2023 Wrap Up - OAK Magazine

Until you look at where you started, you can’t really see how far you've come, and after a quick number crunch I'm extremely proud of what I've achieved this year as a solopreneur and mum of four.

  • Issue 13 with a courageous conversation around eating disorders in regional Australia, and mentioning 87 women-led businesses.

What I haven't included is the number of conversations and kind words I've received from our community that makes every moment worthwhile.
