We help people earn an income with every sale that comes as a result from them. It helps merchants with incredible low toxic, natural and safety products get them out to the World & allows our customers access to products they can trust creating win wins everywhere!
What products/services do you offer?
Low toxic, natural and safety products and services as well as online summits with experts on health
Why did you start your business and how long have you been running it?
I have overcome ill health myself & by sharing & coaching many clients to regain their health, it became apparent that I had to make those products more available to others.. I manifested our own products as well I used so everything inside me lead me to creating .. I started working on it 12 months ago & didn’t question .. just had faith to follow the divine guidance as all the people I needed to support, that truly believed in my vision came to me effortlessly through synchronicities.. I am blessed to have a toxicologist who assesses all products we showcase and can rate them building trust for our customers in order for them to make informed decisions, plus an incredible IT expert that can create my vision into a platform where we can showcase with everything being automated plus incredible marketing globally across all areas & get it known to the World!
What struggles do you think most businesses face in your industry and what would you say they need to do to overcome them?
Many others live in their heads & tell themselves they cannot achieve things.. by working on selves daily through creating space, meditation, daily rituals & trust.. this allows them to actually tune into their heart space which is actually 16 times more powerful than the head & our internal GPS from divine, so they just then have to have faith to follow this divine guidance & learn to listen to the unlimited possibilities everywhere they wish to create. Also fear can limit success, like fear of what others think, fear of success etc but if you don’t compare and jump outside the comfort zone, you enter into the power zone where anything is possible!
What has been your greatest accomplishment?
Winning International Business Awards through one of my Training Companies, www.firstaidyucan2.com which was created through a life changing tragedy where I am so blessed to save my baby boy after finding him unconscious in our back yard pool the day I was unpacking boxes in our new home when he went missing! I most definitely was divinely guided to go looking and then could get over myself & realise it wasn’t about me but all about him and to get over myself to be able to know any attempt was better than no attempt and it didn’t need to be perfect to lay him down when everything else failed and perform CPR and Save his little life.. That caused me to give up my Engineering out of my head and tune into my heart to create a Training program where it wasn’t to get the tick in the box, but to create something using personal development and accelerated learning techniques plus experience to actually empower clients and give them tools to feel confident should they ever face a similar tragedy! This now is my legacy as it absolutely continues and I am so proud of creating and as I went from using my head to listening to my heart and creating and impacting .. it became highly sought after training without having to ask as others came to me through this energy and my why was bigger than my why not, so I went on to create other training where others could learn to live a more fulfilled life through what I learnt and tune into their heart also and if necessary change careers and not manifest a tragedy .. so www.yucan2.com.au was formed.. this latest Platform was created after overcoming my own health and having products as well as safety products available plus also having my Programs delivered online too and available thorough this platform also.
What has been your biggest ‘fail’ so far?
Launching an incredible innovative product and being the face of it, before its time. Inflatable Rashies, a great solution for drowning.. Every time I hear of another drowning, particularly me having an incredible solution would rip me apart as I felt so let down that my marketing wasn’t good enough for others to rush to purchase and therefore the drownings would continue.. To help clear this, I donated them to other Organisations and now after all those years of marketing followed by years of nothing, people than contacted me to purchase despite me giving them away.. Was a big fail in my opinion!
What do you love most about your business?
I love how it has the ability to affect so many lives not just in health but also in wealth as well, particularly in the light of current circumstances & I love how it helps merchants that have used their resourcefulness to create solutions for problems today & how this rewards them & gives them exposure through collaboration to their qualified market creating win wins everywhere!
What do you find most challenging?
Having to let go and have trust in my amazing team with their different expertise’s ie IT & toxicologist so it all works cohesively together whist keeping the vision alive & moving ahead
How do you promote your business (please include as many details as you can)?
Through word of mouth, affiliates, social media, advertising, podcasts, me speaking at Events etc
What business skills do you have (eg. graphic design, customer service)?
I am a Trainer, speaker, advocate, change maker, creative, realist, passionate about health after overcoming my own & love sharing how it overcame holistically .. I am actually an Engineer also but gave that up when I overcame my adversity in exchange for becoming an entrepreneur here to make a difference as I believe it happened to wake me up as things are always happening for us!
What software did you/your designer use to create your website (eg. WordPress, Wix)?
WordPress & Shopify
What are some of your favourite business tools and apps?
Zoom to connect, calendar for scheduling
What do you like about your website and what’s not working for you?
Love how it showcases incredible products as well as provides opportunities for closed online summits as well as online discussions which add value etc & I love how it supports not just physical products but also electronic products also.. Love how it allows merchants to add new content, photos, videos etc and allows us to scale them on our toxic scale providing this to customers for extra value
What lessons have you learnt during your time as an entrepreneur?
So blessed to have the flexibility especially when kids are sick etc When you work for others, sometimes what you input does not get recognised or someone can take the idea you have whereas as an entrepreneur you are rewarded by the work and ideas you implement so success leaves clues.. Mimicking great leaders expedites success so a great coach is an investment to help you! Who you surround yourself you become! Exercise and healthy eating actually helps mindset so has to be absolutely a priority every day! Creating a professional space in which to work allows boundaries in place to focus.. Celebrating and acknowledging wins often is essential as energy begets energy! Practicing gratitude daily is essential, having a plan to work to each day is essential with accountability & having a vision & seeing, hearing and feeling it as already done most definitely expedites the success and clarity as subconscious will always provide .. Not necessarily a plan but focusing on where you need to go to achieve the desired outcome so synchronicities just happen effortlessly with grace and ease helping to reach that goal and impact the World in a positive way so you can be the change in the World you need to be!
What key tips for success in business would you like to share with others?
Be open to receiving so you can impact the World in a positive way.. It is ok to be rewarded for your work as the more you receive, the more you can leave a legacy for generations to learn and the more you can affect this World
Asking for what you want but being careful what you wish for
YOU have to fill your own cup first
What is the one thing that you want everyone to take away from this post?
If you believe it, with actionable steps and accountability you can most definitely achieve as nothing is impossible and day 1 is better than day none! I want to inspire others so they can also impact this World in a positive way. So thoughts leads to feelings leads to action which leads to success!
