FN: What's next for Georgie Abay & The Grace Tales?
GA: This is a big year for us. We turn five in September and if I look back at what we've achieved, I almost can't believe it. I never launched The Grace Tales as a business – it was just a hobby. I created the website because there was nothing else like it in the market and it was what I wanted to read. There was nothing out there for style-conscious mothers. There was just a lot of bad mumsy stuff out there – who wants to look mumsy?! We've profiled some extraordinary women around the world and now have editors everywhere from Singapore to LA to London. Our audience continues to grow and it's turned into a global family. We are holding our next GRACE TALKS event in Brisbane on May 16 with Dame Quentin Bryce. We're very excited about this one as she’s a woman who I have admired for years. I live by her quote "you can have it all but not all at the same time". We’re also about to launch a very, very exciting membership platform called Grace Collective. We can’t wait to share this with our community of GRACE mamas. It's a big year but when you love what you do, it never feels like work.
FN: Tell us about a typical Sunday in your household.
GA: My husband usually goes cycling on Saturday so Sunday is my chance to sleep in. Although lately I’ve been doing yoga. Juggling work and kids will often send my stress levels to an all-time high so I really need exercise to make me feel balanced and basically, to chill me out! Coffee (decaf now – I went off caffeinated coffee after listening to Dr Libby Weaver at our last GRACE TALKS event), yoga, then running around after the girls all day (in-between cleaning the house, washing, prepping lunches, etc. – #mumlife). Come Monday and I need a break!
