Heroes are an inspiring group of people, every one of them from the larger than life comic book heroes you see on the big silver screen, the everyday heroes that let us live the privileged lives we do. Every hero has a story to tell, the doctor saving lives at your local hospital, the war veteran down the street, who risked his life for our freedom to the police officers and the firefighters who risked their safety to ensure ours every hero is special and every story worth telling. But there was one class of heroes that I think is often ignored the entrepreneur, the creator, the producer, the ones who look at the problems in this world and think to themselves, you know what I can fix that I can help people I can make a difference. And they go out and do exactly that by creating a new product or introducing a new service. Some go on to change the world, others make a world of difference to their customers. Welcome to the Hero Show. Join us as we pull back the masks on the world’s finest hero preneurs and learn the secrets to their powers their success and their influence. So you can use those secrets to attract more sales, make more money and experience more freedom in your business. I’m your host, Richard Matthews, and we are on in 3…2…1…
Richard Matthews 1:52
Hello, and welcome back to the Hero Show. My name is Richard Matthews. And today I have, I want to make sure I can get this name correct is Oriane Juncker. Is that correct?
Oriane Juncker 2:01
Richard Matthews 2:03
Awesome. I’m glad I got that right on the first try. But Oriane, thank you so much for coming in. And being a part of the Hero Show today. Where are you calling in from?
Oriane Juncker 2:13
I’m calling in from Australia, where the weather is pretty amazing. And we are pretty excited to be connected to other parts of the world. Because we’ve been isolated for the past year and a half now.
Richard Matthews 2:26
Yeah, I can imagine. For those of you who are following along with our travels while we’re recording this podcast. My wife and I are in Florida right now. And it’s raining on us a lot, because it’s apparently hurricane season in Florida. And that’s when we decided to come visit was hurricane season.
Oriane Juncker 2:42
Best idea ever.
Richard Matthews 2:44
Yeah. So what I want to do real quick is for my guests who don’t know who you are, or for my audience who doesn’t know who you are. You’re my guest, I’ll get my words right eventually, is do a brief introduction, so they know who you are. So Oriane is a highly ambitious and passionate entrepreneur, loving mom of two boys with an amazing husband that fits somewhere into your busy life. You’re born in France, and you currently live in Sydney, Australia. And you started a company named Spotz, which is a marketplace for moms to share their products and their services with other moms and the community. Is that sound about right?
Oriane Juncker 3:18
Yeah, that sounds about right.
Richard Matthews 3:21
Awesome. So what I want to have you do to start off with is tell me a little bit about what it is that you do with Spotz and who you do it for and sort of what the main products and services are?
Oriane Juncker 3:32
Yep, easy. So I think what is interesting to start with is why I created my business initially. So I’m working in the pharmaceutical industry, I work in medical neuroscience. So it’s an interesting job I work with a big corporate Big Pharma. And we talk a lot about that pharma at the moment. But when I ended up being pregnant, I suffered from discrimination. To the extent we can’t imagine really, I think it was more out of stupidity that I was suffering the type of comments where, oh, you have to go to your doctor to be allowed to travel beyond 30 weeks that is normally allowed by airlines. And so I was asked to travel up to 76 weeks when I was traveling every week initially. And I was like, but I can’t do that, seriously, I look like a whale. I don’t fit on the plane anymore. It’s just really hard. And then I ended up having problems because I refuse to go beyond those allowed 30 weeks by the airline. And then I started to also receive comments when I came back from Mat leave, saying that I didn’t deserve a promotion or pay rise because I was in hibernation when I was in Mat Leave and I was like, what in hibernation? Seriously. So when you’re mother people like corporates consider you a bit of a problem. And I was still paid 30k less than my husband when we finished our studies together. And when we actually did this exactly the same study and started to work in the pharma at the same time and we’re doing the same job, exact the same job in the same pharma. And I was like, why is my husband being paid 30k more than I am. So that gender equality is not really perfect at the moment in Australia. And I got very frustrated with that. And when I started to talk with my friends, I realized that when we got pregnant, the problem got even bigger. And we were all frustrated and talking that at some point, it was like, I think we need to do something about it. And that’s when I had the idea of Spotz and Spotz is called Spotz because of the Spotz on the back of the ladybird, because the Lady Bird is a symbol of freedom in a woman. And at some point, I was like, okay, so I want to create that community of women who say what they want to see a change in the society and has enough power to influence policymakers so that we can create a more man-friendly society. And the thing is that people just don’t follow you, because you’ve got a great idea. You know, you need to create something so that they start being attracted. And that’s when I was like, Okay, one of the main problems is being able to work and having young children when you’re a woman. And that’s why I actually created the marketplace where moms can sell their services, and their products online. And this way, it allows them to earn money on their own terms, instead of being blocked with the corporate hours and corporate expectations. So that was the idea, actually, the marketplace right now is sort of an excuse to gather those women so that later on, we can be a lobby group, and be able to influence all governments. So that’s the whole idea of Spotz and where it came from.
