Casey Donovan
Thursday, July 13

Casey Donovan is one of Australia’s most versatile Indigenous Entertainers.

After a meteoric rise to fame at the age of 16, Casey became the youngest ever winner of Australian Idol in 2004. Over the last twelve years, Donovan has made her mark not only as a musician, but also in the areas of stage, screen, presenting and writing. Casey is a multi-Award winner & nominee, including an ARIA No #1 Award for Listen with Your Heart and Deadly Awards for Best Album, Best Single and Most Promising New Talent.

After taking a break from music, Casey returned to the music arena with the release of her hotly anticipated single Big, Beautiful & Sexy. As a result of this inspirational song, she not only garnered new fans Australia-wide, but also became a poster girl for fuller-figured women. Casey took her Big, Beautiful & Sexy ethos further by touring in her own show, which has seen the remarkable singer perform to sell-out crowds at some of the country’s most coveted venues and participate in events such as Adelaide Festival, Brisbane Festival, The Rocks Festival of the Voice, Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute’s Spirit Festival, Darwin Festival and Yabun Festival.

Casey has also headlined her own Mama Cass Tribute concerts and supported the legendary Cyndi Lauper on her Australian National Tour.

Under the direction of Rhoda Roberts, Casey made her theatrical debut in Miracle In Brisbane for the Brisbane Festival. This was to be the first of many acclaimed theatrical performances, including The Flowerchildren (Magnormos), As You Like It (Company B), Opera Yarrabah (Opera Australia) and The Sapphires (Company B / Black Swan State Theatre Company), RENT (Hayes Theatre) and in 2016 Donovan starred in We Will Rock You (Andrew Pole/Ben Elton). Casey’s stage credits have earned her respect from the industry, which has seen her receive a nomination for Best Newcomer and Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical in the Sydney Theatre Awards.

Over the span of her illustrious career, Casey has appeared on many television programs including; The Morning Show, Sunrise, 20 to 1, Today Show, Studio 10, Fusion, Yarramundi Kids, Spicks and Specks, Good Morning Australia, Rove Live and many more. As a presenter, she was host of the 2011 and 2012 Deadly Awards and presented her own indigenous music themed show Fusion on SBS/NITV during 2012 and 2013.

In 2014 Casey captivated readers with her autobiography Big, Beautiful & Sexy (New Holland Publishers) and made her mark in the plus size fashion market, becoming an emcee and ambassador for the Curvy Couture Roadshow in Melbourne, plus becoming featured writer for international publications such as Pink Blitz, and Plus Model Magazine.

In January 2017, Casey was announced as a cast member of the third series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here which was filmed on location in South Africa. After six grueling weeks in the jungle, Donovan went on to be crowned QUEEN of the Jungle by vote of the Australian Public, her second reality TV win by a public vote. Casey’s appearance on the hit network 10 series has seen the versatile entertainer win an outpouring of love and support from Australian audiences, which has fuelled her popularity even further and will no doubt fuel her comeback even further.

In other exciting news, Casey has completed work on her highly anticipated new EP, which was crowd funded in 2016 by her biggest supporters. Donovan’s new single will be out within weeks, and the new EP can be expected by mid 2017, with a series of live an intimate shows around the country to reconnect Casey with music lovers and her biggest supporters.

Casey continues to lend her name and support to a number of charitable and non-profit organisations in her roles as Ambassador for APRA/AMCOS, Advocate for the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, advocate for National Indigenous Ear Health Campaign and as one of the founding members of the New South Wales Indigenous Chamber of Commerce.

