THIS IS ME

A REG­U­LAR IN­SIGHT INTO SUN­SHINE COAST PER­SON­AL­I­TIES

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | Q& A - RAELEEN KAESEHAGEN CEO AND FOUNDER OF MUD PUTTY

Raeleen Kaesehagen is a pas­sion­ate Sun­shine Coast res­i­dent and the founder of mud­putty. She ex­plains that mud­putty aims to fuel peo­ple’s in­ter­ests by con­nect­ing them with their “tribe” by mak­ing it easy to find and book lo­cal classes, ac­tiv­i­ties and work­shops on­line.

The web­site of­fers a di­rec­tory of hun­dreds of ac­tiv­i­ties, with classes, work­shops and events for ev­ery age, budget and in­ter­est.

Top­ics cov­ered range from yoga and med­i­ta­tion to mu­sic and art lessons. You can also fil­ter classes by lo­ca­tion, age, time and cat­e­gory.

1 Favourite time of day and why? Early morn­ing – 5am to 6am. It’s when the beach is at its best.

2 What ex­cites you? A good cause, chal­lenges, do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent, learn­ing some­thing new, see­ing other peo­ple’s ex­cite­ment, and rain­bows (yes, I still love see­ing a rain­bow).

3 Favourite sport? Player or spec­ta­tor? Rock climb­ing and kite surf­ing as a player, pre-kids. I en­joy stand-up pad­dling right now as I can do it with the kids.

4 Best child­hood mem­ory? Camp­ing – us­ing the in­flat­able mat­tress as a boat, cruis­ing down the creek.

5 Where were you born? Bris­bane.

6 Where would you like to hol­i­day? The Kim­ber­ley, West­ern Aus­tralia. It’s one 4WD hol­i­day I haven’t been on yet and would love to go.

7 Cats or dogs? Do you have a pet? Do you count fish as pets?

8 Who are your he­roes?

No one spe­cific. I just love read­ing about peo­ple who have led or lead amaz­ing, in­spir­ing lives ... peo­ple who do things on their terms, who do things from pas­sion and cre­ation.

The best thing is, you don’t have to go far to meet a hero. They’re all around us.

Our com­mu­nity he­roes, the ones who vol­un­teer, do things for the en­vi­ron­ment, for an­i­mals, for oth­ers – I just love hear­ing their sto­ries and see­ing how amaz­ing ev­ery­one is.

9 Dream job? I just cre­ated it – founder of mud­putty.

10 What will you be do­ing in years? 10 Mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in peo­ple’s lives around the world, help­ing ev­ery­one, ev­ery­where fuel their in­ter­ests and find their tribe.

11 What’s the best thing about liv­ing on the Sun­shine Coast?

You get to live where other peo­ple dream to travel.

You can cre­ate your ideal lifestyle here, what­ever that looks like for you.
