Sonia Majkic started her first business at the age of 12. Now, her $25 million business is booming


Over the past five years, Sonia Majkic has made $25 million with her Australia-wide digital marketing company, 3 Phase Marketing. She’s been named on AFR’s Fast 100 List and won numerous accolades for her work helping businesses of all sizes grow and prosper.

But Sonia didn’t have money growing up. Immigrating from Serbia to Australia in the ’80s, Sonia’s family struggled with language, community and finding work without formal qualifications in Melbourne. At the age of 12, Sonia took it upon herself to sell ‘crafty things’ to her neighbours – an idea that sparked a rags-to-riches tale you’ll love listening to on First Act.

Join us each Tuesday for a brand new episode of First Act, because every story has a beginning.