Travel is an investment and anything could happen and you may have to cancel. Ask for me for details when you call.   Sailing Away Has Never Been More Affordable   Cruising was once a travel option reserved for the wealthy and well-to-do. But due to the massive growth this industy has seen in recent decades, cruising has become much more accessible. Should you consider a cruise for your next vacation? Here are ten reasons to go for it:   1. Wake Up Each Morning in a Different Port   Hotel-based vacations cannot compete in this area. On a cruise, your "hotel" floats from place to place allowing you to see many points of interest on a single trip. There's nothing quite like going to sleep in Antigua and waking up in St. Thomas. Just one cruise will leave you feeling like an experienced traveller.   2. First-Class Food   Cruising is perhaps best known for the food. And believe me, the food has a well-deserved reputation. From 'round-the-clock buffets to elegant dining halls to specialty restaurants, your options are overwhelming. But be watchful for cruise lines that seem to be cutting corners in the food department — I was personally underwhelmed on a recent Norwegian cruise. Read other travellers' cruise reviews ahead of time to know what to expect. I can personally vouch for Disney and Princess cruises!   3. Plenty of Fun in the Sun   Most cruises set sail to tropical destinations, where warm sunny weather is the rule. Just make sure to bring lots of sunscreen. In addition to the ship's pool(s) and sun deck, you'll have opportunities to take in breath-taking beaches at your stops. Several of the major cruise lines operate their own private islands, which are geared almost exclusively to beach activities. Have no fear–sun-phobics will have plenty to do if they remain onboard or choose try out non-beach excursions.   4. Great Entertainment   Vegas-style shows, comedians of all kinds, game shows, music and dancing, you name it. Cruise ships offer it. A highlight aboard the Norwegian Dawn is the Cirque du Soleil-style dancing and acrobatics show, while the Disney Magic offers up a different comedian every night working a different genre, from straight stand-up to juggling to ventriloquism. Every night there is something to suit anyone's tastes. You'll get a daily newsletter delivered to your cabin each day listing times and locations of every show.     5. Meet New People   Most cruises still follow the traditional dinner dining schedule, meaning your party is assigned a table at a specific time every night. Unless your party takes up an entire table, you will be seated with other travellers. Many new friendships are formed in this way. Do not worry, though, if you are a more private person. Some cruise lines have broken out of the traditional dining mold and allow parties of any size to dine privately at the time of their choosing–even tables for two are available. Princess and Norwegian both offer this new style. However, many cruise-goers find they enjoy the company of their fellow travellers. Carnival, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and others remain traditional.   6. See Exotic Wildlife   Whether it's whales and seals in Alaska or stingrays and tropical birds in the Caribbean, one highlight of many people's cruises is the interaction with local wildlife. On my last cruise, I had the pleasure of swimming amongst beautiful tropical fish. These experiences will leave a long-lasting impression of your trip!   7. Shopping Deals Abound   When you're out of your home country, taxes no longer apply–that is, up to a certain point. Cruise travellers find great deals on jewely, alcohol, designer accessories, and more. Once aboard your cruise, you will be provided with information about limitations that apply. You're likely to find that your cruise ship lists recommended vendors and offers greater buyer protections when you shop at these establishments. Attend the onboard shopping seminars if you have any questions.   8. Enjoy 5-Star Service   Expect nightly turn-down service and mints on the pillow. Expect a head waiter, assistant waiter, and possibly a sommelier to attend to your every need at dinner. Expect random cruise staff to greet you and offer assistance for anything you may need. As Celebrity Cruise Line says, expect to be treated like royalty. This is part of the cruise experience.   9. No Flying (Maybe)   Most metropolitan areas near the coast are within driving distance to ports where cruise ships sail out from. If you hate to fly but are lucky enough to live near a cruise port, you're set! However, if you do have to fly to your cruise, consider making your own flight arrangements rather than selecting a package deal through the cruise line. This can save you hundreds of dollars. Just be sure to give yourself ample time to account for the chance that your flight is delayed.   10. Because You Deserve It!   This is what it ultimately comes down to. You work hard all year long, don't you deserve a little indulgence? With prices dropping the way they have, the deals are out there. So take a week off to recharge and rejuvenate–you'll be glad you did!   There are more reasons to cruise than these ten, of course. Gaming in the onboard casino, exotic spa treatments, karaoke competitions, champagne art auctions, wine and martini tasting, midnight chocolate dessert buffets, sunsets from your balcony, and afternoon tea are some more ways to pass the time while you travel. You'll have an unforgettable time. Happy cruising!       Passport not required for travel but suggested.   If you do not have a passport you must have your original birth certificate or a certified copy of your birth certificate and a state issued ID.   Please call Kym at 214 537 0453 for details

Their popularity and critical acclaim has seen them share the stage with artists from Damien Marley, Steel Pulse, UB40, The Wailers, to Michael Franti and Spearhead and many more.. They've garnered respect from the likes of Don Letts (acclaimed documentary maker and Clash tour DJ), music journalist David Katz, and have been championed on the airwaves by radio legends such as Steve Barker (BBC), Charlie Gillet (BBC) and David Rodigan (Kiss FM and others)..to name a few of a very long list.

"Katchafire just keep coming up with goods. Their songwriting ability over the years has become second-to-none and time has allowed them to develop older songs to a point of perfection." artsHub

Their latest release 'Best So Far' tips the hat to Katchafire's classics in one amazing compilation for music lovers around the world, while the band is deep in studio mode creating their upcoming highly anticipated 5th Studio album.. The momentum just continues to grow, there is no stopping the fire.