Richard Matthews 6:46
That’s an incredible story and how you started that and got into it. And so you are using Spotz as a marketplace, for women to help earn an income, right? And it’s interesting, because it fits right into the new sort of way the economy is moving, especially post-pandemic, where more and more people are able to work remotely. And the corporate space is, I would say, almost like losing a lot of power. Because people are realizing they don’t need to be in the same place at work in the same places. And so you’re working with moms to show them how to earn an income while they’re at home. Which is cool. So when it comes to the breadth of services that your mom’s and stuff are offering, is it like, craft projects, like the kind of stuff you’d see on Etsy as well as professional services, or is it like a whole mix of stuff? Do you see a skew one way or the other?
Oriane Juncker 7:39
Yeah, so actually, it’s a bit of a mix of stuff. It’s not like Etsy, where they initially specialized in handcraft and vintage. For me, it’s whatever mums have to sell, they can sell it on the marketplace, because I just want to help them earn money without any constraints of like, oh, no, sorry, you’re selling that type of product, you’re not allowed. It’s more like the mom’s spirit. So whatever you selling, you’re welcome on the platform, unless it’s sexual services or anything like that because we’re open-minded, but to a certain extent.
Richard Matthews 8:10
Try to pull the rules.
Oriane Juncker 8:10
So yeah. Try to pull the rules a little bit, to not get spotted straight away. So yeah, I guess it’s really to help the community of moms, and I don’t mind what they’re doing. And that’s why we are actually right now developing the service section. Because initially, when we develop the product, I was like, the best probably rejecting 50% of other moms who are selling services, coaching, doing consulting or communication services, etc. And that’s why I’m developing the other part. Spotz is a bit of an Etsy, it’s like, a bit more broad, and also with the service on top. And actually, one thing you were talking about with the corporate way that is a bit backward, almost, and I was always fascinated with Uber, I was just like, this is pretty amazing what they’ve created because they’ve created a new way of thinking a new way of living, people can actually work whenever they want to, instead of having those times they need to fit in. And I really think that is pretty amazing. And I think it was always something in the background. And when I had that idea, I was like, oh, actually, now understanding goes into that way of thinking that we need to have some freedom when earning money and that we don’t need to depend on a boss. Because I think yeah, this is a bit of backward thinking to have the boss paying for you giving them your life pretty much or your time. And I really like the fact you can re-empower people so that they can earn money on their own terms. So that’s the whole idea of Spotz.
Richard Matthews 9:45
Yeah so is the marketplace, has it become international already, or are you guys still mostly in Australia, how is that how’s that growth looking?
