What are some things that you love?
I love that my professional successes have made it possible for me to enjoy the lifestyle I had imagined for myself when I first began my career, and I’m certainly grateful that I am now able to spend so much time simply enjoying the beautiful wine region of Adelaide Hills in the company of my husband and our puppy. Of course, I also love having the opportunity to empower my fellow female entrepreneurs through the community I created at GraceLever.com. It’s so gratifying to help others achieve success through the simple act of “doing.”
What’s your favorite T.V. show?
My husband and I rarely watch television, but I have to admit to indulging in the occasional episode of “Shark Tank” on Network Ten. It’s always fascinating to see the evaluative processes unfold, especially when it comes to the speed of the decisions being made and the potential consequences of those decisions for all parties involved.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
Early in my career, I was advised that although it is always important to take what I do seriously, I should be careful not to take myself too seriously. This advice is part of the reason I continue to advocate for a philosophy based on the principle of “doing,” and it certainly played a role in inspiring me to take action to create a supportive community for female entrepreneurs all over the world.
What’s one thing you’ve learned since you started your career?
I’ve learned that there are far too many people in this world who have not taken the action steps necessary to realize their full potential, especially when it comes to entrepreneurship. There are so many who aspire to pursue a career as an entrepreneur but, for some reason or another, need to feel a greater sense of empowerment before taking any kind of action in pursuit of their entrepreneurial career goals. As a result, I learned how to help inspire and empower aspiring entrepreneurs not just through support in the form of a community of like-minded people, but also through access to the tools and resources necessary for entrepreneurial success.
What are you most proud of?
I’m proud that my belief in the power of “doing” has been validated time and again by my own entrepreneurial successes, but I am most proud that this philosophy has been further validated by the successes of my ambitious and enthusiastic community members at GraceLever.com & The Doing Academy.
