Mia Northrop and Dinah Rowe Roberts

The story

Thirty years ago, when life was simpler, Dinah and Mia went to high school and university together. They used Filofaxes, colour coded their lecture notes and never submitted anything late. Then they pursued diverse, dynamic corporate careers  in London, Dubai, New York and Vancouver, and still managed to complete their 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. Their combined experience in senior strategy, commercial, digital and customer experience roles did nothing to prevent the onslaught of life admin, which became their passion to solve. 

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

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