How did I get here?!

 Well.... I have my brother to thank for this.

He lead me here, he has been talking about Steemit for months.....I pride myself and being at the forefront of digital technology - I literally live on the computer and my phone.  So how come it took me slow long??  I really have NO idea!  I don't have an excuse. 

I am Jacqui Williams.  Creative, Resourceful. Business Owner, Digital Marketer,  Mum to 2 gorgeous girls.  Partner to Garth. Into Crypto Currencies.  Living life in full colour. Traveler. 

Serial entrepreneur - I have started from scratch 4 successful businesses,  Wedding Styling, Serviced Offices, a Medical Centre, and now work Online.  I may live in Newcastle NSW, but my mindset is global. 

Am passionate about travel, as an Australian I almost think it is a right!  It takes us so long to get anywhere on this planet, I think maybe is why us Aussies take off around the globe for a couple of years at a time - I certainly followed that well flown route to London on QF1, several times!   Have been fortunate enough to travel extensively, Hong Kong is my favourite place on this planet - I love how East and West merge in a kaleidoscope of colours, textures and smells. 

Completed a Masters of Art, being a starving artist didn't exactly turn me on, so I monetized my creativity by decorating weddings for the last 18 years - but those days are nearly over and is time to move on.  Started making the transition to working online a couple years ago, and I absolutely love it.  

If you want to see me happy, stick a paint brush in my hand,  a nice big juicy tube of oil paint on the table, with a fresh white canvas in front of me.   I can't decide if I prefer painting flowers, or social commentary.  A nice glass of Chardonnay will also suffice. 

If you want to see me sad, tell me that Roger Federer has lost a match.  I will not take it well.  

But my life wasn't always this great - a couple of years ago I lost almost everything I had due to a business deal going south.  It was my darkest hour.  But I was determined to pull my life back together, and I did!  

How did I go this?  But listening to copious amounts of podcasts - on mindset, motivation, digital marketing and healthy living.   Changed to a plant based diet - made so much easier with the encouragement of my 2 vegan daughters.  Am a green smoothie connoisseur.  

But sometimes our life has to fall apart in order for the good things to happen to us - this is certainly correct in my case.  I would not be in the happy place today, if I had not been to hell and back. 

I look forward to contributing,  creating value and getting to know you all!


Oh, you are from Austrailia,
and you like Federer than Nick Kyrgios.
Interesting, though most tennis fans like Federer.

Learned to know some Aussie view of travel and online business from your writing. Interesting.
