Overcome Adversity

& Create Your

Self-Made Life

​​Olivia Carr, founder of Shhh Silk, is one of Australia’s most successful small business entrepreneurs. In her new book, Self-Made, she reflects on her life, from her biggest failures to her greatest triumphs, to empower individuals at every stage in their business and personal journey.

Growing up in a household affected by domestic violence, experimenting with alcohol and drugs from a young age, dropping out of school at sixteen and falling pregnant at nineteen, Olivia left her teenage years having already lived through seemingly insurmountable adversity.

A mother at a young age, without formal qualifications in her twenties, Olivia struggled to make ends meet with climbing debt and growing uncertainty. This is the story of how Olivia turned her life around in her thirties and went on to grow a global brand that is loved by tens of thousands of customers globally. Her products have been seen on the Kardashian-Jenners, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Serena Williams, Victoria Beckham and many more A- list celebrities.

In Self-Made, Olivia candidly shares her years of hard-won business know-how with practical tips and advice for success. Beyond real-world advice, this book also offers entrepreneurs and readers the support and inspiration to feel empowered, pursue their business and personal dreams, and become financially independent.
