Chrissie Davies of Chaos to Calm Consultancy has been nominated for the 2018 AusMumpreneur Awards. She is nominated under the people’s choice category of “Making a difference.”
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognise Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to recognise the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
Chrissie Davies is an educator, consultant, writer, loving mama via open adoption, and passionate advocate for understanding children with challenging behaviours. She is committed to empowering and supporting families to live the life they truly deserve. She lives with her husband and young family in Melbourne.
Chrissie has over 15 years’ experience working for the Victorian Education Department, a decade of which was spent working in Specialist Education settings to meet the needs of children with extremely challenging behaviours.
Through her consultancy Chaos to Calm, Chrissie specialises in creating understandings and strategies to meet the needs of children with challenging behaviours. She supports both families and educators to create more awareness of the different ways to use communication and emotional engagement to make positive changes in children’s behaviour. She is also an Australian Childhood Foundation “Bringing up Great Kids” facilitator and a 123 Magic and Emotion Coaching practitioner.
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Chrissie Davies explains, “Without a doubt I love being my own boss. I just love that I am the one who gets to dictate how my day looks, what decisions are going to be made, who I choose to work with, and that I can run a successful business around my family. I meet so many families who are just not happy. They are stressed out working long hours and hardly ever see their kids, and they really are just so miserable in so many aspects of their life. I have to remind myself constantly that whilst running a business is so hard some days, I am giving my children a great life with a mama who is super passionate about the work that she does, and that she is also so much more emotionally, physically and spiritually available to them.”
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Chrissie Davies gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise.”Be prepared for the isolation. I had absolutely no idea that being a business owner would mean incredible loneliness. Try to surround yourself with people who are also running a business by joining a networking group. Get out and socialise as often as you can. Investing your hard earned money in attending events is well worth it, but you will work out the ones that are beneficial for you and your business. The best thing I ever did was find my people – the ones who get me, inspire me, encourage me and support me in everything I do. The people who remind me of the life changing work that I am doing, and how important it is.’
