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.

UPDATE: The segment is now live, watch it here:

We check in with Family Garden Life to see how the business has grown

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.

Here’s Why ‘Find Your Passion’ Isn’t the Best Advice When You’re Wondering ‘What To Do With My Life?’

By | Articles, Blogs

What to do with my life? This is something many women find themselves wondering at one point or another, especially after having children. Kids tend to lift the veil and we find ourselves asking what is important in my life? What matters most to me? Am I living with purpose? Am I even happy? Am I being a role model for my children? Is this it or is there more?

Asking and answering these questions can lead us down the garden path of new changes, direction and discovery.

Here is the thing though…

Success Tips: The Top 13 Things Successful People Have Given Up

By | Articles, Blogs

There are literally a billion books out there that share success tips. If you read all of them, you would never actually have time to start your business and become a success.

My list of success tips for entrepreneurs is much quicker and simpler.

Easy to read and even easier to implement, my success tips are all about what not to do.

Here are the top 13 things that your successful friends have given up, and that it may be really helpful for you to think about giving up to.

Fortunately, this list does not include coffee, wine or chocolate. You can absolutely keep those – I promise!

This list is more about a shift in your mindset than me proposing you do anything really difficult.

All of this is possible; you just need to believe. Read More

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.

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.

Business Ideas: From Concept to Completion

By | Articles, Blogs

I think that every one of us has a business idea at home at least once in their life. Some people will have quite a few.

Only some will succeed at it, however.

The difference between these people is that some will take the leap and put their idea into action, while others will think, ‘Oh, wouldn’t that be nice?’, and then instead just get on the 90-minute bus ride into the city yet again.

Sometimes we don’t really figure out our passion or purpose until we become mums. Some incredible idea opens up inside us like a lotus flower and we realise this would make us more balanced and fulfilled than any job or career path before it.

Sometimes we have already found our career purpose, and love it with all our hearts. Then we become mums and realise a little something else needs a whole lot of our heart as well. So, these mums come up with a great business idea at home to create peace and harmony between their careers and their mum-ness. Read More
