Meet Kate. Originally from Adelaide, South Australia, and now living in Melbourne, Kate is a self-confessed bibliophile - a person who collects or has a great love of books. After completing a Bachelor Degree in Marketing and Communication, Kate found she wanted more from her career. She sought a way to combine her love for writing, editing and social media with her life-long obsession with books and reading. Voila! Kate created Lillytales; a book review micro-blog on Instagram. 
These days Lillytales is much more than an Instagram page; Lillytales is a website, YouTube channel and bookish merchandise brand. Kate and her fiancé Simone are the owners of an online shop, Nook & Burrow, which is a creative collective of handmade bookish homewares and accessories. Kate now splits her time between working as a publishing assistant, studying a Masters in Publishing and Communication and working to grow Nook & Burrow, and all of this stems from her love of literature. With Lillytales, Kate enjoys connecting with bookish folk from around the world and feels extremely lucky to have customers and friends who buy Lillytales handmade wooden bookmarks from all corners of the globe including Sweden, The Middle East, The US, The UK, Singapore, Germany and of course in her home country of Australia. Most of all, Kate hopes to create excitement and passion around books and reading and aims to inspire followers of her blog to pick up a book, hear a story from a voice they wouldn't usually come across and enjoy all the benefits of fantastic literature. She is a Strong Woman.

Meet Angela. From an early age, Angela always knew she was business minded; writing business plans and drawing pictures of her dream office. From the age of 14, Angela started doing work experience at any place that would take her, from advertising agencies to PR firms to record companies. At 17 she decided to write an entrance essay into her dream degree (Bachelor of Communications in PR) based on the amount of work experience she had done in the hope she would be accepted, even before sitting her HSC. Her application was successful (after much follow up!) and the start of her successful career was born. After the completion of her degree Angela started working at BMG and went on to work as National Publicity Manager for Sony Music Australia. In 2010 Angela started her own business, Flourish Public Relations. Managing some big names and accounts; Angela has embraced the PR world, living out Flourish’s motto: to thrive, prosper and grow. Earlier this year Angela was invited to speak at TEDxBedminster and share her vision as an unlikely girlboss encouraging women all over the world that you can achieve if you set your mind to it. Viewing every day as an opportunity and a lesson, Angela’s dream of owning her own business and conquering PR has become a reality. Angela is excited for the future as she launches a range of new businesses including an app, online shop and growing an online community that she has created via YouTube. She attributes her success to hard work and surrounding herself with positive people. She is a Strong Woman.
