Whether you follow astrology, opinion polls, gurus or the news, it’s well documented that 2018 is going to be a big year of change – or as I like to think of it – emerging from the shadow of doubt to our day in the sun with passion, purpose and…profit!
In our second issue of Woman Rising magazine, we’re focused on The New Normal – Women Supporting Women and who better to feature in this celebratory issue than the Regional Entrepreneur Dianna Somerville.
Dianna is a powerhouse helping to facilitate opportunities for regional business owners across the country via the Australia Post Regional Pitchfest, a Shark Tank-type event that allows business owners and entrepreneurs time to pitch their ideas on a stage in front of an expert panel for a share of $10,000.
From one small idea to bridge a gap for her counterparts in Wagga Wagga, the Australia Post Regional Pitchfest has grown significantly in less than a few years with more than 60 events.
The theme continues with several Q&As with women creating thriving businesses from home all in an effort to support other women achieve their dreams and redefine success. We chat to Anna and Flori of Business School For Mums and Nicole Ward of The Mama Sorority. Their insights and words of wisdom will hopefully keep you going in those long dark days.
The issue is packed with powerful contributions including; ‘How To Set Your Year On Fire‘ by Women of Achievement Founder Kylie Bartlett; ‘The Year Of Achievement‘ by The Mothers Den Founder Uldouz Van Eenoo and if 2018 is the year to finally starting writing your book, Editor and Publishing expert Natasha Gilmour has delivered a very practical article ‘How To Start Your Book‘ showing you step by step how to take the thoughts from your head to paper so the process is not as overwhelming as it appears at the outset and empowers you to finally get words on a page. Love that!
Of course, we still have your favourite columns including Five To Thrive and A Few Of Our Favourite Things.
I hope you enjoy the first issue of the year, coming out on Friday 19 January.
