Busy, Passionate and Ambitious.

Want to get to know our authors? We got chu'.

Here is a cheeky interview about their thoughts on the FIFO lifestyle.

FIFO life is not for the feint of heart rather for the fire that ignites your determination, ambition and passion

What’s a fun fact about you : Fun, lol. I burnt my house down! The day I found out I was pregnant with my second child

What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning : Hop in the shower to get ready for the day while the kids are still sleeping

When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better : Have chocolate for dinner

What are you known for in your circle of friends : Working too much lol

Would you rather have more time or more money : More money – because if I find more time, I would likely fill it with work not leisure.

If your life was a movie, what would it be called : Boss lady – the Mumma edition

What would your advice be to your child wanting to enter the FIFO lifestyle : Why do you want to do it? What do you want to get out of it? Ensure you are confident in your values and ambitions. Work out what you are willing to negotiate on in life. Think about how long you want to live this lifestyle, is it temporary or a long term endeavour?

Who would win in an arm wrestle dump truck driver or a boiler maker : Boiler maker (or fitter).

Describe the FIFO industry in one word : Unique