Oriane Juncker 9:52
So we started this year in February and it’s now developed in Australia and New Zealand. But the aim is to go very quickly for some funding rounds. And I want to do equity crowdfunding because it really goes with that mentality of supporting other mums and that mums are owning the marketplace. And we’re kind of empowered to change our future owning a part like a share of Spotz. So we’re going for a round of equity crowdfunding at the end of the year. And the aim is to go to the US pretty quickly and to French countries as well because it’s obviously much easier when you’re from the country to understand what the market is like. But yeah, the US is a big market, because I think there is so much to change. When I was reading a bit about the maternity leave in the US is just horrendous, women don’t have time with their children, it’s pretty much you give birth, and you throw your kid in a daycare, and you go back to work, and, it makes me really sad. And I think there’s a lot to change in the US. And that’s why it’s a country I’m really interested in, even if it might be a very difficult one.
Richard Matthews 11:02
Absolutely. So just out of curiosity, I assume the primary language in Australia is English. And in France, it’s not it’s French are you gonna have to like figure out how to build the app and the whole services to be translatable? When you start moving into countries like France and other places in Europe that don’t speak English is as their first language?
Oriane Juncker 11:24
Yeah, that’s going to be a pain, really, I’m pretty well aware of that. But the aim is to go to every country in the world. And I think the way I’ll do it, is probably to have translators translating all the content and also readapting. It’s what we do in pharma as well, you know, you have the global strategy coming from global and then you have to adapt it to your country. And it’s pretty much what I will do. So yeah, the headquarter will be Australia. And then in other countries, you can pretty much you know, all the content, the videos, the written blog, etc, I think we’ll have translators doing all that, and also have a CEO in the country. So who can actually really manage the whole thing in a very French way, because I don’t want it to be only a translation of Australia, because I think then it loses its soul, because the whole purpose in each country is going to be different, because it’s different regulations, different laws, and, people are just having cultural differences. So you need to adapt to that if you want to be successful. Otherwise, if it’s just a copy and paste of Australia, it might be not relevant for the country I’m trying to develop in.
Richard Matthews 12:31
Yeah, and it’s a really interesting thing to be thinking about at the beginning of your company is thinking, How do I set this up? So it’s ready for a global strategy that we’re going to be starting really soon? Not everyone, businesses is that way where they’re starting having to think about the whole global network. So it’s fascinating that you’re starting there. And looking and planning to be a global company, right from the outset.
Oriane Juncker 12:52
Yeah, so I think it might be a bit of a pretentious way of seeing it, but my company was never meant to be on the Australian, I was always having a big vision. Probably not, like the best self-confidence to have that big vision initially, because everything goes back to self confidence always. But I could only envision Spotz being a place for Moms of the world to be able to express themselves. So it has to be a strong movement. And if you want to be strong, you must not only be in one country. My vision was always International, and it’s much more fun and much more exciting.
Richard Matthews 13:32
Yeah, that’s a big vision. You gotta shoot for the stars, right?
Oriane Juncker 13:36
Richard Matthews 13:36
So, what I want to talk about then is your superpowers that you bring to this company. So every iconic hero has superpowers, whether that’s a fancy flying suit made by their genius intellect, or, super strength or the ability to call it on Thunder from the sky. Hero preneurs have what I call a zone of genius, which is either a skill or a set of skills that you were born with, or developed over time, that you can bring to bear in your market. The things that help you slay the villains in your client’s world. And the way that I like to think about this is if you look at all the skills that you’ve developed over time, you probably have a common thread that ties all those skills together. And that’s where you find your superpower. So with that framing, what do you think your superpower is, in building developing this business?
