Lou Holtz once said “Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it” and we at ZippyCrowd couldn’t agree more.

Tough situations in life can be frustrating. It’s easy to start blaming yourself or the people around you. To imagine how things could have been different or to hang out with your own negative thoughts, complaining about how unfair things are.

But feeling mad about the unjust situation won’t change anything. Therefore it’s important to accept what has happened as soon as possible, regardless of how you feel about it.

Focus on the life lesson you’re getting out of it or find an opportunity to improve the way you react to situations in life that escape your control.

Make “I’m stronger than I think” your mantra.

This is the inspiring story about how Tasha Jennings overcame a difficult situation in her life. She’s a Naturopath and Nutritionist from Melbourne, who decided to create a new company whilst she was trying to conceive her first child:

For the past 4 years I’ve specialized in fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding. My reason for specializing in in this area was a selfish one really. I was wanting to conceive and having difficulty. As a healthy 30 year old, I had no reason to believe I would have any difficulty, unfortunately, or fortunately as I now see it, that wasn’t the case. What started out as a small personal project, turned into a career passion as I met with researchers internationally and was really inspired by the new research I was discovering about the importance of certain nutrients on fertility as well as the long term health of the developing baby. This is how my company Zycia, was conceived.

Zycia, means life, and is dedicated to promoting and supporting life in it’s earliest stages. Zycia Natal Nutrients is a premium nutritional supplement designed to support conception and the healthy and development of Mum and baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding. To further support couples in their journey to pregnancy and beyond, I also recently launched the Conceive Baby website. Conceive Baby provides expert information specifically focused on fertility, conception and the initial stages of pregnancy. Drawing on information from an expert panel of IVF and fertility specialists, doctors, naturopaths, nutritionists, fertility and reproductive specialists and researchers and other related health care professionals as well as of course my own personal and professional experience, Conceive Baby is a comprehensive resource for all couples wishing to start a family.

I am now a Mum to a thriving 4 year old and 1 year old. Having endured first hand the heartbreaking struggle many couples go through in their quest to start a family and come through the other side to have the wonderful family I always dreamed of, I am passionate about helping others achieve that same dream.
