Hi we’re Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner and if you haven’t already guessed we’re passionate about supporting women. We believe that to change the world we simply need to begin by helping women. When women are well and happy they can care for their families, when families are well and happy that flows on to their communities and when communities are well and happy that flows on to help whole nations!
Investing in women has the potential to improve the outcomes for education, mental health, physical health and social wellbeing for now and for the future.
This idea was what inspired us to create AusMumpreneur, Australia’s number 1 online community for mums in business, which supports, elevates, celebrates, represents and inspires the thousands of women who have created their own businesses that work around their family life.
We love what we do and we’ve been featured in national and international media including, 7news, The Today Show, Sunrise, Today Tonight, Cosmopolitan, The Herald Sun, The Australian and hundreds of other publications.
Together we’ve written numerous books including ‘How to create your own successful and profitable business from home’ which is sold in bookstores nationally. We’re also the authors of Amazing Mumpreneurs, The 7 secrets to standing out and What I wish I knew before I became a mother.
We’ve traveled all over Australia working with women in business and helping them to develop their business at our conferences and live events.
We’re passionate about being a voice for women and have been active in advocating for more recognition of the work of Australia’s mums in business with State and Federal politicians, to encourage more funding and support for women in business. We’ve been pivotal in changing local government legislation, calling for a national conversation and thanks to our lobbying the Queensland Government recently announced $1 Million in support for home-based business owners.
Katy has a background in events and has hosted large-scale community events for thousands of people. Peace is passionate about education and is a qualified teacher who has taught both in Australia and internationally.
We’ve been awarded for our work in the community and in business, with Peace receiving the Australia Day Citizen of the Year award and Katy being awarded Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
We’ve participated on boards, Peace as a member of the board of management of Playgroup Queensland and Katy as a member of the Queensland Government Small business Advisory Board.
We’ve founded our own non-profit organisation, Mothers Helping Others, a community group with an aim to improve the lives of families. Raising over $80,000 in fundraising to build playgrounds, introducing literacy programs, parenting programs, photography workshops, and a supported playgroup for young parents.
But most importantly we are mothers. We have 7 children between us and are living proof that you can make business and family work. We understand the challenges women face as mothers starting new businesses and are passionate about ensuring women feel supported to find success through our online community, business school, events and annual Awards and Conference.