Oriane Juncker 14:24
I think everything I hated before I realized that it’s actually my strength now. It is very funny, everything I was rejecting, like, oh, I’ll never write I hate writing. I hate politics. I’ll never go into politics. And look what I’m creating. It’s sort of a community where I have to write regularly, to talk to express myself, my ideas. And I will have to go and work with politicians at some point if we want to be able to do what we’re planning on doing. So I realized that my strength is actually communication because I have passion. And the fact that I’m a bit clumsy as well. Sometimes in the way, I see things give me a bit of the raw persona that people are like, okay, she’s not polished and perfect, she’s like me. And I think this is my strength because people can relate to me easily. And I am in the truth like I communicate the truth, and I don’t care what people think. So sometimes I’m too blunt, more, especially for Australians or Americans or like the English culture, like, I’m extremely blunt and people look at me like, Whoa, she’s a bit too much. But if I want to change things, that’s what I have to be. So yeah, I think it’s my way of communicating that is all about saying the truth. I’ve grown up now, initially, I was a bit raw and people were a bit shocked when I was saying things, I’ve understood that there is a way of saying what you want to say, and that’s making the difference. So yeah, I would say my genius is going to be communication and getting people trying to follow me and I started, you need to really work and people are getting on the journey with me, and initially, it was like, it’s never gonna happen. But I just trust that at some point, the universe would align, and come with me. So yeah, communication, and also the fact that I have an international background, it allows me as well, to have an open mind and to really understand all those cultural differences. So it’s going to be my strength, probably, if I want to develop internationally at some point. But also, I think, one thing as well as sort of the healer thing, I guess, and the spiritual aspect of my life that can be of interest to people I realize, like, a lot of people tell me Oh, my God, you should be a coach, or, like, you’re listening to people and I grab their problem and very easily find solutions. Or, it’s usually people talking to me. And because they can relate probably, I don’t know, it’s always been something very easy for me. And the fact I’m quite spiritual, I usually bring a sort of perspective, that is different from the very physical type of advice you can get very often with most people, and every time like, I have friends, they don’t call me for two years. And when they have a big problem in their life, I would be the first person that would call. And I was always thinking, that’s very weird. It always happens with all my friends. So I think, it’s that vision, a bit beyond the barriers of the physical world that is quite attractive as well, too, for some people.
Richard Matthews 17:21
Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. And so if communication is the superpower, and you have these goals to be a force in each country that you operate in, you’re gonna have to work on replicating that into other people who are going to help you run this organization. And you’re gonna have to build people up. Have you already started that? What’s the plan there? And how do you find other people that have the same passion that you have to grow this to sort of have the international impact you’re looking for?
Oriane Juncker 17:52
So I have ideas already of some people as could be the people working in some countries I want to develop in, I haven’t told them yet, though, so I’m not gonna say the name. Let’s keep it quiet. But I think it really comes down to the woman network. It’s amazing. Like in Australia, I don’t know if it exists in US, but we have like minded bitches who drink wine. And it’s an amazing network of women of bitches and discussing business. And it’s really amazing because every time you were looking for someone to hire you just saying, hey, I’m looking for blah, blah and you get like, 100 of women replying and be interested in working with you, and I don’t know, straight away, when I talk to someone, I just know whether they fit or not with this boss mentality. And sometimes I can’t explain, and it’s very irrational. It’s just an energetic thing. I just feel their energy is going to fit. And sometimes I meditate on it, is she the right person to come and join? And I get the answer very quickly. So it’s my way of doing those kinds of things. I am sometimes not really relying on the very physical and pragmatic, irrational to hire someone, I just meditate, and I get a yes or no, is very clear. And I just follow that. And some people around me sometimes don’t really understand why I do things. And my husband is the first one. So I just don’t understand why you’re doing this, It’s not logical. And I’m like, sometimes you have to follow the heart. And when I meditate, it’s what I see. So it’s what I’m going to do. Now my husband starts understanding my way of working and it seems that it made its proof. So he’s getting used to it. But yeah, it’s not easy to make people understand that.
Richard Matthews 19:40
Yeah, and it’ll have a tremendous impact on your growth is getting the right people to really help you buy into what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. So it’ll be interesting to see how that impacts your growth as you guys become international and end up in the US because I know my wife has a bunch of things that she would love to start offering. She’s in the process now of she’s just picked up a new skill where she got her first commission like mural, which was super cool. She got to do that. And I was like, we need to be able to market that especially we’re travelling the US, sounds like the Spotz would be a great marketplace to be able to do that. So I look forward to seeing your launch in the US.
