My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I have always loved to build close connections and the Business Chicks community is one that understands collaboration and supporting each other. I have made some truly beautiful friends from Business Chicks.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

I am so excited to be back in business after selling Bockers & Pony. The joy of a fresh start is just fantastic.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I always try to remain positive. By keeping the negative interactions and thoughts at bay it allows constructive time to solve problems and fix things when they go wrong.

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Trust your instincts. Oh ... and don't burn any bridges. You just don't know when you will have to cross back over the bridge.

Which women inspire you and why?

The Humble, The Kind, The passionate, The Quiet Achievers. There are many ways to get results. I am always inspired when I see success from hard work and dedication.

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

The biggest challenges are when you have to re-invent yourself. Those, "what am I go to do now?" moments. I have had a few of these life events in my life. The learning experiences and hindsight are the best part.

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

Building a team and working with people in a kind and respectful way. People spend alot of time at work everyday. I try to make this inspiring and try to grow with the people that work with me. I am alsways thinking about the joy of learning and stretching others to have a growth mindset.

What makes you happy?

Coffee, super-healthy food, chocolate everyday and being around friends and family.

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

Current status: a mission to help sleepbus to provide safe sleeps for the homeless in Australia. Success for me is when 6000 Australians that are currently homeless, have a safe place to sleep at night.
