  • WE MOMENT. After being in business for several years, I met so many other entrepreneurs who did have their numbers up to date and didn’t understand or value the importance of understanding the financial side. Finn and I have been able to build a fantastic business, that enables us to work from anywhere in the world and travel the planet (one of my life goals) and I want other people to be able to do more of what they love because their business is as successful as it can be.
  • PROUD AS PUNCH. Being named as one of Melbourne’s top 100 most influential and creative citizens, and the book deal I landed as a result of that. Holding my first copy of Get Rich Slow was probably the actual proudest moment.
  • 20 YEAR OLD SELF. Stay single, have fun, keep learning and don’t take yourself so seriously.
  • EMBARRASSING MOMENT. There are sooooo many, most involve copious amounts of alcohol, however falling over at my Grade 7 formal (not drunk – I was only 12) in front of all my school mates, including the cute boys I had crushes on was pretty embarrassing and haunts me to this day!
  • TRUE TALL POPPY. When I returned from living and travelling overseas for three years, people used to say to me “Wow! You’re so lucky you got to travel for three years.” and I still get comments like this today, about how lucky I am. I was always confused about these comments as there was no luck involved, I set a goal, worked hard and saved my money to enable me to go. Then I booked a flight and did it. I know we can all get lucky from time to time, but I’m a big believer in setting goals and forging your own path to get there.
  • PERFECT WEEKEND. Dinner and drinks on Friday evening, a long run on Saturday morning followed by some time chilling out with Finn. A night in on Saturday watching a good movie and brunch with friends on Sunday. Sunday afternoon at the beach with a picnic and a glass of wine to top it off!
  • $20 PERFECT DATE Grab a bottle of bubbles out of the fridge (I always have a couple chilling), the picnic blanket and stop by Maloney’s on Coogee Bay Road for fresh salads and delicious raw deserts, then head down to the beach with my love, Finn.