Oriane Juncker 20:21
Yeah, it might be another year, though. But I’m planning on getting there. It’s really important for me to the US thing. I don’t know why it was the first country where I was like, I want to go there before France. So next year, hopefully, I’ll get there.
Richard Matthews 20:35
It is a huge market, it’s one of the biggest markets in the world. So it’s a good place to go.
Oriane Juncker 20:44
Exactly. But I will be competing with the headquarter of Etsy. So that will be a tough one. But I see opportunities everywhere. That means people are already used to that type of buying that type of putting their products on Etsy, so why not join Spotz on the side? It might be an opportunity for me that Etsy is so well implanted in the country already.
Richard Matthews 21:08
Richard Matthews 21:08

Richard Matthews 22:39
So I want to talk about the flip side then of your superpowers if your superpower is the communication and the ability to read people’s energies and connect like that, the flip side of that is the fatal flaw. So just like every Superman has their kryptonite, or Wonder Woman has her bracelets of victory that she can’t remove without going mad, you probably have something you struggled within your business. For me, it was a couple of things that I struggled with. I struggled with perfectionism for a long time, which means I never shipped product. I also struggled with lack of self care, which really showed up in letting my clients walk over me and not having good boundaries and not really letting my time have boundaries and letting my time walk all over me. And those kinds of things I had to learn to overcome so I could continue to grow my business. So in your business growth, what is one of the fatal flaws that you’ve had to struggle through? And more importantly, how have you worked to overcome it so that you can continue to grow?
Oriane Juncker 23:29
Self confidence without any doubt. I think it comes down to education in France is all about can do better. Like you have 18 out of 20 can do better. I’ve been raised in those Catholic schools a bit old-fashioned.
Richard Matthews 23:45
Okay, I wanted to move on a little bit in a conversation and talk a little bit about your mentors, And we talk on the show all the time, every hero has their mentors, just like Frodo had Gandalf or Luke had Obi Wan or Robert Kiyosaki had his Rich Dad or even Spider Man who had his Uncle Ben, Who were some of your heroes were they real life mentors, speakers or authors, maybe peers who were a couple of years ahead of you, and how important were they to what you have accomplished in your business so far?
Oriane Juncker 24:09
I think one that I really love, it’s Greta Thunberg. Because she goes beyond the norms. She goes beyond what people think. Imagine she’s just a kid. And she sat down there in front of the Parliament in Stockholm. Because she was so strong with our idea. I love people who have such a strong purpose and hard driven to the core to make it happen. I think they are the people who are going to change the world. And I love those people who don’t care what people think about them, she just doesn’t care at all. She just does what she has to do what she came here for, and nothing will steer her away from that. And I admire her for that and I hope I can be that person. Even if obviously there is always that self confidence piece and the fear of judgements from others that there’s always going to be a bit of a limit. But when I look at those people who went above and beyond, and not caring about what people were saying, or the impact it had on their lives, I just admire that. And I think Gandhi was really one of those, it started in India, it started in Africa, where he was fighting for a cause already, you know, like, he was that little lawyer coming from India, and then you realise, I don’t remember exactly what the cause was in there. But it was obviously always about racism. And he just stood up, suddenly, his purpose, lighten up, and he was that strong person, and nothing could stop him. And I think it’s what I admire and is what I intend to become, nothing can stop me in my mission to help those women to empower women for a better world. And, yeah, I would say, Greta Thunberg, she is my big idol at the moment.
Richard Matthews 26:04
Awesome. And I love that I love the idea of just looking at people who have pushed beyond the limits that people put on them. And Greta Thunberg is absolutely one of those people. And I know she’s like a divisive force. Not a lot of people agree with what she has to say, or how she says it, but she did it anyway. And that’s a powerful story. It’s a good place to be a good person to look up to. So my next question for you is about your guiding principles. One of the things that make heroes heroic is that they live by a code. For instance, Batman never kills his enemies, he only ever puts them in Arkham Asylum. So as we get to the end of this interview, I want to talk about the top one, maybe two principles that you live your life by, that really inform how you run Spotz.
