I’m sooooo stoked we asked Zara to snap this pic of @mark_newmark and I on the weekend. It’s a moment I want to be able to recall forever.
It might not seem much, but it’s been a long time coming. It’s the fruits of years of planting seeds, investing our time, money, and energy, and having the courage to pursue our visions for leaving significant legacies without loosing site of the way we create them along the way. It seems the season is right to harvest some of the early crop. And, what I love about this photo, is that it captures the joy we felt AND that we managed to take a moment of time and celebrate the ‘crop’. Just soak it in.
We had tried to celebrate it on Friday night over fish and chips at Balmoral, which is one of fav mini celebration things to do, but the weather didn’t lend itself to an enjoyable experience. However, an opportunity to jump on Mark’s parents’ boat and head to the Mrs Macquarie’s Chair arose.
As the weather beamed, Mark and I sat on the front of the boat, Sienna sleeping on my lap for hours, surrounded by the stunning Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and Botanical Gardens, laughing at the #Redbull #flugtag flying creations, and soaking it all in. You see last week, @thegrowproject became fully booked, something which hasn’t occurred in its lifetime. As well as that, @newmarkconstructions was awarded a beautiful $1.5m renovation project in Artarmon, for a new architect we haven’t work with before, off the back of some serious work on how we match make with potential architects and their clients to create successful relationships throughout both the project and the enduring relationship with architects who really get us and who we love to collaborate and create with.
This business chick is so proud of what we are building, and the way we are building it. So proud.
I hope you get to celebrate your little wins, and your big ones too, in parts of life that are important to you.
You’re the only one who can really give you a gold medal for winning at the things which are truly important to you.
And thank you for cheering us.

The most common challenge I find service based businesses face? Their online presence.
A lot of brick-and-mortars have successful service businesses locally, but are really struggling to translate that success online be it their website, social, email marketing etc. ⠀

You could be missing out new business and growth opportunities everyday simply because your online presence isn’t doing your quality service justice.⠀

Your audience either can’t find you or they’re choosing your competitors over you as your unique value isn’t clear. ⠀

As a service provider? Showing up and providing quality and value online to your audience is imperative, for SO many reasons. ⠀

I love helping women take their service based business to the next level by creating simple online marketing strategies.⠀

I'm opening up my calendar the next 2 weeks to offer free 45 min marketing clarity calls. ⠀

Do you have a service-based brick-and-mortar business and are ready to evolve your online brand? ⠀

Send me a DM or tag someone you think might benefit in talking with me. ⠀

My children are not at a reading age yet but I am sooo looking forward to it. We have always surrounded them with books, our bookshelves are overflowing with their favourite books. I know we have lit the fire in them and there will be no stopping them once they get reading. BRING IT ON! 😁📚📖

On the copy desk today is my trusty pear timer, my can’t-live-without @heycontrolfreak planner and a gift from the gorgeous @emmarmcqueen, with whom I had the most ridiculously fabulous coffee catch up this morning, and with whom I may or may not have hugged a little too long than was necessary. Can’t wait to get stuck into this book, and can’t wait to slightly-inappropriately hug Emma again. She’s my people.

What benefits can email marketing have on a business? 👩‍💻 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back in August, we spoke to Helen and Jac from @twogirlsandalaptop and we asked them this exact question. Their response was that it grows a special and intimate type of audience. People are much more choosy about who they hand their valuable email address over to vs. who they are happy to scroll past on their social feed. 🤳⠀

They also stated that if you’ve chosen the right niche and attracted them with the right lead magnet (which you will see via your subscriber growth) they will be the warm audience you need to sell to. They may not all buy from you, but many will become ‘brand advocates’ and recommend you as they get to know, like and trust you over time. 🕓 ⠀ ⠀

#GSuiteTip | Predictive Text Feature in Gmail

As an avid Gmail user I have been pleasantly surprised with this new little feature that's made it's way into Gmail. It's a small thing that cuts small amounts of time out of my day while I'm drafting emails. I've created a quick video to show how predictive text works in Gmail. Would love to hear your thoughts or experiences with it! Link in bio.

Bathbomb or Nature Wonder? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I kinda wish it was a bathbomb and I was hopping into the tub while listening to the rain...
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . 👀 💜 🌨

Thank you Mother Nature for the weather break, I find the rain mediative.
.
Us solo business people need to grab opportunities as they come, so I am taking a mini break Friday - Monday. .

