Meet The #HauteSquad: Lisabelle Gonsalves
Our not-so-new member is the one who holds the reins of this crazy, crazy team. From planning our work life to making sure we eat lunch on time, she is our work mommy in every way.
Tiny but fierce, Lisabelle Gonsalves has a soft corner for Excel sheets and her maid’s food (not!). Happy with cute little things and jackets around her, meet our Managing Editor, a.k.a ME.
1. You’re the Managing Editor at Hauterfly. So what exactly is it that you do?
I hustle. A LOT. We’re a small team with tons of stuff to get done — videos, articles, client campaigns, events, and more. My job is to make sure it all happens!
2. What were you doing before this?
I’ve worked in the digital space all my life, and by that I mean the last 12 years! And it’s been one heck of a ride. I started my career with the Network18 group, and later worked as Managing Editor with iDiva.com. I also had a short stint with an e-commerce brand that taught me a thing or two about business!
3. How did you get started at Hauterfly?
Well, e-commerce is a crazy industry, and it made me miss the media space. Joining Hauterfly was like coming home in a sense.
4. What’s the favourite part about your job?
I have a kick-ass team — a bunch of witty, dramatic, mostly sane millennials who are brimming with ideas, and bursting with talent! With them around, there’s never a dull moment at Hauterfly HQ.
5. And the least favourite?
We have an extremely tight video shoot schedule. Planning it week on week is my biggest nightmare.
6. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A space cadet. It’s fun having your head in the clouds (sometimes).
7. What’s the one piece of advice you’d give someone who wants a job like yours?
Don’t become set in your ways, EVER! What worked yesterday will not work tomorrow. Digital is for those who can adapt to change, and think on their feet!
8. Tell us something weird about you!
For a petite person, I eat an awful lot! But pizza is bae, so don’t judge!
