BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, October 13, 2021 / -- An Australian business woman’s belief that supporting women in business will change the world is being realised with the launch of the Hot & Healthy Academy and its online symposium.

Founder, Nicole van Hattem says women running profitable small businesses and living healthier lives, make for more stable communities, richer economies and the world a better place. Recognising the critical need for affordable, practical and accessible coaching and training for women, she built the online support and education platform.

“In the midst of all the messiness and confusion of the past couple of years, many women in business have faced financial challenges, overwhelm and isolation. The Hot & Healthy Academy is a community of support needed to succeed in difficult times, and will deliver training and support to women in business,” she said.

“The Academy is for women in small business. Its mission is to reach 1 million women by 2030 through a subscription and scholarship model that brings a diverse range of female business owners and entrepreneurs sharing what's working and what's not.”

The positive work Nicole has embarked has attracted the attention of Facebook Australia. “They saw the positive work Hot & Healthy are doing supporting an online community of women and committed their support by fully funding 20 one year scholarships for women to the Academy,” Nicole said.

Throughout October, the Academy is running an online symposium to bring together experts from various fields to inspire women in small business to go from surviving to thriving in every aspect of their lives during the pandemic.

“The symposium will share strategies and insights to help female business owners and entrepreneurs overcome the challenges of juggling business and life during the pandemic without burning out,” Nicole said.

“There are six sessions designed to help women master each pillar of success including finance, sales & marketing, physical health, mindset & emotional wellbeing, branding, and business systems.”

The symposium brings together experts who know how to make the juggle struggle work.

“This is training that won’t cost a fortune in time or money. It’s training they need now more than ever if they are going to move from surviving to thriving in the pandemic business environment,” Nicole said.

“The symposium guest speakers understand the struggles of making a small business survive and even thrive in challenging times, because they are doing it. They'll share what's really working for them and what's not and the business, mental health and wellbeing strategies that are making them resilient, finding ways to adapt and take advantage of opportunities that this current business environment offers.”
