Powerful Stories with Tory Archbold
Starting a business at 43 with Melissa Trafford-Jones

I have known today's Powerful Stories podcast guest since I was a teenager, so I am particularly excited to share her wonderful story with the Powerful Steps podcast community. Melissa Trafford-Jones (or the Sustainable Queen of Diamonds, as she is now known!) launched her incredible sustainable diamond business, Deltora Diamonds, in 2021. She has since blown me and everyone else away with its astonishing growth in a very short time.    A mother of four boys, Melissa bravely launched her business – and in doing so, forged a brand-new market in Australia – in her forties. I believe that we shouldn't tick boxes, we should make new ones – and Mel is a shining example of someone who stepped outside the box others wanted to place her in, and forged her own incredible path in life and business.    A couple of years ago, Melissa was blessed in many ways, yet despite this, she wasn't wholly satisfied in her life. She knew that the time had come when she needed to make a change. She felt so stuck, to the point that she wasn't sleeping at night, but Melissa had to overcome a lot of fear before she was ready to take the leap. And leap she did!   In this podcast episode, Melissa Trafford-Jones talks about how happy she is that she finally managed to dig deep and found the inner courage to go out on her own, on her own terms.   In less than a year since launching her brand in April 2021, this inspirational entrepreneur has been featured in the AFR, Sydney Morning Herald and more, and business couldn't be going better.     Melissa has boldly created a new category with her lab diamonds that are sustainable, ethical and affordable – and through trust, connection and loyalty, she has shown people that there is in fact another way to buy diamonds.    She is so passionate about what she does, and truly loves that her work involves making people happy at the most exciting times in their lives. I'm so happy and excited for Melissa, who is a true heart-led warrior in business and in life, driving a new category while doing it all from the heart.     Topics Discussed   [1:51] Melissa's first career aspiration was in fact to become a popstar – and after changing tack and applying to study architecture just like her father, she eventually struck out beyond the boxes others wanted to place her in.    [3:08] Melissa talks us through her varied career journey, sharing that stints in advertising, marketing, and management have all been important building blocks that today gift her with a valuable, well-rounded knowledge base in her current business.   [4:11] Mentors have been an important part of Melissa's career journey, and she credits her success partly with surrounding herself with people who inspire her.   [5:09] Melissa started her business, Deltora Diamonds, last year at the age of 43. Despite feeling the pull to go out on her own so strongly that she couldn't sleep at night, it took a lot of strength to make the leap in her 40s (and launching into a new market, no less!).        [5:44] She reveals that finding the inner courage to launch in a very new market came about largely through making herself more knowledgeable than everyone else; and surrounding herself with the right people.     [7:06] Melissa shares the story of how selling a $7000 emerald necklace to her first online customer made her realise the power of what she had created.   [8:05] We discuss the incredible growth trajectory that has seen the Deltora Diamonds business almost double month-on-month, and open studios across three cities since April 2021.    [8:36] Melissa discusses the exciting process of building a brand-new category with lab diamonds, and the importance of educating consumers to build trust.   [11:14] Melissa shares some insights into the current trends in the diamond market, including recommendations around popular investment pieces to celebrate milestones, and the rise of coloured sustainable sapphires.   [15:35] She opens up about how juggling her sustainable lab diamond business with mothering four boys can be challenging at times, but she makes it work thanks to her very supportive husband and the mutual respect the couple have for each other's busy careers.   [17:20] Melissa's focus is on growing smart, not fast. She says that having the right people around her who she trusts; and listening to her instinct, are central to her success as an inspirational entrepreneur.   [17:57] Melissa's next powerful step will feature exciting ventures, including partnering Deltora Diamonds with fashion labels to integrate her sustainable lab diamonds into their lines.        Links   Where to find Melissa Trafford-Jones Want to know more about this truly inspirational entrepreneur?   Deltora Diamonds: deltoradiamonds.com Instagram: @deltoradiamonds LinkedIn: Melissa Trafford-Jones   Where to Find Tory Archbold Are you ready to take a powerful step forward in business and in life?

