As many of you know, The Grace Tales, the company I’ve spent the last seven years building was recently acquired by AllBright, the career network for women.
After an incredibly challenging 2020, I couldn’t be more excited about my next chapter. I launched The Grace Tales when my firstborn was a newborn, and at the time, I was also the deputy editor at Australian Vogue. The Grace Tales was almost like therapy for me, it gave me so much insight into the world of motherhood. I spent many years attending fashion shows all over the world, but I’d swap those shows any day for a Grace Tales shoot where I’d meet and connect with so many women.
Connection is at the heart of what AllBright stands for. And today, I am so excited for you to meet Debbie Wosskow OBE, who along with Anna Jones, founded AllBright and I have the extreme pleasure of now working for. Debbie is, by her own admission, a serial entrepreneur. And an incredibly successful one at that. She sold her last business – subscription-based home exchange business Love Home Swap to Wyndham for $53 million.
Aside from being a fierce supporter of women, she is a Member of the Mayor of London’s Business Advisory Board and sits on the Board of the Women’s Prize for Fiction. In 2016 Debbie was awarded an OBE for her services to business. She won the Evening Standard’s Business Award for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ 2018 and was shortlisted for City AM’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2017.
In this conversation we talk about the three ‘g’s’ which every entrepreneur needs, the ‘why’ of AllBright and how 80% of success is about turning up.
AllBright Australia has now launched (make sure you check it out at allbrightcollective.com) and I can’t wait for you to get involved in this incredible platform – let’s meet Debbie Wosskow.
