Ep #8: Joanna Arhontis - basiConcepts
After a thriving career as a travel consultant, Joanna switched gears and refocused her energy on maintaining her independence, finding her passion and owning her own business. That’s when she discovered her talent for growing businesses excelling in retail and customer service providers. Joanna accepted a position with a leading retailer in a franchise group of more than 100 stores. In her first 8 months she was promoted to store manager and grew her location to the #2 spot in the group. Leveraging her experience and confidence Joanna moved on to create her destiny as an entrepreneur. As a highly motivated and driven entrepreneur Joanna raised capital and opened her own retail store basiConcepts which became an industry leader in its field. Joanna has spent more than a decade operating basiConcepts, a boutique kitchen and homewares store in North Park Shopping Centre and North Adelaide. She’s proud of the fact that the business was profitable from the moment she opened her doors. Even though the Northpark shopping centre where she was located never had full occupancy she still found creative ways to attract customers.
