From Introvert  to Award Winning Public Speaker Mentor Coach Author For many years I avoided public speaking – I was most certainly an introvert.  I had great jobs and opportunities, however I avoided speaking and networking. 3 events changed my life and started me on my business journey. I found a mentor who pushed, prodded and pulled me into speaking and I finally realised how much I enjoyed speaking and training.  So much so that with my business partner we started the business Trischel and for many years we conducted training workshops privately and with corporate organisations. The 2nd event was seeing Steven Bradbury win his gold medal in the winter Olympics. Watching his interviews I realised the power of being prepared, being prepared to grab opportunities effectively when they came along.  This has become a mantra and a driving force for my business.  My mission is to help my clients, specifically published and soon to be published authors, and introverts to realise that public speaking is the key to success.  Public speaking skills and techniques  will give them the confidence to be ready to grab opportunities when they come. The 3rd event was in 2007 when we lost our son Craig to suicide.  I had to give the eulogy at his funeral and there were no second chances with this – it had to be done right and done then.  It was not until many weeks later when I was processing everything that I realised that the it was the confidence from my public speaking skills that allowed me to do that eulogy and do due testament to... read more

M.A.S Accountants: Tips for first time business entrepreneurs

Are you thinking of starting your own business? Starting something new is a big change – especially if it’s been ruminating for some time. It could mean a big change in your lifestyle and career path too, so a few people may find the adjustment is quite difficult. m.a.s accountants have been in the small business accounting industry for 50 years, witnessing the growth of many different businesses that originally started out as a good idea. Crunching the numbers and working with business owners‘ decisions over the years has led them to experience a lot and gather some wisdom. Here are their tips for first time business entrepreneurs: If you have a big idea, make sure you can pitch that idea and share it within 30 seconds. If you can say it within 30 seconds, your business path is clear. If you start rambling around, you may seem like you are still quite unsure. Start small and do not be overly ambitious at the start – no one is expecting you to own a huge office and large employee base. You’ll likely work out your living room for a while, and that’s fine! You don’t want to find yourself struggling to pay your bills or employees. By starting small, you are pressing your expenditure to a minimum and you are not putting too much pressure on your business to do well immediately. It’s important that you know your field and that you’re not jumping into a new industry simply because your idea sounds sexy or cool to you. Enter it because you know it well and you are prepared... read more

Interview with Yvonne Morrison (The Business Boutique)

Where do you see business owners go wrong with their finance? 1. Avoid signing up for every shiny thing. While well intended some expenses are like gym memberships. You sign up but never use them. Review these, cancel some to give yourself some instant cashflow. 2. Don't give yourself away for free. Make sure you have contracts or terms of agreement in place with your clients. Clients should pay up front or as the project progresses. 3. Work in areas that generate money. Ask yourself is this task growing my business, generating me income or am I procrastinating? 4. Love your finances. Outsourcing to a bookkeeper/accountant is smart but keep in touch with your finances. Learn to understand them so you can make smart decisions. 5. Your money is your BFF. Treat your money as your BFF, be honest, keep in touch and give yourself permission to grow a flourishing friendship.

My Story – Threads for Boys

Hi my name is Daniella owner of Threads for Boys. An online store for funky clothing and accessories for boys. Following the birth of my son in 2013, I found it often difficult and frustrating to find un-boring boys clothes! Every store I would walk into I would be smacked in the face with racks upon racks of pink, sequins and tutus, only to find a lonely little rack at the back of the store with boring boys clothing. These usually came in array of colours ie white and blue, featured cars, robots and dinosaurs. YAWN! After speaking to other parents of boys, who apparently also shared the same frustrations, I decided parents everywhere needed a dedicated store offering stylish, fun and quirky clothing and accessories for their little boys. And so my 3rd child was born – Threads for Boys. 1 and 2 being my husband and son. I am by far no expert in the retail industry. I just had some background knowledge in E-commerce and some free time I desperately needed to fill. By “free time” I mean in between all the sleep regressions, nappy changes and food throwing.  So yes, I was going into this somewhat blind. To begin with I had a lot of negative feedback telling me that my idea would never work because boy’s clothes don’t sell! That mums of boys don’t buy “pretty” clothes or spend anywhere as much as they do on their girls. That all boys can get away with one pair of pants/shorts and a few t-shirts. As you can imagine this put a lot of doubt into my... read more

My Story – Hattgriff Handmade, Gabrielle Hatty

Hello. My name is Gabrielle Hatty and I love to sew! I have recently launched my new business – Hattgriff Handmade. It has been an interested journey coming to this time in my life, and it’s truly something I had never expected! My obsession with sewing began with the therapeutic need to create something beautiful following my magnificent Dad's sudden passing. A friend suggested I make a memory quilt using fabric from my Dad’s shirts. It wasn’t easy, in reality it took me over a week to recover from having to cut up the first shirt but in the end I was determined. Not only did I finish one quilt, I managed to complete six. One for each of my sisters, my Mother and my two sons. The fact that my boys now sleep under warm, delightfully heavy quilts that feature part of their Grandfather’s life, warms my heart. From there I began sewing each and every day. Around the births and breastfeeding of my three young children, as my Husband and I completed our handmade house in the Yarra Valley. Over time it has evolved, I love to sew handmade gifts for birthdays, Christmas and when new babies arrive. I have learned to sew clothing for my children and I love the fact that there is a new challenge and so many things I’ve never sewn before! I’ve discovered hand pieced hexies and my next quilt will feature these new and intricate shapes. It’s not fashionable but I love to hand sew whilst watching my children at play. My two beautiful boys welcomed a lovely little sister nearly a year... read more
