Game Changers Share Advice: ‘What We’d Tell Our Younger Selves’

What Makes A Game Changer?

Jan 23, 2018

Our latest Game Changers share thoughts and advice which helped steer them in the right direction. All of them are from our new series of Game Changers with our new host Channel Seven’s Edwina Bartholomew.

First up is Louise Troen from Bumble, the women’s social networking site putting the power back into women’s hands.

Louise Troen from Bumble

Bumble quickly had women making the first move, one million times each day.

Louise Troen tells Edwina how the platform has grown organically to include other forms of connecting, the philosophy has continued to be one of ‘women supporting women’ under an umbrella of kindness, respect and integrity.

With female users of the dating app discovering there were so many like-minded people on the platform, they called for a community where friendships are created and Bumble BFF was born! User demand struck again when those friendships started generating business connections and Bumble Bizz became the spot to expand your network and make empowering career moves.

Christine Kinninmonth, co-founder of Fertile Mind

In this Game Changers interview with Channel Seven’s Edwina Bartholomew, Fertile Mind co-founder Christine Kinninmonth explains how she asked everyone and anyone for advice and help when she first started out. “In fact, my manufacturer came from me telling my hairdresser I couldn’t find a manufacturer, and he said ‘Oh, I’ve got a cousin who does something like that’, and that’s how I kicked it off.”

Christine’s first ever invention, BellyBelt®, came from her Earth-friendly mantra of Refuse, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle.

Fertile Mind’s range now includes ethical Fair Trade, environmentally-friendly, organic and sustainable products for mindful mothers. Breastfeeding and baby-wearing are core to this mindfulness, and so the range includes nursing pillows to help with correct breastfeeding attachment, and the iconic Hug-a-Bub baby carrier, described in media as a “must have cult product for mums”.
