Tula Tzoras is an Actor, Author and Speaker. Between acting jobs, she also gained experience in the Corporate Arena. Apart from acting, Tula studied psychology, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution and relationships. She also became a reiki master and a sponge for learning and growth, delving into inner child work, rebirthing, movement, expression and so on. With a commitment to overcome personal physical and emotional limitations, Tula turned to alternative healing, actively keeping up a daily spiritual practice to this day.
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
I am an Actor, Author and Speaker. Following a traumatic childhood event that set me on a tragic trajectory for a lifetime (and having spent that long on personal and spiritual growth and healing) I have hand picked the best tools to entertain and empower women. Half of our middle aged female population here in Australia has $8000 or less in superannuation for retirement. 1 in 4 women are abused by an intimate partner, while 55.8% are obese. These are just some of the reasons I choose to be an advocate for women. I believe we need to ensure our future by eliminating obstacles and freeing us to both personal and financial success.

The Areti Goddess Events is a series of entertaining and empowering events that I am launching on February 4, 2018, in a beautiful venue at the Legion House (built in 1902 in Sydney) to help women understand and uproot the number one issue concerning self worth.

Where is your business based?
In Sydney, Australia with potential to grow globally.
What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
This is my first year in business. I have worked on it with a tight budget using the majority of my funds for social media marketing and have enlisted a team of amazing experts to help out with the venue. I am currently seeking for sponsors for the event!
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
Social media and networking.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
So far my biggest challenge has been getting sponsors for the first event, I have however compiled a formal proposal ready to go.
How did you overcome these challenges?
I have been very fortunate to receive advice from esteemed entrepreneurs when I was researching and developing my event series.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
When I am focused on a creative project and I am living my purpose the ‘how’ becomes secondary. Focusing on my creative vision alleviates anxiety about the ‘how’ this will happen.
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I distinguish myself by having a multi dimensional education and life experiences that connect with people on another level. I also combine entertainment and empowerment and am bringing the fun back into people’s lives who have suffered greatly.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
The best advice I received recently was to get sponsors on board before organizing the events! I did it the other way around!
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
My advice would be to ensure your business is your purpose and passion and to make daily lists continually asking yourself if every activity you participate in, is working toward your vision.
What are your favorite business tools/resources and why?
Without the internet and social media – we wouldn’t be connected, therefore both of those have to be my favorite.
What is a good article or book you have read recently?
“How to Make a Hell of a Profit and Still Go to Heaven” by Dr. John Demartini.
What are you currently learning about for your business or looking for help with?
Sponsors and help are most welcome!
What are your goals for the next few months and how are you striving to achieve them?
My goal is to produce 8 One-Day Areti Goddess Events beginning February 4, 2018!
What social media outlets do you use? List them below.
