Behind the Business Blinds is for business owners who want to hear stories from their favourite entrepreneurs about how they got to where they are today. We get real and honest about the challenges they've faced, the lessons they've learnt and the big achievements they've accomplished. We talk about the whole journey, not just the highlight reel that we see on social media.

Emily Pruitt | Wellness Mentor & Community Champion
Emily Pruitt is the founder of SoleFire Wellness, a business focused on supporting women to achieve their personal and business goals through the importance of wellbeing and self-awareness.
She is also the Community Champion at The Founders Team! I hired Emily just over a year ago to help facilitate masterminds and support our members through the ups and downs of owning a business.
I asked Emily to do this interview because I thought it might be interesting to hear from an employee perspective of why she chose to apply for the job and what she loves about her role at The Founders Team, as well as how she juggles that alongside her biz.
Brooke Vulinovich | Social Club Membership
Brooke Vulinovich is an Instagram specialist, international keynote speaker, and creator of the global Social Club Membership and Academy.
Brooke's journey from employment to business owner was not a clear path, and she has pivoted to exactly what her audience and clients want to build her Social Club community and highly successful business. Like any business owner, there have been ups, downs and plenty of in-between moments. But Brooke has been a leader in business with integrity and innovation being values that have led to fast and furious success.
We chat about how Brooke accidentally started the Social Club, her journey through growing her business to an international brand, how she’s grown her personal brand too, what she did when she lost half her members due to the initial covid freak out everyone had and now, how she’s managing being a new Mum to Karlo (who features in this episode) as well as a business owner.

Are you taking proactive rest?
Taking proactive rest allows us to show up as our best selves for our clients and our personal relationships.
So why do we always push ourselves, prioritise everyone else before us, and think that pushing through our tiredness and exhaustion is something to be proud of?
Proactive rest needs to happen, but it needs to happen your way. And this is what I chat about in this episode.
Send me a DM on Instagram @leanne_webber to let me know how you're going to take proactive rest.
