Meet Clara Decker of CouponsMonk

Today we’d like to introduce you to Clara Decker.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Clara. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
The journey for being successful in entrepreneurship offered many twists and roadblocks. I believe everything was desperately necessary throughout the path. I started my career during the college days as a data entry operator in a small marketing firm to pay my college fee. I was an average performer there. As an introvert, I was worried about my career in the marketing industry where the communication skills and creativity should be extraordinary.

I started listening to motivational speeches, attending marketing meetups, reading blogs and interacting with seniors. These activities boosted up my confidence, knowledge and convincing skills. After that, I have been finally appointed as a marketing leader in a multinational company.

Has it been a smooth road?
As I answered in the previous question, my journey was never a bed of roses. However, I thoroughly enjoyed all my challenges. Apart from the already mentioned professional obstacles, there were some more. One of the most intense ones was what happened after I joined the MNC. Unfortunately, I was being surrounded by a few such negative minded colleagues who were jealous of the fast pace in which I was growing in my profession.

They created quite a distressing level of misunderstanding between me and the higher authorities. I became quite frustrated but then I realized that such hurdles will be always there as I will grow more in my career. People like them are no less around the world. So, I started ignoring the negativity and began with figuring out how I could solve the problems smartly.

Also, there were some difficulties in my personal life which were hampering my professional life abruptly. The sudden death of my husband in a car accident was one of the significant ones. After I lost him, it was not easy for me to come over everything and it impacted my career badly for the time being. Fortunately, I was able to cope up with all these with due course of time. Thus, you can see me now standing stronger than ever before!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with CouponsMonk – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I am totally into the coupon business. The name of the company is CouponsMonk. We fetch lucrative coupons from a variety of brands on our website to let people grab the right one for them while making an online shopping. They can finally save huge!

I am working as a Head of Growth Strategist in CouponsMonk. While being in the coupon industry for such a long time, you can easily understand what I do. Well, my specialization is in finding and arranging best offers and latest discounts from all types of brands. Interestingly, I don’t feel like that I should be limited up to premium brands only. Instead, I choose not to miss even any of the small stores in the USA.

I am basically known for the curated coupon website- CouponsMonk. One of the most amazing features that my company possesses is that it is capable of presenting such a highly organized website which not only showcase the valid deals but also makes sure that customers can easily access their desired discounts. All in all, I am quite proud of the fact that my company CouponsMonk has been able to make many shoppers happy over such a short span of time.

Yes! One of the most unique attributes of my company which sets it apart from others is nothing but the fact that we proudly share our profit with non-profit organizations. We definitely believe in the famous saying, ‘sharing is caring’. Hence, we want to always do something for those who are in need. I am sure this enthusiasm is going to be alive in us for many more years to come.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Yes! I definitely feel that LA is great for my business. Well, we Americans love to shop a lot. Don’t we? So, I can already predict that our business is definitely going to flourish a lot here. We serve exciting coupons and everyone loves to save while making a purchase. Isn’t it? So, I guess that there is no chance of suffering through any loss in Los Angeles.

Why not? I would definitely recommend anyone who is willing to start up with a new business. First of all, LA has a huge market and it was observed that there has been a sharp rise in the population here. So, with the rise in population, there is obviously an increase in demands. So, businesses are more likely to grow tremendously here. Also, there is a large workforce present in LA which again makes it a wonderful business hub.

I don’t feel that there is no huge need for improvement in LA for setting up a successful business. However, what could be upgraded a bit is nothing but the use of English among common people. Being a home of immigrants and refugees, I can see people speaking in different languages which is certainly not something bad.

Still, the fact that many of them are not at all aware of the English language seems to be pretty disturbing. In that sense, it becomes a bit tough for English speaking businesses like us to survive here. So, I would suggest that LA should do something to make English more common among people living in the city, especially in the LA metro area. It will be a great help to us and many others like us to communicate with the clients
