Founder, Healthy Numbers
I’m a total sponge and I'm here to help you become a total sponge as well.
If you are going to run a business of your own it's time to start soaking up as much information as possible - listen to podcasts, read articles, books, find people who have done what you want to do and study how they have created success for themselves.
That's what I did when I started out. In 2003 when I started my business there wasn't much information around for people starting their own business. Most of us had to figure it out for ourselves.
I've always been a sponge and I looked around at how other people ran their businesses. I copied what I thought seemed to work and I gradually developed my own way to be in business.
Fast forward and now I work mostly with health, fitness and well-being professionals to create, start and grow their own business. The people I help are extremely dedicated and passionate about their chosen health profession and just need some help with the business side of things.
Over time I have developed a simple methodology to help you get started without the overwhelm!
Many years ago when I was working in a terrific corporate role I had this thought I could also be a massage therapist. I enrolled in a course, which I loved, bought the most beautiful top quality, custom made purple leather massage table, luxurious white towels, wonderful candles and converted my front bedroom into a peaceful massage space. My friends thought it was great and then reality struck, how would I find clients? Was this a passion, a project, or a hobby? How would this be a business? A good friend said to me “Starting a business is a serious decision, are you sure about this?”
My biggest dose of reality came when we started practical clinic and I discovered that massaging people I didn’t know was very different to massaging people I did know. The magic of massage evaporated. I feel like that was my lucky escape. I have always been grateful to my good friend helping me to make a good decision about my future. I see this as my role for you. Help you make a good decision about your dream business.
My methods and style have proven to be successful in a broad range of professions including Pilates studios, yoga studios, personal trainers, dance schools, physiotherapists, chiropractors, and acupuncture clinics. I’ve also developed a high level of expertise in working with dental practices.
