Hot August Night

July 9, 2019 | 0 Comments

You ever listened to Hot August Night? Start to finish, not as background music, but like you’re there? Man. What a thing that must have been. Doesn’t really matter if you like Neil Diamond or not, but that was one of those moments where people came together, humans, and shared something truly connecting. He was …

Arms wide

July 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

You know when you feel the pressure mounting, like everything is closing in on you?  Something I’ve only recently learned is that sometimes the answer is not to fight, but to surrender. If you feel you have your heart in the right place, then open your arms and let go, see where the currents take …

What the hell has been happening?

April 26, 2019 | 0 Comments

Some people reading this won’t care, but some people have said they’re enjoying the open and honest “behind-the-scenes of building a startup” side of this story, so I’ve forced myself to put away the work and sit down and write another chapter – this one simply an update. Which I shall attempt to make not …

I have this vision

February 27, 2019 | 4 Comments

I bought a book in the first week of January, from this little shop called Zetta Florence in Fitzroy. Picture the most beautiful stationary shop imaginable. It’s a Leuchtturm 1917 notebook, A4 size, plain black cover, lovely rounded edges, and sixty-two big, blank, cream-coloured pages inside. No lines, no grids. I bought this book because …

Sorry. Too human.

February 11, 2019 | 0 Comments

He-llo. I hope you can hear the apology in my hello. I haven’t written anything here since November 22nd, last year. I hope you can hear the sheepish shuffling. I know I promised to openly and honestly document this project. It would be easy to say I’ve just been too busy. That things have kind …

My first transformation

November 22, 2018 | 1 Comment

“I promise to share the founding of this agency as it happens” is my first broken promise. Or maybe it’s my third. That would be a shame. It’s been a few weeks since my last post, and if I’d been true to my promise, you’d be forgiven for assuming I’d decided to give it all …

My night as a woman

October 29, 2018 | 0 Comments

I got back from Fiji last night, and an experience I will never forget. I learned something about tribes, and I learned something about women. And I guess I learned a little something about myself. Thought I’d share. About a year ago my speaking agent asked me if I wanted to do a talk in …

Alright then, go get on with it

October 8, 2018 | 3 Comments

It’s raining. And howling. I’m sitting in an airbnb in Coogee, up for the week in Sydney with my son, who has a “meetup” with a few of his flipping idols. That’s trampolining. It’s a whole thing. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen him so excited. He just ran past me on his way to …

The thing about cliffhangers

October 1, 2018 | 7 Comments

The thing about cliffhangers… Ha. Apologies for the use of such an indulgent storytelling device – it was 40% writer games, 60% awareness that the post was getting quite long. Before I continue the story, I want to just note what an astonishing thing it was for me, last Wednesday. Of course I felt humbled …
