This special edition was recorded live at Donkey Wheel House in Melbourne on Tuesday 15 August 2017, in front of a live audience of 50 women as part of the women in business week of the Victorian Small Business Festival.

Based on my book ‘The Leap Stories’, this event featured a panel of women who had taken the leap in their careers to start their own businesses who were keen to share their experiences and insights.

MCed by Tess McCabe, publisher & founder of Creative Minds Publishing and hosted by Kylie Lewis, founder, Of Kin on the panel were Emma Kate Codrington of Emma Kate Co., Kate Vandermeer of The Super Cool and Madeleine Dore of Extraordinary Routines.

This episode is great for anyone considering starting their own business, side gig or would like to be a bit braver in their working life. We give an insiders guide on what you need to consider, how to get yourself organised and put together the building blocks for moving forward.

This is the full recording of the whole evening, and you may like to jump ahead. Around the 8 minute mark is the introduction of our guest speakers. Around the 11 minute mark is the start of the panel discussion. And around the 65 minute mark is the start of the audience Q & A.

I hope you enjoy this special episode, and if you’d like to purchase your own copy of The Leap Stories book, please visit
