Hello, we're Mia and Dinah.


Thirty years ago, when life was simpler, we  went to high school and university together. We used Filofaxes, colour coded our lecture notes and never submitted anything late. Then we pursued diverse, dynamic corporate careers  in London, Dubai, New York and Vancouver, and still managed to complete our Australian tax returns on time.

Fast forward to 2018. Back in Melbourne, both married with children, working outside the home and herding cats inside it, a weekend chat landed on the topic of life admin. It was utterly out of control. Time. Tedium. Tension. Something had to change.

Our Story


Our combined experience in senior strategy, commercial, digital and customer experience roles did nothing to prevent the onslaught of life admin, which became our passion to solve. 

Determined to conquer the problem of life admin, the Life Admin Life Hacks podcast was born. Our mission to minimize, automate, share and delegate life admin resulted in Life Admin Hacks, a step by step guide published by Harper Collins.

Today we help individuals and employees transform their life admin from chaos to a state of control and calm. We run courses, facilitate masterclasses, coach, write and speak about life admin and together we continue to host the podcast Life Admin Life Hacks.
