My name is Susan Jane and my business is called Intuitive Nature. I am an author, speaker and workshop facilitator encouraging you to develop, trust and utilise your intuition to create sound decisions with confidence. But like most small, service based businesses I struggled to increase my bottom line. I couldn’t get my name, brand or service out and into the public eye.
The harder I worked on creating more products and services for the business, the more it effected my physical health. As my physical health declined my inner thoughts and mental processors deteriorated, spiraling me to work harder in my business. I knew I was getting it wrong and I had to urgently make significant changes.
You see I was working on my business, BACKWARDS.
I had learnt how to start, create and build a business from every aspect but it still wasn’t bringing in the results I was hoping for. I was working longer and harder to get business wealth that I neglected my physical health and devastated my inner stealth.
To get my business right I needed to personally develop in the right order.
Get the Head right
Get the Body right
Get the Business right
This is how the Personal Growth Expo came to be. Unless we consistently grow in all aspects of our life we will not create the success we want. To get your bottom line flowing you must flow in your mental thoughts and attitude and have the physical stamina to achieve your goals.
The Personal Growth Expo collaborates with small, service based businesses in their local area to give them the opportunity to shine in the public eye. It will have keynote speakers, hands on workshops and intimate presentations to attract a target audiences wanting to personally develop in your area of expertise.

I vision indeed to be proud of but please read on and let Janice tell you about her personal growth story.
I, lead a relatively quiet life until I was faced with a few of life’s adversities. I was strong and gained my true strength to fight and keep the dream alive. It was my younger years when I first achieved as a young ten-year-old to reach state championships in Athletics with a gold medal. It was my athletic pathway that showed great potential. Dreams, and goals of reaching more gold were gone, in one split second – for the mind to conceive. It only took a family members comment to shatter my dreams and I never run again.
What makes you think you are good enough and I never ran again!
I did a lot of other sports, netball, basketball, and was a leader in Aerobics up to 5 days for a week, over 5 yrs, however I never competed in athletics again.
I witnessed and experienced many life changing events. In 1998, I faced losing my partner of 30 odd years to the disease Alzheimer’s Dementia. Then in year 2000 I placed him in a home. In late 200,1 I uplifted from Darwin and moved to Brisbane; in 2002, my partner passed away. In 2003, my daughter moved back to Darwin to start a fresh life and now happily married with 2 children. In 2005 from a standard doctors’ consultation I was diagnosed with pre-cervical cancer – it was caught in time.
6 short months later; April 2006, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and faced radical surgery to have to fight to keep the dream alive again. In 2007 after 9 months away from employment I faced the gradual return to work. From then onwards to 2011 I faced my personal challenges of development and growth after my illness. During this time, I wrote lots of notes on parts of my life as a way of coping during a challenging time in life. It wasn’t until around 2009 I was fortunate to study Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and then it finally clicked; I gained further clarity and started to write of my own experiences and bring this into a book.
With another adversity to face in 2012 and a radical impact on my life I was retrenched from a 30-year career in the Public Service. I was fortunate to have the insight to learn from the personal development impact and to have enjoyed writing in this time that I self-published my first book in late 2012. I also was challenged after an appraisal of my first book to create my second edition. 2015 my revised second edition was re-published with guidance and enhanced new content. This has led me on a path of new discovery to want to write more. I was fortunate to gain a writing coach and my second topic (3rd book) was born; called A VISION to Win. This book was published in May 2017.
I have a small library of books on the go. A small series of 6 books for 8-18 ages of which 2 of these books are written and 4 plots ready to go. I have 2 books plotted on ‘my journey coping with Alzheimer’s’ and the other is ‘coping with breast cancer alone’ both books are plotted just need to be bought into story. I have managed getting these book into order on my own and had some help from a mentor. My inspiration is mainly to inspire the young adult to see themselves already achieving what they desire in life.
My current book A VISION to Win is a story about my athletic days, and the journey of what I learned along the way. How to win Gold all using the power of the mind.

Videos for Marketing
When you come on board the Personal Growth Expo we do a one minute video of you, your product or services and your involvement with the Personal Growth Expo. This in itself has many different levels of Personal Growth.
Firstly it may help you step outside your comfort zone and stand in front of the camera. A Personal Growth aspect that I took on recently. It also gives you the opportunity to market yourself to your audience in a different personal growth light. This gives them another look at who you are and what you stand for. Thirdly you have the video to use throughout all of your websites and social media sites. Now you’re really putting yourself ‘out there’.
