Staff profile: Angela Smith
We have some amazing people working here at Soda Inc. including the newest member of the Soda team, Angela Smith. Angela has taken on the role of Coworking Coordinator and in this Q&A style staff profile, you will get to learn why she values family above all, who she has had a crush on forever, her dream destination and much more.
Who Inspires you?
My mum, she taught us from a very young age the value of family and looking after each other, she has created a family that is closer than most, teaching us that so long as we all had each other then everything will be fine, which in turn gave us all great confidence to be who we are today. She always put my sisters and I (and now our children) ahead of anything else and through years of working two jobs to ensure we always had everything we needed she still always managed to be there for us.
She would hands down be the most loved and admired women I know - not just by her children and grandchildren, but to the many many people who have the pleasure of knowing her.
What's the best concert you ever attended?
Have been to heaps of great concerts, but Billy Idol was definitely one of the best shows ever - and also Bon Jovi as I have had a crush on him for, like, ever!!!
If you could be an animal, which would you be and why?
An adored puppy because I would be treated like part of the family and get to sleep inside!!!
What's your favourite business book/podcast?
I'm not really big on business books and podcasts, but did enjoy reading 'Rich Man Poor Man' and enjoy listening to the odd podcast on property and how to make it work for you.
What's your favourite movie?
That's a hard one! Going back many years now I loved Top Gun (and Tom Cruise), but I really love the movie PS I love you, I am a bit of a romantic really.
What are you most passionate about?
My children. They bring me the greatest pleasure, are my biggest achievement and would do absolutely anything for them.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Having another baby 15 years after the first, but you never know what life is going to throw at you and I wouldn't change it for the world.
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Shameless (the American version). Love it!
If you could visit anywhere in the world you've never been before, where would it be?
Santorini - always looks so amazing.
Which four people, living or dead would you most like to eat dinner with? What kind of dinner party would it be?
- Will Smith
- Oprah Winfrey
- Marilyn Monroe
- My Husband Dennis (because everything is more fun with him)
The dinner party would be super relaxed with good food and lots of wine Will Smith would bring the laugh's and entertainment, Oprah the gossip, Marilyn the scandal and Dennis the top shelf whiskey!!!
If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
