First of all I’m launching my first official podcast!
Blog posts are great but I get that sometimes you want to get your business inspiration while you’re out and about jogging, commuting, running around after the kid etc. That’s why I’m excited to introduce to you the Selling Yourself Online Podcast.
In the Selling Yourself Online podcast series, I chat to thought leaders and business leaders and try to deconstruct how some of the most successful emerging businesses have created packaged and positioned their businesses online, and share their success tips with you.
I have to tell you that I think you are going to LOVE the guests I’ve interviewed and what they have to say.
Encase you are wondering what difference means, difference is part of the process of creating a relevant and remarkable business. It’s how you set yourself apart and connect with a group of people who are looking for exactly what you have to offer. It’s also about how you position what you do around your dream customers’ needs.
It’s the first element of the Sell Yourself Online framework that I teach when I help people turn their idea into a profitable online brand. Which is why I’m thrilled to be able to share with you this interview with Bernadette who is a true thought leader in this space.
In other news the second thing I wanted to update you on is that last Saturday I hosted an event in Sydney to celebrate International Women’s Day, called “How to Sell Your Ideas Online”.
Over 60+ women attended and the energy in the room was electric. Although in different places in their business journey, it was clear that everyone showed up bursting with passion and purpose and a yearning to go beyond the daily and create a business that fulfils them.
It was amazing day and I was blown away with what an incredible bunch of women who attended.
A huge thank you to my co-speaker, Anthea Cahill whose authentic story on how she built her Real Chai tea empire and now is on a mission to help others follow their dreams with her latest initiative I Quit My Job , was a clear highlight of the day.
I also want to acknowledge the talented MC on the day, Amelia Morison. Not only did Amelia keep the energy and inspiration flowing smoothly on the day, but she was integral in helping organise what turned out to be a sell-out first live event. Thank you, I am truly blessed to have you in my world.
Although I filmed the event, I didn’t actually take many photos. Here are two..

On a personal note, one of my goals for this year was to move away from behind my laptop and get out there and interact with the community I have the honour of serving, and to speak in front of a large audience regularly.
My word for 2014 is actually “Dance” – getting out there and dancing on the stage, so to speak. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of doing but haven’t ever had the opportunity to do. In fact public speaking is something I avoided at all costs in my corporate role
Well this year I’ve actively taken steps to make it happen, like joining my local toastmasters group where I met Amelia and holding this first live event.
So… it happened. There I was on the stage with two microphones strapped to my belt, strutting up and down the stage like a motivational speaker.
I want to leave you with this thought, if YOU can dream it, you can achieve it.
All my love,
