I want to acknowledge those on the Lifting the Lid On Quiet Achievers journey over the past 2 years, as the Young Achievers Giveaway is about to launch… All incredibly inspiring people of determination, courage and heart. In the book the following people are featured –
Colin Beasley – Thurla Farms.
Robin Strang – The Two MadHatters
Ellen Bathgate – The Renting Experts (previously Rouge Beauty)
Roger Fletcher – Fletcher International Exports
Bronwyn Waterhouse – Women of Excellence (Mary Kay)
Jacqui Greig – Style Magazine
James Taylor – Inline Engineering
Mark Crutcher – Crutchers IGA
Mary Brell – Keys To Success
Pam Hardgrave – Lillydale Farmstay
Nathan Shooter – Thrive Media
and bonus interviews with Natalie Bramble – NB Management, Adrian Capra – Art of Espresso, Kim Goldsmith – Ochre Communications, Barry Brebner – Workabout Australia
Each contributor shared insightful ideas, tips and wisdom as they bravely shared their story and their thoughts continue to inspire our readers across Australia and many countries around the world.
Others I’d like to acknowledge have shared the journey in various ways.
David Pankhurst owns our local bookstore, The Book Connection. He supported us with a launch event with Mark Coulton, Federal MP, (pictured) and has included me in a Local Authors Week and in his catalogue that goes far and wide – and he keeps stock of the book in the front of his store.
Leanne Berry surprised me with a nomination for the Telstra Business Women’s Awards – I didn’t know Leanne at the time, but have since come to know and love her. Leanne is a champion of regional entrepreneurs and teaches book-keepers across Australia through her business The Numbers Game. She’s also sold multiple copies of Lifting the Lid at Conferences due to her passion for the subject and inspiring her clients!
Penny Taylor put an amazing effort into a gorgeous book launch event in Port Hedland and introduced me to business leaders there where I hosted workshops with Denise Bevins at the Small Business Centre. These girls have helped me do several trips to Port Hedland, where I’ve fallen in love with the land and the people :-)
There are many more who’ve cheered us all on as we’ve shared our stories and hoped they’d help someone, somewhere to glean ideas, inspiration and encouragement and I’m so grateful to all.
The joy of sharing inspiration continues with the Young Achievers Giveaway. Check out how you can inspire, connect and cheer on Young Achievers here.
Thank you for sharing the journey.
Cheering you on,
