If it has to do with self-promotion and the web, I am your girl.
You are here because (tick all that apply)…
1.) you just need more super duper clients to create the impact & income that you want to create,
2.) you are passionate about what you do, but you feel icky about putting yourself out there and promote yourself like crazy,
3.) you know deep down that you need to learn how to market your business, but you’re overwhelmed with all the information out there and don’t know where to start,
4.) you’re tired of the ‘guru blah’ and just want someone to take you by the hand, guide you through this online jungle and get you RESULTS.
I get it. I’ve been there and so have all my clients. It’s tough out there when you don’t know how to do this thing. But there is a silver lining…you made it HERE.
And I can help you beat your Sales & Marketing Monsters (you know – those voices inside your head that keep you small, that stop you from doing the things you MUST do in order to succeed, the uncomfortable stuff that will bring you exactly the results that you crave and will enable you to fly – at last!).
Who’s That Girl?
I’m a german veterinarian turned marketing ninja. Yes, I come from a background where the words ‘sales’ and ‘marketing’ are regarded worse than the ‘F’ word. In fact, during my veterinary days I turned down a job, because I was told that my ‘sales figures’ would be reviewed on a quarterly basis. SHOCKING, right?
So what changed? Well, I listened. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but life finally got my attention when I almost died for the second time! And I don’t want you to have to go through what I did to learn the lessons I’ve learned.
Being mauled by a Pit Pull a mere three months into my job as a veterinarian didn’t get my attention, but a emerging unscathed (-ish) from a bush fire that wrote a dark chapter in the history of a nation really did the trick.
There was a moment during the fire as I feared for my husband and I and where it occurred to me that I might never hug my children again, when I heard the message loud and clear: ‘You’ve GOT to change.’
That instant became my point of no return, my wakeup call.
I saw in all clarity all the things that I HAVE – my children, my family and friends, a roof over my head and no real problems (like where is our next meal going to come from). I knew things had to change. Today I would probably rephrase that to ‘I had to change,’ and that’s what I tell my clients — there will come a day, whether you seek it, or it finds you — that you decide to change.
The answers to your struggles are out there, no, let me rephrase – they are inside you. I believe that most people already know what’s right for them. But most of us are too busy living our lives, worrying and fretting to stop and pay attention.

Have you ever looked at your life & business and thought: Is this it? Is this all it’s going to be?
If the answer is ‘yes’ then you have to do something. Whether you’re trapped in a situation where you’re bored and depressed, as I was before the fire, or the gates of hell are unexpectedly opening in your face, as they did to us, if you’re not where you want to be, doing what you want to do, you’re just not listening.
I did. I listened. I started doing heaps of things I had never done before, not even thought of doing. Scary things. First I read books and did heaps of research online. I started with Robert Kiyosaki’s ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ and went from there. I read everything from Paul Mckenna to Dr Demartini, Cialdini, Dale Beaumont, Brad Sugars etc.
I spent a lot of money on myself, but not on clothes or make-up but on books and courses. I started a coaching course. I enrolled with Toastmasters. I started speaking in front of people (probably the scariest thing of all). I got my feet wet in business. And, I loved it.
It Took Time
I’m not here to tell you it was easy. I’m not saying that there were no bumps in the road. There were bumps then, and there are bumps now. Things almost always get harder before they get better. I’m not going to lie to you.
I did a coaching course, then NLP, then Trainer’s Training. I learnt everything I could about the online space. First Websites and Web design, then SEO, then Marketing…
In short: I got myself a whole new education. I completely reprogrammed myself. Within eight months I changed so much that people who had met me ‘before’ didn’t recognize me ‘after.’
Shout It From The Rooftops
My first business was almost a natural evolution as my best mate was an IT genius…so we started developing websites.
I still do that occasionally, but my passion is giving people a strategy that will get them results – fast. Being there every step of the way as I watch them go from confusion to clarity, from shaky to steadfast. From waiting for people to turn up at their doorstep to shouting it from the rooftops.
Happily Ever After?
I don’t believe in happily ever after – I believe in the journey. People think that success is a destination when all it is is a staircase that we keep climbing. There’s landings and platforms on the way, but it never stops.
In the end, I am a sucker for connection. I love hanging out with the ‘right’ people…creative people, people who genuinely want to make a difference, want to create change, courageous passionate people, action-takers!
THAT’s what I’m in it for (…and a luxury tree-house that one day will be my business headquarters).
PEOPLE are what I love most about my biz. I love the online space and all it can do for a business as well as a life, and that includes websites, blogs, social media, video, podcasting…the lot!
Be The Light That You Want To See In The World
The world needs you right now. Your people need you. They need you to be happy. To be radiant. To love your life and whatever it is that you do. They need you to be passionate and upstanding, and to be an example. So please, go out and THRIVE in your business, LOVE your life and most of all, make the most of every single day!
