Where Are They Now? Lowenna from Family Health Hub

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups | No Comments

Hi! I’m Lowenna, owner of Family Health Hub. I am Mum to two boys aged 9 and 13. We live in Sydney and love getting out in nature. I’m a scientist by background and I love helping other Mums understand about the biology of health. Like all of us busy Mums I try every day to get the right balance between work, family and me-time!

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

I was, and still am, working 3 days per week, and I love my job. I was not looking to replace my job with my business. But I had a dream to have my own website, and to help busy Mums get health information easily. For me Family Health Hub was going to be a side project of passion.

Anyone Can Create and Profit From an e-Book, Including You.

By | Blogs

What is an e-book?

Honestly? It is just a PDF. Simple as that. E-books are a low priced ticket item that can be sold alone as the main product of a business, or as a cross or down sell.

Income Potential: 

e-Books can be free or paid for, and generally will sell from $9.95 and upwards depending on the nature of your content, niche and value. As they are a low ticket item, you need to sell in high numbers in order to gain a reasonable income from them (they can be a fantastic side income as well though) e-books will generally convert at 3-5% which means for every 1000 visitors to your e-book sales page you get, you should make 30-50 sales. Once you’ve achieved this, the key here is to raise that conversion percentage and scale your traffic. Read More

Where Are They Now? Andrea from The Cooking Collective

By | Blogs, Previous Client Follow Ups

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.

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.
