Where Are They Now? Andrea from The Cooking Collective

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups | No Comments

I’m Andrea, owner of The Cooking Collective; a cooking blog and subscription marketplace. I live in beautiful East Gippsland, Victoria with my husband Luke and our four kids. I am currently on maternity leave, but work part time in a government job that I have had for almost 15 years. 

I am (and always have been) a super passionate home cook. Mostly because I love eating good food, but also because I love to make other people happy with food.

Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?

I have been working in my government career, which I have loved, for almost 15 years. Once we started having kids, I stepped back to part time hours so that I could care for them. That was great, but it meant a drop in our family income. I started looking into something that I could run from home that would challenge me and also create an extra income that was more flexible around my new role of ‘mum’. My aim was to eventually match my full time wages with something that also balanced around my family.

I Faced My Biggest Fear and Had a Massive Breakthrough, This is How I Did it.

By | Blogs

I’m that friend of a friend…

You know, that story you hear and aren’t sure whether it could really be true.

It was one of those moments where your whole life is turned upside down and you are left in complete and utter WTF shock.

Yeah. Me. That was me.

Like a handbag that was picked up and turned upside down with all the mum crap we shove in there spilling out…

Lipsticks, coins, that day old half eaten sandwich that the kids didn’t want anymore, water with the lid not screwed on properly leaking everywhere.

That was like how my brain fell out of my head when I found out.

Wholehearted Family Health (resized)

Where Are They Now? Andrea from Wholehearted Family Health

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups

I’m Andrea, I’m a midwife, child health nurse, wife and mum to a busy three-year-old girl. I live in Western Australia and I decided just over a year ago to make the jump into starting my own online health and wellness business called Wholehearted Family Health.

Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?

I was a mostly stay-at-home mum, just doing a few casual shifts at the hospital before I contacted Business Jump. I had resigned from my dream job as a community midwife when my daughter was 8 months old because I didn’t feel ready to return to work part-time and put her in child care. I was dreaming of a new challenge and something that I could throw myself into as a side hustle.

Why Being Fired From My Job for Being a Mum Was the Best Thing Ever.

By | Blogs

Here is a confession that I fear mums like me might get stoned for saying out loud.

Loads of that mum stuff…

Not for me.

Taking kids to parties… not high on my list of favourite things to do.

It is fine if there is wine…

But if not, I am not great at making small chat over toilet training, starting solids and what the best type of nappy is.

Talk to me about online business, making sales, funnels, email marketing, FB ads and you’ve got my attention.

Doesn’t happen a lot though.

I usually try to outsource the parties to my husband and when I have to go, I make the kids share their party bags with me as tax.

Aussie Allergy Mum

Where Are They Now? Caroline from Aussie Allergy Mum

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups

Hi my name is Caroline Partridge, mum to Charlotte 7 and Matilda 5 & I live on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?

So before I contacted Business Jump, I had been blogging for about 9 months, on a website I had created from scratch myself. I had been sharing our allergy journey on a Facebook page, and writing about our journey. There really wasn’t much structure to it, and it had grown organically.

Home Cook Love

Where Are They Now? Alicent from Home Cook Love

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups

Hello! I’m Alicent, or Ali, as everyone calls me. After having had a taste of the wonderful things that Australia has to offer whilst studying for my degree in Canberra, I decided to move to Sydney from Singapore. I’ve been living in Sydney for 15 years now, and fell so much in love with the country that I’ve started a little family of my own right here. I’m now proud mama to two little ladies, Madelien, 2 and Lily, 5, and am blissfully married to my bestie and ‘Flying Dutchman’, Maarten.

Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?

I’ve been in marketing, working in multinational and local boutique ad agencies since I graduated from uni in 2002, so that makes it 16 years in marketing! I’ve never worked in another industry or environment unless that telemarketing gig back in high school for extra pocket money counted for anything. My husband and I co-owned a boutique marketing agency for 5 years before we sold it in April last year, and that marked the beginning of a new journey for me with Business Jump.

Where Are They Now? Meagan from The Gut Healing Community

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups

Hi I’m Meagan Rayment, mother of my beautiful 2 and a half  yr old Meika and wife to my amazing husband Scott. We live on the Sunshine Coast and love getting out into nature and eating delicious healthy food.

Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?

I had been in the dental industry for 17years in management, nursing and lab technician work. I was actually on maternity leave and wasn’t looking forward to going back to work after a big corporate company bought out the little practice.

I was so ready for a change and was looking for something that I could pour my heart and soul in to, could do from anywhere and in my own hours so I could stay home with Meika.
