Tell us about your product or service.
Outsourced Me is a planning and strategy organisation for B2B customers. It's about taking ordinary and making it extraordinary. Strategic plans should be mastered from the ground up. Like a piece of art; they should be sculpted to suit a businesses uniqueness.
Regional businesses should not have to have their plans conform to templates just because they live beyond the CBD.
What inspired you to launch your business?
After the company that I was working for went into administration and we were all terminated, I found it difficult to find a job that ticked all of my boxes. I wanted to be able to work from home, to do a job that I love doing, to do a job that is flexible around me and my family, and to be challenged and extended on a daily basis. So I made my own boxes and began my own business, Outsourced Me.
What problem does your business or organization solve?
Modernising and reforming the quality of business services available to small and medium enterprises in regional Australia.
What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
Practising what I preach. It is one thing to assist a business with their strategic plans, to help them find more time for themselves and their families, but I still sometimes find myself working 24/7 too. So I have to take a step back and look at my actions and remind myself of the reasons why I began this venture.

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
Project Eve has so much quality information available to entrepreneurs and business women. It's my favourite treasure trove of knowledge.
Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry.
Small business owners still think that they need to do everything.
They burn out, they get business fatigue, they sometimes fail. But they will do all of this before they even consider outsourcing some of their business. There are some really deep seated traditions behind small business in the country, and the one at the top of the list is that you don't ask for help, the second is that if you do, that help is going to be really expensive.
