Our Story

Girls Talk Business started out as a simple little Facebook Group. The group was created to empower women who run their own businesses from home. Now, three years on and with over 8000 Facebook followers our Facebook Group continues to grow. Throughout this time we have encountered our fair share of challenges. One of our biggest challenges was; how to stay true to what this group was created for while avoiding turning our Facebook Group into just another promotional platform.


In 2019 we launched our first Girls Talk Business website. Then in 2021 when we rebuilt our website to provide a membership with direct access to industry experts and business providers who offer:

  • Training and masterclasses that show you how to run businesses successfully

  • Resources, templates, checklists and high-quality tools for you to build a profitable and sustainable business

  • Tools to help build confidence, set goals, and take actions

  • Opportunity to up-skill and attend training based on what you need for your business

  • Attend events, join as a guest speaker and build long-term friendships.

 

Girls Talk Business believes the best form of advertising is by building relationships through collaborations and connections. Our goal is to provide a Website that caters to businesswomen who are:

  • Exploring and transitioning to owning a business

  • Creating a new business

  • Growing a business

We continue to focus on providing real value in our Girls Talk Business Facebook Group by encouraging women in business to have honest conversations about their business. While at the same time providing membership on our Girls Talk Business website where we connect members with industry experts and help them create the business they are truly proud to own.

 MyStory

My entrepreneurial journey began at the age of thirteen! My parents were hard-working immigrants who taught me, to achieve success; I needed to "work hard". My parents owned their own business selling clothing at the Local Markets.  This is where I began to learn the ins and outs of running your own business. I spent all of my weekends working. It was an unusual upbringing and I was required to grow up pretty quickly. Much later in life, I learnt to value this experience.

At the age of twenty-two, I decided to enrol myself in a design course.  By the time I reached twenty-seven, I felt I was ready. Armed with all this knowledge and determination I was ready to start my own business. In 1995, six months after I married my sweetheart, I opened my first retail business, a surf & streetwear store called Barracuda. For seventeen years, I gave it my all. I poured my heart and soul into my business, and the hard work paid off. I created a successful business at a time when many people said, it couldn't be done. ​

 

In 2012 I made a decision to close the door on Barracuda. ​I had burnt out, I realised I needed to stop and take a deep breath. So I took some time out to reconnect with myself. I spent the next few years exploring what I liked and what I didn't like. During this time I uncovered my strengths and weaknesses. I learn how to slow down and I discovered I enjoy meaningful conversations. It feels like a lifetime ago, but I am so grateful that I invested quality time in myself. It was the best thing I did and now I am ready for the next chapter in my life, Girls Talk Business. and I can't wait!