Working together we can create a bigger impact on the local community, helping not only those in small business but those in the greater community improve their personal development. Assisting with business wealth skills, personal health habits and positive mind set attitudes all under one roof.
Don’t miss your opportunity to shine at the Personal Growth Expo. Stall holders that have paid their deposit by August will get more chances to promote their video than the late comers.
P/S The blooper is on the Personal Growth You Tube site and I’m sure there will be many more to come 🙂
I have on many occasions but today when the Star Track man delivered my parcel he asked me what business I was in, I was taken back at his response.
I explained that I was an author and speaker about all things Intuitive. My company was called Intuitive Nature and I focus on developing, trusting and utilising your Intuition to make sound, confident decisions. We are all naturally Intuitive, it is part of human Nature. It is our Intuitive Nature.
‘Ahh,’ he said in a slightly put out voice. ‘Women’s Intuition. You know sometimes I think that’s just people overanalysing stuff?’
Well this really struck a chord in me as I have often been told I overanalyse things and I knew intuitively he had experienced prior issues with his partner, about things he had said or done, which she obviously questioned him about.
I’ve been told that I question things too much, I feel too much, I should stop thinking about things and let them go, I don’t need to understand everything, or my favourite … stop overanalysing it, it was only a joke. What is a joke to someone can be hurtful to another and yet when you express your discomfort you’re told to ‘stop overanalysing.’
So once the Star Track man left I did what every good over analyser would do when given a statement like that, I analysed why it struck a chord in me. I wanted to get my head around the emotion it caused to see if intuition and overanalysing had something in common.
When I analyse something I want to get a grip of what is happening, why it is happening and what the results could be if it continued. I do this in an effort to improve, develop or personally grow in my life, to become someone or something better. I only analyse things that have affected me in some way. It has to be important and have a strong emotional effect on me for me to analyse it at all.
So, if something is that important and creating a strong enough emotional effect I want to get an understanding from it. You can imagine how it feels when you’re told to stop overanalysing! Especially when it’s your partner or friend who has pressed the emotional discord in you.
OK so this is about overanalysing emotions, something a lot of men might not understand, but emotions are as important to me as Holden was to Peter Brock. Would it be right to say that maybe the Holden racing team overanalysed the car and should have just let it be. Who cares if the fuel injection system had a glitch or if the car body was heavy creating more drag? Really! Do you need to look into a car race that deeply? Can’t you just go faster or ignore that flat spot when the motor roars to life? Of course that wouldn’t be heard of, in fact every single aspect of those racing cars is analysed over and over again because the team know it is important to them and they are never satisfied when they know things can be continuously improved on.
Imagine if Jeff Horn’s coach told him to just get into the boxing ring and ‘Beat the crap outta the other guy!’ One can only guess the years of dedication in overanalysing every aspect of that sport, in every manner possible, to achieve the ultimate career goal. One of the biggest areas that would have been analysed nonstop for the last twelve months would have been Jeff’s attitude to the bout. Constant tweaking and testing of his physical, mental and emotional beliefs as he trained would have been an upmost priority but isn’t that just over analysing? It appears that when it comes to our feelings or emotions we are not allowed to overanalyse but on other things we are.
Hmmm … very confusing but what has that got to do with our intuition?
Emotions and Intuition go hand in hand and it is the analysing or reflecting inwards that allows your Intuition to develop quicker and more accurately. The only real way to develop your Intuitive strengths and grow personally is to reflect on your emotions and yes that means analysing them over and over again. Knowing what pressing your buttons and how you can control it but first you have to understand it by analysing it until you are satisfied. This is Personal Growth or Personal Development at it’s very best and I bet those of you who are told you are overanalysing things are also very intuitive because of this reflection.
Personal Growth isn’t just about your skills in business or getting your physical body healthy, it is also about your mindset and your emotions. Let’s face it if you don’t love doing something, or have the passion and drive to achieve your goals then you will be struggling in those areas of life.
Get your head right to achieve your goals.
Get your body right so you can physically achieve your goals.
Get your business right so you can enjoy the fruits of your labour or at the very least feel great about it.
An expo designed for you to grow in all areas of your life and it’s all under one roof.
