Janelle - Ballarat

Janelle Ryan



Where I call home: Ballarat

My job: PR Director/Business Owner

My life mantra: The most fleeting of moments are the moments worth living for

Me in 3 words: Determined, poetic, creative

An average day: I run a PR company and have a 3 year old and 9 month old, so most of my days look like scrambled eggs, that have been dropped on the floor, stomped on and smooshed into the ground... But the ones that don't, see me balancing the people and things that I love, the best I can.

Where I'd rather be: Parliament Hill, Hampstead Heath London. I lived next to this lookout in my early 20s, with my now husband. We'd go and sit up there together sometimes, looking over London, feeling like we were the only two people in the world, discussing life, living life to the fullest, no fears, expectations or responsibilities. I love my life now and wouldn't change it, but sometimes I'd love to just go back to that moment for a bit and hold on to it a little bit tighter.

Greatest achievement in the last 12 months: Being able to feel truly comfortable with my new life as a businesswoman, wife and mother and accepting that I can't be all to everyone all the time.

Best life advice I have received: Never ignore the past, if you want to succeed in the future.
