I personally feel like I’ve been an adult for a really long time.

I was one of those ridiculously ambitious people in my late teens and early 20s, who was desperate to grow up quickly, and took on very mature things like moving overseas, buying my first property, getting married and having children or in my early 20s. I know that in many ways, my early adult life is not common. But my experience has given me the opportunity to embrace being an adult and the challenges that we face once we step out of our childhood, and enter the new world of adulthood. 

As the founder of Organise.Curate.Design, I’ve spent the last four years developing our business and sharing my knowledge with our clients and community. It’s been such a pleasure to work with clients in their lives and businesses, to really help them understand how to make changes for the better and to empower them to design their new lives. But I’ve been really mindful that we have young people in our community or parents of young people who would love to pick my brain and take on some of the lessons that I can share, but may not have the capacity to book one on one time with me, or spend time with me at an event. So this is why we’re here.

I’ve pulled together some really incredible interesting people who are also, fully grown adults. Over the upcoming episodes in this first season, which is a six part series, I’ll deep dive with them on specific topics that I think are important to the early stages of your adult life.

We will share stories, laughs and maybe some tears and help you see that with a little bit of support. Taking on the learnings that other people have experienced and being open to the power of human connection. You can ease your growing pains and design those first few years of adult code for the better.
