Mentor profile – Catherine Moolenschot
Catherine Moolenschot is the author of Jim’s Book, the biography of the founder of the iconic Jim’s franchise most known as Jim’s Mowing. She interviewed over one hundred people for the book to piece together the surprising story of how Jim became Australia’s accidental backyard millionaire.
Catherine fell in love with reading and writing young, and at 13 a school project prompted her to write her first book about a refugee’s journey from Africa to Australia, entitled A Rough Road.
At 17 she gave a TEDx talk on the topic of Living Your Funnel of Greatness, and has given talks at schools around Australia, as well as at universities and corporates, including Melbourne University, Insurance Australia Group (IAG) and National Australia Bank (NAB).
Today she ghostwrites books for CEOs and professionals.
