Why Uppy exists
Uppy exists to change the way female professionals and entrepreneurs do business and life.
It’s a fact that working women are more unhealthy and unhappy than ever – despite having more information and solutions available than ever. So we reckon it’s time to do things differently.
We leverage our experience as business leaders, stress management experts and content creators, to challenge women’s perceptions of what they need to do in order to be successful, and in doing so help to reduce the rates of lifestyle related disease and levels of distress.
So join us as we dive underneath the hood of business and life to shine a light on all the interesting, funny and absurd things us ladies think and do in our bid to achieve success.
You can count on us to deliver fresh perspectives, open different doors and inspire meaningful change – while having a giggle along the way.
How Uppy Started
Uppy was founded by Laura Piccardi, after her business burned down and she burned out.
She worked her arse off for years trying to get to the top, but eventually her perfectionism, unrealistic expectations and need to be the best drove her to rock bottom.
Once Laura figured out how to operate differently, she qualified as an executive coach and spent years helping professional women change the way they think and behave, so they too could achieve real success while living more healthy, balanced and enjoyable lives.
Now she’s bringing all that together with her British sense of humour and passion for creative content, to cut through the BS of business, inspire women to walk their own paths, and get some serious shit done while having fun.
Laura is also the author of the bestselling book, Unfaked.
