They’re a wild, clever, crazy and good-hearted bunch I’m proud of. And no, I’m not talking about my family (although happily, this goes for them too). I’m talking about Ruby Assembly’s clients. One of the best things about running your own business is working alongside brands and people you respect, people who respect your expertise and value your ideas. It’s like a perfect circle of great ideas and commerce.

This year, I had the pleasure to invite my dear clients to a special Ruby Assembly Christmas Breakfast at Brunswick East’s Milkwood Cafe. In the past I’ve always sent holiday gifts, but this year I wanted all my clients to enjoy a beautiful breakfast in surrounds that felt kind, homely and very much like me and the spirit of my business. I also wanted them to have the chance to share what they do with one-another, as there’s always the likelihood of cross-pollination between businesses. And now that I’m all aboard the networking facilitation with my project Serious Women’s Business : Northside, this seemed a natural extension of bringing good peeps and good biz together.
We started the Ruby Assembly Christmas Breakfast early at 8:00 am in Milkwood’s gorgeous, very Frankie-magazine-esque breakfast room (no mean feat for those travelling from the southside) – and fuelled by sweet Spotify tunes, great Milkwood coffee and breakfast, celebrated a cracking year of ‘sticking it to the man’ in 2015. Here are some highlights of the event taken by our photographer Breeana Dunbar, documenting the festive, special morning.
I think this is the beginning of a Ruby Assembly tradition.
