The Politics of Everything

Jan 16, 2018

At first glance, the story of Emma Veiga-Malta may appear pretty ordinary. A mother who has launched a successful creative business from her artistic studio, while raising a family and supporting her husband’s career is not so special these days. Emma is the founder of Bespoke Backdrops, a design company changing the world of video backdrops one brushstroke at a time. However, to gloss over her story is to miss the pearls of wisdom for us all.

Emma has lived a real-life tale of riches to rags (and, as she says, hopefully, riches again) that begins in the UK. That all changed overnight when the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) hit her husband’s business to a point of no return. What happens next is the best part! Emma is here today to recount a very personal story of what The Politics of Persistence has meant to her.

In this podcast you will hear:

  1. Why entrepreneurialism, money, and creativity can be best friends.
  2. How Emma’s persistence has paid off as she went from ‘living the dream life’ in Switzerland to losing it during the GFC – to now, creating her own successful creative business from the ground up.
  3. Why she believes that ‘motherhood is the biggest excuse’, in terms of mums not pursuing their own financial independence and bigger goals.
  4. Best advice: What is your best piece of advice for anyone wanting to empower themselves in The Politics of Persistence?
