Living in New York City can be a daunting experience. Constantly living amongst concrete buildings piled on top of one another that balancing on layers upon layers of underground subway and tunnel systems, a night sky that is never really dark and a little hazy from the ‘light pollution’ and very little greenery or wide open space. Not to mention the other 8.5 MILLION humans who are navigating the 784 square kilometers with you.Read More
The money side of business can be a real bitch. Let’s be honest, where the fck do you even start when you’ve been working for someone else your whole life and now all of a sudden you are solely responsible for pricing, invoicing, paying bills, cash flow, and taxes? If you’re like me and received little to no money management education as a child you’re most likely feeling stuck and overwhelmed at the thought of it.Read More
New York City is a must-see for every creative looking to make their dreams a reality. It has to be one of the only places in the world that lives up to its reputation and then some.

You’ve heard it before, you can’t do it alone and in actual fact it’s impossible. A key to building a successful business is networking. Finding your tribe, your dream team, and your number one fans.

I have been learning how to access the subconscious mind in order to grow my business with abundance and ease. The mind is like an iceberg and majority of the time we only access the tip, completely unaware of the untapped potential of our true power.Read More
What fascinates me about people’s startup stories is that they are never predictable and certainly never smooth sailing. Often we see people’s success, be it their awards, the end products, their sales revenue, the car they drive, the house they buy, the followers they accumulate. What we don’t see, is what happened behind the scenes in the beginning. The heartaches, struggles, challenges, risks, rejections, hardships and obstacles that they had to overcome in order to bring their dreams to life.Read More
So here I am, literally sitting in a park under a tree on a perfect Fall (Autumn) day in Brooklyn, New York. I’m overlooking the East River and admiring the Manhattan Skyline. It couldn't be more picture perfect and yet so surreal all at the same time. This very moment has been a dream of mine for five years now. Somewhere between binge-watching Gossip Girl and obsessing over Instagram accounts, I fell hard for New York City, New York.Read More
StartUp Creative was never meant to be a big corporate business.
I will admit that there have been times over the past 3 years I have toyed with the idea of having a big office full of employees, a company car and a CEO style corner office in some big city. But I really don’t think it’s for me.
You see, the desire to start my own business came from the lack of freedom that a ‘traditional 9-5’ career in Australia gave me. I hated that I was only entitled to 4 weeks holiday a year. My health and that of my families could only afford 10 sick days a year and my creative and earning capacity was capped and restricted by those higher up the ladder.Read More
The world of business can be an all-consuming place to exist. Whether you’re just starting out and finding your way into the game or have been in the field of play for decades now, there is no denying that once you decide to play, your chances of being substituted are slim (not even for injury). Your mind is forever thinking about what needs to happen next to keep the game alive and ensure all players are moving in the right direction.
I’ve personally battled with maintaining the balance between running (and growing) a successful business and keeping myself alive and well.Read More

So many of my coaching clients often come to their coaching sessions asking me if I’m going to make them ‘blog!’ When I first started out I’ll admit that I personally felt the pain and dred of having to commit to writing every single week. I think it must have been the fear I have stored my cell memory from my school days of assignments and homework.

So as your friend and online business coach, let me give it to you straight...YES, you need to be blogging or creating FREE content of some sort (facebook Live, Podcast, Youtube Channel, Email Mailouts, Webinars, Mini Courses, Opt In’s) every single week.

People always ask me if I have a degree in Business. The answer is no, I dropped out of a Sports and Exercise Science degree when I was 17 years old. I completed a couple of subject of my communications degree but was only really there for the public speaking course.Read More
I used to think that exchanging my time for money was as good as life got and that the purpose of life was to work out how to get more money for my time. Eventually I would buy 1 house, fall pregnant, go on maternity leave and return to work so I could earn my super and eventually retire on $40,000 a year.
Throughout 205/16 I found myself on a deep personal journey into the world of self development.Read More

I was never one of those kids who always wanted to be an entrepreneur, I didn't have aspirations for a homegrown enterprises on the side of the road at age 7, nor did I even know it was possible. In fact up until aged 22 I was convinced that working a 9-5 with a capped annual salary and four ‘approved’ weeks of holidays a year was ‘living the dream.’Read More
Being an entrepreneur/freelancer is straight-up one of the hardest gigs in town. To the outside world it looks a lot like midweek beach hangs, #officegoals and creative freedom (all thanks to a crafty Instagram snap and a fabulous filter.) What’s really going on behind the scenes is a shambles of never ending to-do lists, figuring out how to build a website from scratch, chasing up unpaid invoices, scrolling through pinterest trying to find something to post on Insta, googling how to pay taxes, and juggling high maintenance clients. Relate?Read More
