I’m a serial entrepreneur. I started 16 businesses before founding Caradvice.com.au, which I recently sold for $35M to Nine Entertainment. I initially started CarAdvice as a blog and in ten years grew it into a nationwide car advice, review and news site, employing 40 people and turning over $15M a year. We’ve built CarAdvice through creating genius content that people want to watch and share, owning SEO and selling targeted advertising on the site. I’m interested in providing advice to businesses and startups, but be warned – I’m very honest, and won’t hold back from telling you my honest opinion.

Forbes 30 under 30, Telstra Young Business Women's Award 2017 In 2012, I launched OneShift on the back of a free blog, some posters, duck tap and an ipad. After the first month of it being live, it had 300 university students and several clubs using it. Within 6 months OneShift had over 10k users. OneShift received an investment of $5 million for 27.5% equity from Programmed (ASX: PRG) and who subsequently purchased it in 2016. More recently, I've launched Skilld.com, a dynamic online marketplace that instantly connects local talent to local businesses and also tamme.io an analytics and advertising platform for marketplaces. I'm heavily involved in the start-up and business community in Australia.

I also work with City and State Government to increase awareness of start-ups, and to connect corporate companies for mentoring and investing initiatives with the wider aim to help Australian start-ups to think and grow globally. This is achieved through partnerships with Boston Consulting Group, Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA) and I was recently named the youngest Sydney Chair for the Young Presidents Org (YPO).
