There is NO cure. But there is HOPE, it starts with YOU.

Hanging Up The Heels

Yes, finally I can share, it’s time for me to hang up the heels!

After a great deal of thought, I have made a decision to sell Business in Heels this week, to two amazing ladies, our Branch Director for Melbourne CBD and Geelong, Lisa Sweeney (whom many of you may know), and her business partner and long-time friend Jo Plummer will be the proud new owners of Business in Heels effective immediately.

Lisa & Jo are very well credentialed to lead and further build on the wonderful business model that we have built since the launch in January 2013. They have a successful history in business development and I’m very excited to see where the business will go with these two amazing ladies at the helm.

I will continue to work with Business in Heels with Lisa & Jo over the coming months on a consulting arrangement so you will still continue to see me or my name out and about with the brand still.

It’s been an absolute joy to work with each and every one of you, and am really excited about where the business will be heading with these new changes. I am confident these Ladies have the passion, experience and drive to take this business into a whole new level.

All in all, a very exciting time for Business in Heels, and myself, with already a few incredible projects in the pipeline for 2014/2015!!

Business in Heels CEO and founder Jac Bowie has shared how it was her mother’s illness that prompted her to quit her ten year career producing burlesque shows – a move that eventually led her to start what is now the fastest growing women’s networking concept world-wide.

In an interview with Eagle Waves Radio host Arrnott Olssen, Jac said she knew it was time for a change when she discovered she found more joy in producing for charity work such as the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras or NAIDOC Week, as opposed to big name shows like The Burlesque Ball.

Listen to the interview

“Even if a show was a commercial success, I felt like I wasn’t really contributing anything substantial,” she says. “I was contributing entertainment, but I wasn’t really helping people, and that’s the difference.

“I had a lot of skills but I wasn’t very good at working for other people. I thought surely there are other women like me – who are entrepreneurial, professional and have ambition, but who want to have fun and do this [networking] over champagne in a relaxed environment and look at it as a social event on our calendar.”

Now, a year on since Jac franchised Business in Heels, Jac has on average 160 branch applications to sort through at one time, as well as being the go-to for almost 50 branch directors.

Of the marketing, which typically features Jac herself in 1950s glam “housewife” get-up, she explains: “If they’re attracted to our marketing they tend to be the right women – the irony behind the marketing is I’m standing there looking like a perfect Stepford Wife and we’re taking the mickey because we’re so much more than that. If they get that, they love us.”

Jac also shares how she found herself working as the tour manager for the “Wolf of Wall Street” Jordan Belfort, shortly before franchising Business in Heels.