Oriane Juncker 26:55
Yeah, there is one and I guess it comes down to spirituality. Try to do things with love. I believe in karma and everything you giving to the world is what you’re going to get back. Everything is energy in a world and it’s a question of vibration. So if you sending low vibration to the world, the world always has a question of balance, if you’re sending shit to the world is what you’re going to get back. And always trying to work from a love space is never easy. Because it’s not hard being raised and you have that by default setting where you try to protect yourself sometimes, and that judgments that comes back, but I try to go back to that loving space, because it’s what’s going to be the key to everything for all world. And it looks like a bit of a naive thing we need to love everyone. No, no, it’s not that, but I think everything you’re trying to do has to come from a heart space. And it is something I wanted to say as well we spot every single communication we have with our vendor, like we are communicating always nicely and trying to be supportive and be there for the month, and they give it back 1000 times. This is just my number one rule. And it’s what I tell when people start working with me when you’re writing, write with love, it has to be nice, it has to be lovely always because it’s what you’re sending to the world. And you have to be very careful with what you thinking and what you sending, because it is the world you’re creating for yourself, your thoughts, and everything you think is going to be creating your world. So you have to be very, very careful about your thoughts and judgments. Anger is something that you are going to manifest for yourself as well if it’s what you’re throwing out there. So that’s my number one thing that everything I tried to do, I tried to do it from that space. But I have to confess when I have people who comment to you, you putting your guts on the table, your soul on the table, and you have those people who writing very aggressively. And I’m like, my first reaction is like, you bitch, you just go very mad, and I’m like going back to the loving space. Ruby is an amazing person I’m working with and she’s a bit older and probably a bit wiser sometimes, and every time she tells me, but you have to understand her she’s probably writing this aggressively because she’s homeschooling right now, and she’s overwhelmed. And that’s why she’s writing those things, and you have to understand where she’s coming from. But I’m like, the cheese reader, you go into that very judgmental and reactive mentality and I tried to step back and usually I’m like, Ah, she’s right again. And so it’s going back to that loving space where I’m like, Okay, I understand what type of help and support do you need? Instead of like you bitch, which would be my first reaction. So yeah, I think stepping back, and going back to that loving space.
Richard Matthews 30:19
So you just have to write the mean response, and then delete it, and then write the loving ones,
Oriane Juncker 30:25
Yeah, you still need to get it out of your system, otherwise, you get frustrated. So yeah, but I have my You Bitch moment, going like that for half an hour. And one of the big advice I was told to incorporate is that never write an email when you’re angry, never. Always wait the day after, because otherwise, you send something in you’ll regret it big time. And it is what I’m trying to apply as well, with my business,
Richard Matthews 30:53
Yeah and I love the idea of operating from a place of love, and that you get back what you give. I went to school as a preacher. So I studied the scripture a lot. And this quote a lot, it’s the Sermon on the Mount from Jesus. And he talks about, give first and you shall receive. And I always thought that people, a lot of times think that’s like a commandment from God, that first, you give, then you receive, and I’m like, I don’t think that was a commandment, I thought what he was doing on a sermon on the mount is, he was telling you, this is how the world works. This is the operating system of the earth. And part of that operating system is you get back what you give. And so it wasn’t a commandment, as much as it was, here’s how the world works. And do with that information, what you will. So I think learning to operate from that place of love is a great place to start. Because you’re giving back. And you’ve already said, you get it back in your business.
