She’s THE Boss Chats is a regular program featuring in-depth interviews with amazing, inspiring female founders and women who run their own businesses. There is one woman per episode and all of them are doing extraordinary things!
In each episode, Jules Brooke chats with these business women about their entrepreneurial journey; from when they left school to where they are now (often a very wiggly path!), what their ‘lightbulb’ moment was, the women that have inspired them along the way and what they have learned from their experiences. You'll love the She's THE Boss program if you enjoy listening to interviews filled with lots of laughs, great stories and oodles of advice and lessons learned from life's journies.
This series of interviews is an extended version of the popular TV show on Ticker TV (tickertv.com.au) where Jules interviews all sorts of interesting and inspiring women every week. Jules is also the founder of Handle Your Own PR (handleyourownpr.com.au) where she teaches business owners, authors and experts how to get featured in the media for free and has developed a unique PR Engine. Handle Your Own PR also offers online coaching and accelerator courses.
Jessica Hickman - Founder of Bullyology
My latest She's The Boss Chats episode is with the inspiring Jessica Hickman - Founder of Bullyology
Jessica is woman on a mission to stop workplace bullying, and for a very good reason. After arriving in Australia in her early 20's as a backpacker from Wales, she was thrilled when she was offered a role in HR for a massive oil and mining company. The job was based out of Darwin and promoised to offer her loads of opportunities to make a change. But then she came into contact with a toxic male manager and everything changed for the worse. Much worse.
Fabiola Campbell - Founder, Professional Migrant Women Mentoring Program
My latest She's The Boss Chats episode is with Fabiola Campbell - Founder, Professional Migrant Women Mentoring Program.
Fabiola is the Founder of the Professional Migrant Women's Mentoring Program, which she set up after spending years trying to get a job after arriving here from Venezula (even though she was born here and has an Australian passport). Fabiola's story is one that will get you thinking. She was born here when her father, a surgeon, was sent here to learn how to do kidney transplants (Melbourne was the best in the world at the time), and she grew up with her father fondly remembering his time here and teasing her about being an 'Aussie'. So it's hardly surprising that she decided to move here for a better life, in her late 20's.
Chrissie Davies - Behavioural expert for children and Founder of From Chaos to Calm
My latest She's The Boss Chats episode is with Chrissie Davies - Behavioural expert for children and Founder of From Chaos to Calm. Chrissie is an educator, consultant, writer, loving mama via an open adoption, and passionate advocate for understanding children with challenging behaviours. She is committed to empowering and supporting families to live the life they truly deserve. Chrissie is a force to be reckoned with. Her love for children is evident and her consulting practice, From Chaos To Calm works closely with the parents to offer strategies to help them manage their child, and is highly regarded and sought after. Chrissie's career has taken her from regional Victoria to London and back, learning all about the best educational practices for children. When she returned to Australia after working with disadvantaged children in London in a wonderful school, fired up her enthusiasm to work in a similar environment here. And she found one!
Belinda Jennings, Founder and CEO of Mum Central
She's the BOSS Chats episode with Jules Brooke https://www.shestheboss.com.au/chats
Belinda Jennings is the Founder of Mum Central, a community with over 800,000 Australian Mums. How she started the business and grew the community is a fascinating story. Belinda started off her entrepreneurial career by jumping into her parents' luxury houseboat business to take on the marketing, build a website (back when the internet was a baby) and handle the growth of the business from one to a fleet of boats! After her first baby was born, she decided to put her secondhand baby stuff up for sale online, and so her journey began.
Jenn Donovan - Social media and marketing coach, speaker and Founder of a Facebook group with over 270,000 members
Another great She's the BOSS Chats episode with Jules Brooke.
Jenn is an absolute sweetheart! After growing up, and living in rural Australia for most of her life, she has had a very entrepreneurial career culminating in the ridiculously fast growth of her Facebook Group, Buy From a Bush Business, which at the time of our interview had over 272,000 followers after just 8 months! But it all started with a law degree and a conveyancing business in her 20's. Then, one late night after a few too many drinks with her bestie, she and Jenn decided to open a shop. Best friends since they were 14, they had always said they would find a way to work together, and this was it!
Amy Bastow - Founder of The Virtual Piano Academy, composer and musician
My latest She's The Boss Chats episode is with the amazing Amy Bastow (Jorgensen), composer and the Founder of the Virtual Piano Academy.
It's not often you come across a creative musician who also has a huge entrepreneurial appetite. Amy is a fabulous surprise! After being brought up by her incredibly supportive mum and Grandmother in a tiny outback NSW town, Amy was inspired to get into music, and in fact spent her teenage years in her family's band, playing on weekends. The piano was her first love and she learned as much as she possibly could from the local piano player which her Mum organised for her in exchange cleaning her house. A sacrifice that has totally paid off!
