    Quitting your day job. It's something most Lady Startups will have to do... eventually.  Our guest today, Alana had actually tried to quit her fulltime job and it didn't work. Soon after quitting she got a job offer for a gig that sounded too good to be true and went straight back to her corporate life in pharmaceuticals. But this time, she didn't love it.  So finally after years of brainstorming she made the leap and founded Eye Heart Science, a fast growing science education business based in Sydney. Today, Eye Heart Science is in 40 schools and Alana has a team behind her bringing fun science based classes to kids across greater Sydney.  So what I want to know is, how did she go about creating an education based business?  and and how did she upscale her business, when in the beginning it was just her teaching science to kids after school?  THE END BITS  Tell us what you think about Lady Startup Stories via our survey and you could go in the running to win one of six $100 Gift Vouchers!

So she launched Chrissy's Cuts, opened a restaurant called the sausage factory and started brewing beer to accompany her quality snags.

    Allira Potter isn't your regular Lady Startup.  If Allira had to describe her work she would say, that she is an intuitive, a creator, writer, speaker, a model, an empowerment and mindset coach, manifesting queen, baby witch and an all-around spiritual sister.  But Allira's life over 18 months ago looked nothing like this.  She was newly divorced, working a corporate job, living pay check to pay check and had turned to partying as a coping mechanism.  But then in early 2020 after a four-day bender, she realised something needed to give. So as the world went into lockdown Allira went on a detox and turned to her spiritual side.  Turns out Allira's newly rejuvenated witchy side was actually something she could make a career out of, so now she works for herself.  So how has Allira developed such a unique business, one without a rule book? And how has she developed a six-figure business in such a short space of time?  THE END BITS  You can keep up with Allira on her Instagram or online!

    JSHealth Vitamins are one of the best selling vitamins ranges in Australia. But getting to this point was not easy.  When Jessica Sepel was fourteen she developed an unhealthy obsession with nutrition and fad dieting. This ultimately lead her to study health science at University, so she could learn as much as she could about fad dieting.  But then through her studies, she had a breakthrough. Instead of channelling her knowledge into unhealthy practices, she put it back into her work. Jess became a nutritionist, started a blog, wrote three books and eventually developed a fitness program and an app. Jess had finally made enough money to invest in a big project, JSHealth Vitamins. Today Jess's business has an estimated worth of $426 million. So how has Jess built such a successful business in such a short space of time?

    Jessica Nguyen was killing it in the beauty world. She had climbed the ranks and was working at some of the top companies. Then in 2020, she got made redundant.  Jessica was forced to reevaluate everything. So instead of waiting around for a new job, she took a step back and thought to herself: 'Maybe this is the perfect time to try something new' So when the world started closing up and people across the nation turned to baking sourdough, Jess saw a gap in the market. The long-time home cook jumped into the kitchen and started sharing her recipes on Instagram.  Just 18 months on, Jess has managed to convert a modest following of a couple thousand into almost 80,000 followers. While building a career for herself that turns over a profit and allows her to do what she loves, sharing the joy of food.  So how has Jess built a business for herself so quickly? And how did she convert a long time passion into a full-fledged and profitable business?

Right now you might be questioning whether your product or service is actually good enough. Maybe it’s not what people are looking for? Maybe no one will ever be willing to pay for it?  Chances are it is good enough, there are people looking for it and those people will absolutely be willing to pay for it.  So what’s missing? You’re not nurturing your customers.  In this episode, we look at how you can turn followers into paying customers. We discuss… Methods that you can start using today to support your customers more. Learning about the impact something as simple as a birthday discount can have on the perception of your business. How to make your customers and feel like valued friends and how this strategy can lead to free promo for your business.
