Let me start off by sharing a little about me, so you know who you're hanging with, then I'd be honoured to hear a little more about you.
For years I've had the pleasure (and sometimes hardship) of working across arguably the toughest industries around.
I began my career as a Civil Engineer building bridges and roads on a construction site. I painted my steel-cap boots pink and my colleagues called me "Pinky". So if you're currently in a career that doesn't light you up...believe me, I feel ya!
As much fun as it was playing in the dirt with the boys, I always knew Engineering wasn't my thing and that fashion was my passion, so I went from constructing roads, to constructing dresses and started my own fashion label. From humble beginnings as a one woman show on a sewing machine, spreading word through local press, I built (ha, get it) things up until we were exporting to five countries and dressing some of the biggest celebs of the time, like Paris Hilton.
After this success I was asked to be a designer on Project Runway which was an unforgettable experience, but following that I knew I needed a break from designing, so I trusted my intuition which led me to the (not-so) glamorous world of Fashion Styling.
In just four short years I held some of the most auspicious styling contracts in the Country including being the Fashion Editor for Womens Health and Fitness magazine and the resident stylist at our biggest Radio and TV Network.
Whilst it was beautiful to watch my glowing celeb clients grace the red carpets of international events like the Cannes Film Festival, I knew there was more to my life.
So as scary as it was, I started the next chapter in my entrepreneurial journey and launched my e-learning portal. My very first course teaches people how to run a profitable styling business and to this day, I am the only stylist in the World who has achieved this level of real-world success who is now giving back and helping the next generation of stylists.
I love growing, embracing change, and saying "what's next?"
After running three successful businesses, I took the time to look inward and when I thought about what was next this time, I realised -- it wasn't about me.
It was at that point I brought my passion for teaching others to the forefront and thought about how I could give to others what it's taken me a decade to learn.
So that's just what I did (and still do)!
I love helping entrepreneurs and small business owners take their businesses to the next level.
From the inexperienced who are starting their first biz adventure to those trying to navigate the next step in their empire, I have the delight of helping others achieve their #BossBabe potential.
Whether you want to dive into our free video and blog content or join me in one of my paid courses, I care deeply about giving you not only the strategic tools and knowledge but also the mindset techniques you need to live the life you've always dreamed of.
I've been behind a desk working for someone else's vision. I've created my own vision of my perfect life and business. And now I thrive on helping others to do the same.
So, what's your big business and life dream?
Whatever your goal, mine is to help you get to the point where I can pinch you and say, "you're not dreaming anymore".
So yeah, I'm basically all about the feels.
Ok enough about me, since we're now pretty much besties, I'd love to hear more about you.
