MAKE YOUR MARK notebooks have been attentively designed and crafted to encourage and inspire women as they walk the sometimes long, sometimes discouraging road to success. I want to see more women follow their passion, be more creative and innovative in their lives, feel more confident and determined in their endeavours and maintain a kind heart on that journey
KASIA GOSPOS, AUTHOR OF MAKE YOUR MARK
Every page of the notebook has been infused with quotes, thoughts and assignments to stimulate a new way of thinking. As you use the notebook daily and focus on each quality chapter by chapter, the traits become habits. MAKE YOUR MARK is your business, career and life coach rolled into a compact, beautifully designed notebook.
The MAKE YOUR MARK notebook was inspired by the Leaders in Heels Manifesto, which outlines the six leadership traits of successful women: passion, creativity, innovation, confidence, determination and kindness.
Six distinctively designed chapters for each leadership trait
Thoughts and assignments in each chapter to grow those traits
Inspirational quotes to encourage and provide food for thought
Blank and lined pages to doodle and journal, record thoughts and ideas, set goals, and plan to make your mark!
Smooth, 100gsm paper that’s a pleasure to write on
Elegant and discreet cover design that’s never out of place, no matter the situation
Beautiful gift to inspire and empower the women around you!

MAKE YOUR MARK is an everyday notebook with a simple goal in mind – to unleash a remarkable leader in every woman on Earth
6 years ago I came to Australia, working as a Management Accountant in the mining industry. I quickly noticed that there were strong powerful female leaders in Australia …as well as women who were lacking confidence, afraid to articulate their career aspirations.
New to the country and overwhelmed with the variety of cultures I started interviewing senior women to connect with them, develop leadership skills and then share the experiences with other women. ‘Leaders in Heels‘ was born.
What started as a humble blog in 2011 it now reaches 50,000 page views per month and have over 20,000 social followers run by 10 amazing people and over 30 regular contributors.
After 3 years through Leaders in Heels we have interviewed hundreds of women from a cross section of industries and over 500 articles have been published on leadership, success, career and entrepreneurship. In September 2014 I created “50|50 Future Leaders” event promoting new modern approach to management and leadership through diversity. I have also attended over 100 networking, charity and educational events and workshops for women.
While I have been passionately observing women who make their mark in both corporate and entrepreneurial sphere I realised that there were common traits that they all used and shared in their careers. They were passionate, creative, innovative, confident, determined and kind! These traits are now part of the Leaders in Heels Manifesto.
The notebook MAKE YOUR MARK brings to life the Leaders in Heels Manifesto
The Leaders in Heels Manifesto represents six leadership traits of future female leaders and is a mix of my personal observations, Leaders in Heels readers’ comments on what true leaders are like and my own thoughts and experiences about success, leadership and life. The manifesto is a road map to become a leader in every aspect of your life. And the notebook is the perfect format to share it with others as it is easily integrated into our everyday lives, and facilitate reflection and creativity.
It was a busy ten months to take the notebook from an idea to reality. Graphic design, content design, selecting quotes, coming up with assignments, and finding a printer, to name a few—but I loved every moment of it.
I run a successful crowd-funding campaign on Start Some Good, thanks to all the men and women out there who want to grow and develop more female leaders. Within 12 days I raised nearly $10,000 helping me kick-start my venture and provide over 300 notebooks to inspire more women. Now it’s your turn.Make Your Mark

I hope you enjoy MAKE YOUR MARK as much as I enjoyed creating it, and it inspires you to craft a brand new chapter in your life!Kasia Gospos
