Describe the shape of a good life for you.

I think balance is somewhat of a myth because at different times in our lives, each of our important components of a family business, friends, ourselves, our own wellbeing must take priority. And it's really down to finding a fair split. Doesn’t that mean that each of them get attention at different times.

Can you please share your pitch with us?

I'm Nadine Nethery, the founder of Can Do Content and a strategic copywriter for women-led brands who want to strategically attract, delight and retain their dream customers. Over the past five years, I've given global e-commerce success stories, game-changing startups and industry-disrupting service-based businesses, the words to build genuine connections, each of them at different points of their business journey. I'm also a mum of three cheeky munchkins who keep me on my toes when I'm not wearing my Can Do Content hat.

How do you protect yourself from business risk?

Ultimately, how I protect myself is to work with the right clients to make sure we're resonating before we even start work working together. I believe that the women who come to me regard me as an expert in my field, and that's why they're coming to me. So they come with a level of trust to begin with that I make the right decisions for their business. 
Another big one is defining boundaries and expectations so that I'm very particular on how I work with clients and as a mum, particularly I have said now is that I work and then I am shutting down the computer for the day to be there for my kids. So defining those boundaries and setting expectations before the project kicks off is super important not only to prevent misunderstandings from happening down the track, but also to reassure people that I have my processes in place and they are there for a reason.

What is the most important tip in that path to growing a business?

Since I've paid attention to my cycle, it impacts the way I show up and the tasks I tackle, it's made a huge difference. It's not always possible to schedule everything around your period, but I aim to make appointments in certain weeks. Like podcast recordings or photoshoots, things like that where you need to feel confident and show up with confidence. I wouldn't schedule that in the week that you know my period. So it's just being mindful of how your body supports the way you show up.
