About Simone Milasas
Simone Milasas is a director of multiple companies and the Worldwide Coordinator of Access Consciousness™. She is a business mentor and specializes in enabling business owners to create businesses which operate from the ‘Joy of Business’. She presents her ‘Joy of Business’ programs internationally and online. Simone has access to a set of dynamic business tools through Access Consciousness which are effective and often very different to mainstream business approaches, and they work. The difference Simone brings to business is her willingness to constantly ask questions, look at things differently, contribute to those she works with, and continually make new choices. In her own words, “Business is one of the areas in life where I am constantly asking questions and never assume that I have the answer. I am always willing to have things show up differently and change whatever isn’t working. That to me is the adventure and joy that business can be.”

About Joy of Business
Many people see business as a serious subject, something that you have to have right, that once you make a decision you have to stick to it, and you cannot change your point of view. In truth, business is the antithesis of this. Joy of Business is about the willingness to ask questions, change your point of view, choose what you have not chosen before, receive contribution and be the authority on what you know. Joy of Business is not about being hysterically happy. It’s about knowing that the choices you make, may or may not work and yet you are willing to have the courage to move forward and change, even walk away if necessary. Joy of Business would like to invite you to a creative adventure, called your life & living. We do seminars live, live stream and via telecalls on a regular basis around the world, as well as private sessions.

Q & A with Simone Milasas
What’s the story behind your business?
A long time ago I knew there was something else available. I made a lot of choices trying to find what I knew existed on this planet. I have been all over the world quite a few times and worked in many different industries, asked a lot of questions, met a lot of people. When I met Gary Douglas, the founder of Access Consciousness it totally matched the energy of what I knew was possible. To be creating a life and business where everything can be the greatest it can be and to ask for even greater possibilities with total ease. Gary strongly suggested, encouraged and inspired me to start Joy of Business. Life and business was not meant to be hard. No matter what anyone tells you.
What was your first job?
My first job was working in a sandwich shop in downtown Sydney. I remember being so excited about earning about $200 a week. When I was paid, I looked down at the money in my hand, and thought “wow, this is so much money, what am I going to do with all of this?” How times have changed!
When you decided to start your own business, what was your big “why”?
It was never a “why” for me. It was just something I knew. At school people use to talk about college, marriage etc and I never desired to get married and have kids, I only wanted to own my own business. People would ask what that would be. I did not know, I just knew that I would own my own business, as to me it was and is one of the most expansive, creative adventures you can have.
What have you had to give up?
Interesting question. I would say I have had to give up my point of view, all the conclusions and answers I thought I had about business and what it should be and how it should show up. As nothing ever shows up the way you think it does. So I’ve had to give up my love of controlling everything!
Your proudest achievement to date?
I have a short list of my proudest achievements: always creating & asking for more, writing a book (on my 2nd), being more popular in Europe than Australia, finding a wonderful man and his son to contribute to my life, buying a house on the beach, finally getting a dog, making more money than I ever thought was possible, changing people’s lives every day with the work that I do using Access Consciousness tools is the MOST incredible, proudest many moments I have had. There is nothing like facilitating someone so they have way more of them, and they realise they have choice.
What are some of the most exciting projects you’ve worked on?
Years ago would have been going on tour with Pete Murray and Missy Higgins when I worked with a previous company I owned, Good Vibes for You. Now it would be being a part of a worldwide company that has empowered everyone from Israeli soldiers, abandoned kids, childrens’ refugee camps and that is just in 2014! What else is possible?
What would you tell your younger self not to do?
I don’t really have any regrets, and I lived an extremely colourful life, I was not tame, I partied a lot and had some amazing adventures. Everything I chose got me to where I am today. Oh one thing, that when I was slashing money around in nightclubs and bars I could have been buying ounces of gold for $400 a piece. Now that would have created a bigger future.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
“Choice creates awareness” from Dr Dain Heer (www.drdainheer). If you don’t choose you will never have the awareness of what could occur. Make a choice, have the awareness. You can always choose something different. A choice does not mean you have to stick to it. That is the joy of living and business, you are allowed to change your mind!
What’s next for you and your business?
A lot more travelling around the world. We have seminars in Australia, Sweden, Poland & Dubai so far for 2015. Also a new book. A book written about being in debt and coming out of it and having a willingness to start to play with money. Money should be something that contributes to your life, not your life.
