I BELIEVE

+ you should not read these blogs unless you love rambly, truthful, and slightly opinionated

Balance Is Overrated

Balance Is Overrated

This blog was inspired by a presentation I was invited to give to the Motivating Mum’s community on International Women’s Day, 2017. I wanted to talk to you about balance…because I think it’s balderdash And while maybe, yes, saying it’s a conspiracy to keep us down...

What If I Could Be Both?

What If I Could Be Both?

What if Jay forgets her entire story? No, that’s not happening. So, I don’t know if you noticed as I walked up here, and maybe you didn’t. Maybe you thought, “I know that girl from the interwebs,” or “Look, there’s Jay. She washed her hair and she got out of her...

I’m Not Sure I’m A Mumpreneur

I’m Not Sure I’m A Mumpreneur

Not a mompreneur either. Not a blondepreneur, or femmepreneur, or even a bedpreneur. In fact, I’m not even an entrepreneur, in the pure sense of the term. But I am a business owner. A creative in business. And a mother. (And a wife, a Musical Theatre nut, a Caesar...

Are You A Dodgy Wife? I Thought I Was Too

Are You A Dodgy Wife? I Thought I Was Too

In my spare time (ha!) I stalk the Duggars and read blogs of polygamist Mormon women. … I know. (If you’ve never binge-watched Big Love while considering which of your girlfriends you could bear to live with, you’re missing out!) OK, it’s partly because they...

Don’t Give Up Your Day Job… Yet

Don’t Give Up Your Day Job… Yet

Let me say this up front: I’m calling BS on a lot of those “I quit my job and within 6 months I’m making 7 figures a fortnight” stories. Who ARE those women? Some kind of entrepreneurial bandits? And what kind of message are they perpetuating? That if we only TRIED...

Why I Can’t Meet You For a Quick Business Coffee

Why I Can’t Meet You For a Quick Business Coffee

I am roaring through my inbox (still haven’t taken the time to set up the email filters like my business coach has taught me to), trying to maximise my writing time while handling incoming emails, upgrading my proposal document, and carefully scheduling every moment...

5 Tips on Public Speaking for Scaredy Cats

5 Tips on Public Speaking for Scaredy Cats

When I originally launched Crisp Copy, I couldn’t imagine public speaking would become part of my business journey. The idea of speaking publicly, either in front of real, live humans or on the air, made my heart palpitate and mind race. And here’s the odd thing: with...

Resourcing and Outsourcing

Resourcing and Outsourcing

Last month I was invited to be a featured speaker at an upcoming Perth event. With 15 highly successful, professional women in business as my co-speakers, the event aims to encourage and empower women to re-enter the workforce. My topic is the only one geared towards...

Disconnect to Reconnect

Disconnect to Reconnect

It’s 47 degrees in the shade and I’ve been awake since 5am fishing with my unexpectedly angling obsessed daughter. I’ve also taken my three-year-old swimming twice, all the while allaying his fears that Santa won’t find us in the ‘holiday caravan’, and had an in-depth...

How Not To Use Your Facebook Friends for Networking

How Not To Use Your Facebook Friends for Networking

I was surprised when I started my business how many people just LOVED me at networking events. I mean, I’d go to these things, meet someone for less than ten minutes, swap cards and voila! They wanted to be my friend on Facebook. I must be likeable, right? It took me...

Why Get Social In Business?

Why Get Social In Business?

I often indulge in a little internal chuckle when I get a message or phone call that begins with “I stumbled across your business page in my Facebook feed…” Nope, you didn’t stumble. This was no accident. I put myself there. Right in your path. I often hear business...

Business Networking for Introverts

Business Networking for Introverts

There’s a couple of women doing business in Perth. And man, are they doing business. I follow them on social media and I’ve met them a couple of times at various events. They’re super smart, funny, exciting women with great business concepts and just being near them...

Who Did You Plan On Being?

Who Did You Plan On Being?

I am a content writer, editor, social media savvy communicator, super mother and Hills enthusiast, but, when I was small, I wanted to be a lawyer, a musical theatre star and an internationally based roller skating waitress. Preferably all at once. As young people, we...
