I remember when Nine Carat was nothing more than 5 pieces of pink poster paper taped to a wall and a fervent desire to transcend the standard boundaries of business operations, practices and structures. Although I was driven to unearth the furthest extent of what was possible for others, I don’t think I could have imagined what Nine Carat would become. As I reflect on the evolution and the impact Nine Carat has made on Individuals, Organizations, and Communities, I remain humbled and deeply passionate about our mission.
The recent honour of being named Corporate Vision's Corporate Performance Coaching Provider of the Year for the 2023 Education and Training Awards underscores a fundamental principle at the core of our foundation: the empowerment of People, drives the unparalleled success of Organizations. We firmly believe that genuine achievement for any entity stems from the cumulative and magnified accomplishments of those within it.
From our small beginnings, we dedicated ourselves to crafting internal infrastructures that embodied this philosophy. We challenged conventional models and ecosystems trapped in a never-ending cycle of conformity. Part of what we do is equip Organizations with the tools to break free from the norm, elevate their standards and practices, and fundamentally redefine their success and sustainability. Through these efforts, we inspire and cultivate the success of those who steer the ship daily.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Corporate Vision, for providing a platform to recognize individuals and companies of this calibre. It is an immense honour to be counted among such ranks.
To our fellow Awardees, I offer my warmest congratulations for the impact and contributions you have made to your respective sectors and missions. May your endeavours be met with resounding success, and may you continue to drive positive change and innovation.
Great Companies was founded with a mission to harness the entrepreneurial spark to ignite creativity in others. It serves as a platform for visionary Entrepreneurs to share their inspiring stories, fostering collective growth and success.
I am honored to announce that Nine Carat has been recognized by Great Companies as one of the Top SME Businesses of the Year in the Business Services and Consulting Category for 2023. This accolade is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire Team, Network and Clients.
I extend my heartfelt congratulations to all the exceptional Entrepreneurs and Businesses who share this recognition with us. Together, we continue to open doors and kindle the flames of innovation.
Thank you, Great Companies, for this esteemed honour. We look forward to a future filled with designing even greater Success for those we work alongside.
Alicia Cramer's family owned a dairy farm. A dairy farmer's life is hardening and its general mantra is "Hard work." So despite always dreaming of working for herself, it is no surprise that Alicia's journey to success was both hard work and hard. An interesting contradiction, when working for herself was an ambition of admiration and freedom. And yet hindered by the adopted conditioning from the life of a young farm hand.
By 22, Alicia had 2 businesses under her belt. Obsessed with succeeding she worked 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. Only to find those businesses slip away regardless of her investment.
Alicia still held onto her desire to have her own business but had to face the reality that she was creating a chasm of difficulty between her and her success.
At 25 she tried again, focusing on her passion for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Achieving some success, but like many, didn't have the expertise in building a successful business. Around the age of 28, Alicia had additional incentive to really commit to her success, which led her into Hypnotherapy Training.
She is now the go-to Hypnotherapist and Mindset Expert for Entrepreneurs, an International Best Selling Author, Public Speaker and has been an Expert Panelist on a TV Show for 2 Seasons.
Her expertise now focuses on Mindset Reconditioning to overcome blocks to success in business and life.
Alicia and I discuss how much smaller the critical gaps in business have become but are under-utilised, new forms of possible business infrastructure, being trapped by what we have become accustomed to, breaking out of those restraints to consider what success alternatives could lead to, how recycling the old stagnates growth, how to not waste a crisis and make it your greatest opportunity and how all of this can then be applied to our own personal development or progress.
If you aren't willing to face your challenges, you probably aren't willing to look at your opportunities.

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.

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.
