I’ve always been a storyteller. Engaging a room, a team or a dinner table is what I thrive on and love to do (perhaps I’m a little bit full of myself). The feeling of having people emotively connect to a topic is an amazing opportunity for me to share what I have learned. So after blogging for almost 10 yrs, being one of the most read influencers on LinkedIn, being read by millions of people around the planet, I decided to write my first book.
As a speaker and an entrepreneur, I’m saddened when I hear how people do not follow their dreams or at least make a powerful choice about where they spend their time. The need for purpose and passion in our daily lives is what drove me to write this book, and for those people who want to develop the best version of themselves – I wanted to write it for them. In some ways, it is what I wish I had known when I started on my own long and winding career path.
Being on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank, I was asked regularly about how people could make their dream a business reality, so in 2016 I released my second book – Ready To Soar – Turn Your Brilliant Idea Into A Business You Love.
Whilst LOVING what you do is essential, going into it with your eyes wide open is even more important.
Ready To Soar – allowed me to share the scars, the learnings and the wisdom I’ve gained after 15 years of entrepreneurship and learning.
I have also penned other books including I Want What She’s Having: The Experience of Creating a Pleasurable Business (out of print), Five Thanks a Day (eBook) and The Little Book of Answers (Employee Engagement).
Writing for me is about sharing vision, learnings, failures and the realities of starting, growing and scaling businesses, from an honest and transparent perspective.
