Attending the AusMumpreneur Conference was a turning point … it was the moment I stopped thinking of my business (The Baby Diaries) as a “side business” and started to focus on creating a globally successful business. Being surrounded by hundreds of other amazing female entrepreneurs, all following their passion and dreams is one of the most inspiring experiences another entrepreneur can have. Tara O’Connell
