Hi, I’m Tina Benias (Beh-
I am a writer and digital marketing strategist.
Playing around with words is my jive and I get major kicks connecting people to brands with stories, digital marketing and unicorn-like content creation.
I spent 9 years working for two of Australia’s biggest insurers and banks, turning boring and dry financial information into compelling, convincing AND converting copy and design.
In 2016 I decided I wanted more than just a fancy desk and decided to move to Italy and start my own location independent digital marketing agency.
Maybe you’re asking why…
I loved my corporate jobs but there were a few things that didn’t quite fit me or my personality.
My creativity, freedom and time were on a leash.
After years of slugging it in the 6am-6pm work day, I realised that in order for me to be good at my job I need a few essential elements:
- The time to roll around in my ideas, make mistakes and throw paint at walls to find what sticks (figurative paint of course)
- The freedom to explore new places, to work from different locations and to work the hours when inspiration strikes me.
So, I created my own location independent career working with startups and small businesses to help their dreams come true, just like mine did. I also teach people how they can turn their career into a location independent lifestyle.
Simon Sinek nailed it on the head when he said “People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it”
I do my job because I love the freedom it gives me and because I love the people I get to meet and the creativity I’m allowed to use.
I get to help people make their dreams come true and that is why I do what I do.
