This article is an ode to the members who have been with Fusion Biz Babes since day one – exactly ONE year ago! They have stuck around through the pivots & changes the membership has gone through, to get to the epic place it is in today – a FUN support and motivational network for Perth’s high-vibe entrepreneurs and leaders.
The Fusion Membership turned ONE on 25th March 2018. Happy birthday to us!
In the past year many lifelong friendships, and amazing collaborations have been formed in the membership 👯
We have celebrated countless WINS together, VENTED about our challenging days, attended many EVENTS together, and shared countless LAUGHS over litres of COFFEE and WINE.
We now have over 80 members, and have a strong growth strategy, whilst continuing to celebrate our current members, and hold authenticity, genuine friendships, and making networking FUN as top priority.
Ok, now on to the good stuff! Get ready for some serious inspo! 👇
Jess McCallum – Confident Life
In the past year, in our members facebook group there has been A LOT of talk about having the confidence to put yourself out there. And Jess has the tools we need! Her business, Confident Life, is a place where people can go to feel empowered, receive knowledge and support regarding relationships, self esteem, strengths, careers, values, and mental health issues, and feel a sense of community and realise that they are not alone.

Elysia Tsangarides – Maple & Wren
If you love flowers (who doesn’t), you will LOVE Elysia’s work! I love it so much I asked her to do my wedding flowers…and she did not disappoint! ☝🏻 That’s me and my girls on my big day in Dec 2017. Elysia specialises in stylish florals and also creates seamless events with her event planning, management and styling side of her business.

Erica Urquiaga – Baked by Erica
There is so much more to Erica’s business than just delicious, melt in your mouth cookies! There is heart, hustle, support, and not to mention a touch of awesome shamelessness! Fusion Biz Babes partnered with Erica to raise funds for the families affected by the December floods in The Philippines at the Lisa Messenger event.
Thanks also to Erica for the token cookie supplier for the Fusion events!
Diana Todd – Balance Tax Accountants
You know one of those businesses that seemingly skyrocket out of nowhere – well that’s Super Diana from Balance Tax! Except it hasn’t been out of nowhere. Her pure hustle, grit, determination, hours of work has seen her catapult to be the GO TO Accountant for small business in Perth over the past 12 months.
She has also barely missed a Fusion member event, and is always full of smiles, kind words and support. And is my trusted Accountant, where no question is too silly. Thank you Diana!
It’s coming up to end of financial year – book your appointment with Diana here.
Jessie Parker – Borne Too
If you want a laugh… Jessie is your girl! Oh, and if you’re a new mummy and looking for comfy + stylish breastfeeding wear – she is also your girl. Jessie owns and runs Borne Too – simple, stylish and practical maternity clothing for new mothers. I love having Jessie at the Fusion events as there is never a dry eye (due to her hilarious jokes) and she adds so much depth to the conversation with her business experiences.
New mummies check out Jessie’s stylish breastfeeding wear here.
Jacqui Lamplugh – Jacqui Lamplugh
Jacqui is a naturopath, lecturer, speaker and a women’s health and natural fertility expert with a passion for helping women balance their hormones naturally. She is also a new mummy, so she clearly walks her talk.
Jacqui actually spoke at one of my VERY FIRST events – even before Fusion Biz Babes existed, when I was running lifestyle events under the name Fusion Life Perth. She also happens to be one of the nicest people I know, and we shared our high school years together so I have known her since we were 14! We are so similar in many ways, and I have always looked up to Jac.
Lanna Hill – One Small Step Business Coaching
Lanna has been along for the ride with Fusion Biz Babes, since not only the beginning of the membership, but since the beginning of our events! She was our very first guest speaker at our signature keynote events, and to keep the tradition going I also asked her to host the very first Masterclass for The Fusion Membership when it launched a year ago. Since then we have shared many other “pinch me” moments, including joining me on stage at the Lisa Messenger event, and the interviews for Raw Ambition! Thanks Lanna for all your support of Fusion!

Vanessa Geraghty McGann – Vivacity Marketing
I always say Vanessa is Fusions #1 cheerleader! She is always getting involved in the facebook group and providing her advice on all things business and marketing, she very rarely misses an event, and is always the first to congratulate members on a win.
After taking over and rebranding her marketing business, Vivacity Marketing, only 8 months ago, she has tripled the business revenue and matched her corporate salary! How? Vanessa credits a big part of her success with getting out there in her community, attending events, meeting people, adding value and building real friendships. After all, people do business with people they know, like and trust!
We did a case study on Vanessa and her business success, you can read it here, and if you’re looking for more of a direction with your small business marketing, check out her unique marketing coaching packages here.

JB Muscat – Little pink typewriter
Every biz group needs a quirky copywriter! And JB is certainly that for Fusion Biz Babes! Right off the bat, JB has been getting busy in the group – posting, supporting others, delighting us with her magic words. We have watched her build her biz to a point where she could quit her day job, and go all in. I love seeing people go after their dreams with blind ambition and that is JB. Even if she has confused us with her million nicknames! 😉

Katie’s business is much like Fusion Biz Babes – supporting women to do their thing! Katie supports Australian Handcrafted businesses and suppliers all in one place, and after just giving birth to her FOURTH baby, she is the epitome of Supermum.
