Winners of #WinSHIFT!





SHIFT opens up for registration tomorrow… but before we kick off, it’s time to announce the winners of the #WinSHIFT competition!




And the winners are:

Silver Membership – Jelaine of Little Alligator

Gold Membership – Emmaline of CocoPress

Congratulations ladies! I’ll be in touch soon to organise your course places.


To everyone who entered – THANK YOU for sharing your stories, your struggles, and for sharing the post far and wide on social media. It takes courage to open up about what we’re struggling with in our businesses, but it also helps to be challenged to think about what you want to change – because recognising you need change is the first step in making it happen.

For those of you who are going to take SHIFT and join me in making BIG changes in September – I’m already proud of you for investing in yourself and your business, and chasing what you want. I hope what I have to teach you – the journey I’m going to guide you on – will be a huge catalyst for you.


Registration opens tomorrow morning at 9am AEST right here.


If you have any questions about the course, I’m going to be holding a live Q&A chat on Google Hangouts on Wednesday 11am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time). I’ll be there for half an hour answering any questions you have about the course.

If you can’t make it at that time, please just leave any questions you have in the comments below, and I’ll endeavour to answer them for you.

I still can’t believe it! Thank you so much Jess. I can’t wait to get started! πŸ™‚


Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really am lost for words! I was certainly much more eloquent in my original comment! I am so excited to be given this opportunity, thank you Jess!
