The entrepreneur’s journey Coming Up this week 6 June 2016

Shark Tank Naomi Simson
Ginger and Smart #RedDress new collection – Thanks to EY for hosting at the Art Gallery of NSW on Thursday
Pick of the Month Newslink – I have signed copies in Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne airports this week


Sometimes I simply laugh because as I start each week with the question – “what is the one thing that I need to get done this week so that if I get it done everything will become easier?” This might seem like an easy question… however this week particularly I did not quite achieve it – though recruiting new team members will mean that the next weeks should get easier… Yet this week it was a wonderful blur of Ready to Soar, Shark Tank, RedBalloon and Redii… with a dash of Hegs. I traveled to Canberra for a speaking engagement on Employees are the new Customer, and return for the EY Entrepreneur of they Year NSW event talking about the millennial’s, trends and culture.

I flew to Melbourne to speak to a select group of leaders talking all things Employer Branding, returning to Sydney in plenty of time to be the live tweeter for Shark Tank Episode 5 – now on Wednesdays and Thursdays after Masterchef. A RedBalloon board meeting on Thursday, as well as being a guest for EY Women’s fashion event – Ginger and Smart showing their fabulous creations. And Brisbane for the EY Northern Region Entrepreneur of the year event talking all things start up to scale up  – Then to Melbourne to catch up with family and friends (and a game of footy) And the Melbourne Aquarium – to watch swimming with sharks..

This week too will be full – but wonderful.

Monday: Melissa Connell joins me as Executive Assistant, there will be a book signing, a meeting with a NSW minister, and Redii team catch ups

Tuesday: A day of meetings and moving the game forward. (Some writing might get done)

Wednesday: Radio interviews, 200 year anniversary of the Botanical Gardens celebration and Shark Tank after Masterchef on TEN (8.40) – Episode Six

Thursday: Adelaide for a Hegs planning meeting and EY Entprepreneur of the year presentation, returning to Sydney for the Heads Over Heels event (with a little promotion of Ready to Soar – thanks Dymocks) Shark Tank after Masterchef on TEN (8.40) – Episode Seven

Friday: Interviews and Channel Ten lunch… (then heading north for the long weekend)

    Hi Naomi! Happy to meet you! I’m amazed by your schedule for this week. How can you possible do all that? I can never manage my scheduling, especially when I’m om a business trip. Once I was nearly fired for being late (I’m such a procrastinator!).
    You’re a superwoman:) I’ll be looking forward to your news posts on the outcomes of your meetings and your future plans, too.
    Samantha (happy mom and writer)
