Meet Amy & Jodie

The heads and hearts
behind The 7 Effect

Amy and Jodie met at work in 2007 and instantly became friends. Over the years their lives have unfolded in an uncanny parallel of ups and downs and the synchronicity they share is what makes them such great friends and a formidable business team!

Amy is the “method” as she brings a practical and systematic approach to business, while Jodie brings the “madness” with her creative spirit and unconventional approach to leadership and life design.

Jodie and Amy’s 7 Effect journey began as a response to (let’s be honest) a shitty time in life. In 2009 they both experienced tragedy in their personal lives. Amy lost her father and not long after Jodie’s Papa passed away, and not long before that they both had long term relationships fall apart, and both had to find their financial feet quickly and make some massive changes in life.

It wasn’t always easy and in keeping with the “let’s be honest” theme their first reaction to this “shitty time” was to escape to the bar to drink vodka all night and dance until the sun came up… not a bad survival strategy, however they soon realised that if they wanted things to change and they really wanted to live an amazing life… they had to change!

“The 7 Effect was born out of a desire to make our lives better in every way… We wanted less stress, and more fun, we wanted more time to spend with the people we love and more money to live life as an adventure. Ultimately we started the business to do less wishing and more achieving!”

The Goals Club

Things started to come together after Jodie invited a group of friends to her place one Saturday afternoon to talk about the possibility of forming a regular goals club. Nearly 7 years later the Goals Club is still going strong and it has become the back bone of the business as well as a forum for many members to achieve their goals and turn once whimsical wishes into life changing realities.

In 2014 the Goals Club opened for the first time to the general public and takes place on the last Saturday of each month.

“Getting focused and sharing our goals with friends has made a miraculous difference in our lives. We got much more done, we had more fun and we discovered what we really want out of life!”

Balance can be a bitch!

Let’s not get stressed about trying to find balance… we can find a way to love what you do, and celebrate who you are!

The “work life balance” movement sought to increase wellbeing by balancing out the hours we spend in each. Great things like flexible work hours, job sharing and work from home arrangements saw an increase. The problem however was exhaustion from not switching off and the psychological barriers between work and life increased dramatically.

Striving for a completely balanced life is a sure fire way to increase stress, pressure and guilt. The goal is not to start resenting your day job, but instead start designing a future that has you playing to your strengths and pursuing your passions.

Anyone can do it, and for most people the hardest part is just getting started – that’s why we work with people to create plans that are completely congruent with who you are and what you value.

If you feel stuck, in a rut or just unsure which direction to take or what passion to pursue then you are in the right place!
