Nicky Bowden from Land of Lilly showcased her organic skincare business, while Katelyn Platten from Van Dough tempted everyone’s tastebuds with a gourmet donut display.

Endota Spas Adelaide founder Karmen Wakelin discussed why she started an Endota Spa in South Australia, while attaining a healthy work/life balance with her family.

She provided the aspiring women in the audience with some very important advice

“Start your business today, rather than waiting for the ‘right time’ because you will regret the time lost if you don’t,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Stretton Centre’s Natalie Carypidis discussed the facility’s co-working arrangements and the free business support available to them.

“We have had so much great feedback from everyone, all saying in their feedback forms that they will recommend this style of event to anyone and that they can’t wait for the next one,” Natalie said. Women’s words:

“Energetic and inspiring event.”

“Always motivational and nice to meet like-minded people.”

“It was a valuable learning environment, where you felt safe to share ideas.”

“Networking with other like-minded people, it was well worthwhile.”

“Great for mumpreneurs."
