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.
Recently, I was lucky enough to meet Monique Treder, founder of Happetite Food. I am so in love with her business and the idea of being able to send a warm meal as a gift to someone who needs it - whether it's because they are going through a hardship, they've just added to their family or because I just know that they are as over trying to come up with new things to serve up for dinner every night as I am.
For those who may not know, Moeloco is a socially conscious footwear business that donates a pair of closed shoes to a child in poverty for every pair of flip flops purchased – thereby enabling them to go to school.
Many of us still subscribe to the mentality that if we’re not putting in a socially acceptable number of hours into our business, then we are somehow falling behind. But what happens when the time we put into our business is suddenly cut short?
