Be Your Own Hero - We are joined by the wonderful Mandi Gunsberger, who founded Australia's largest digital media company for parents - Babyology. An experienced entrepreneur, we talk with Mandi about what she learned, growing and eventually selling Babyology, and what's next for her in her life.
The Monica Kade Podcast - We’re chatting with Mandi Gunsberger. The Founder and Managing Editor of Babyology, Australia’s largest digital media company for parents. In this conversation, Mandi opens up and talks on how she fosters curiosity and creativity in her daily life.
Inspiring Greatness - Mandi is an expert on juggling work and family life and the pressures faced by working mums, the modern myth of having it all and the fine line that exists between maintaining a professional career and achieving job satisfaction while still finding flexibility to raise a family.
I have known of Mandi for over 15 years since she started her last very successful and high profile business, and watched from afar with awe at how she built it into the juggernaut that it grew into. Having been in business myself for about as long, I know how incredibly hard that would have been to do and the leadership skills, business savvy and tenacity that would have been needed to do what she did. Mandi is not only a dynamic, energetic and passionate speaker, but she is also one of few who has actually proven her success in the business world. She presents powerful, and clear messages that not only resonate because they are personal accounts, but also because they provide a refreshing and honest viewpoint which is rare. I would highly recommend Mandi as a speaker, consultant or mentor – she has such a wealth of experience and knowledge that she could bring to any business in any industry.

When I reached out to Mandi about coming to speak at Hubb Hubb in Wagga not only did she agree, she was super easy to work with. From touch down Mandi delighted everyone she interacted with, she spent some one on one time with our guests as well as presenting her keynote. Mandi gave a real account of not only her journey but what it takes to build a business. She shared some brutal truth and was an open book. Everyone who attended was blown away and walked away with a few things they could implement to help their business. From tech to cheezels and everything else in between, do yourself a favour and book Mandi to speak at your event if it is 20 or 200 I guarantee everyone will walk away inspired and with some tips to action to move the thread in their business.
