2023 has been many things. Expected isn't one of them. Like being interviewed by Robert Miller for CEO Weekly.
Nine Carat was designed from the beginning to be a larger-than-life company. Something I would grow into. But even with the expanse of that plan, it never ceases to amaze me what experiences come up along the way.
Julie has had quite a tumultuous journey through life. But as all great people do, she turned that turbulence into something worthwhile for herself and for others. Julie teaches women how to discover what they can do and then make something of those skills. Working outside of traditional formulas and their own expectation of self.
This is what made my conversation with Julie all that more interesting, focused on a more belief system foundation and how I apply that belief system to the way I work and build my company as an example to others looking to do the same.
I thoroughly enjoyed Julie and the energy she bought to this interview. And contributing to an interview from a different perspective than usual. Julie has served on numerous non-profit boards and was named Woman of the Year by the Professional Women’s Network of the Monterey Peninsula in 2013.

Corporate Vision was launched with a focus on bettering business practices globally. They spotlight advances in the HR, Marketing, Coaching and Recruitment sectors, with the intention to highlight gatekeepers of better business. People and Companies who use their expertise to help creatively build and develop more productive and efficient workplaces for the betterment of our experience at work. They are dedicated to honouring the top performers across sectors globally to enhance access to those driving business into the future.
For the past 3 years, Corporate Vision has recognised individuals and firms who have illustrated a commitment to innovation, first-rate Client Service and are dedicated to breaking new ground in the dynamic and ever-evolving field of Corporate Coaching and Recruitment. It is through these awards they showcase businesses that are making an essential difference to others and designing a better working world for everyone.
It was our great pleasure to be named within these Awards, as the Most Insightful Global Management Consultancy Firm - 2022. We work hard to design advancements in our sectors and the sectors of each of our Clients. But we would not have been able to make such an impact if not for those Companies willing to work for it themselves. We would like to share this Award with all of our Clients that have chosen to do things differently and have chosen to invest in not just their success, but the success of everyone that makes it a reality. Our sincerest gratitude to our Clients and our Network for bringing the future of business to life.
A thank you to Corporate Vision for highlighting exceptional individuals and firms in this sector. And a round of applause for having a grander vision for business on all counts. Much gratitude to the person or persons that nominated us for these Awards. It is an honour to be named within this list and exhilarating to know there are so many organisations working towards achieving new levels of success for others.
Being afraid to learn our own value is our biggest obstacle. But if we don't start doing anything we will never learn how. If we are all just looking to be heard, what is stopping us from listening to ourselves?
Tiffany made this an interesting conversation, I could barely keep up with everything I wanted to say.

Jeff Mendelson | One Big Tip
Jeff Mendelson believes in paying it forward. Sharing experiences and perspectives from People, with People. In the hopes that something we hear on his Podcast, may be that exact piece of gold we’ve been looking for.
His One Big Tip Podcast is all about bringing those big ideas to a broader audience.
My conversation with him moved into a more Personal Coaching and Development arena, rather than the usual Business framework perspective. Covering the ideas, that if we are waiting for the perfect moment, we risk not succeeding at all.
That there is gold to be found in assessing our routines and habits, and the results. How our comfort zones only depict a portion of what we have the potential to achieve. And how life is all about perspective and choice. How we have the freedom to chase our dreams despite society telling us how we should be or what is expected of us. Letting go of our limitations to build the life and success we desire.
“Sometimes, you need to be willing to burn down every idea of what you think success looks like, to give you the space to create the life your dreams.”

Their Australian Enterprise Awards programme is dedicated to celebrating successful and pioneering businesses and professional individuals, who have played a crucial role in contributing to the Australian economy.
In 2022 they have focused on highlighting talent across all industries, that have demonstrated perseverance and who have played a pivotal role in the resurgence of this economy in the face of recent difficulties.
Australia boasts many individuals and organisations from across a myriad of sectors who are recognised throughout this year’s Winners. I am beyond humbled to have Nine Carat Business named the Best Strategic & Transformation Consulting Firm from Queensland for 2022 under this banner. Australia, just as the World, has severely been affected since 2019 for an endless list of reasons and in equally as many ways. Bravo to everyone that has both made this list and those that have not. For contributing to a leading economy. Seeking and moving towards new solutions in our ever-changing landscape.
We have been privileged to work with and support some of those People that have fought hard to survive these times or take them as an opportunity to achieve more. And to witness the emergence of a new level and dedication to business, careers, and goals. To have been able to contribute to those journeys has been an exceptional experience. One that I hope continues for everyone.
Thank you to APAC for promoting this list of leaders in Business for 2022 and including us amoungst it's ranks. And much gratitude to all of those of whom we have been able to help.
Meet the Founder - Auspreneur
What an honour to be profiled in Auspreneur !
There are so many facets to what Nine Carat works to achieve for Businesses and for People. With purpose echoing in our ears we have made a million small choices and had many epic adventures, which have lead us to where we are today.
… “I don’t think I was inspired to become an Entrepreneur. I was inspired to do more. I was inspired and frustrated by the wasted potential I could see in Companies. I didn’t think about becoming an Entrepreneur, I thought about how and where I could position myself to do more, help more, achieve more for People.“
It really is all about the journey. Not just for us but the Clients we work with. We work diligently so that each and every one of them learns so much from how they get somewhere. That they can’t help but be transformed by the process.
Maybe the story of an ordinary girl, from a small town in Brisbane. May just inspire someone, anyone to break the mold. Step out of their comfort zone and take on the world. It is my hope that it does. And that they find their adventure spectacular.
Be your very own kind of brilliance!

mold your business into a diamond
“Where you have synergy, you have clarity. If things feel hard, you don’t have synergy or clarity." - Jamie Meyer
Dave Lukas’ line Release Your Inner Misfit speaks to me on so many levels. His focus on non traditional methods for achieving Success. Sounds like my life, laughs. As I am sure it resonates with so many others. Essentially Dave’s idea of a Misfit, is your X factor. The thing that makes you so uniquely you. What makes you stand out from the crowd. And how by harnessing and following that thread of individuality. We reach new heights of achievement. The kinds of achievements that speak so throughly to who we are, what matters to us and our goals.
Dave is a celebrated and extremely accomplished Entrepreneur. He endeavours to leave a trail of insights to life for his young daughter. Which is the kind of noble cause that inspires something just like Misfit Entrepreneur, to take on a life of its own. Becoming a greater platform than even he originally anticipated.
So whether you are an Entrepreneur or an In-trepreneur. I encourage you to lead with your inner Misfit!! Embrace your X factor. Be prepared though, for all the places it will take you.
Following this thread, Dave and I discussed how to mold Business into your very own Diamond! Which is right up my ally! You can listen to our conversation here;
