A few months ago our Sydney community were lucky enough to have Mandi Gunsberger, Founder and CEO of Babyology, join us for Brunch.
Mandi’s story began like so many in the room – an idea, a laptop and her lounge
Oh, and don’t forget the baby.
10 years on, Babyology is a 7 figure business with a head office in Surry Hills and a national reach of over 1.3 million unique visitors per month.
Read on to learn the biggest lessons that Mandi shared on the day and the greatest gift that everyone walked away with.
We've been following the ladies from The Digital Picnic since the very beginning - and not just because they're two of the most savvy digital marketers around.
We love EVERYTHING these two mums stand for. They have integrity, they've made it their mission to help every business owner they can get their hands on, but most importantly, they've never been afraid to admit that running a business with kids isn't all sunshine and tea parties.
Read on as we chat with co-founder Cherie Clonan on the good times and the crazy times of running a business as a mum of two young kids.
When the team at Dragon Speech Recognition Software reached out to me to invite me to use Dragon as a productivity tool, my interest was definitely piqued.
The promise was great – improved productivity and effectiveness in my business – in less time. They’d set the bar pretty high.
Curious, I decided to give it a crack for a week to see how this baby would stand up to the toughest critic of them all – a mother.
This month's feature interview focuses on Kate McGill, founder of Wonder Woman Method. One of the first things you notice about Kate is her sparkle when she walks into a room.
Having gotten to know her better over the last few months, I’ve since learned that that ‘sparkle’ is something she developed later on in life. Now Kate spends her time helping other women find their ‘sparkle’.
This month’s feature mum, Brooke Hill, is a walking talking example of how having children is an opportunity to reconnect with our own creativity and pursue something more in line with our purpose.
After her senior marketing management role was made redundant while on maternity leave, Brooke was inspired to create a new career fuelled by a forgotten childhood passion.
If you are anything like me, the decision to jump into your own business came after a huge re-evaluation of life after kids.
For some of us, there was a sudden awareness that if we were to be away from our children, it had to be for something that was absolutely worth it. For others, the birth of our babes also symbolised a rebirth of us as individuals. An opportunity to create our own path with a deeper sense of passion and purpose.
When I first met Sara in February this year, the very first thing I noticed about her was her beautiful energy and that gorgeous smile. Every time I’ve seen her since, that energy and smile have still been there and I’m always blown away by how positive she stays no matter how much she’s got on her plate.
The biggest tech story of the last couple of weeks is undoubtedly the launch of Instagram Stories – a Snapchat (ahem) inspired function that allows you to upload photos and 10 second videos that then disappear after 24 hours. If you’ve been a bit late to the party and are still stuck wondering how this form of audience interaction can benefit your business and what we can all learn from Instagram’s brazen replication, then read on…
For so many of us, the only thing standing between where we are and where we want to be is a little bit of learning. Yes, that learning can be uncomfortable, but as we come to master that new skill, our comfort zone grows.
