Ali began her business two years ago after a personal tragedy took her on a solo journey to Indonesia.

An 8-day trip was enough for Ali to take a breath and get some much-needed inspiration.

Mum Retreats Are Go!

Ali had an epiphany after making the journey back to Melbourne from her holiday.

She decided she was going to mix her passion for taking care of mums with her passion for travel.

The ultimate Mum retreats and the muMEcations business was born.

Our favourite quote from Ali and her number one piece of advice for mumpreneurs, “Just Do it!” 

We can’t wait to share this heartfelt, fun and inspiring story with you. Ali manages part-time work, two kids and a growing travel business all at once. 

Tune in to hear how she does it without losing her mind.

She has some really practical advice for marketing and securing government grant funding as well.
