Peace Mitchell was the mum of 3 boys living a quiet life in tropical north Queensland before her life changed when her eldest son was accepted into the Australian Ballet School in Melbourne and soon after she found she was expecting baby number 4! She now lives in South Melbourne, with her husband, 3 sons and baby girl Ellsea.
Peace is passionate about supporting mums. In 2006, following Cyclone Larry, Peace and her sister Katy, worked tirelessly to support mums with young families through their non-profit organisation Mothers Helping Others and Peace was awarded Australia Day citizen of the year for her efforts in helping rebuild the community in the aftermath of this disaster.
Formerly a teacher, having found her purpose in helping mums, Peace knew she could help even more families by reaching out to an online audience and in 2009 together with her sister Katy began work on their online business, Connect2mums. Despite living in a remote town with a population of just 8000 they quickly grew their business to a national community of over 16,000.
In 2011 they launched The AusMumpreneur Network, an online business specialising in supporting, celebrating and empowering mumpreneurs through a range of online courses, the annual AusMumpreneur Awards and the AusMumpreneur Conference.
Peace has always loved being a mumpreneur and being home with her children but particularly so since having her new baby. She is inspired by the women she works with everyday and the flexibility, freedom and creativity that this lifestyle allows is something she is passionate about sharing with other mums who are looking to create their dream life too!
