β€’ out of office for the rest of 2018 is officially on πŸ™ŒπŸΌ after a humongous year of working on my biz (and only one week off πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) I am so bloody excited to unplug for the next 3 weeks in England with my fave fam and friends πŸŽ…πŸΌβ€οΈ #yorkshirepuddingshereicome

β€’ treats 🌺🌸🌺 since injuring myself at the weekend and spending a lotttt of time thinking while staring at the ceiling / sky, I have developed new found appreciation for many things: 1. Physios + acupuncturists are miracle workers. 2. People that deal with debilitating spinal issues on a regular basis deserve medals. 3. My toes are insanely good at picking up objects from the floor, I even managed a carton of juice πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. 4. I am eternally grateful to have the best personal nurse ever, even when I’m being a little brat πŸ’˜ @michaelsears
β€’ so chuffed to have locked in this groovy little pirate cove for our wedding pre-pardy πŸ™†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ literally SO many activities to look forward to that week I could squeal 🐷🌴 #thesearsywedding #somuchroomforactivities #caughtmeoffguard

β€’ one of my favourite things that I inherited from my madre is my fabulous magpie vision πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ although at times it makes life hard when your attention is so easily diverted, it has also lead to the proud ownership of countless shells, flowers, treasures and other flotsam + jotsam that will most likely continue to clutter up my home until I am old and grey πŸ‘΅πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌ
β€’ the greatest loves of my life!! πŸ’˜πŸŒπŸŒŸ
β€’ feeling reflective AF thinking about this time two years ago when we arrived in Toowoomba fresh off the boat from England (via a cheeky spell in Indo). There was a massive heatwave, flies kept sitting on my face, I saw a ginormous huntsman spider in the first 24 hours, I was sweating from places I didn't know I could sweat from, I couldn't understand anyones accent (even Micks had changed!) and I remember thinking, what the flippers have I done here?! πŸ€” We had no idea where we wanted to live or what we wanted to do, we were flattt broke and we spent the next 14 months navigating a whole lot of interesting and pretty difficult experiences from battling with visas to moving houses and moving jobs, meeting new people and missing old people aaaand just about everything else in between. ⚑ Fast forward to the present day and I couldn't be happier with everything that me and this goofball have achieved this year! We've both started our own businesses which we adore, we live in a house ruled by pets on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (biased, sure) and we spend our days doing what we want, where we want, when we want. Safe to say that despite the rollercoaster that we've been riding the last couple years, I am now pretty obsessed with where we're at and how far we've come and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us! With all the negativity flying around these days, sometimes you've just gotta toot your own horn and sprinkle some love around right? πŸ’˜ The moral of my fairly long story is if you're thinking about taking a leap, just do it 🀘🏽 it's bloody hard yakka (see I'm fluent Australian now) but if you never try, you'll never know! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #tootyourownhorn #taketheleap #startedfromthebottomnowwehere

β€’ i've been lucky enough to work with some INCREDIBLE small business owners this year and have seen first hand the impact that successful sales have on their lives.

SO over the next few days I will be adding a 🌟 SMALL BUSINESS CHRISTMAS SHOPPING GUIDE 🌟 to my website, which will feature a variety of amazing online stores to give all of you lovely people out there some inspiration and help so you can shop small this Christmas! πŸŽ…πŸ½ I'm still looking for a few more stores to add to the list so if you know of (or if you are) a fabulous small business owner that would appreciate a shout out and a few more Christmas orders, please tag the store in the comments below so I can add it in. The more the merrier! ✨ β €β €β €β €β € #hohoho #mrsclausandralph #shopsmallthischristmas

β€’ what would you do if social media crashed overnight? Where would all your followers go? Would you still be able to run your business? It’s a pretty scary thought if your livelihood depends solely on communicating with a group of people that you have no control over! πŸ’­ As a business owner mailing lists are one of the MOST IMPORTANT things that you can have. It's an audience that belongs to you, you control what content they see from you and when. No pesty algorithms to master and no shouting from the rooftops amongst all the other noise, wondering if your message is going to be heard by the right people or just fall into the social media abyss. Your mailing list is a group of people that are your exact target market and when you hit 'send' on those newsletters or blog posts, you know that they're going to land in the inboxes of people that *actually* want to read them. πŸ’‘ If you haven't already started building your mailing list, now is the time! And if you've started but you're struggling to get it growing, then it probably needs some TLC. I've put together a ⚑ FREE GUIDE ⚑ on mastering your mailing list. It's full of juicy nuggets of knowledge to explain how mailing lists will benefit your business, as well as actionable takeaways to help you get it going and GROWING! πŸ’– Head to my website for more details and to get it sent directly to your inbox! As always if you have any questions, please reach out πŸ’˜
