Leonie Dawson: A Lighthouse, Beautifully Changing the World

By October 4, 2019Life of Purpose

My guest, and new friend, Leonie Dawson, is an international best-selling author and artist. She is also a serial entrepreneur and has built three 7 figure companies. Leonie has been recognized for her business acumen as a finalist for Australian Business Woman of the Year and Ausmumpreneur of the Year.

Leonie is also one of the warmest, most genuine, creative, FUN, women I’ve met. Her art is a joyful reflection of how I imagine she might see the world. 

She lives on the Sunshine Coast, Australia with her husband and her two homeschooled daughters.
