MY STORY

FOUNDER, entrepreneur, mama bear, and marketing educator*


My soft spot for small businesses settled in early on.

I was just 19 when I surprised everyone - including myself - by building a successful Australian fashion label with little more than some bright-eyed enthusiasm, the brilliance of my best-friend and boot-strapped organic marketing efforts that had us flying by the seat of our shorts into 16 luxury designer stores (along with a Myer contract).

Sans social media, mind you. It didn’t even exist back then.

And if you’ve ever heard the unbelievable fable of the femme-preneur that put a delightfully groomed standard poodle on the runway at Australian Fashion Week, you’re welcome. That was me.

Needless to say, I loved every second of scrambling to find creative ways to fuel the marketing buzz for my brand.

Yet despite my success, it didn’t really sink in that my future was in small business marketing until life reminded me that it was short, and it was up to me to make it sweet.

So, I did.

I leapt off the ledge, devoted myself to earning a Bachelor of Business Communications, and simultaneously dove face first into a full-time career as a marketing freelancer.

If Cirque du Soleil had seen me back then, they’d have hired me on the spot. I juggled lectures, copywriting, html and media budgets simultaneously without breaking a sweat (okay, maybe with the help of some clinical strength Red Bull).

As a marketer, I have had a front row seat to witnessing the wealth of misguided mistakes business owners make when it comes to their marketing. There were doozies, disasters, and dramas galore. And each time they happened, I was called in to correct and create a strategy to turn their stress into success.

Over time, I developed a sixth sense for the strategies that would work and the ones that were destined to fall short. And gently steering my clients towards the winners meant I got to see just how consistently the right marketing could achieve generous repeat returns on investment.

Flash forward a few – cough okay, over a decade cough – years later and I’ve been responsible for marketing and PR strategies that have generated upwards of $10.8 million worth of sales for the brands I’ve helped.

Today, I’m the smiling marketing specialist leading my (amazing, by the way) team in helping small businesses shift their misguided marketing, start-up stress and content confusion into a harmonious, high-converting online presence their audience adores.


And I’m here to tell you


Size doesn’t matter.



At least when it comes to your budget. I’ve lovingly nannied budgets from $0 per month to $80,000 per month and I can assure you – your budget doesn’t determine your success.

Sure, a healthy budget can catalyse action. But true marketing success comes down to doing the right things at the right time in the right way.

Which I know is the confusing part for many small businesses!

That’s why we’re here.

“The first time I saw the client’s advertising on… A bus. A Taxi. A Billboard. In a Magazine. In a Newspaper. On a Front Cover. Online. Heard on the radio. On TV. In a Retail Store. On a Sponsors Website. At the Cinema. As a Headline.. Basically, the first time for everything is always a highlight.”