Lisa Wilkinson has offered to not engage in any further commentary on Brittany Higgins or the man accused of raping her, avoiding an injunction order after her Logies acceptance speech delayed the trial.Bruce Lehrmann has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting Ms Higgins inside Parliament House in 2019. He was due to stand trial in the ACT Supreme Court next week.ACT Chief Justice Lucy McCallum told the court she had “robbed Peter to pay Paul” to ensure the trial would go ahead this year, listing October 4 as the new court date.Defence barrister Steven Whybrow had asked the court to hold off until the beginning of next year, raising concern the “bushfire” of publicity would still be burning in October.“We would like there to be no further issues and delays,” he told the court, adding he had availability issues within the time frame named.However, Justice McCallum said she was confident the media coverage of Ms Wilkinson's speech would dampen by October.“The publicity this week has focused sharply on the very fact that was being overlooked, that is a man is facing trial for a serious offence, and that he is entitled to the presumption of innocence,” Justice McCallum said.She proposed to list the matter for four weeks, pushing back against suggestions it would take that longer.“I can't see how a trial involving a single incident, with a single complainant, could possibly take six weeks,” Justice McCallum said.“I've conducted complex murder trials in less than that.”Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold revealed he had received a letter from Network Ten and Ms Wilkinson offering to take an undertaking to the ACT Supreme Court not to engage in any further commentary on Ms Higgins or the accused.“That letter is useful,” he told the court.Similar undertakings had also been sought from Australian Radio Network, which broadcasts Amanda and Jonsey on WSFM.“The drafting of those undertakings are very specific. They make reference to commentary surrounding the allegation, including commentary on the complainants and accused,” Mr Drumgold said.It also included acknowledgment that further interferences could result in being in contempt of court.But at this stage, Mr Drumgold said there were no grounds for him to seek an injunction against Ms Wilkinson, Amanda Kelleher and Brendan Jones.The chief justice said injunctions could be sought through the court if the media outlets were not forthcoming.Mr Drumgold said he had undertaken to request a number of authors including news.com.au‘s Samantha Maiden, The Sydney Morning Herald's Niki Savva and Channel 10's Peter van Onselen not to publish books that may touch on the matters before the trial before it has concluded.Mr Whybrow raised concerns over a new book that touches on the matter that was published last week that canvasses the issue before the court as to whether the publisher is prepared to voluntarily withdraw the book.The discussion around workplace culture at Parliament House could also be an issue moving forward, Justice McCallum flagged.“If the issue is the treatment of an allegation, it is very difficult to have that debate without commenting on inappropriate treatment on the assumed premise the allegation is true,” she said.“It would be a pretty thin book if you took out everything that is sub judice, that is, everything that is before this court.”Earlier this week, she said her decision to delay the trial was made “through gritted teeth”, warning the line between allegation and a finding of guilt had been “obliterated”.Ms Wilkinson is expected to be called as a witness when the trial begins.- by Courtney Gould, news.com.au

Earlier this week, actor Rebel Wilson found herself being forced into making a choice: come out to the world and publicly state that she is in a relationship with fashion designer Ramona Agruma, or face being "outed" by a gossip columnist. Rebel's choice to announce her relationship on her own terms was widely applauded, as many felt it was unfair that she'd been forced to disclose who she was dating to begin with, and wondered why is a woman dating another woman considered headline news in 2022?

The House of Commons is going to become a 'menopause-friendly' employer. Speaker of the Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle said after he signed a Menopause Workplace Pledge yesterday, that he hopes to "break the taboo" around the menopause. Practical adjustments could be included in Westminster, such as well-ventilated rooms and fans, flexible working and breathable uniforms. But will a pledge in Parliament have any impact of the lives of women across the UK? Journalist and author of Cracking The Menopause, Mariella Frostrup and academic and author Dr Lara Owen join Emma to talk about changing the culture around menopause. The Australian actor Rebel Wilson has revealed she is in a relationship with a woman. Last Friday, she shared a picture with her new partner on Instagram saying she she had found her "Disney princess". But it was revealed the following day, the Sydney Morning Herald wrote they'd known about the relationship before it was public. Their celebrity reporter said he had given Wilson 1.5 days to provide comment for a story. That report sparked widespread criticism on social media, with LGBTQ+ campaigners saying it was unacceptable to put pressure on people to come out. The paper has since removed that gossip column and offered an apology. Emma is joined by the journalist and feminist campaigner Julie Bindel to discuss. Lea Ypi, professor of Political Theory at the London School of Economics, has written a prize-winning memoir, Free: Coming of Age at the End of History. Lea grew up in Albania and for the first eleven years of her life, it was one of the most isolated countries in the world, Europe's last Stalinist outpost. Then, in December 1990, the regime collapsed. Lea joins Emma to talk about her extraordinary coming-of-age story. A new report funded by the Home Office suggests that sexual abuse of a child by their brother or sister – sibling sexual abuse – may be the most common form of sexual abuse within the family. Many experts say it is not given enough attention and resources need to be set aside to support families dealing with this. Emma speaks to reporter Livvy Haydock and Stephen Barry, who is the Lead Clinician at 'Be Safe' Bristol, part of the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health partnership NHS Trust. Fancy taking your rage at the patriarchy out on a computer game? Well a developer in Plymouth has come up with The Glass Ceiling Games, where you fire slingshots back against catcalls, slice machetes at unsolicited nude photos, and point a ray-gun against mansplaining. So does it make a difference when women write computer games?

From Brazilian butt lifts to fat-zapping procedures, breast enhancements and facelifts, the cosmetic surgery industry is huge.  Now, a joint investigation by The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and 60 Minutes has uncovered how the industry leaves patients unprotected, puts profits before safety and the laws that allow doctors with minimal surgical training to call themselves cosmetic surgeons.
