Ella Rathbone - Business Coach - What It Means To Be A Woman
In light of International Women’s Day on Sunday the 8th of March, I’ve asked some of the amazing women in my life to share what it’s like to be woman.
I’ll be highlighting a variety of women from different backgrounds, careers and beliefs to bring you a selection of just how awesome being a woman is.
This next inspirational woman was there at the beginning of K-Rae Designs. I met Ella at a market where I was in awe of all her hand lettered prints and cards. I said a friendly hello, the ol' "omg I love your stuff" and then walked away. Something inside of me told me to go back and ask her about her biz, so I plucked up the courage and started chatting about starting my own business and not knowing where or how to start
Ella being the beautiful soul she is, gave me a full run down...telling me how to get started. One of the things I am forever grateful for is, is that she pointed me in the direction of a local printing company...that I still use to this very day. Man she even took me out for coffee so I could ask more questions. How flippin' awesome is that!? Now...she's kinda steered away from lettering (formerly Your My Type) and has started her own business coaching mums IN business.
What makes you feel empowered about being a woman?
I feel empowered when I can help and inspire others to go after their dreams.
What has been your most proudest moment in your life? Whether that be in your career or personal life.
Proudest moment for me was selling out of my workshop tour in 2018 when we traveled aus in a camper van. There were so many risks including will anyone even come to these? But when I sold 180 tickets I just felt blown away that I could accomplish my dreams like that. It made me excited to show others what’s possible.
Why is it so important for women to support each other?
Because we are so dam hard on ourselves and self-doubt is such a killer of dreams.
What's your go-to self care to feel like a queen?
Having a deep conversation about someone’s dream or an hour long massage 💆♀️
