"Be kind and always think of the other's perspective."

Hi there! My name is Abbie and I am an entrepreneur who enjoys making things happen. I love creatively Problem solving, thinking outside the box and tackling a task head on. Away from my work life, which seams to follow me into my home, which I�¢??m ok with! I recharge my battery by spending time with my family, devouring a book or going back to my creative design roots and getting lost in lots and lots of fabric

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I wanted to be around women who were in a similar place to me.

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

Selling a successful business and moving overseas for a year with my family.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

Setbacks are just bumps in the road, go over them or go around them, failures are just learning (sometimes painful learning!) and fear means you are close to creating something huge.

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

Everything is figuroutable

Which women inspire you and why?

My Mum because she rose from a horrible upbringing to become an incredibly driven and strong woman. My sisters because I have had the privilege of watching them overcome big hurdles and better themselves. Maria Forleo because she says Everything is Figuroutable!

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

The expectations I put on myself. Its something I put in place at a young age and after many years and finally facing the facts (and many self help books later) I was able to acknowledge and work through it. This has made me realise I am the only person who is going to stop me from reaching my full potential.

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.)

Clothing design, its not relating to my current career but Im still really good at it!

What makes you happy?

Day trips and holidays with my family where its just us, an adventure and no technology.

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

Working only because I want to, not because I have to.
