Ellen-Newman_The-Great-State_Sml.jpg

I am super excited about today's episode! I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with Ellen Newman about the recent launch of her Australian skincare brand The Great State and the concept of editing your life. We also chat about conscious consumerism, minimalism, educating perfect customers, building social media anticipation, blending mum life and creative life, brand avatars and keeping things simple.

Note: Ellen also wanted to let you know that she's reading a book called Small Giants by Bo Birlingham, which she thinks will be a great read for many of you!
