Interview with Leonie Dawson, author of the Goal Getter Workbooks and the romantic novella Salt

Join Leonie Dawson and myself in this conversation about her Goal Getter Workbooks, her romance novella Salt, some of her e-courses and her work as an author, artist and course creator.

Leonie Dawson is an international bestselling author, artist and online course creator. She has generated over 11 million dollars in revenue so far, selling online courses but also selling her international bestselling Goal Getter Workbooks and planners (which I have been getting and using for 5 years now!), working only 10 hours a week. She has been recognised for her business acumen as a finalist for Australian Business Woman of the Year and winner of the AusMumpreneur’s People’s Choice Business Coach. Leonie is indeed Australian and currently lives on the Sunshine Coast with her husband and their two daughters.
