How Twins Helped Me Swap Inner Shadows For Inner Peace

By | Blogs

I never realised I had an anxiety problem, but I have lived with it for years as I thought it was normal. I suspect it was triggered when I was 19 and had a terrifying melanoma scare. 16 years ago I opened the door at 9pm to my Mum standing there. It would not have been odd except for the fact she lived 600km’s away and didn’t tell me she was coming. Instantly I saw in her eyes something was not right. ‘The results came back today, it is a melanoma,’ my mum said trying to hold her voice steady.

I had just arrived back into Sydney after traveling around the world. There really was no time for this crap, in two weeks I was starting my Visual Communications course at Billy Blue in North Sydney, I had a life I needed to live. But, the fear filtered in and dispersed through my veins. I was scared, my Mum was scared. We were all scared.

My Best Quick Tips on How to Start an Online Business For Free (& Set Yourself up for Success in the Process)

By | Blogs

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.

If this jump starter business package isn’t for you, then you can totally start and create your online business for free, everything that you need can be worked out and DIY’ed. That’s the beauty of the internet these days, is if you know what you are looking for you can work out how to get yourself sorted.

Ok sure, DIYing may be the harder way, it may take more time to workout and you may make a few mistakes along the way or end up with something that looks shit, but at the same time, you also might not. If you really have no funds to pay an expert to help you, then what have you got to lose? 

With some time, perseverance and motivation you can totally work it out and you can start an online business and learn along the way, it is better then not trying at all right?

I’ll even give you my best tips to get started: Read More

The Largely Unknown Hack I used to Grow and Sustain a Million Dollar Business while being a WAHM.

By | Blogs

I’m reflecting on how I created my business, how I got to where I am and how I can continue going where I want to despite having one of the biggest challenges of my life ahead of me. Being a new mum of four when I never expected to ever, like ever, get a ‘buy one get one free deal’ with getting pregnant.

Fortunately, the way I have set up my business hugely contributes to this being a reasonably seamless transaction. I step out of my business with no-one the wiser loads of times and it continues to function, make revenue and deliver our WIP as promised. I’m not saying it’s like that all the time, but if we are comparing it to a regular business and how the majority of people run theirs, I would say I’ve absorbed myself out by at least 60-70%.

So while twins are certainly going to come in and throw a lot of curve balls at me, what I need to do most is continue on with the hacks and expertise I used to build my business to a million dollars within 18 months in the first place. Whilst I’ll have days/weeks/months of being knee deep in nappies and spew, my business can continue to grow and sustain itself, and I can continue to grow and sustain myself as well.

Behind the Scenes Filming For Kochie’s Business Builders

By | Blogs

Just last month (May 2018) I was so honoured to be invited by Kochie’s Business Builder’s to share my story on Channel 7 about the growth of Business Jump and what was even better was they asked me to bring along one of my clients so they could feature them as well.

I knew instantly that I would ask Rebecca Searles, who is a client who came to us with a dream of starting a business that we helped set up for her and get her started on the right path which is now flourishing as Family Garden Life and also a gorgeous friend of mine now, largely thanks to our love of having conversations in gifs, drinking wine and keeping it real.

How To Start a Business Online and Monetise it Smartly.

By | Blogs

It is the question I get asked almost on a daily basis. How to start a business online and how long will it take to start earning revenue?

The truth?

I seriously don’t know how long it is going to take you, it is different for everyone. But, you can check out how long it took these Business Jump clients to start a business online and monetise it with our help by clicking here.

It is sorta like one of those how long is a piece of string questions. 

How committed are you? How resilient are you? How efficiently can you work? What areas of the business are you focusing on? Are you being smart with your time? Are you working in the flow? Do you know what zone of genius you are in and working within that? Are you applying the 80/20 rule? Do you have a growth mindset, or a limited mindset?

Did I freak you out with all those questions?

How To Overcome Your Crazy & Find Peace as a Mum

By | Blogs

I remember when my psychologist suggested exercise to me.

‘She is crazy,’ I thought. The truth is, I was actually feeling all kinds of crazy.

Looking down at my daughter playing with toys on the floor and my baby sleeping in the pram, I wondered if she realised that these two midgets follow me around everywhere I go?

Like. Everywhere.

My Top 6 Hacks to Create a Business That Runs Without You So You Can Do Whatever You Want

By | Blogs

The other week (or a while ago depending on when you read this blog) I went down to the shopping mall to buy a book.

I saw on Instagram that Jack Delosa was reading Principles by Ray Dalio, and I had one of those ‘I have to have it right now even though I could buy it online and save $15’ type moments.

When I walked past Flight Centre, I was pulled in for some reason, sort of on autopilot, I walked out an hour later with a trip for my daughter and I to Vietnam and Cambodia, departing in approx 20 hours. The Flight Centre dude said he had never had anyone reply with ‘tomorrow’ when he had asked them when they wanted to leave. I was able to do this because I run my own business.