Today, I’m stepping away from the laptop and spending the day with my coach @carlystephan in beautiful Brisbane.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve been working together for a few months now and to say that it’s been transformational would be an understatement.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve delved deep - deeper than I’ve ever gone - into my personal life, my past, my fears and my beliefs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve cracked me wide open.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve looked into the mirror and have finally started to love and embrace what I see, inside and out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve also looked at my business and asked the important question: what delights me? And from this place, I’ve revisited what I have - and want - to offer.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s so much work we’ve already done and today we will spend the day together to talk, journal, plan and... just see where the day takes us.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m so excited!

I've been thinking about gratitude and celebration a lot lately as we move towards the pointy end of the year. It's not *quite* time for reflection, but it's coming like a steam train, along with planning for 2019 which is the year I thought FOR SURE I'd be flying around in a hovercraft. I'm not, but I am planning, dreaming and scheming up a storm at Blue51 HQ but not without a ton of gratitude. -

Oh you know, just @_rebeccanewman_ being illuminated like the angel she is, while working on a laptop in a stranger’s driveway.

This day in Sydney last month was so fun... our plans for an indoor shoot were quashed, so we embraced it and went driving around looking for outdoor locations with nice light, space and clean backgrounds.
.
Thankfully I was in Sydney, so the weather was nice and sunny all day, and we had a lot of laughs figuring out how to represent Bec’s coaching brand @thegrowproject out in the wild 🌿.
.
Don’t have a budget for a studio session or don’t feel it’s “you”? There’s a whole world out there crying out to be photographed.

This was something my Mum and Dad always said to me, and always gave me the courage to take that scary step, or do that scary thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To have a chance of landing on your feet, first you have to jump....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so go on, take that step, do that scary thing, take a leap of faith... you just might land on both feet⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Okay. So. YFD has been an Instagram absentee — aside from a Story or two — for almost a month. Eek. What started as a "crap I ran out of time to write copy for tonight's scheduled post" quickly turned into an "argh... I'll just skip tonight and finish all the copywriting tomorrow" which then slid into "yikes... I guess I'll just sort all of YFD's social content out on the weekend" and before I knew it our 'Gram hadn't seen any content action for almost a month.⠀

And that, folks? Is a perfect example of what it's like to wear all the hats and do all the things to keep your brand on the rise at the busiest time of the year. But sometimes... We just run out of time. Whether it's getting behind on emails and forgetting about reconciling Xero to running out of time for social media and sliding into a content lull.⠀

November for brands and business owners? Heck-the-flip-tic. For us? Client work *always* comes first. So I didn't even notice when our little break turned into almost a month off Insty — oops. It wasn't until a few people reached out and asked if everything was okay. How lovely is that?!⠀

Well. I'm pleased to say all is okay. More than okay. And I'm *super* grateful for all the work and enquiries. It's just that head-down-bum-up time of year, and I forgot to do all our own marketing while I was busy doing everyone else's — ha! 😂

Can we chat for a minute guys? Like really stop and have a chat?
I had a call from a client who’s been MIA for a couple of weeks today, she’s a wonderful woman running a fantastic not for profit charity amongst many many other things.
She called me to apologize for being MIA after returning from a holiday. She apologized to me and asked me if I still wanted to work with her.
You see, this beautiful woman went into a bit of a slump emotionally after returning from a well deserved holiday, she got sick, then her mum who lives interstate got sick and between meeting her speaking and work commitments and visiting her mum, she fell into a rut.
Her phone call to me today was to apologize to me for going MIA on me.
My answer? You have nothing to apologize for!
We all have our ups and our down, it’s the rollercoaster that is life, the business ownership journey seems to have a bumpier ride, but I can promise you that you’re not alone.
Please don’t feel you have to apologize for taking a mental break, or for going MIA because you were overwhelmed or not coping. You are only human, you are allowed to have a slump, a bad day, week, month.
All I ask is, please be kind to yourself and to others, as you never know what someone else is going through.
Make sure you tell the people around you how your feeling, because they’re there to help and support you. 💕
This incredible illustration is by @onbeinginyourbody and I highly recommend going over and following her page because it’s a beautiful reminder to be kind to yourself and asks you to check in with yourself.

This #tetraspermatuesday, I had a proper look at all my greenhouse babies and I'm pleased to report that none of my tetra cuttings have lost leaves, and a few of them are even growing new ones! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I even found that some philodendron glorious and gloriosum cuttings I had presumed dead were just killing old leaves to focus their energy on new roots and leaf shoots. Yay!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Propagation is such a fun hobby. It can be scary to give your plants the chop ✂️ but it's so satisfying when your cuttings start turning into whole new plants.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's also a really fun way of growing new plants to swap with other plant people for new plants. One of the things we love most about this fun little community is the willingness to share amongst plant people. Lexi and I are so glad we stumbled into a crowd who share tips, experiences, plants and cuttings just because.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You guys are lovely.
We appreciate you. 🌱♥️
