Let's turn your ideas
into action in your next chapter

Business Strategist & Mentor for women - Angela Raspass

Hello! I'm Angela Raspass

I’m a business owner, strategist and mentor with a powerful set of skills to help you unlock the next chapter of your business.

With a huge appetite for learning, I transform insights into practical action for my clients. I couple this with coal-face experience owning and running businesses so my advice balances practicality with creativity.

Like yours, my business journey is an evolution

After having kids, the corporate world lost its shine and I turned my marketing smarts into freelance work. My dining-room-table-business morphed into buying an office and employing a small team as my marketing agency grew, serving clients across three Australian states.

At the same time, my corporate escapee husband was unlocking his next chapter, swapping management consulting for the marine industry. The result? We are co-owners of SailTime Australia and I have a role as the Marketing Manager for Flagstaff Marine. We have five offices across three states and are the Australian Dealers for luxury yacht and power boat brands.

My current chapter

In 2012, I turned the page once more to leave agency land, a little burnt out from striving and proving myself.

From this experience, I realised what I love most is working with smart, purposeful female founders who want their businesses to make a valuable contribution, provide personal fulfilment, and deliver abundant financial rewards. Brilliant women like you.

What's unique and useful about me?

Lots of things!  At the top of the list, is the variety of service-based businesses I’ve worked with over two decades.

I’ve seen inside successful businesses, those that are just doing ok, and the ones that are struggling. I believe what sets the successful ones apart is a recipe of clarity, smart strategy and self-leadership.

What we see on the outside on websites and social platforms seldom tells the true story, so I fiercely guard my clients from falling into the Comparison Trap.

I believe in frameworks not formulas. Every business owner has unique desires, skills, experiences, strengths, values and goals that combine to form an equally unique business. We can, and should, learn from others but we need to run our own race. It's why I meet you where you are and fit the strategy to you, never the other way around.

I‘ve seen how vital it is for a business to serve its owner as much as it serves its clients and that principle always guides my work.

"Angela is smart, supportive, real, professional and holistic and she has the right balance of business knowledge and emotional support. I think we all suffer from self-doubt and a lack of skills/knowledge at stages in our lives. Working with Angela made me feel anything was possible. That I was supported and not alone on this scary and exhilarating journey".

Who and how I help

I work with women growing purposeful service-based businesses, practices, and consultancies.

My clients get in touch because they’re at a plateau or a turning point in their business. They're aware their business has untapped potential.

They're ready for growth with many great ideas, but uncertain about what to prioritise. Or they're keen on growth, but are stuck and unable to see an obvious path.

They need a sounding board and value working with someone who offers a fresh perspective to stretch their thinking, spot the gaps and opportunities to create greater impact.

As your strategic thinking partner, I facilitate the shifts from uncertainty to clarity, from reactivity to a solid strategy and from frustration to a new level of impact.

"Working together was a joy! You approached my concepts with enthusiasm, validated my efforts, contributed thoughtful, incisive comments, and allowed me to stretch and see the shape and next steps. Thanks for sharing your brilliance and deep experience with me. I'm sure so many other people are equally helped by your support and attention".

The last little snippets...

I believe connection begins with openness, and so here's a little more about me...

  • Some of my top strengths are Growth, Esteem builder, Emotional Awareness, Synthesis, Connector, Catalyst, Ideation, Improver, Activator, and Courage.
  • Being diagnosed with ADHD at 53 helps explain the super-fast, divergent and creative thinking skills that help me spot the gaps and opportunities in a business.
  • I am a voracious reader and have three books on the go at any given time on my nightstand, in my handbag, and on my audible app.
  • I achieved a bucket list goal in 2020, publishing "Your Next Chapter, Ditch your doubt, own your worth and build the business you really want".  You can order a copy here.
  • In 2006 I joined the recovery movement, closing the door on the addiction that limited my potential and self-worth. My lessons in identity shifts, self-compassion, rewiring internal narratives, and building self-belief have been invaluable
  • I'm deeply curious and a life-long learner. I've recently completed a Diploma in Positive Psychology, Strengths Profiling Accreditation and a Neuroscience and Wellbeing Certificate. I'm currently studying Vertical Stage Development and my brain is popping with the implications it has for women in business.
  • Graham and I have been married for 28 years, our son Cameron (who lives in Canberra) is 25, and our daughter Charlotte is 21. We live in beautiful Bayview on the Northern Beaches in Sydney and our family is completed by Remy, arguably the world's cutest Cavoodle.

I'm delighted you've found my world and look forward to understanding yours.
