ABOUT ME

Hey there! My name is Bec McFarland and I’m the founder and owner of Pop Your Business! It's lovely to e-meet you.

I started my first business, Pop Your Career, in 2015 after an extensive career in recruitment and Human Resources. This started as a resume writing business and I soon progressed into career coaching, closing the resume writing arm of Pop Your Career in April 2018 to focus on building my coaching practice. 

Over the years, I've developed a real love for business - I’m a nerd at heart and thoroughly geek out on all of that behind-the-scenes business “stuff” that most people, probably including you, find to be a major irritation. I’m talking about design, branding, email marketing, business strategy, launching, social media, systems, processes, automations and so much more.

As Pop Your Career grew, I started being sought out by other business owners who were interested in "picking my brain" and learning more about the success I'd created. As I started working with more and more business owners, it was clear to me that the business “stuff” that I took delight in, was regularly getting in the way of my clients doing the work they really loved.

You feel me? All the back-of-house tasks get in the way and leave you feeling like you’re drowning in admin. With little time and energy to do your REAL work. The reason you started your business in the first place.

THIS IS A PROBLEM.

But thankfully, this is how I can help. In fact, here are some of the words my clients have used to describe me: 

  • AMAZING!
  • Awesome on steroids!
  • Tech guru
  • Design artist
  • Professional 
  • Friendly 
  • Vivacious
  • An accommodating and generous teacher
  • Fun-loving
  • Marvellous
  • Fabulous to work with
  • She knows her stuff
  • A wonderful caring soul
  • Innovative and creative
  • Big heart
  • Quick wit
  • Keen intellect
  • Full of clever ideas
  • Content queen 

I of course, think my clients are incredibly generous to say these things, but I'm not about being unnecessarily humble. I know the impact I can make in supporting my clients to achieve their biggest and brightest business goals.


HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER...

There are a few different ways we can work together, depending on the level of 1:1 support you're looking for. I offer 1:1 coaching packages, as well as a number of in person workshops, online programs and an amazing online community called Bec's Business Besties. You can find out more about these options using the buttons below. Alternatively, you can book a free consult call with me, here.


WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FACE BEHIND THE BRAND? 

  • I live in Canberra with my husband (Mac), doggo (Jasper) and two bearded dragons (Skittles and Lucky Lemon).
  • I have incredibly neat hand-writing… some people may have actually asked me to turn my handwriting into a font (it’s on the list!).
  • I am gluten and dairy free, which makes me a massive pain-in-the-ass when it comes to dinner parties - I do love Mexican food (without the cheese or sour cream), sweets of almost any variety and anything coconut.
  • I love colour and delight in having lots of colour in my surroundings. My office is a little like a unicorn on rainbow crack… and all of my books are organised by their hue
  • I love love love talking about money and think that as business owners, we need to have more conversations about it, without shame, guilt or embarrassment. #imonamission
  • I have a wicked sense of humour and a terrible potty mouth… the two cancel each other out though, right? 

Want to know something else? I’m an open book, so go ahead and ask!