Oriane Juncker 31:48
Yeah. And I love the fact you’ve been a preacher before, it’s very original, studying preaching is not something you see everyday, I just love it. But I think it comes down, like what you saying, what Jesus was saying, it’s actually one of the universal law, and I base my life on those universal law and the main one is the law of attraction. And you attract what you thinking, you attract what you’re giving, it’s just the law of attraction, everything works, abide by that law. And I think it’s a shame that in our world, people are not being taught those things. So at school, I was taught so much bullshit that I will never use, but I was not taught all those spiritual laws, which are not binded, to any religion or anything. It’s just how the universe works. That’s how it works. And when you understand it, you can actually work with it, and make it work your own way. And the law of attraction, it can actually go and be used in so many different ways. But one thing is like, if you think in visualize what you want to manifest, it will manifest because your thoughts are manifesting in your world because it’s the law of attraction. So if you think enough of your dreams, like it’s going to happen, but you have to believe it. And I can tell you, it’s happening. So for me, it has always worked always, and in a way that is just miraculous sometimes. And I think people should know about those rules because they are what’s guiding their lives. And sometimes they just don’t understand you see people saying things, and I’m just like, if you knew about the universal law, you would never say that. And it would probably change your life, but we were never taught those things.

As long as you’re pairing the visualization law of attraction with actually going out and doing the work, everything starts working together and really helping you move forward. So that basically brings us to the end of our interview. But I do finish every interview with a simple challenge. I call it the hero’s challenge. And it is just a way for me to find stories that I might not otherwise find. Because not everyone’s looking to be out on podcasts. So the question is simple. Do you have someone in your life in your network? And I imagined you do because of what you do, that has a cool entrepreneurial story? Who are they? First names are fine and why do you think they should come to share their story with us here on the hero show?
Oriane Juncker 34:06
Priscilla Chand. I would say her because she’s been giving, giving, giving without trying to get anything in return. Because she believes in a code that is similar to mine, that women should have more space in this world. And she created Hire Her. And this is a platform where women hire each other. And I find it pretty cool. And she’s helped me above and beyond. I’m just thinking that’s amazing. Because she’s not even getting any Commission on the work she’s doing. She’s just doing it because she believes women should have more place in this world. And so she’s trying to offer them the stage to be themselves into exists more in this world. And so I think she would definitely be a person that you want to interview.
Richard Matthews 34:57
Absolutely. We’ll reach out afterwards to see if we can get an introduction and get her on the show. But at the end of any comic book, there’s always the crowd of people who are standing and cheering and clapping for the acts of heroism are analogous to that on this show, is I want to know where can people find you? Where can they find Spotz? How can they join the marketplace? How can they help with the mission? And where can they light up the bat signal so to speak, and say, Hey, you know what Oriane, I would really love to be a part of what you’re doing, I think more important than where it is that they can go is who are the right types of people to reach out and actually become a part of what you’re doing.
Oriane Juncker 35:29
And easy. My platform is Spotz.com.au, spotz SPOTZ, and we are on social media at Spotz for mums, Facebook and Instagram. And there is an email and contact details where you can reach out to me on the platform, and you’re most welcome to join as a vendor or as a mom who wants to bring content, whether it’s video content, which we will do very soon on social media, or whether it’s written content on the blog series, which were released every month. So yeah, there’s multiple ways. And you know what, we’re very open to ideas. So if you think that my platform could actually integrate some of your idea of developing a course, to help woman or anything, you know what, come up with that idea, write me an email. And, and I’ll be very happy to actually integrate you. If your idea fits the the general Spotz idea. And things have been happening like that, people came to me, and I was like, I don’t know what we can do together. But if you leave the door open, it’s amazing. Like you realise, people come to you, and they don’t even know why they coming. And you’re just wondering what the hell they’re doing here. And there’s always something amazing that comes out of it. And so yeah, don’t hesitate to reach out even if you don’t know why we’ll find a way to probably work together. Because if you feel we have to reach out, it means you have to, and there’s something that’s going to happen out of it.

Awesome, thank you very much for coming on and sharing your story today Oriane. I really appreciate it. Any final words of wisdom for my audience before I hit this stop record button?
Oriane Juncker 37:57
I would say stop limiting yourself this is shit. Put it in the bin and start realizing your dream. I know it’s easy to say but just please do it like the world needs people with the vision and with dreams.
Richard Matthews 38:09
