We had the good fortune of connecting with Talia W Di Giulio and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Talia, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
When I first dived into the entrepreneurial space, I was willing to fail forward. It may not of been exactly what I wanted to be doing but I threw myself in the deep and was willing to be coach able and learn skills I yet had. Over time, it allowed me to get clearer on who I was and what I wanted to create and ultimately what I wanted to stand and be an example of! I would say the most important factor behind my success today is I stayed consistent on my vision. I knew that everyday would have me closer to either creating my own vision or building someone else’s. I was willing to stay consistent always and at 29, (shy of 30) I now live in bali with my husband and puppies, a thriving multiple six figure online business and the environment I always dreamed of. There were many road blocks along the way but I never lost sight of my vision and always held that feeling within me. So if your making any goal, vision, dream come to pass right now, stay consistent and be in the energy of those who have created the life you desire. Listen to them, watch them, learn from them- that was my secret sauce. I took advice from those who created the life I aspired to have and often it can be just that simple along the way. Letting in the right people that fill up our minds and keep us on track.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
From a young age, I grew up in the creative arts. I always knew art and my voice was my expression. I was a professional singer and dancer from the time I graduated school and then went into singing teaching BUT, I always had a desire on my heart to create a life by my own design. I moved to LA California just shy of 21 and I’d say that really was the turning point for me. I went on a massive journey of personal development and created space for who I am and what I truly wanted. Living in LA taught me so much resilience and grit. Working 3 jobs in my weeks just to get by and pay the rent. I was an Australian on a limited Visa but I was committed to my art and why I was there. Anything I did for work went back into my rent or creative classes. Acting classes, music equipment and so on. After four years in LA I returned back to Sydney Australia and that’s where my life really started to piece itself together. I explored the avenue of the online space and slowly and surely started to build my personal brand online. I saw times were changing and I understood the power of being a story teller and being able to monetise that in a powerful way. After years in the industry and always coming up short- waiting on an audition, booking a job and then doing the cycle all over again- I gave myself grace to hang up pursuing the arts BUT take my journey and really make something of it. Today I’m coming up to two years from starting my online personal branding business. I lead with who I am, share my heart, my experiences, my journey and am partnered with an online educational platform and a conscious, sustainable product with it. I saw the power of many people today all using social media. It’s not for everyone BUT when we recognise that we are all on it, I was willing to make something of it and monetise it powerfully from none other then the power of being a personal brand. Two years in this space and who I was/will always be as an artist and storyteller plays a role. I get to access my creativity everyday. I write, stand for and lead women and men from all over the world to use the online space powerfully through their own personal brand and voice, and be partnered with the most incredible platform and product our times have seen today! No more reporting to a boss or creating someone else’s vision. I took everything I am and brought it together. I birthed my podcast Queens Behaviour and Co Founded the movement The Ripple Effect and i currently live my island life in Bali. I’ve always wanted to serve and give back and today, I’ve taken my experiences and moments of failing forward and am now leading so many young artists, entrepreneurs, and people from all over to use the modern way powerfully. Fast tracking them with all I learnt in my 20s and setting people up powerfully in this modern, digital era. As a creative, I want people to know that who they are IS powerful and leading with you and your journey is incredible. That going for what’s on your heart and following that (even if sometimes it’s towards the unknown) can be the most beautiful thing you do. I was just a girl who decided to go for it and I want women and men to know that they can too!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
100% Bali! I’d welcome them in and have them get settled, and over the course of the week I’d have them do the following. • morning cacao, meditation and breath work at my favourite bali studio • a beautiful morning coffee and rice fields walk • scooter rides around the island • Soulful chats • an afternoon over looking the rice fields and swimming / maybe an ecstatic dance class. • a cheeky wine and dinner at one of many beautiful yummy places in bali to call it a night. Throughout the week, I’d take them on a day trip to Ubud and the island of Nusa Penida- where we swim in crystal waters and explore the jungle. THIS is the very trip I fell in love with when I was 15 and came to bali. I had that feeling with me for over 10 years and said one day I’d create a freedom lifestyle that this type of week would be my week always. Today- this is very much the life I live and have created. Some of my closest friends and women in business have experienced this with me and it’s on my heart to set the tone for so many more to have this!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A big part to my success is learning from mentors, teachers and facilitators that I could resonate with- and have ultimately gone on to create what I know was strong on mr heart. Seeing others achieve it made me believe it in myself. I owe a big part of my success now to The Freedom Era. The platform I am partnered with. It has taught me so much about my relationship with self, leadership, money mindset and so on. These courses and leaders were instrumental in my online business and who I’ve now become. Everything is mindset. So mastering a mindset that was going to support my life forward was key. Grateful to the teachers I’ve had along the way, both in the creative arts and fitness industry. Both these industry’s were a big part of my life for a while and I’ve taken that leadership and now embodied it into my personal brand and leading my online organisation. And my grandpa (Nonno in Italian) He always encouraged me to follow my heart!
