A minute with Sally Obermeder

by | 10 Jan 2020

We spent a minute with Sally Obermeder, Co-founder of SWIISH, journalist and mumma.

Sally, what’s your super power?

My gut instinct, very intuitive.”

What’s the motto you live by or the best piece of advice you ever received?

One of the best quotes I’ve ever heard and I think of it pretty much every single day is ‘your best quality is also your worst quality’. And when you think of it, it is actually so simple yet so profound. I’m disappointed I didn’t think of it myself! My boss and one of my best friends, Sarah Stinson, said it to me years ago and I’ve never forgotten it. Whenever I apply it to myself or anyone else, it is so good and so clever. If I think of myself, my best quality is that I work hard. But what that can mean is that by being focused (good quality) I can become blinkered, and I can ignore the people around me (bad quality). It lets you know what your faults are and how you can change.”

What do you wish you knew how to do?

“Coding for computers, technology is not always my friend hahahaha.”

What was your dream job when you left school?

“ I wanted to be a Dentist.”

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Spaghetti with sour cream and chilli.”
