Show Notes:

Last year, even though incredible, was a year of burnout for me. I’m excited to say that I’m starting to feel like I’m back in my groove, and I’ve really found power in saying no. Saying no isn’t necessarily because I don’t want to do something, but because I want to create more space. Creating space takes work! Often times, setting these boundaries actually feels like you’re doing the wrong thing because you aren’t doing what others are doing. Today, I’m getting real and honest about what this space looks like and what you need to do in order to prepare for the next steps in your life and business.

Show Notes

Today’s quickie is a special one because I am sitting down with James Purpura, the co-founder and CEO of Powerful U, a personal evolution company with the goal to inspire people to tap into their potential. James’s story is a beautiful one of incredible transformation, growth, and perseverance, and I can’t wait for you to listen in on the conversation we have today. Chris and I will be speaking at the Powerful U conference, and have an amazing ticket price for all of our listeners– you don’t want to miss this one!

 

James and Steph’s journey of transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. Before they met 15 years ago, both of their lives had hit rock bottom. They were both financially, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt. Life had beaten them down and shattered their self-esteem. At the lowest point in their lives, they met and were united by a shared vision of creating and becoming more. They started the only place they could by working on themselves and helping each other grow. They believed in each other but more importantly, they challenged each other every step of the way, and never settled.

 

Shortly after meeting, Steph wrote James’ first resume and taught him how to send an email. This began James’ unlikely career in technology. Around this time, they also started a family. Fast forward fifteen years, after many ups and downs and a lot of hard work, Steph and James recently sold their tech company, one of the world’s largest construction software companies. They now have five beautiful children and live an extraordinary life. Through this journey of self-creation, they developed a personal philosophy centered around perception. They believe perception, more than any other factor, will determine how someone’s life will turn out. James and Steph started Powerful U as their way to give back to the world. They believe that through the knowledge they accumulated on their journey they can help others live the life they desire. Their dream is to bring personal development to the masses by making it affordable and readily available to all seekers.

Jane Lu founded Showpo in 2010 from her parents’ garage.

With much enthusiasm for entrepreneurship , she set off to start her first business, which failed spectacularly. However, Jane was undeterred and got right back on the horse, starting the online fashion brand, Showpo the following month. What started off with a laptop and two shelves of clothing is now an online global fashion empire,shipping to over 100 countries.

Through being disruptive in the retail space and capitalising on the use of social media, Showpo now boasts a cult social following of over 3.3 million engaged followers collectively and has a team of over 90 across Sydney HQ and Distribution Center. A regular keynote speaker, for some of Australia’s biggest brands and having fronted stages for audiences internationally, Lu’s expertise is unparalleled, and her tone of voice, is real and relatable. A prominent figure in the Australian start up scene, Lu has been nominated for numerous awards,taking home taking the title of Cosmopolitan’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia in 2016.

Lu’s personal experiences led her to build her own entrepreneurial community, Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine, which she co-founded with serial entrepreneur, Gen George. ​Together they have grown an active community of over 85,000 members.​​ Bringing women together to hear (and give) real, honest advice, to be inspired and to join forces - all over a good class of wine of course.With Lu at the helm, 8 years since its founding, Showpo owns its status as one of Australia’s fastest growing fashion e-commerce retailers. Recently awarded the highly coveted Australian Online Retailer of The Year Award and is on track to reach its goal of $100 million in revenue by 2020 with no external funding.
