THE ENTREPRENEURIAL MAVERICKS ARE THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO TAKE ACTION, STEP OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE AND RISK DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY IN PURSUIT OF A PURPOSE-FILLED GOAL.
Hey there, I’m Jaclyn and you’ve found your way to this part of the internet, where I talk about growth, community, being authentic, the most important business strategies and why you need to do things your way in business.
I’m a writer, creative, strategist and eternal student.
I believe that with grit and courage you can have a business that you feel truly passionate about.
I believe in a never-give-up mentality. Meditating. Long term strategy over short term gain. Being challenged. Yoga. Community over competition. Being humble. Women supporting women. Travelling. Being curious. And a good pair of running shoes.
People who gather here are:
And the unashamedly passionate entrepreneurs
HOW DID THIS ALL COME ABOUT?
When I started my first business I had big plans. I wanted to do things my own way. To set my own schedule. To be creative and make something with my hands. To bring joy to someone’s life. And to be fully in control of how much money I made.
Things didn’t pan out the way I wanted.
>> I couldn’t do it all on my own. 18 months into my business I was burnt out, overwhelmed and working all hours. I had no support network of people who really understood what I was trying to achieve. My family and friends weren’t equipped to help.
I was ready to pack it all in when I met my first business BFF, Heidi Thompson. With her support I started to grow a small community of like minded peeps who understood what I was trying to achieve. In supporting each other, I started to feel less overwhelmed, more in control and able to see how I could take my business to the next level.
That’s why I’ve created this space, to show you that you don’t have to figure this out all on your own. You don’t have to keep relying on your partner or friends to provide you with the support you need. In this community, I understand what you’re trying to achieve and I’m here to help you create a thriving business.
>> People are the most important part. A business will never get off the ground without people. Customers. A community. Business BFF’s. Supporters. Raving fans. Industry leaders. Those that want to learn from you. Those you want to learn from. All people.
Coming from a corporate background, task completion was top priority. People, while still very important, came second. In business, people come first. Always. I had a very steep learning curve when starting out, trying to figure out how to put people first and in a way I was comfortable with.
If you’re looking to find your people in your own unique way, that’s something I talk about here. Be it through social media strategies, networking events, collaborating and partnerships, approaching your business hero or being super smart with the content you create.
>> A painful ending + fresh start. After my marriage to my best friend of 12 years ended, I needed something new. I had built my previous business based on the needs of that life. Now finding myself on a completely different path, I realised I had an amazing opportunity to start again. Take all the good things I had learnt from my previous business and turn them into a new business.
With more experience, a few new life lessons about failure under my belt and a desire to show you that you can have what you want, regardless of what life throws at you, I’m going to share with you all the best ways to help you grow your business.
And when they happen, I’m going to help you through the tough times too.
>> A knack for the numbers + organisation. I’m a numbers gal. Born + bred + qualified with a fancy-title-and-all. I’ve helped Directors + CFO’s make profitable financial decisions, understand what the numbers are telling them and advised on the best strategy to move forward with.
Understanding your business numbers is paramount to helping your business grow the way you intend it to. And I talk about having all the right systems in place so that you keep moving forward and don’t lose your mind.
I show you that numbers and organisation are not as scary as you might think.
If you’re still reading and thinking, man I like this woman, we’d totally have a good laugh over a big G+T, I’ve a final thing I’d like to mention upfront…
I am new here. This business is still in it’s infancy, which means I’m still learning and growing. As I try new strategies and learn better ways to do things in business, you’ll be the first to know about them. I plan to show and not just tell. And when I get it wrong, which I will, I’ll let you know what happened and how to fix it. Some things you may have seen or heard before, but this is my take on them and my take on how they can help you and your business.
I’m not here to give you quick works-over-night tricks, but long term strategies that’ll help your business grow, scale and make you proud to call it your own.
