So I asked my boss if I could go part time.
I was met with a flat out no. I wasn’t expecting that.
But it cemented it for me. The next day I handed in my resignation.
It was time to take the leap and give this “working for myself” thing a go.
To have the freedom and flexibility to be there for my family, to really feel like as though I am making a difference and helping others through my work, and creating something of my “own”. That’s what drives me.
And I know it’s the same for so many of the amazing people I am fortunate to work with.
Today, I spend my days teaching businesses how to build their tribe of loyal, paying customers on social media, writing my award-winning blog getinmyhome.com, and speaking and presenting.
I have a Master of Communications degree from RMIT (with a thesis on social media), have studied a 12 month business course, and worked with hundreds of clients over the years, from start ups, to Universities, to ASX listed companies.
After growing up in Oxford in the UK, and then Ballarat, Victoria, I am now based in Melbourne.
