She launched Collective Hub as a print magazine in 2013, with no experience in an industry that people said was either dead or dying. Collective Hub has since grown into an international multimedia business and lifestyle platform with multiple verticals across print, digital, events and education – all of which serve to ignite human potential.</div><div>Five years and 52 issues into the print magazine Lisa made the courageous move to “break” the very thing that she started – the print magazine – enabling her to take some time and space to evolve into the next iteration and again disrupt… watch this space.</div><div>Lisa is an international speaker, best-selling author, and an authority on disruption in both the corporate sector and the start-up scene. Lisa’s experience in publishing has seen her produce over 400 custom-published books for companies and individuals as well as having authored and co-authored 24 herself.</div><div>Most notably, Lisa chartered her ride to success with her bestselling book Daring &#38; Disruptive: Unleashing the Entrepreneur and its sequels Life &#38; Love: Creating the Dream, which reached number-one on Booktopia; Money &#38; Mindfulness: Living in Abundance, that shot to best-selling status within the first month; Breakups &#38; Breakthroughs: Turn an Ending Into a Beginning and Purpose soon followed.</div><div>Her passion is to challenge individuals and corporations to get out of their comfort zones, find their purpose, change the way they think, and to prove there’s more than one way to do anything. She encourages creativity, innovation, and an entrepreneurial spirit, and lives life to the absolute max. Most mornings she wakes up and pinches herself at how incredible her life is, but is also acutely aware and honest about life’s bumps and tumbles along the way.</div><div>With fans including Sir Richard Branson and New York Times best-selling author Bradley Trevor Greive, and a loyal fan base, Lisa’s vision is to build a community of like-minded people who want to change the world.</div><div><br /></div><div>www.collectivehub.com</div><div><br /></div><div>If you're a business owner and you're still open and own a cafe, restaurant, take away store or you're a personal trainer, head to www.mentoredmedia.com and grab the best social media pack to ever to promote your business on socials.</div><div><br /></div><div> </div>
