I am the cofounder and director of Natural Supply Co, a one stop shop for natural yet luxe products for your home, pets, kids and beauty drawer. To date, we have helped hundreds of customers make the switch to greener products, saving our environment and minimising chemical exposure. Learn more about our mission, values and amazing product range here.
The experience of being a small business owner has helped me to be a better lawyer, because I truly know what it's like to be a consumer of legal and professional services.
Supporter of women
Founding Natural Supply Co also made me an entrepreneur and I'm privileged to be a member of the League of Extraordinary Women and Business Chicks, where women support other women doing good in our community.
I love innovating via social media. To this extent, I set up a Facebook group called 'Help a sister out'. This group enables women to ask and answer questions (anonymously if they want) about their career, work issues and life changes - in the security of a supportive private group. There are now over 8,000 women in this group and the numbers just keep climbing every day. Request membership today. Learn more about the group in this published Daily Life article.
Innovating in the law
I also love being an intrapreneur and innovating from within an organisation. At Moores, a law firm, I've been privileged to play a key role in innovating the legal industry. At Moores, we no longer bill by the hour, instead we do Moores Agreed Pricing. You can find out more about that here.
I've also worked with Our Community to launch the Not-for-Profit Assist Legal Membership Service - a one-of-a-kind service which provides legal help to the sector for a nominal annual fee. Learn more about this service here.
One of the best pieces of work I've ever done is co-write (along with my brother Andrew Brooks) the Child Protection Toolkit, again in partnership with Our Community. This free resource was launched in 2016, providing over $80,000 in legal help to the Not-for-Profit sector, at no charge. Our goal is to help organisations provide safe places for children and completely eradicate child abuse in our society. You can download your free copy of the Child Protection Toolkit here.
