movie about my life, I’d like it to be … Annabel Crabb, because I want to be her when I grow up.
I love Business Chicks because … It gives us access to amazing thought leaders and inspirational business minds, generally over a delicious meal.
