Branka is one of those people you meet who you instantly feel like ‘she knows her stuff’, whether it be around copy writing, customer experience communication strategy or graphic design or by her ‘get it done’ approach and driven work ethic. Add to that a super powered laugh (that no matter how crappy your day is will make you laugh too) and a beautifully warm presence and you have a super talented mama of two who founded and grown the amazing One Tiny Tribe. I caught up with Branka to talk all things business, favourite design from the range and to get her advice for busy mamas out there who are thinking about starting their own gig. This interview is extra special for TDP, as I have had the pleasure of working with Branka at a fintech startup and to now see her business flourish is truly amazing! Prepare yourself ladies for an abundance of advice, knowledge and inspiration from this super talented lady, who tells me she is also about to open a cafe, which has me wondering…does she sleep?!

A Virtual CFO like myself, gets small business because I’m part of one as my husband runs his own building company and I spent ten years working for a family business that grew exponentially! I operate remotely, but if businesses are local we can arrange for some onsite support.
