Just one step…

Just take one step… I love my Inner Circle girls and the way they come so willingly and openly to our group sessions, not only sharing themselves, but also giving to others in the group. Together we hold a beautiful space. As the girls spoke today, I listened and thought about how much of business is always about just taking … Read More

Confessions of a Female Entrepreneur…

I have a confession. I tossed up whether I should share this one. I’m a business nurturer after all, I promote how wonderful business is and help women grow theirs! But then decided that I’m sure I am not alone, and perhaps it may help others not feel so alone too. I am not immune to what others go through. … Read More

It’s time to stop being a human doing…

Have you succumbed to it before? The need to keep ‘doing’. Thinking that to be ‘successful’ comes in doing more? Thinking that achieving the next big goal/promotion/job/business will make you happy? Going to ALL the events/workshops/conferences? Running your diary with clockwork precision to make it through the week? Constantly moving the goal post? Hustling harder? I just need ‘x’ to … Read More

It’s time we gave Mums in Business a break…

Well, we need a break from a lot of things. But we also need a break from the pressure and expectation – especially if you work from home. I am constantly seeing overwhelmed mums reaching out for help in my newsfeeds. Wanting advice on how to be more productive. Wanting to know how to juggle it all. I can almost … Read More

Diary of a Recovering Hustler…

Dear Diary, This weekend has been hard. I feel like I haven’t got anything done I wanted to. I have been trying to finish off a website for 2 weeks which I am yet to do. I have a heap of emails that need clearing out and responding too. I head away this week and was wondering what work I … Read More

Confessions of an Overcomplicator…

It’s spring. And I have been on a bit of a cleaning frenzy! You know the ones where you just get a bee in your bonnet, and it all has to be done NOW! It has also meant, my little hoarded piles of business stuff around the house have been sorted. My notebooks, pieces of paper, course notes, post-its, inspirational … Read More

I see you there…. A letter to a fellow mum in business…

Dear Fellow Mum with a business….   I see you there.   Working at the kitchen bench in between preparing dinner.   I see you there.   Late at night when the house is silent, trying to get 8 hours of work done in 3 so you can somehow get some sleep. Hoping that tonight is the night your little … Read More

10 Things you don’t know about Carly…

10 things you ‘may’ not know about Carly (that aren’t just about business!)…. I thought it would be a bit of fun to share 10 things you may not know about me personally. What I didn’t think about in deciding this was that I am such an open book, it makes it very hard to actually find things you don’t … Read More

Can we really have it all??

  For so long I have been passionate about the legacy the women before us have left. The sacrifices they made, they fight the put up, the protests, the feminist movement, all so we could have a voice. So that we could work. So that we could have businesses and so that we could have it ‘all’.   If not … Read More

I was never REALLY busy….

“How are you? Still busy?” my friend said. “So busy. I haven’t stopped for ages. And not looking like changing anytime soon! You know me, LOVE to have lots of things on the go!” I would reply. Busy. Hustling. Workaholic. Never stopping. Next project. Next Business. More. More. More. This was me. Always. From my late teens I always had … Read More