Most importantly, Fabian developed a proven and scalable Facebook e-commerce marketing system that, over the last 18 months alone, generated one of his businesses over S million in pure e-commerce sales. This is the same system Fabian will be revealing in his REAL E-Commerce Secrets course. Carousel. Ebay. Lazada. Qoo10.  You probably know one or more of these e-commerce platforms.But have you ever stopped to think about what made them the internet success they are today?Well, in my 10 over years of “trial and error” on the internet, I’ve discovered that the people who succeed online have never relied on luck. And surprisingly, neither is it because they are smarter or wealthier.Instead, these people understood that the secret to online success lies in building a business model. One that is easy to use and most importantly… one that is easily replicated! That’s why for the last couple of years, I’ve been silently burning the midnight oil ploughing on a Top-Secret project. A project that will revolutionise the way internet newcomers start selling online. Here’s a hint… You’ll leverage on all the advantages of an e-commerce store without having to build one from scratch. And no, you’re not building a blogshop where you have to store bulky inventory or rush out in the morning to ship them one by one.In fact, take a quick look at some of the benefits of this online business model and decide for yourself if this is the easiest way for anyone to get started selling online: 1.    There are ABSOLUTELY NO inventory for you to purchase or store2.    You don’t have to ship anything – no postage to worry about3.    You adopt your own pricing strategy – buy at wholesale; sell at retail price, you decide4.    Earn affiliate commissions for every sale you bring in (it’s all done online)5.    Grow your prospect and customer list6.    Regional and Worldwide opportunities7.    Choose to tap on both free & paid traffic: Google, Facebook & other social media traffic8.    Build up your income stream or decide to sell the entire business for a tidy lump sum profit9.    Tap on my 90% 'done for you' platform and automation system10.  Powered by WordPress (first of its kind customised solution) Announcing… REAL E-Commerce Secrets When I started out on this project, it was a personal attempt to simplify my online entrepreneur journey. But as I shared the system with friends and peers, they convinced me that there are many other people who can benefit from having a system like this. (It is that powerful!)People who are tired of their jobs. People who are afraid of getting retrenched. People who want to start a second income but don’t know how. People who are still searching for ways to grow their financial wealth.Now it doesn’t matter whether you’ve dabbled around on the internet before – the strategies I’m about to reveal will work for you.  Regardless of experience level!Because you’ll learn amazing e-commerce secrets like… How to decipher whether a product is worth selling – this saves you time and effort. My 3-step product research formula to quickly scan through the sea of products available online and cherry-pick only the profitable ones. How to tap on the 3 biggest sources of online consumer traffic available today. (both paid and free) The near-psychic promotion strategy to trigger 'Black Friday' type traffic to your ecommerce store. It's almost like magic when you learn how to harness it properly. How to instantly position yourself as an authority figure even if you have no credentials or portfolio to your name. The exact psychological buying triggers you need to create a red hot buying frenzy that gets your customers buying again and again. Avoid the single most fatal e-commerce mistake most beginners commit without realising it. A HUGE shortcut to cashing in on your first sale within hours, instead of days. And way too much to list here… Here's an honest and unexpected truth…  When I ran my very first class last year, I was deeply humbled.Because of the response my students gave me. I had scored spectacular results with over 97.5% of the graduates rating it as ‘Very Good’ or ‘Excellent.’ Almost every single one of them felt they had benefited tremendously from the strategies I shared with them. (It's the sort of feeling that makes you want to do even more for many others like them)But don't take my word for it… Read What Some of Them Had To Say About The Program "I have learned a lot during our 3 days RES course. My first time to attend Fabian's class. Mind blowing!!!" – Ma Francis De Guzman"The trainer's commitment and generosity in his sharing. Not putting Fabian in a pedestal. Very structured course – easily to follow despite the many steps to master to get it going. The course saved me from being facebook challenged or i should say digitally challenged." – Logan Velan"Solid insights into how Facebook marketing should be done, very interesting how there is so much background research into the existing audiences and how to pinpoint target them. The set up for the drop shipping portal provided is very powerful – something that we cannot easily do on our own and the functionality is impressive." – Calvin Tay"Splendidly conceived and a genius process created by a genius. It will definitely benefit me where I plan to take my current and future businesses. Thank you." – Nigel Ho See messages like these popping up on your mobile phone day in and out… The Power To Transform Now if you were feeling sceptical about your ability to jump on the ecommerce bandwagon, I can understand that.

As an internet entrepreneur you don't want to invest on a good quality image. The type of image that impresses your web visitor into clicking buy. Yet, you still understand the importance of getting images. But you want to wait till you have earned your first dollar before you even click buy.That's why I want to take away this small "problem" by providing you with FREE commercial-licensed images for you to get started. Use these images, build your site, and when you earn your first dollar… hire a photographer, videographer or whatever you prefer.

I'm throwing in 6 months of FREE hosting to get you started. Why 6 months? From my experience that is the maximum amount of time you need to get good at selling online. And I'm considering a super slow learner here.This time frame will "force" you to work on your project and build the income-generating website you want. Bonus #6: 3 Years Facebook Support Group What about people who have questions after the workshop? I'm including 3 years of support for participants to post questions.
