How multiple careers led Julie to web development

In this episode of the She Will Shine podcast Danielle chats to Julie Allen. Julie is the Founder of Biz Yourself, a creative WordPress website studio based in Melbourne.


Working from a young age, Julie dreamed of running her own business since she was 5 years old. She’s now worked for herself for over 20 years alongside growing a family and mental health challenges.

Our conversation includes:

• her career path from Girl Friday, Accountant, Mortgage Broker, Craft Entrepreneur to Web Developer
• how she started her first business while on maternity leave
• how she backed herself when changing careers
• the different challenges in service and product businesses
• the importance of balancing a flexible business with family
• her struggle with anxiety and clinical depression
• the embarrassment she once felt around her mental health
• parenting through mental health challenges
• how she now manages her mental wellbeing on a daily basis.
I am so privileged to call Julie a close friend as well as a much-loved client, and am so honoured to be able to share her business and mental health journey with you all.
Listen in to hear the full story of how multiple careers led Julie to web development.
Proudly presented by Danielle Price, Founder of She Will Shine.
