REBEL BLACK | THE RURAL WOMAN
This interview was published as a collaboration by the team at Creative Consulting and Graziher is proud to support their month-long series of #ruralregional women.
THE Rural Woman came from a feeling of isolation and desire for deeper and more meaningful connection with like-minded rural women...I wanted to stop complaining about it and do something instead.
What inspires you?
People living their truth! And authentically living their best lives and realising their dreams. I love the stories of real people achieving wonderful things...not necessarily ‘big’ things, but living conscious, meaningful, impactful lives.
How did your project/business idea come about?
THE Rural Woman came from a feeling of isolation and desire for deeper and more meaningful connection with like-minded rural women...I wanted to stop complaining about it and do something instead. I was also frustrated that there were these incredible rural women doing great work and being limited by their geographic reach and that there was no platform for them to discover their voice, connect with others and then amplify their voice/mission/work into the world! I’d been playing in the online world for a few years and saw incredible opportunities for rural women to expand all areas of their lives and create economic and social impact in their communities through harnessing the internet. I didn’t realise it at the time, but what I was launching was, in fact, a global tech company.
What stage is your project/business in?
We are in start-up, readying ourselves to scale.
What were you doing before you launched your business/project?
I was running a successful business and health coaching business working mainly with rural women. I was also volunteering my time to a national project on an almost full-time basis.
