The Secret Sauce To Making Really BIG Goals Happen [A GUEST POST BY GRANT]
Hey guys, It’s me. Leonie asked me to write a blog post on the things I’ve learned in the last year of working at Leonie Dawson International. Instead, I called her, and we talked about it instead. Join us in this honest conversation from the heart about the sweat, insight, work and tears it’s taken to grow a company from a $1m to $2m company in a year. We’ll talk the big questions like: Are you an Uber Ingrid the Implementor? Are you ready to evolve and scale your business? Is it time to grow a team beyond your skills? Analogies, laughs, and some plain old good advice mixed with lots of “Leonie moments”. Don’t miss this episode. Listen below, or subscribe in iTunes here.

That’s how you achieve scale.” – Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn Big love, YOU MAY ALSO LOVE… Jan 02

Interviewed! On ABC Radio! Well… FUCK A DUCK!
I got the call while I was in Launceston. ABC Radio. Wanted to interview ME. I text my hunk of a husband. He texts back his always loving, sage, guidance: Remember, this is NORMAL radio. NO swearing. LOLZ. What kind of fucking swear bear does he think I am? Oh wait. No, he’s right. Good advice. Me & my travel buddy Jill ate waffles for lunch for sustenance, then I took a nap. Answered my phone. And there it was. Me. On radio. On ABC radio. Feeling damn well famoooose right now. Most proud of self for keeping it (mostly) together. Thanks + big love to Polly McGee who was utterly delightful. Listen on here: Download audio file (ABC+radio+-+Leonie+Dawson+interviewed+by+Polly+McGee.mp3) Today… ABC radio… Tomorrow… THE WORLD! Can you believe it possums? Fuck a duck. The weird hippy from the mountains… Ole L-Lo from Da Block… on A.B.C.RADIO. So SWISH. So POSH, man! At heart I’m still a derpy blogger hiding out on the internet trying to find where all the other cool weirdos are. I’m so glad I found yas. I’m kind of torn between saying: SHHHHH DON’T TELL ANYONE ELSE WE ARE HERE! LET THIS BE OUR LIL RAD HIDEOUT AWAY FROM THE NORMALS! and embracing the fact that it’s you + me that are gonna change the world… and we can’t do it by hiding away from the rest of the world. But still… let’s go out, do our work… then come back here + commune with tea + bikkies, yeah? Big love,

A Podcast. A TV Show. Unedited + raw + from my heart
Loves, Many moons ago, I used to make videos. Videos in my car. Videos outside. Videos under a tree. Heck, videos up a tree. They were spontaneous. They were lo-fi. They were rambly + unpolished + vulnerable. They felt like meeting you for cups of tea + sacred picnics. They felt like there was nothing in between us. And then somewhere along the way, I got told enough times by well-meaning business mentors + teachers: You need to be more polished. Your webcam videos are so not professional. You need to use better video equipment, and have shorter videos, and be more concise. And so I bought a video camera + lights + a fancy video recorder. I even created a video “set.” And then I proceeded to make… fuckall videos. It just wasn’t fun anymore. It wasn’t spontaneous. It felt hot + prickly + sweaty. It just wasn’t ME. Instead of just turning up to a picnic + talking to you, there you were far behind the blaring video lights + I couldn’t hear you. All I could hear was the stern voice in my head saying: You just as you are is not enough. Stop rambling. Stop saying umm. Get to the point, Leonie. I forgot my voice. I forgot what I wanted to say. I became so focussed on finding Something Important to say. Creating became un-fun. When before it was the greatest joy of my life. It’s been a reclamation ever since then. To finding my own path, my own voice, my own way of creating. Rules be damned. I don’t often follow “the rules” of how things should be done. But I did in this particular area of my business. And official review in: IT SUCKED THE BIG DONKEY BALLZ. So here I am. Today, I felt the flow of energy course through me. The energy that said: Something needs to be said. Something needs to be shared. For

How To Sell Your Artwork As Prints Online! (And the HIDDEN SECRET to SUCCESS!)
Possums, There’s totally something I should have been doing instead of recording this podcast. Tomorrow I’m flying to Melbourne. I’m a finalist in the People’s Choice Award for Making A Difference and the grand overall prize in the Ausmumpreneur of the Year Awards. And I’m supposed to be making a presentation in front of the judges. So I promptly decided to record a podcast instead. But hey… I’ve got the night ahead of me! Why do now when you can do late at night? Just call me Last Minute Leonie. I survive on the thrill and the adrenaline of it. Ha! Anyways, in this podcast I: get ranty + ravey about Facebook comments talk about my freakouts trying to decide what to wear for the Gala Dinner at the Ausmumpreneur Awards intro my new hairstyle (rainbow streaks, thanks to my ex-boss and Virgo dreamboat Lile) I’m fairly sure I said some smart things too at some point. I can neither verify nor confirm. Watch as a video, listen as an audio or subscribe in iTunes here.
