We, at the Personal Growth Expo, know the importance of up-skilling to increase your personal development and financial gain, especially in your own business. The speed at which technology is growing means we need to stay up to date and the best way to do that is through professional training companies.

ISR Training & Recruitment
As one of the fastest growing companies in our service sector, we are proud to continue educating, training and providing employment opportunities for novice and professional personnel alike.

As well as providing those with little experience the actionable tools to excel in the workplace, we pride ourselves on our ability to take seasoned staff and business owners to the next level. We thrive in working with individuals and organisations who have already experienced different types of training over the years and introducing them to a unique and modern perspective. By focusing on how the consumer of today buys, we have been able to massively increase both income and revenue streams for employees and business owners alike.

This blog is longer than usual but it highlights Personal Growth in its many aspects.
It is well worth reading so you understand how people develop into the positions they hold today and how Sue would be the perfect relationship counselor for most. Recently her blog was awarded in the top eight for the best blog for couples advise in Australia.
My growth story starts when, at 15 years of age, I permanently left home. I left school at Year 10 – mainly due to my authoritarian mother who had the tendency to emotionally blackmail me: ‘I bought you this and that, so you must do this or that’. What would you do in my shoes? Continue being emotionally blackmailed and feeling guilt and anger, or get a job, earn my own money and live my own life? In the end it was an easy decision.
My first fulltime job was as a health food shop assistant. Later I worked as an assistant nurse in aged care facilities, learning on the job.
I’m the youngest of 7 children, and a half-sister to my 6 siblings. Their mother passed away and my father married my mother and had me. The marriage was not close or affectionate, and my father was a very selfish man.
I threw out most of the values around love and relationship that I observed as a child when I left home, because I didn’t want what my distant parents had with each other, or to be the way they were with their children. I wanted something more, something better. So, I observed people’s relationship interactions. I ‘picked people’s brains’ on the reasons WHY they did the things they did and behaved the way they behaved.
Mum died six days before my 21st birthday
Then, tragically, Mum died six days before my 21st birthday, and my anchor to feeling as though I belonged to anyone died with her. Although we didn’t have a really close relationship, she was still my mother. I was mum’s only child so it was only natural that she tended to spoil me more than she did my half siblings, leading them to resent me when we were children. The youngest of my siblings is 3 years older than me and the oldest 18 years. From the age I can remember, most of my older siblings had moved out and had lives and families of their own. We just didn’t know each other at all except for their biological role as my siblings.
The blow of losing my sense of belonging when I lost my mother set me on my current path of teaching people what it means to have a strong sense of self and to have an amazing relationship. Feeling so totally alone, belonging to someone became very important to me. I met my husband David at 23 at college and we talked for hours right from the start. When we set up a home together we chose to have no TV and just kept talking. We worked out what was important to us and what we wanted from life. You could say that we ‘had kids before we even had kids’, in that we imagined what it would be like, how we would treat them and each other, what values we would model for them. Over the next 30 years, we realised we were doing something different to many (but by no means all) other couples– we seemed to be growing happier, more connected and remained very much in love.
Lung cancer made me re-evaluate my life
I had a lung cancer scare in 2004 that made me re-evaluate my life and what was important. I didn’t care how much money I had or what kind of house I lived in or the car we drove. I was more concerned about whether I had lived my life as a wife, mother and friend who would be remembered with love, who would be terribly missed. Or did I live my life in such a way that people would be relieved to see I was gone? My brush with death led to delving into myself and concluding that I had lived a worthwhile life of love for others. I felt I had left a good legacy and the world was a bit better for having me in it. I would be remembered with love – and I was content. As it happened I was granted more years, and I have now dedicated my life to helping others find contentment, love and joy in themselves and their relationships through communication, connection and consideration.
David’s unfailing belief in me, his encouragement and support have enabled me to change the way I viewed myself. My belief changed from being a ‘Year 10’ dropout to seeing myself as an intelligent person with potential. I have developed into an educated person with a total of 6 certificates and degrees, including a Master of Counselling, capable of making the world a more loving place, one couple at a time. I’ve gone from having the mindset of an employee to the mindset of an entrepreneur, owning and running my own business. Through his unfailing love I’ve had the freedom to be my best self in 2017 and I’m still not done. There is much more to do and learn and many people to help. So, no matter what life throws at me, I will handle it and come through it with love. Throughout my life’s journey, I have learned the most important lesson – to love and be loved in return is the greatest gift we have and the only thing that truly matters.
Metanao is an ancient Greek verb for ‘thinking differently’. The name embodies the focus on growth and change that is the core value of Metanao. Our belief is that you have the resources within you to become your best self. We believe an emotionally connected relationship is possible for everyone.
Metanao Counselling is concerned with helping individuals, couples and families deal with emotional pain and find solutions to their problems. People are often so entrenched in their problems that their thoughts become cyclic and they struggle to see a future without the problem. This can cause anxiety, depression and loss of hope.
My role as a solution-focused brief counsellor is to collaborate with clients to think differently and to re-frame the issue. The focus is on a vision of a better life and on helping to articulate a vision of a future without the problem. This creates hope leading to resilience, personal grow and change.
Metanao Relationships offers educational workshops that develop knowledge and skills. Through ‘thinking differently’, participants in our couples, singles and parenting workshop series are enabled to:
- have an amazing relationship
- develop a strong sense of self
- be a relational parent and help your children develop into strong well-adjusted adults who become an asset to society and make a positive difference
Human beings are born to be in relationships where we are encouraged to be our best selves in an environment where we can grow. Metanao wants this for everyone. Imagine how many issues could be resolved if we each saw the value in loving each other and wanting only the best for each other.

