Does running your business feel like you’re stuck on a hamster wheel?
Does every day leave you feeling overwhelmed by everything you need to know to run your business?
While technology has made it easier, and certainly more affordable, to start a business today, the downside is it’s so much more complex. We’re talking websites, social media, blogging, email marketing, autoresponders, online tv, video, podcasing! There’s so much we’re being told we should be doing that it’s no surprise people are struggling.
If all of that sounds familiar then you’re going to love me because I make technology and the internet, specifically how to run an online business, really easy to understand and implement.
From understanding your ‘why’ to the ‘now what?’, I’ve got you sorted.

My story of serial entrepreneurship!
In my *ahem* younger days I was a frustrated entrepreneur. That is, I really, really wanted to start my own business but didn’t have the funds, nor a feasible idea. So I worked in a series of office jobs. When I got married my husband wanted to start a locksmithing business, so I “ran the office” while he did the actual locksmithing. I continued to work a part-time job, bring up the kids and get a qualification in Small Business Management.
Since then I’ve moved from a country town to the city of Adelaide, been divorced and remarried (well kinda – it’s a long story, ask me about it one day!), embraced online technology and my future as an entrepreneur.
This year I intentionally took time out from the digital world. I closed the doors on my Website Design business and spent three months un-plugged . Those three months allowed me time to reflect on what it is that I excel at, what it is that I love to do the most, and what it is I really want to offer the world.
The realization that I’m a multi-passionate entrepreneur who doesn’t fit into a conventional box, and you know what? That’s totally ok!
From working with my website clients I could see there was a disconnect between having a website and growing your business online – even if you don’t sell products via the internet. Their online marketing endeavours were a jumble of techniques that were exhausting and non-effective.
I know trying to start or grow a business can be so time consuming that you don’t have time to attend workshops or seminars to learn all that you need to know. And you simply cannot afford to hire someone to do all of this for you. Not yet anyway.
So I’ve taken what I’ve learned and instead of working one-on-one with my clients, I’m creating videos and online workshops so that you can watch (and learn) in your own home or office in your own time, at your own pace. I’m 100% small business focused and 100% online.

I believe that the face of business is changing, and women are turning to the idea of entrepreneurship and a lifestyle change in droves. A lifestyle that allows you to work when it suits you and gives you the freedom to spend quality time with your family or just time out from…work! I believe to achieve such a lifestyle business it needs to be internet-driven but easy to manage, that is flexible and allows for growth.
My goal is to add value to your business by giving you the tools you can immediately use to achieve this.
The best way to get started is to take one of my free (and easy) quizzes. One is for newbies to business who are still in the ‘thinking about it’ stage or perhaps you’ve actively started planning. My second quiz is for those who have already taken the plunge but business is slow and you’re starting to wonder if you’ve ticked all the boxes or you’ve missed something.
Each quiz only takes a couple of minutes and is multiple choice, so you’re not going to be left scratching your head. In fact, let’s get you started right now:
