Sharon Gallardo San Martin

I established my business in May, 2016 and am proud of the strong start I have had. I sell the Arbonne product range, through either one on one meetings with clients or through group presentations. 

Alternatively I can provide guidance to anyone interested in building their own successful business through access to the Arbonne Network. 

There are over 450 Arbonne product lines, including skin care, nutrition, detox, cosmetics, weight management, personal care, baby products, sunscreen etc. What I love about Arbonne is the products are better, safer and healthier.

I have recently joined the CCBWN to meet like-minded people. People that are driven and excited about what life can offer. I hope being a part of this network helps me to expand my own business network and help with furthering my professional and personal development.

Janice Lynn

After relocating to Mission Beach, I established my business, lynIN interior planning | design | coordination in 2014.  As a designer with 20 years experience in a range of commercial fitout, hospitality and multi residential interior design projects and working in national and multi disciplinary architectural design firms, lynIN was created as a boutique studio.

My aim has been to provide both design excellence and a professional design service to clients in the Cassowary Coast and far north Queensland regions. A collaborative and process focussed approach with clients provides a platform from which to create distinct, responsive, functional and dynamic environments for living and working.

Working solo, after being part of a team environment for so many years, I became a member of the CCBWN two years ago with my prime motive to seek opportunities to network with other local business women.  What I found was an organisation and members that provide a supportive environment and opportunities to drill into the what, why and how of my business in a constructive and relaxed atmosphere.

Meet & Greet - Mission Beach/Kurrimine Beach

kerryn thompson

Hello my name is Kerryn Thompson. I have lived in Melbourne all my life. Up until fairly recently I thought that would continue. I have been employed by Bendigo and Adelaide bank for more than 20 years. During that time I have worked in many different roles, including the branch network, Branch State Support area; and Business Banking.

Last year I started to look for new possibilities. I was sick of the grind of traveling, and the cold, cold Melbourne winters. When looking at the internal job vacancies this wonderful opportunity floated over the computer screen - Branch Manager at Mission Beach in Far North Queensland. From there it started a chain of events and a journey which has led my husband and I to relocate to beautiful Mission Beach.
