November 22, 2021

We have a very special guest with us today… and if you watch close on youtube you may also see a cameo appearance of a little one!  Franziska Iseli’s personal mission is to make a positive impact through entrepreneurship. She’s also the co-founder of,, and   Basic Bananas is known for their amazing marketing mentoring programs to support small business owners. Over the last eleven years they’ve worked with thousands of businesses from all around the world.

If you’ve detected a ‘small’ accent – that’s because she’s a Swaussie (Swiss born Australian). People refer to her as a bit of a rebel and super down-to-earth. She loves combining my creative and strategic abilities to grow and lead businesses.

In 2013 Franziska was awarded the NSW Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award recognising her innovation, creativity and philanthropic involvement. She’s a big believer in using business as a force for good and has had the pleasure to facilitate workshops at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC to address UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through entrepreneurship.  One of her big passions lies in ocean conservation and through, she’s built a global community to help save our oceans.

She’s the author of three bestselling books (Perception, Bananas About Marketing and The Courage Map) with a fourth one coming out soon.

She is also crazy about adventures and in her spare time loves surfing, riding a motorbike around the world, playing music, learning new things and sharing experiences with loved ones.
