What I believe
I believe that we all deserve to have the life we dream of having. I also believe that – most of the time – we are our own biggest obstacles in getting that life.
Through constantly striving to improve ourselves, aligning ourselves ever more closely with our soul purpose, getting laser sharp on what it is we’re trying to create, and getting our shit together bigtime, I believe that anything is possible.
Lorraine Murphy is an award-winning entrepreneur, best-selling author and speaker.
She started her first business – The Remarkables Group – in her spare bedroom in 2012 and that business went on to secure multi-million dollars in turnover.
During her time in that business, Lorraine and the company received several plaudits including being named as one of BRW’s Fast Starters, Entrepreneur of the Year, Emerging Agency of the Year, Content Marketer of the Year and Australian Start-up of the Year – as well as being finalists for the Telstra Business Awards.
Lorraine has featured frequently in media, including The Project, Sunrise, The Today Show, Sydney Morning Herald, Collective Hub, Marie Claire, Sky News, ABC News and The Australian.
In December 2017, Lorraine sold The Remarkables Group in order to focus on her “soul on fire work” – writing, speaking and mentoring.
As well as one-on-one mentoring, she has trained brands including Uber, Westpac, Woolworths and Unilever.
She has published three books, all with Hachette Australia:
- Remarkability (2016) – an entertaining and practical account of the biggest lessons she has learned in her entrepreneurial and business journey
- Get Remarkably Organised (2018) – an infrastructure for both personal and professional success
- Baby, You’re Remarkable (Aug 2019) – an honest account and passionate discussion of Lorraine’s experience of becoming a mother and also running her own business
Lorraine lives in Sydney, Australia has been married to fellow entrepreneur Wade for six years and is the ridiculously proud mother of (and trainee expert negotiator with) their toddler Lexi.
