Once upon a time, Jemimah Ashleigh and Shevonne Joyce each started a business and talked almost every day about the REAL of doing so... They laughed, cried, had a few WHAT THE BLEEP moments, Liam Hemsworth got a mention somewhere and then it dawned on them: THIS IS A THING. The Business Experiment Podcast was born. As the name suggests, it's an experiment involving two entrepreneurs and a cat who decided it was time someone got real about what it's like to run a business for the first time; the good, the bad, the ugly. This is designed to document their personal experiences to inspire you, motivate you and maybe mildly entertain you. The best part is, we have no idea how this will turn out: we have never recorded a podcast before... What better time to start than now?!

    **Content warning: this podcast contains explicit language and adult themes. It is not suitable for children.**

    That's right, Experimenters. This is not a drill. Tracey Spicer was in the lab. The Tracey Spicer.

    Tracey is a woman of many talents - an author, journalist and broadcaster who has anchored programs across many well respected television stations. She's also written, produced and presented documentaries and is an ambassador for many worthwhile causes. In addition to that, she's a columnist for Fairfax, a trainer in the Outspoken Women program and media trainer at Spicer Communications.

    Her first book, The Good Girl Stripped Bare, became a bestseller within weeks of publication in April 2017. She's an all round legend who is creating real change in this world.

    Tracey not only shares the real of her journey navigating the world of media and television as a woman but also to strip bare the deeply entrenched layers of discrimination against women that has held them back in business and life for far too long. We'll get realer than real about how she overcame barriers to mentor, inspire and lead women to the successes they are capable of being. 

    This conversation will blow your socks off. It has been an honour chatting with her about how we change the world.

    The Business Experiment - How to Business through Big Life Bleeps - Episode 48

    We've spoken before about how to survive business when business sucks, but what about big life events (termed 'bleeps')? How do you get through when you're personally struggling? Perhaps someone you love has passed away, maybe you're dealing with a terminal illness, miscarriage or a relationship break up? This also includes other beautiful events that are not so much bleeps, but take a lot of adjustment, like having a baby and trying to navigate all the sleepless nights et al that comes along with your precious little mini.

    What happens to business when life bleeps or you feel bleep?

    The girls get up close and personal about a few life bleeps they've experienced recently and talk about what business is really like during these times. They share suggestions for how to get through and keep on bossing when bossing is hard. Tune in to hear more.

    The Business Experiment - The Female Economy with Femeconomy - Episode 46

    The Business Experiment - The Female Economy with Femeconomy - Episode 46

    Welcome to Femeconomy. This is where we achieve gender equality through women's purse power in a way that benefits both men and women. 

    The story starts when Jade was in a Melbourne Taxi on a work trip and read that women make 85% of purchasing decisions. She was immediately obsessed with this statistic and realised that this could be the perfect economic lever to advance gender equality. She floated the idea past her sister-in-law, Alanna, and the rest is history - Femeconomy.com was born.

    Femeconomy is the perfect place for women to shop their 85% with female lead brands and in one short year have reached over 380,000 people with a never ending list of awards spanning tech, retail, business and consumer markets.

    Jade and Alanna both chucked their corporate jobs in pursuit of using purse power to advance gender equality. They've achieved a mighty lot in a short space of time. We decided to get them in the studio to discuss the REAL of their journey and the impact it's having on the advancement of gender equality around the world. This is an unmissable episode for both men and women alike about the benefits of true equality in business and life.

These girls rock!

I absolutely love listening to Jemimah and Shevonne. These girls are super inspiring and down to earth. They are not afraid to tell it how it is and I look forward to their podcasts to hear what they have been up to and also to listen to their inspiring guests. Keep up the awesome work - you girls rock!

The podcast that got me into podcasts

I'm so glad I found the business experiment! I love how the girls include us in their ups and downs and I've got so many great tips. Interacting and learning from people going through the same things I am is so incredibly valuable. There's no filter here, just #thebusinessreal and I love it!

Like? No, LOVE!

I have been an avid listener since the first episode aired and I love how it has grown and how Shev and Jem have really stayed true to the core of the Business Real - by being upfront, honest, and sharing the yuck times and tackling the tough stuff. It's been immensely helpful to me to not feel so isolated in my own business journey to know others are having a similar experience. I look forward to new episodes every fortnight!!
