Lynne chats with Hayley Lowe

Back in 2022, I chatted with Hayley Lowe about how her business transitioned from Graphic Designer to Modern Day Mystic.  The leaps she made by focusing on her personal brand and the lessons she learn as a woman in business.  Hayley is raw and candid about the challenges she faced, and how she drove her business on everyone else's expectations.  (How things have changed) Answering emails whilst in labour is certainly not what was recommended and by listening to our chat, there are...

Love what you do

It reminded me of the importance of loving what you do!  For us it more than a tagline - it is a way of life.  Confucius was believed to have said "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,"   I am certainly not saying that I love what I do everyday or somedays to be exact I don't want to be working in my business.  For those days I have learnt to listen to my mind and take some time out to enjoy what I like doing.  Or if it is an ad...
