The This Business Life team creates business doers. We inspire and educate small business owners to be more than they thought they could be and achieve success they’ve only dreamed of.
We can help you bridge the gap between what you know and what you need to know to be a truly successful business.
Raels uses her extensive practical experience and creativity to offer you your own business mentor, ideas generator, and someone to ask all those questions you can’t ask anywhere else. Her business and design advice have been long sought-after by those trying to make it in the business world, and now Raels is ready to help you with your business.
Raels is a strategist and entrepreneur who has been working with clients for over 25 years to deliver some amazing award-winning projects through her digital agency Mettro. In fact, Raels picked up the Australian Institute of Management Award for Brisbane Region Owner Manager of the Year.
She is a gifted creative director and a design visionary with an eye for originality. And she has an unholy obsession with content of all shapes and sizes, from inspiring articles and engaging home pages to emails that make you click and calls-to-action that make you act.
She loves the high of setting and achieving big goals. Raels has conquered the Kokoda Trail, trekked Vietnam, and has become a sought after public speaker, and now she is trying to master the art of wrangling twin boys without losing her mind – her greatest challenge by far.
Adam is one of the most clever and creative problem solvers in the industry, and he has a string of awards and recognition to prove it. This, along with his incredible grasp of the relationship between design and technology, ensures he can quickly fix any technical issue we can throw at him. And we should know; we throw a lot.
Adam is passionate about user experience in the truest sense – and not just because it’s trendy. He knows the ins and outs of user behaviours, what makes them tick, what turns them off.
He loves to share his knowledge on all things UX to help businesses better understand who their customers are and what they want and need online.
Barely a week goes by that Adam doesn’t have some kind of bike part or paraphernalia delivered to the office to feed into his voracious appetite for all things bike-related. We’ve tried to get him to stop but he’s stuck in a vicious cycle.
We know you will find something that helps you on our site. And we’d love you to keep in touch…we’re keen to hear about the issues affecting your business, how you do things, your successes.
