Editorial: At Home

My life is about to change. Anticipating the arrival of our new kid has seen us reflect on the state of our current lives.
We wanted to do a photoshoot to capture this special time – but not in a styled, Pinterest-worthy way. We wanted to capture what our lives really look like right now.

Editorial: By The Sea

By The Sea - Editorial Monika Berry We met on the windy coast of Victoria. The rugged coastline inspires so much creativity.  We climbed, swam and navigated our way through rock pools. There was no specific brief or "must-have" shots, just free-flowing creativity,...

Eliza and Viva – Partos + Pike

Meeting Eliza and Viva from Partos and Pike is like meeting Monika and myself in flesh. It’s unnerving how similar we are. Eliza is much like myself: the organised, process driven one with an eye for clarity. Viva and Mon are our counterparts - the creative geniuses...

Why and when should I speak to an accountant?

Why and when should I speak to an accountant?

By Tahlia Sinnott.
So, you have a great business idea but have no experience in operating a business. Where do you turn to next? An accountant. But why?
At this point, an accountant can provide you with a constructive evaluation of your business idea. They act as an independent reviewer of the business idea – they take the emotion out of it.

When is it the right time to hire help?

A worrying trend I see online and in support groups is asking our colleagues for business advice. More often than not, the person giving the advice hasn’t even worked it out for themselves. In a Facebook group, a lady shared this comment..

Do I need to rebrand?

When I did a google search on rebranding, every single article was all about rebranding companies. Companies. There’s not much information about rebranding for micro-businesses, small business or creatives.

How can I make my market stall stand out?

How do I make my market stall stand out?   You may be thinking about applying to hold a stall at the next big market. Markets are generally predictable - the same type of products, showcased the same way. But you don’t want to be like that! There are three key goals...

O’Design – Brad Ottens

Down to earth and kind-hearted are words that come to mind when we think of the Ottens.  I brought my daughter Emily along for the interview which was held at the Ottens home, situated on a quiet corner of the Bellarine. Upon a short trip down a dirt road, we were...

Justin Colquhoun- Elite Horsemanship

There’s one thing clear from attending Justin’s horsemanship clinic: the ladies love him.
Brooke, Justin’s wife, thinks it’s hilarious.
“I’m biased but he is a charmer without even trying”
That he is. Justin has this magnetic aura that draws people in. He’s got a heart bigger than Phar Lap with a smile to rival Steve Tyler. Add in his bright red hair hidden discreetly under his trademark cowboys hat and his charm is legendary. Everyone who attends his clinics, men too, are instantly drawn to his incredible likeability. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t instantly connect with Justin.
