I had been actively avoiding the soppy post-party ‘I love everyone I met post’... but GUYZ... I LOVE EVERYONE I MET... haha. It was so great to turn some amazing online friendships into real life friendships at the @wordfetti Christmas/Birthday party last week. Situations like that have the potential to be awkward AF and it wasn’t! 💃🏻 Special shout out goes to the lovely ladies who partied after at good old @retros_fortitudevalley until I lost my voice and had to go home that is... @oladigital.co @socialsbyjarrah @readcity @katy_gillies at Merci Event Space

There are many things that define success for a business... money isn’t the be all and end all... BUT realistically it’s a damn good indicator of marketing success if you revenue is growing! 💰 One of my clients I work extremely closely with each week on not only marketing but the wider business... each month we have been smashing our online sales targets and this month is no exception! ✨ We are set to have the second highest sales month of the year (behind Mother’s Day month as it is their most popular due to the product 💐) This also works out to be YOY growth at something ridiculous like 3200% 💃🏻 Does anybody want to have a guess as to our overarching strategy is! We simplified it all and there is one word that describes it all in a nutshell perfectly....???

💃🏻 I was lucky enough last week to attend the amazing @businesschicks event in Brisbane, for free may I add thanks to the beautiful @nourish.by.her. So grateful and it was lovely to meet you ✨💛 . . What did I learn? Well there is not enough Insta captions that I could write to express how inspirational all the speakers were. A few highlights were @emmaisaacs (of course, working my way through her book right now, highly recommend - she may be my new fave person), @jasminedowling , @drlibby, @kayla_itsines , @celinalazarus and so many more. I learned about everything from what the heck your hormones do to your body to gaining some amazing business advice from some of the best! I am already looking forward to next years event ✨ . . I’ve never been a big, outspoken ‘girls run the world’ type of person, it’s my least favourite Beyonce song lol... HOWEVER over these two days surrounded by hundreds of passionate biz gals, I did find myself being genuinely wowed by the humbleness, non judgmental, supportive and positive attitudes of all the women there, it really was like nothing else I have experienced. I’m not going to say I didn’t feel a little anxious or uncomfortable because I always am in social situations... but I felt considerably LESS anxious than I anticipated. ✨ . . This was probably due to the amazing Insta-biz- friends that I finally got to meet. We drank champagne before midday and generally just had a great time filling our minds with inspiration and wisdom. Thank you to everyone that I had the pleasure of spending some time with 💛✨ (PS, I met so many of you, if I forget to tag, please don’t be offended, it’s just been a big week hehe xx) All in all, great event, great people... get ready to see some changes over my way! at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre

This wasn’t today’s planned post but don’t think you have to have a perfectly curated feed that is planned out and scheduled in.. share photos from events, pictures of yourself, exciting places you have been or maybe share a picture you got with four of the best girl bosses that ever existed.. EVEN IF YOU AREN’T LOOKING AT THE CAMERA 😂 Like me 🤦🏻‍♀️☝🏼 Take the pressure off yourself, don’t take yourself so seriously and have fun with it! Loved seeing at @karinairby @jasminedowling @eleanorpendleton and @sophiecachia_ at #9tothrivebrisbane today ✨💛

👉🏼 I’ve been a little bit stressed out and have a lot of my plate at the moment... BUT do you know what I took the time to realise? I’m busy! This is my fourth month of running my business full time and I have been BUSY FOR FOUR MONTHS! How great is that 💃🏻 Now I appreciate my busy because I’d MUCH rather be busy for myself than bored sh*tless for someone else! ✨ P.S Happy Birthday Shan you babe 🎉 @wildsparkcopy
