With Guest Samantha Wills.
At just 21, Samantha Wills founded her own global self-titled jewellery company. Starting from her kitchen table in Bondi with an in-demand jewellery party-plan business, Samantha gained her first big break at Australian Fashion Week in 2004. She was thrust into the spotlight as a stream of celebrities were photographed wearing her pieces – Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Pink. But when some of her earrings were selected to appear in Sex and The City, the young designer relocated to New York to build the brand on an international stage.
After Samantha’s early recovery from $80k debt she turned over her first million by age 26. The business went from strength to strength, building a cult following. But in 2019 Samantha stunned the world with the brand’s seemingly sudden closure, at its peak as a multi-million-dollar company.
Samantha, after many years of ignoring symptoms of pain, finally took herself to a doctor and was diagnosed with endometriosis and was operated on immediately. Samantha shares openly about this so that it may this serve as an important reminder to always listen to our bodies, no matter how busy we may be.
Following Samantha’s journey, from being named a breakout star by The New York Times to barely being able to breathe on a hotel room floor she has put all of her story down on paper, Of Gold and Dust is so much more than a business memoir. In her unique, confessional tone, Samantha tells the intimate details of her life and business, sharing her truths with a rare rawness and vulnerability.
Samantha has spent the last decade in New York City. Having just returned home to Australia, she now resides in NSW as a creative director and keynote speaker.

SEASON 2, EPISODE 6
Women Supporting Women
In today’s episode Justine covers the massively important topic surrounding women supporting other women, and in turn, when the opposite happens too. She sets a few tasks for you today in order to break some barriers, and move mountains within your own working world while leading by example too.
Opening up on communication with others, recognising the power that comes from doing so, and also knowing when to draw the line too. Being more vulnerable and letting our guards down in order to better connect, open opportunities for synergies, new business and friendship, and not ultimately deny and deprive yourself of whatever potential that connection could make. Putting yourself out there more, and better understanding if and when the feeling isn’t mutual or reciprocated, and a reminder about where that naysayer behaviour stems from.
To quote Madeleine Albright, “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”

SEASON 2, EPISODE 9 FINALE
In this season finale episode of Season 2, Justine talks about self-care. Recognising when it’s time to put yourself first. What self-care means really, and why it matters so much. Juggling so many balls as she does each day, and coming to realise her own limitations, that you have to put the mask on yourself, in order to look after everyone else properly, but most of all, you. After many years of not doing this, having the affect it has on her body in various ways, that it’s ultimately not worth jeopardising your own health, learning to stop and down tools, is far more important as there’s only one you. This is also a recap on the season and how poignant the episode subjects have been, in shaping the past year both for Justine, and yourselves too. To remind you to keep marching to the beat of your own drum, removing those naysayers, powering forward and embracing change, and giving yourself the love you need and deserve too.
