In today’s episode, I chat with the founder of Australia’s new favourite toothpaste brand, RoccNaturals. Whist on materiality leave and surviving a global pandemic with her newborn baby Prue saw a need for a natural and sustainable toothpaste product that would be good for humans and the planet. In the short space of two years, Prue took the idea and not only made it a reality but has managed to scale to the business, off the back of her own funding to an Australian-wide major stockist. Rocc Naturals will officially be stocked in over 830+ Coles retail outlets around the country with an...

In today’s episode, I catch up with a fellow creative, author, and good friend of mine Amie McNee @inspiredtowrite for a raw and honest conversation about the comparison. We discuss where and how it shows up in our own lives and businesses and share some tips for overcoming it when it rears its ugly head. Comparison can lead to self-doubt, inaction, and shying away from going after our dreams and goals and can often cause people to quit before they’ve even started. When we are able to catch it in the moment, silence the inner critic and find healthy ways to combat it before it takes charge...

In today’s episode, I address one of the most common struggles I see in my business coaching clients and that I have personally had to overcome on a regular basis in my own business - how do you ride the highs and lows of running your own business? Starting and running a business is hard work, full of uncertainty, and can change at any moment. Somedays we’re on top of the world and things seem to be going exactly as we planned and others are filled with fear, setbacks, and overwhelm. Nature is a perfect reminder that all of life fluctuates between different seasons of abundance and loss....

How to Improve the Quality of Your Performance in Your Business show art How to Improve the Quality of Your Performance in Your Business

StartUp Creative - Your go-to source for straight-up business advice

When life and business present us struggles, challenges, or setbacks there are two ways in which you can approach it, either with confidence and a level of self-belief that you have what it takes to solve the problem, endure the hardship and master the skills required to move through it or to feel a sense of failure, shame, and rejection. Research shows that those who have high self-efficacy ( an individuals belief in their capacity to execute the behaviours necessary to produce a specific performance outcome) are more likely to face challenges as something to be mastered, bounce back from...

In today’s episode, I chat with Anita, the founder of Wordfetti for her tips and tricks on how to best tackle the ever-changing environment of social media. Instagram was once a place to connect, share and market your business direct to your audience world. As the platform continues to prioritise different styles of content, pivot the way in which they determine who sees your content and when and make unpredictable upgrades and even consequences, it’s important to be able to manage your mindset about how to approach using the platform for your business as well as find ways to make it work...

On Self-Belief and Creative with Delta Venus show art On Self-Belief and Creative with Delta Venus

StartUp Creative - Your go-to source for straight-up business advice

I’ve been following Paige aka Delta Venus for a few years now and have been in absolute awe of how beautifully and consciously her artwork and witten pieces have developed into a complete embodiment of self. Starting out in the design industry, Paige decided to follow her ‘strange pull’ that was leading her in a direction that she was taught was most likely not going to get her any success. Shifting from a regular and scheduled routine to being led intuitively, Paige believes that you can create from a place of ease and joy and get the results you want if you can let go of your egoic...

If you’re looking for a story of resilience and holding firm to your dream, this is it. It’s an honest account of what it takes to make a dream a reality no matter what the obstacles may be.

Sheree is a friend and colleague in the female business space and the founder of One Roof, an online community platform for women with 450 members across Australia today.

Sheree shares her story from such an authentic and truly honest perspective and really puts it all out on the table for us. She’s a self-proclaimed “dive in without thinking and deal with the consequences later” type person, and she’s doing such an epic job of it.

We chat about her beginnings in the cooperative world and feeling like a total fish out of water, not knowing what her true career identity was and finding her passion in wanting to close the gender gap for women in the working world.

Once she took a deep dive into the wonderful work of startups, Sheree found herself starting co-working spaces from an Airbnb and a building about to be demolished to then raising $1 million to start her own co-working space in Melbourne. Sheree’s business was growing quickly, and I really respect her for
putting one foot in front of the other and really following the energy of her business.

At the end of this podcast, we get a few tips from Sheree on how to find the right investors for your business, pivoting when you no longer align with what you had previously set out, and managing your mental and physical wellbeing through the ups and downs of your business.
