Hola! I’m Leonie Dawson. I’m absoloodely deeeeeelighted to meet you!

I’m a soul-centered teacher, author, entrepreneur, philanthropist, artist, mama, wifey + mentor to the 65,000+ women in my tribe. I created the Shining Biz + Life Academy as a beautiful, powerful sanctuary & training program for women wanting to live inspired, creative, prosperous lives and businesses.

I’m also the best-selling author + creator of the cult hit sensation – the 2016 Create Your Shining Year in Life + Biz goal workbooks + diary/planner collection which sells in over 100 countries + has a rabid, raving fanbase.

I’m a philanthropist + believer that money can change the world when used + given mindfully. I’m in the top 1% of Kiva lenders in the world, have donated over 100 000 copies of my books to charities worldwide + have helped build a school through Pencils of Promise.

I’ve been (OMG!) recognised for my business acumen with a top 6 finalist prize in MyBusiness Award for Australian Business Woman of the Year, and a finalist in Ausmumpreneur of the Year Award.

I live in Canberra, Australia, with my Scorpio soulmate Chris & our two mermaid daughters. I swear a lot + I laugh a lot. I make art + I’m a ginormous fucking hippy.

I’ve made a lot of my dreams come true. I’d be honoured to help you make yours come true too.

Moments: A Personal Sharing

Lately, I’ve been… broken apart. Vulnerable. Burnt out. Finding my way by bumping into stone. Stumbling on to my knees. And sometimes it hurts but then I think it’s easier to pray from down here.
