10 things you ‘may’ not know about Carly (that aren’t just about business!)….

I thought it would be a bit of fun to share 10 things you may not know about me personally.

What I didn’t think about in deciding this was that I am such an open book, it makes it very hard to actually find things you don’t already know about me and my journey! So hopefully here are a few of them. I would love to hear more about you too! Feel free to share in the comments!

  1. Give me a ball and a stick! I was a hockey player during my school years. I did try netball but much to my mums sadness I couldn’t handle all the rules and lack of contact! I loved the team environment, the belonging, the roughness and the winning!
  2. I am a ballerina….. I started Ballet at the age of 20. My mum wouldn’t let me do it as a child, so the moment I had enough money myself and a group I could jump into I got started. It was challenging learning ballet with 14 year olds who had been doing it since they were 3! But I loved it! Especially barre and the gracefulness and flow of the movements. I wasn’t even close to the amazing ballerina my sister-in-law is, but I loved it all the same!
  3. Here doggy doggy….. I am a dog person and grew up with bull terriers. Absolutely beautiful dogs who were so loving and patient when I dressed them up in baby clothes… They were not so loved when out walking and everyone took a wide birth around us despite their placidness.
  4. Did someone say Law??  When I was at school I wanted to be a lawyer (may have had something to do with Legally Blonde… haha! No, not really!). I changed schools in year 12 so that I could study legal studies. I missed out on law at Flinders Uni by 2 points! Ironically, it was the best thing that could have happened to me.
  5. My first business…… My first business was called BellyThere Personal Training. PT for women and particularly mums which is where a passion of mine was even before kids. This didn’t go any further as we made the decision to grow our franchise and our family instead. 🙂
  6. I was going to be a midwife…. I studied midwifery for a year after being accepted prior to having my first son (pregnancy and study didn’t go well together, so I deferred for a year). While I loved the content, placement made me realise that I am just not cut out for shift work or working for someone else. I was however cut out for looking after women and loved getting to support them (see a common theme with my careers?).
  7. Highschool Sweethearts….. I have been with my husband since I was 16. We won the Barbie and Ken award in year 12 and here we are 16 years later!
  8. I loved to save…. I used to be an incredible saver and would pay off any debt very quickly, making it my challenge to pay off my cars. I was slightly obsessed with the loan amortisation tools while I was in financial planning. I am not as good at saving now I have a mortgage and kids, but I have definitely had a love for knowing my numbers for a long time!
  9. I am not a Traveller…….. I have lived in Adelaide my whole life, barely moving within a 5 minute radius from when I was born (I LOVE the beach!)! While I have been to most states, I am yet to go overseas, mostly due to my dislike of planes!
  10. I am a mother of boys…… I have two young sons, quite the surprise given I come from a family of all girls (I have a sister who is 4 years younger and all girl cousins! My sister and cousins have all had girls!), we broke a bit of a drought in both our families (Shannons cousins were all girls on his Dad’s side! His cousins have all had girls, and there is only one other boy!)! I am slightly petrified of the teenage years as I have no idea what to expect! Boys are new territory for me!
