Logan Merrick On Entrepreneurship And Making Ideas Happen

This is a snippet taken from an interview I did with Ideas Hoist… Click here to read the full story, I’m very humble when I talk about myself in the third person.

Logan is an incredibly passionate and driven innovator who does things ‘hard and fast’. (Yeh I do!)

He believes completely in the power of technology in pushing forward human evolution and solving the world’s biggest issues.

That’s why Buzinga’s overall mission is to create a thriving ecosystem of tech innovation within Australia, propelling Australia onto the global stage for building influential mobile applications.

At the same time, this vision cannot be achieved without attracting talented people with the same goal.

Buzinga strives to be Australia’s best workplace by 2017, empowering and inspiring its employees with a workplace they love to come to every day.

Tell us a little bit about your idea and what made you decide to take the plunge and make it happen?

I started Buzinga with my co-founder, Graham because I saw an opportunity in the market and wanted to capitalise on it.

I’m also a very passionate person and I couldn’t express that working for another business.

In my previous jobs, I always saw ways to do things better than my bosses, and this frustrated me because they weren’t driven to constantly do things better.

It’s also hard to work in a business with a bad workplace culture, and that made me want to build my own business where culture would be an integral part of its mission.

What are you working on right now and what are you most excited about in the next year?

We’re working hard to grow as much and as quickly as possible. In the next year, we’re going to double in size, bring on new people and exciting new clients, as well as expand our office space.

How do you make ideas happen?

Just do them!

What role do you think business can play in affecting social change?

All of it! We can’t rely on the government to affect social change, they’re just too slow.

Technology is the driving force that will solve the world’s biggest problems, and innovative enterprises as well as driven startups will be the ones that actually use technology to make a lasting difference on this planet.

What role have mentors played in your business life?

I’ve had quite a few mentors over the years who have offered me guidance, confidence boosts and valuable sales advice.

The most valuable thing that all these mentors have told me is to make time for learning. I spend an hour a day reading or learning in some way, so I’m constantly upskilling.
