Almost Six Years of Passion – Saija Mahon – UK


Almost six years of passion – Saija Mahon – UK

As during the ‘honeymoon’ period of any relationship, I’ve noticed I talk about my business rather the same way – with passion, with exact knowledge of how long this great relationship has been going on, and with endless energy and effort to ensure it all keeps going strong for many years to come.

Owning and running a business is pretty much a lifestyle, you need to love it, and you need to immerse yourself fully in it.

There’s no denying being a business owner is challenging, and like any relationship – it has its ups and downs. You keep on learning each day as you go along, and that’s truly the real excitement of it all. Anything could wait round the corner.

My company Mahon Digital Marketing is now on its 6th year, and since its humble beginnings, the company has grown into a flourishing international media agency with offices in London UK and Finland Scandinavia. Our 14-strong team keeps on driving the business forward, and I feel like my initial ‘relationship’ has developed into a fully-fledged family.

Starting out as a one-woman-operation back in 2010 was due to a fairly simple dream of mine; I wanted to practise digital marketing for my own clients, and I wanted to rule my own day around my young family’s needs and as I saw convenient.

I never really thought of the concept of being ‘an entrepreneur’, or launching a ‘start-up’.

All I wanted to do was follow my passion and the rest seemed to follow as a natural cause.


Scaling up the company has been a (positive) challenge, and I’ve truly learned the ropes of being a leader of a growing business.

During growth, I’ve hired more people to drive the business forward, I’ve increased the company’s service portfolio – and I’ve also been able to launch other companies to support the ecosystem around the business.

It’s been almost six years of passion, and I hope many more to come. I feel that this is only the beginning and the building blocks are all falling into their correct places. I am very excited about the future and I hope to see many more ladies starting up their businesses too! Go for your passion, and do it today.