Relieving Stress, Emotions and Limiting Beliefs
Personal transformation takes on many levels for every individual. You may require assistance in the Health, Wealth or Stealth areas so here at the Personal Growth Expo we intend to bring you as many different levels as possible.
The Stealth element is about your mind set, emotions and attitude about any area in your life. Kim Jewell is our specialist in the Stress Reduction area using alternate therapies but don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself.
Kim J Jewell
Kim works with clients to release stress, emotions, & limiting beliefs. Which in turn creates healing on all levels of the mind & body system.
Kim’s own journey through addiction and major anxiety has lead her down a road of intense healing. Twelve years into her journey of recovery, Kim found that she was still facing many of the same issues that had troubled her life. The substances were gone but the internal battle still raged on.
Traditional counseling and therapy had not helped in eliminating the stress and anxiety of day to day living. Burning with the desire to be happy, joyous and free, Kim started searching outside the traditional models of psychology in the hope of finding a path to peace. It has been this journey that has given Kim so much insight into connecting and helping others.
Through her life experience and professional experiences, Kim has been working with people for over 25 years. Kim has studied many forms of alternative healing. She has gained knowledge of the mind/body connection and continues to study the Nuero Science behind addiction.
Kim is passionate about helping others understand the workings of their minds and creating lasting change in their life.
If you want to chat to Kim and find out how she can help you with your stress related issues, book your General Admission Ticket on line now and save.

Here at the Personal Growth Expo we believe that Personal Growth is not some far off distance goal that continually haunts you to chase after it in an ever expanding capacity to grow and learn. We believe Personal Growth is exactly what it says it is. It is personal and it is about growing as an individual.
Growing personally is not the same for everyone and we all have a different reasons, life experiences and beliefs that lead us to grow differently or accordingly. There is no right or wrong we just need to continue to grow because if you are not growing you could be withering away.
Personal growth is knowing that you are what you are and that it is perfect for where you are now and for what you are doing. However as things change and develop you must grow and expand with the changes. The plants live the cycles of the seasons they are constantly changing, blossoming and growing. When the environment changes they adapt to those changes or they experience the consequences but not all can change in time.
Health, Wealth & Stealth
At the Personal Growth Expo we bring together the three elements of change that can make a huge difference to you, your business and those close at hand. Health, Wealth and Stealth at the Expo represent your physical health, your business/personal wealth and your inner stealth or mind set.
As a physical human being you require your physical health to be at its optimum in order to achieve what you truly desire. If you don’t have your health the rest of your life will be struggling to maintain any order due to being constantly interrupted through ill health. At the Personal Growth Expo you will be able to talk to the experts on all things physical to achieve the personal growth you want in order to create a happy and fulfilling life you rightly deserve.
The Wealth side of the expo has all your business and personal financial needs met. Relax and talk to those who know how to structure your finances to give you the peace of mind you want for your future. Allow yourself the possibilities to dream big and follow through on those dreams with the help of the wealth experts at the Personal Growth Expo. Here you will also find the skills you may want to achieve your financial goals.
Our favorite section is the Stealth area of the expo. This is about getting your mind in the right frame to achieve everything your heart desires. Whether this about your relationships with others or the lack of them, finding your life purpose or discovering what your passion is all about. Living the life of your dreams is all in your inner stealth and wisdom and can be achieved at the Personal Growth Expo.
At the Personal Growth Expo we create that intimate space under one roof where you can confidently talk or listen to people who can help you personally grow in the direction you want. Pick and choose the growth you want in the area you want to go and know there is always the support in the other sections that can assist you with your development.
With over 50 stalls, discount bags and three separate speaking areas you will find the personal growth you want to help you to your next level in Health, Wealth or Stealth.
