Hi, thanks for visiting our site!
I’m guessing you’re here because you’ve got a business your passionate about although need help taking it to the next level.
Well, you’re in the right place as that’s exactly why we are here. I’m really passionate about helping small business owners succeed. I know how hard it can be to start and run your own business and I’m really excited to help make your dream a reality.
The reality is so many small businesses owners are AMAZING at what they do, that’s why they have a business but they never realised they had to become a marketing guru to succeed. That’s why we’re here. We want to help you show the world how amazing you are and be SEEN online.
Let me share a bit about me, here’s my story.
Myself and Cam have always had a vision of having our own business and travelling the world. We wanted “time freedom” to do the things we love. We both started in your traditional jobs. I came from working in Sales & Marketing and then working as an International flight attendant and Cam worked in the Police Force and Customs. We both had very “cushy” jobs but it wasn’t what we wanted forever.
In 2008 I began my first business. www.getactiveonline.com/ which was born out of a simple blog and a passion for fitness and helping others. I still remember the day I sold my first online program. I received the email from paypal letting me know someone had paid and I was so excited.
I couldn’t believe my passion for fitness and helping others had led to making money online. It was fantastic!
I continued to run Get Active Online while flying for over 10 years. I took my laptop with me everywhere and any opportunity I had, wherever I was I was busy on my laptop growing my dream. Always in the back of my mind knowing that I wasn’t going to fly forever and this is what I wanted to do full time. Then in February 2014 things changed, the Cabin Crew base in Cairns was closing down. It was a devastating time for so many but for me it was that final push I needed to finally jump into being a full-time business owner.
I had no idea what I was in for!!!
I had 8 weeks before I was redundant to create a full time income for myself. I worked my butt off, literally, to get my Personal Training studio set up and ramp up my Online Personal Training. It was here I enlisted my first business coach. I enrolled in a fast track program which went for 2 months. It was fantastic and gave me some great systems and tools to get things going. Within the first 3 months I’d hit my targets and was making a good income.
Then just six months later we were faced with another decision. Cam’s job was no longer going to exist in Cairns and we had the choice to move or Cam to leave his job. We decided it was time to go “all in” and follow our dream.
So we did it!!! Both of us working full time in our Fitness Business. We increased the services we offered and it was all going really well, although we really wanted to take it to the next level. It was at this point we jumped into another business coaching program. We spent over $30,000 on coaching and it was the BIGGEST mistake we made, but geez have we learnt from it and that’s how the Digital Marketing Hub was born.
During our business coaching we lost sight of our vision. MISTAKE NUMBER 1!. We were told all businesses were the same and To just “follow the program”. We were turning over good revenue but we were working crazy hours and most of the extra revenue was paying the additional staff we took on as we grew. I wasn’t enjoying it. I felt like I had just created a really crappy job for myself.
It was at the same time our son was diagnosed with Aspergers. This was a serious kick up the butt. Our lives WERE CRAZY. We were trying to do all of this to create a nice lifestyle and the opposite was happening. Our son needed routine and we had this out of control lifestyle, working crazy hours.
I knew things had to change. At this point we took a big step back and had a big think about what was REALLY important to us. Why were we in business?
We had to become objective on what was working and what wasn’t.
We made some tough decisions. We kept elements of the business that were working really well and got the business back to where WE wanted it to be.
I started studying everything I could about Digital Marketing and learning how to be competitive online. I could finally see that it was possible to have a business you LOVED without being a slave to your business.
That’s what I’m passionate about helping other small businesses achieve. I love seeing businesses grow! Implementing systems and technologies to make your life easier. I get excited about funnels, messenger bots and automation! (yeah, I know I might be a bit odd, ha, ha)
I want you to have the TIME FREEDOM to do the things you love!
Would love to have a chat, costs you nothing and don’t worry I’m definitely not the “hard” sales type.
