The Way Finders

[who are we?]

Everything is possible

Bounce is a group of people looking to make positive changes in people’s lives. Since 2006 we’ve been teaching essential soft skills like communication, emotional intelligence, rapport and heaps more, to help people from all over find their way.

We’ve all experienced our own way-finding journey and we know what it takes to go bold and be brilliant and live a life of our own creation.

Just imagine how it will feel when you find your own way too…

Maria Smith

Way Finder | Thought Leader | Rule Breaker

I’m Maria, and I’ve been in the same place as you.

In 2006, I found myself unemployed, uncertain about my future and very lost with a new-born baby to care for in a small town in country Victoria.

I felt like there wasn’t anyone that could help me, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. The only thing I knew for certain – I really liked helping people.

I decided then that I could change my situation and create a business to help people just like me – stuck in a cycle of despair and hopelessness. I created Bounce to help you make a huge lifechanging decision. A decision to choose unstuck!

I can show you the way…

Let’s do this!
