Listen to hear how Judy completely blagged her way into winning her first client (you will LOVE what she did!), how her agency nearly died when they took their eye off customer service and focused soley on growth, what she learned from that and how it has made a huge difference to her business going forward. If you want to feel energised and inspired, this interview will do it for you!
My latest She’s The Boss Chats episode is with Sarah Prime, Rural Woman of the Year and Founder of The Champions Academy. Sarah is determined to bring life back to rural towns, and she’s doing it! She started the Champions Academy a few years ago and teaches people in rural towns how to rejuvenate the community with sports and volunteering. This all came about in an extraordinary way, because Sarah was climbing the corporate ladder nd had passed through the glass ceiling before it all became too much. To recover from her stressful life she decided to move back from Cairns to the tiny South Australian town she had grown up in. Just for a month.
She is now married with children, has been voted Rural Women of the Year, is Telstra Womens Business Award Winner, Westpac Social Change Fellow and she’s shaking up rural Australia and showing us a new way to build our next generation of rural leaders.
My latest She’s The Boss Chats episode is with the incredible, inspiring Jacqui Bloom, Founder of The Helpers Hub. Jacqui started off her life working in the family fabric business and thought her future had been mapped out for her (to an extent). As one of three daughters, when her sisters chose other careers, it was left to her to take over where her parents left off, and so she joined the family business, and took it over eventually, running it for 10 years before she decided it was time to try something different.
Reeling from the terminal diagnosis for her beloved Mum, a lot of things in Jacqui’s world imploded at the same time, including her marriage, and she was heavily reliant on the help offered by friends and family. That gave her an idea for a business when everything settled down again. The Helping Hub is for people who want to help their friends with something other than flowers! People can purchase ‘useful’, helpful gifts like cleaning services, or babysitting instead. It’s going to be really exciting to watch Jacqui’s business ‘bloom’ (couldn’t help it!) over the next few months.
My latest She’s The Boss Chats episode is with Miriam Sankuhler, a Real Estate Buyers Advocate and Franchisor. Miriam’s story is really fascinating.
Miriam had a fierce desire to find stability after a difficult childhood and ended up buying her first home at 24. Since then she has become heavily involved in the property industry and now wants to help home buyers everywhere avoid paying too much or making mistakes with their purchases. Miriam’s story of physical breakdown thst lead her to adjust her life is a common tale. Her mission now is to help buyers and expand her business into a national franchise.
Keep an eye out at the end for her quirky fact. She was one of the ‘singles’ on Perfect Match back in the day!! She talks about her chaperoned ‘romantic getaway’ in Launceston and how she recently touched base with her ‘date’ after 20 years!
