I’m Claire –
Here’s what makes me tick!

Where creativity, feel-good energy (and a big smile), meets strategy! Together, we’ll unlock amazing potential for your small biz.

Do more of what makes you happy

You started your own business for a number of reasons, but I daresay, wrangling social media or pushing pixels on your website was not it! You love what you do and who you do it for, but there’s only so many hours in a day, yes? 

You know that marketing is important, and that consistent marketing is crucial if you want to grow your business, but there’s so much to do, so many choices, and new technologies launching every day. No wonder you feel overwhelmed.

You want marketing that is an authentic reflection of who you are, and what you stand for. You want marketing that speaks to the heart of your ideal clients, and a website you can be proud of.

This is where I come in.

Claire note to self

Enter: The Clairifier

Several clients christened me ‘The Clairifier’ for my ability to take overwhelm, a million bright ideas, and competing priorities, and crystallise it into a clear (and awesome!) game plan.

Other clients call me their wing-woman, virtual business manager, sounding board, hype-girl, mentor, ideas person, or secret weapon in business, for my ability to make stuff happen. 

I draw on my roots in television, and my many years as a creative producer, to turn ideas into reality for soloists and small business owners.

From Rockhampton to Sydney (with a few stops in between)

Born in Rockhampton in Central Queensland, my small business roots began in my parents’ motel in Yeppoon, where I acted as their right-hand stand-in for all manner of tasks.

From Yeppoon, I moved to Brisbane for uni, then interned at WIN TV in Townsville. I jumped at the opportunity to cut my teeth in TV production, relocating from tropical far north Queensland, to Traralgon in Gippsland, Victoria. 

In 2003, aged just 27, I landed my dream job at Black+White magazine, then an iconic publication for fine photography. Throughout my 20s and 30s, I acquired a diverse range of creative, marketing, and production skills, that makes me confident in almost any situation to make something out of nothing!

For small business owners without marketing departments, customer service teams, events managers, or production teams, the skills I’ve developed and honed across more than 20 years, prove to be invaluable. 

From bouncing creative ideas, to being a sounding board and voice of reason for new endeavours, to talking you back from the ledge when you’re stressed or overwhelmed, to coordinating a virtual team of other talented ‘doers’ to get your new website live, roll out a new marketing campaign, or launch a new service, I am the secret weapon for many businesses you know and love, including Rachel’s List, Happy Buddha Retreats, and Living Flow Yoga.

I love vibrant colour, tween-twin-wrangling, coffee (an oat cap to be exact), my two rescue dogs, mindfulness, yoga, and reminding people exactly how awesome they are.
