As young children my sister Brooke and I thought the age of 30 was ancient. We could never have comprehended that life after 30 would be this much fun. How wrong we were because here we are today in our 30s, living life to the fullest and excited about what life has to offer.
It was our late 20s when we started our business working across the oceans because Brooke lives in the States and I live in Australia. During the last kilometer of one of our favourite seven kilometer walks in Sydney, The Bay Walk, Brooke asked me to join with her in a business venture she had been thinking about for some time. Luckily I didn’t think too hard about this because at the time I didn’t realize the enormity of what we were about to embark on and as I look back today I am amazed at how far we have come. So we left our well-paid stable jobs, withdrew our life’s savings and pursued this business venture to fulfill our life long dream of working together on products for women.
So the thoughts we had as little girls were wrong, after turning 30 our lives have become even more exciting. We never anticipated how beneficial wisdom could be as we continue to grow with every day and year. We are of course still learning, but it feels good to know more about life than we did in our 20s, and to use that wisdom to live our lives to the fullest.

We do have visions of what we would like our future to be but what we have learnt is that even though life doesn’t always go according to plan, the most important thing is to be flexible and open to whatever comes your way.
