Hello and welcome to my little place on the internet,
Sia’s Place is my personal blog. It is a documentation of my daily life, a notebook for my projects & thoughts and it is a platform for my online business.
Here are 5 things you might like to know about me:
1. I’m a Mum
Everything can seem so overwhelming when you are a first time mum. It’s hard to know what products to buy, what preparation you need to do before the birth, what books to read and how to simply get through the day. It’s exhausting, it’s challenging and it’s also the most amazing experience that anyone could ever be blessed to have.
I certainly don’t have all the answers (nobody does) – I’m just trying to figure out this mummy thing as I go along.
2. I’m a Thermomix Consultant
In 2015 I became a Thermomix Consultant. I wanted to make my own baby food and I knew that having a Thermomix would change my life! I couldn’t afford to buy one at the time so I worked my pregnant butt off to earn one as a Consultant. It was so much fun and I’m super happy that I did it.
Now I am sharing my Thermomix journey with my clients and also with anyone who wants to listen to me rave on about it!
3. I published a cookbook
This year I teamed up with another Thermomix Consultant and together we created a cookbook – if you are interested in learning more about traditional Greek food and how to cook it in your Thermomix, then I encourage you to check out my other website – Fayi Cookbooks.
The book is a collection of traditional Greek and Cypriot recipes which have been converted for thermal cooking machines. You can purchase a copy of the book from this link: MEZZE Small Plates To Share
4. I love blogging
Yep, I love blogging and I love digital marketing. This blog Sia’s Place and the cookbook blog I mentioned earlier, are just two of my online businesses. I also have a blog about Greek Weddings and Traditions and an online shop which features beautiful handmade wedding and christening products – the Greek Wedding Shop.
5. I teach and I coach
Before becoming a mum and a full time blogger I did lots other things. I completed two university degrees – a bachelor in business and a bachelor of education. I teach business subjects such as accounting, legal studies, BOM and BCT to high school students.
I also have years of experience in hospitality and I enjoy training teams of baristas, wait staff and chefs in small cafes and restaurants. I used to work for a well-known coffee franchise and I travelled Australia and internationally to do store openings and train new franchisees. I then went on to managing two of my own franchise stores.
Whilst I still coach a handful of cafe and restaurant owners, I am now retired from the hospitality industry and I don’t plan to work “the daily grind” behind a coffee machine again.
6. I build websites
I’m not a professional web designer however I have built a quite a few websites over the years. If you need a website created for your business or blog then please let me know. I can either build the website for you or coach you through the process of doing it yourself. I can also help you with your social media marketing and business development goals through my business coaching services.
Please schedule a free 15 minute coaching session with me. I would love to hear more about your business ideas and how I can help you to grow online.
7. I love to travel
My husband and I both love to travel. Here is a list of all the places we have travelled to so far: Travelling Together
We try to save as much money as we can for travel adventures and we are always thinking about our next trip. I’m not sure where we will travel to next, but I do know that it will be soon. We take lots of pics and videos of the places we go to and I love to share them all here on my blog.
Do you have a blog or an online business?
