34: "Collaborate Your Way to a Career You Love" with Anique Coffee, Founder of The Collective Europe
Anyone who's achieved some level of success in their career will tell you - nobody succeeds without the help of others. Anique Coffee has spent her career following her curiosity and leveraging her connections to get amazing opportunity after amazing opportunity, from working for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to launching her own marketing agency, to going IPO with a Silicon Valley startup, and most recently moving to Europe and creating The Collective, a unique mix of a festival, conference, and retreat. On this episode, learn how Anique has collaborated with her community to fall in love with her career, time and time again.
Anique grew up in the US where she studied Marketing and Entrepreneurial Ventures. After a four-year stint working with Creative Services at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Anique started her own agency providing a range of services with a focus on corporate identity and branding. Once she sold the agency, Anique moved to California and joined the Silicon Valley life in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here, she helped launch and grow various tech startups.
Stemming from a love for travel and new cultures, Anique recently relocated to Europe and started The Collective Europe, a community for creatives, entrepreneurs, and startups who aim to learn new skills to grow their business or start a new one, all in a tech-free environment where inspiration is abundant and community rules over competition. This year, The Collective Europe is partnering with FreedomXFest, a festival centered around supporting the entrepreneurial and location-independent lifestyle. The festival kicks off on the 14th of August - grab your ticket while you still can!
Embracing the digital nomad lifestyle, Anique loves to connect with people and brands all over the globe. She is a strong decision maker and excels at providing direct and meaningful feedback to those she is working with directly. She's driven by relationships and results and loves connecting with others through shared ideas and celebration of unique differences.
