We used to work at Quiz and now run a £500,000 empire – trolls say we’re “two little girls in business”.
TWO best friends who used to work at Quiz are now running their own business empire.
Amy Moore and Kirsten Cameron are founders of Aquarius Creative in Glasgow, specializing in influencer management.
The couple started from scratch starting their business after quitting their jobs at fashion brand Quiz, and revealed they didn’t even pay themselves for a while.
But her hard work and determination paid off when her business turned over £500,000 last year.
And the buddies had to develop thick skins as they built their empires, as many people see them as “two little girls running business”.
Speaking on BBC series The Agency: Unfiltered, Amy revealed: “We literally started from scratch, we didn’t have an office. Me, Kirsten, her living room and two laptops, that was us.
“The pressure at the start was really very stressful, no money came in and we haven’t paid ourselves for so long.”
Kirsten added, “But this year our sales were half a million.
“I think people definitely see us as two little girls just playing in the business, but we’ve got pretty tough skin now.”
The girls met when they both worked at Quiz in the marketing department.
And decided to start her own company managing Scotland’s top influencers.
Amy added: “Kirsten and I have known each other for seven years.
“We worked in the marketing department for a fashion brand in Scotland.
“Kirsten handled the celebrity side of things while I handled the social media and influencer side of things.
“We didn’t have anyone above us telling us what to do, so at that point we knew we could do it for ourselves for a huge company.”
Cameras followed business bosses Amy and Kirsten as they went about their marketing agency’s day-to-day operations.
The marketing gurus have 20 of Scotland’s biggest influencers on their books – including Abbie Blyth and Molly McFarlane.
The six-episode series follows the trials, glitz and glamor of influencers’ lives – as well as their bosses.
Amy said: “I think for everyone watching at home, there’s so much personal stuff that’s happening in the first series.
“If a second season happened, everything would flow very well.”
