Introducing myself and my journal: Natasha

About Me:
Hello there
Im a 44 year old Australian.
I am the proud mother of a beautiful 5 year old boy.
I have owned a fashion business for 10 years.
My design and production facility is set up in Bali Indonesia where I live permanently now.
I employ approx 15 women full time in my business,, as well as up to 20 more who work from their homes as they either have small children and no family support or are not in good health enough to work full time.
We are a women only team.
I provide a happy and safe working environment for all those I employ...my staff are all payed above the very basic salary here and I provide an interest free loan facility to all the women when and if they need extra income.
I donate all excess fabrics from production to a doll making facility and the dolls then sell and all monies raised go to support a movement to prevent Indonesian children living and begging on the streets here in Bali. Which is sadly on the increase.
I receive and love the Womens Pulse newsletters,and I would love to support this organisation in any way I can here in Indonesia.
I am passionate about women ,their stories, their struggles and ultimately their freedom and happiness.
I look forward to hearing and sharing with all of you
with Love and in Gratitude.

My Passions:
creating beauty, sharing ,family ,friends and yoga .

My Challenges:
frustration and sadness for things that I see around me .

My Vision for the Future:
A world of peace where all live in peace,happiness and freedom.

My Areas of Expertise:
I am a great communicator ,organiser , leader and i come with a great deal of compassion.

Welcome!

Dear Natasha,

Welcome to World Pulse online community. It is a pleasure to have you with us. I am so glad to hear more about your life in Bali and the amazing work you are doing!
World Pulse is all about sustainable businesses and empowering women. May you could share with some other business owners in our community the strategies you have used to create fair employment practices and provide love and care for the community you live in.
I want to encourage you to start networking and find women who share your passion.
As I mentioned in my email, once you feel at home here, you could become a Welcomer and make sure new comers feel at home here as well.
I look forward to reading more about you in your journal soon!

Dear Natasha,

It is so great to hear from you and learn about the work you do. How great! I'm excited to know that your story can reach other business owners and entrepreneurs who will be inspired and moved to follow your lead, really caring for their workers and the health of the community they do business in. Thank you for reaching out and sharing your story--I'm sure your voice will have real impact and improve many more women's lives.

I can relate to your passion for "creating beauty." I love it! What a noble way to live. And to be a person of compassion too. I am inspired. I am grateful to you for choosing to live in this way, and I want to live in this way too.

In case you haven't seen it, the "Getting Started Guide" can help you learn how to navigate the website and network with others: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

Welcome, Natasha! I hope to read more from you in the days to come!

With gratitude,

Susan
