Hello, I'm Claire Markwick.


A self proclaimed study addict and home workout nut!  Mum of 2, wife of 1, I live with my family, our wolfhound and the chooks on a property in the Goobarragandra Valley in regional NSW.

An accountant by profession, I spent almost 15 years working alongside hundreds of small businesses and within large organisations, before swapping numbers for people and starting my own coaching business. 

Real-Life Business was born out of a desire for something more.  I get what it's like to feel burnt out by your business and now I'm on a mission to support business owners to reignite that passion for what they do; and grow a business that meets the needs of their life, rather than taking over it!

My Story


I've always had this feeling deep down inside that I was destined for something more, I just didn't know what that SOMETHING was! 


When I went back to work as an accountant after having our boys, I felt lost...torn between my old corporate world; and the new world I found myself in as a mum.  This in between stage was scary for me because I have always been someone who likes to be in control; and it was this limbo state that marked the start my now 8 year long personal and professional development journey.

My mission for Real-Life Business is to create products and services, that together with a supportive online community, help business owners grow a sustainable, profitable business that meets the needs of their life, rather than taking over it!

We all have stuff going on behind the scenes and it's important to recoginise that while we need our business to do well to support us financially, there are so many other aspects of our life that need our attention in order for us to feel energised and fulfilled at the end of each day.
