Who are we?
Sonya Murphy of Adala Group and Sue Williams of The Abitza Collective realised there was a need for a print and online resource for women in business. They joined forces in late 2019 to create ERA Magazine, an innovative print and online resource supporting women in business.
The first issue of ERA Magazine will be launched in early 2021.
Sonya Murphy began her career as the second only female apprentice compositor at the Adelaide Advertiser Newspaper. At that time the male-dominated industry was going through rapid changes with the introduction of computerised technologies.
Sonya started her small business early in her career and has provided book and magazine print design and layout to her clients for over 30 years.
In 2015, she went back to study to expand her skills in writing, editing and digital (web) design. On completion of her BA in Professional Writing and Publishing she re-branded her former business and Adala Group and Adala Publishing were born.
She’s a writer, editor, print and web designer who works with small business owners and provides publishing services to authors.
Sonya became a life coach in 2019 and uses her coaching skills to mentor authors who wish to produce and publish their books themselves.
Sue’s mission is to empower you to develop a leadership role in all areas of your life: to help celebrate your wins, guide and aid you to release doubts and fears, create new paradigms in line with your authentic “you”, and to encourage you on your journey. Ensuring you have a simplified plan for an abundant, happy and successful life.”
With over 30 years of experience, Sue uses a proven transformational technique – empowerment programming, involving personal and business mentoring, visualisation, meditation, energy healing, business know-how and tools, to assist you to reach your goals both in business and personally.
Sue is the successful founder of Abitza and Soul Quest Retreats, both the result of creating space to bring like-minded people together. Sue is also a firm believer in the law of attraction and the power of networking, both to grow your business and fill that basic human need of belonging and having a sense of community.
