Work with us

We (Elly and Colin) are both heart centred entrepreneurs, always willing to go the extra mile to help the people with whom we live, work and play. When it comes to professional arrangements, there are several different ways we could work together, so please DO contact us to start a conversation. We’d love to hear from you.

  • Work with Colin

    As a heart centred entrepreneur, Colin’s purpose in life is to inspire significance through a philosophy of give, take, invest and enjoy. And while his mission is to develop peoples thinking, he likes to keep things simple and remind everyone that business and life can be fun, even during the tough times.

    With over 30 years business and work experience behind him, he relishes helping others to be, do and have all that is important to them so they can enjoy more meaning, more money and more freedom. Believing that life is a team game, he is committed to building better quality relationships and making a positive contribution to both local and global communities.

    As a parent himself, he particularly enjoys serving active parents of young children; parents who are determined to grow their businesses, but who have exhausted their existing capability and knowledge, and seriously desire more balanced lives.

    To choose one of two ways (or both!) to work with Colin click the boxes below:

  • Work with Little Miss

    They say never work with pets or children…

    But when the child is a blue-eyed bundle of energy, with natural blond ringlets(!) and a playful personality, maybe you can think again.

    Talents to date (@ age 3½):

    • Can swim. We don’t mean just doggie paddle either! (Although she does choose that option when she can’t be bothered to do what seriously looks like breaststroke! Learned by doing too, no lessons)
    • Willing to say thank you in three languages (sometimes!). Has a very decent English vocabulary (not sure how you test such a thing) but you should hear her pronounce ‘hospitality’. Five syllables! No problem!
    • Avid reader and will read books out loud (nearly verbatim) after hearing the story only a few times. Maybe we’re impressed too easily but she holds some attention when doing it!

    The Heart Centred Entrepreneurs’ Intern

    Little Miss (born in late 2013) is already investing for the future and made her first share investment (in Warren Buffets Berkshire Hathaway Group) aged three. She keeps an open mind on how she can add value to your next brand campaign or feature article so be sure to approach her with your ideas. (Not that we can guarantee she will listen to all offers!)

    Likes to ham it up for the camera when she’s in the mood so also available for modelling.

    If your brand is interested in working with Little Miss, please reach out to her agents (Mum and Dad!) here.

      Having us share our personal experiences increases your online exposure and brand awareness in a way that connects with people. Many parents and aspiring 'digital nomads' take action after reading our recommendations.
