    How to address stress in the current economy

    Joining me on today’s show is Natasha Lie,

    Natasha is one of two Directors at LG Accounting Solutions –an accounting firm that specializes in working with small and medium businesses with systems and cash flow.

    Before she was running an accounting business, she was a farmer’s daughter growing up in New Norcia.

    Growing up as a farmer’s daughter you think you have two options in life: be a housewife or become a farmer.

    When she moved to boarding school, she learned there were more options in life, and she became an accountant. She realized she had a passion for supporting business owners and inspiring their success, which is what I do now at LGAS.



    On today’s show, Natasha will share:



    * No matter how limited you perceive your options to be, particularly early in life, there are more options for what to do in life out there than you are imagining.

    * No matter your industry, no matter the problem you are trying to solve for someone, you must learn how to be a great listener.

    * Business owners are often stressed, particularly in the current economy, and she has guided some through really high-pressure situation and will share some insights to help you if you’re currently feeling stress and pressure in your business.

     Become the voice in your industry through book publishing

    My guest today says:

    Establishing yourself as a voice in your industry through book publishing is one of the powerful tools women can use to gain credibility, respect and a voice at the table. In fact, it may be one of the most powerful steps towards a better balance in Australia’s boardrooms and management in what are considered ‘male-dominated’ industries.

    Joining me on today's show is Bev Ryan.

    On today’s show, Bev will share:



    * How establishing yourself as a voice in your industry through book publishing is one of the most powerful tools women can use to gain credibility, respect and a voice at the table.

    * The confidence to see themselves as an author, and gain clarity about what book they could publish and for whom.

    * Learn that the publishing process is logical and has a timeline, and understand that they can do it, even if they don’t yet know how.

    How to Create a Business from Less than Ideal Circumstances

    Joining me on today’s show is Lisa Burling.

    Lisa is a journalist, PR professional, entrepreneur, businesswoman and author.

    In 2013, a chain of devastating events resulted in her being an unemployed, single mum of two boys under three. Whilst in the Centrelink queue wondering how this was her reality, she decided to set up a PR consultancy, LBPR. Most people thought she was crazy.

    Fast forward four years later, and LBPR is currently the Public Relations Institute of Australia’s Small PR Consultancy of the Year. She has also created Catalyst, Australia’s first student-run consultancy, enabling charities access to pro bono PR, and students access to real world experience.

    She is an author of her first book Dream A Little Dream, which is all about the power of little dreams to change your life fast.

    She’s also a proud Ambassador for Inspiring Rare Birds and The AusMumpreneur Network, and a former Businesswoman of the Year in my home city of Wollongong.



    On today’s show, Lisa will share:



    * How you can create a successful business from less than ideal circumstances.



    * Excuses are just our mind’s way of talking us out of an amazing future! Her life over the last four years is social proof of this.





    * How Dreaming little is the secret to creating a life you love, in business and personally, fast.

    * How her student-run consultancy – Catalyst is disrupting the PR industry
