So who am I?

My name is Nerin Chappell and I’ve been at the solo business game for 7 years now, and before that I spent 13 years working for a major retailer in operations, administration, marketing and franchisee support roles.

My main aim since starting Positively Sorted has always been to help relieve the busy, stress and overwhelm that comes with our current always- on, information flooded lifestyles.

The best way I’ve found to do that and really make a difference is to take those tasks off your plate that are time consuming that you hate doing or aren’t good at. It not only gives you time back but usually I can also get it done in half the time or better!

  • I love a glass of wine and a good book,

  • I have always loved to travel – most recently NZ and Vietnam, Japan this year and I hope to do much more.

  • I hate the spotlight - I'm an introvert and much happier interacting one on one or working behind the scenes.

  • I love nature & trees – I’ve got lots of tree related artwork and photos, and also love the beach.

  • I live in paradise (Port Stephens, Australia) with my husband, 3 year old daughter Eva and stepdaughter Liv (part of the time).

  • I am a recovering perfectionist – I have this weird need to follow the recipe!
