Smart Steps to Australia


Join me in my exclusive Migration Mastermind membership community

Planning on moving to Australia? I understand how it feels to leave everything you know behind and move to the other side of the world. I know how scary it is moving to a city you don’t know without a job. I know how guilty you feel pulling your kids away from their grandparents, cousins and friends.

It can feel like a long, lonely journey filled with challenges. Now, more than ever, you might be feeling unsettled about the world situation and how this is going to impact your plans for your new life in Australia.

You don’t have to go through it alone. The Migration Mastermind is here to offer you support and to help you stay fully connected to your dreams (even if things are on pause or moving slowly at the moment).

What is the Migration Mastermind?

I know you have lots of questions about the relocation and about creating a life and home for yourself in Australia.

Which city should I move to?
How do I stand out in a crowded job market in Australia?
How can I make friends and establish a support network in Australia?

How much should I budget for the move and resettlement? 
What furniture should I bring?
How do I choose a school for my kids?

How soon can I buy my first home in Australia?
How do I complete my first Australian tax return? 
What do I need to know about the extreme weather in Australia?
How do I keep my kids safe from the wildlife in Australia?
What do I need to know about looking after a swimming pool?
and much more…

What I know from my personal experience, and from running my website and free Facebook group, is that migration is a long journey with lots of stages.

The first step is making the decision to move to Australia, next comes the action stage where you’re planning, organising, researching and doing the paperwork (which is busy and crazy and chaotic and stressful and exciting all rolled into one).
Then you land in Australia and a whole new stage begins!

Creating a life you love in Australia is an ongoing adventure. 

You don’t have to go through any of these stages alone.
The Migration Mastermind Membership is there to support & inspire you.

Migration Mastermind is a powerful online community that will support you as you relocate to Australia and create an exciting new life for you and your family.

How much easier would it be if…

…you had access to professionals in relocation, careers, finance, mindset, health, wellbeing, travel and all of the things that come together to make your relocation to Australia successful (but without the price tag of working with them one-to-one).

…you had checklists and resources that can help you fast-track the practical tasks you need to do.

…you mastered your mindset so you were capable of overcoming all of your challenges meaning success was an inevitable result of the journey you’re taking.

…you were surrounded by people who lift you up, cheer you on and support you all the way. People who would become your REAL LIFE friends and your support network when you arrive in Australia.

What is a ‘mastermind’ group?

A mastermind is a mentoring group used to help people achieve success. It’s about bringing together people who are on a similar journey and leveraging their collective knowledge to solve members’ problems. It’s a well-known and powerful tool in the business world – often entrepreneurs and business owners will attribute their highest accomplishments to their mastermind group.

The Migration Mastermind will bring these principles to the relocation process to help YOU achieve your life goals.

If you enjoyed the recent Migration Matters video series then imagine support like that with a whole community around it and more interaction to make it even more powerful.

It’s all about the community

The closed Facebook community is going to be fierce and protective and strong and optimistic – this isn’t going to be like any other online migration network you’ve known.

It will be filled with people who are taking action right now to create the life of their dreams in Australia.

People like YOU!


‘I have loved watching the [Migration Matters] videos. I’ve found value in all of them and they brought up so many things I didn’t know and didn’t know to ask. I’ve found them all so helpful. I’m hoping we can move in the next year so the insight from the videos is helping me to move forward. Thank you so much for creating these as I know they must have taken a lot of time and energy on your part. They were very professional and you were a really good interviewer for your guest speakers. There is a lot of content to go through but I’m hoping to have time to watch them all.’

– Cara

Worried how the global situation is going to impact your plans?

The world situation is unsettling for all of us. What has been clear from the Migration Matters video interviews I’ve just done is that migration to Australia may have slowed down but it hasn’t stopped forever. Australia is coming through this and things are beginning to open up again. Come and join the Migration Mastermind to stay up to date with what is happening in the world of migration and relocation.

I can’t change what is happening around the globe but I can keep you up to date with the latest developments and provide resources to support you. I can help you maintain momentum with your move and help you stay connected to your goals and dreams. 

Who is Karen Bleakley?

Karen Bleakley of Smart Steps to Australia

I’m Founder of SmartStepstoAustralia.com, creator of the Move to Australia Facebook group, writer for Australia & New Zealand magazine and I’ve been blogging for over 12 years. My background is in freelance writing and project management, so I’m not afraid of admin and paperwork (actually, I quite like it!).

I’m a mum of three kids who were two, four and four when we moved to Brisbane, so I understand the challenge of taking small kids away from everything they know.

I have a wide network of connections and I can’t wait to introduce you to professionals that can help you move to Australia and thrive in your new home. I’m also totally obsessed with self-development and mindset and how all of this feeds into the results you get in life. I dedicate a lot of time and money to my own self development and I am excited to share how our beliefs, actions and thoughts all influence our life experience in relation to the migration and resettlement process.

I’m creating the membership that I wish had existed when we were moving to Australia!

“Although we are in the very early stages of our journey in terms of planning to move to Australia, I have taken something from each [of the Migration Matters] videos which I didn’t necessarily think of or know where to look before…It has been a real eye opener and makes things with what is involved.”

Please note: This membership is not available for people who run or work for a migration business. This is to protect the community from unsolicited and undisclosed sales promotion. We hold the right to reject and refund membership applications if we feel they are not genuine. We also hold the right to cancel memberships if members do not follow the guidelines around behaviour.  

Frequently asked questions

Why create this membership when you offer so much support for free?

I love offering lots of free support through blog posts and my free Facebook group. I’ll continue doing all of those things but this paid membership offers a deeper, more intense level of support for people who want to be intentional about their relocation journey.

Running a paid membership allows me to create things that are time-intensive like doing interviews, masterclasses and training sessions. Plus it’s a chance for me to find some new ways to create deeper connections and friendships within my community and create some brand new resources that don’t yet exist anywhere in the relocation niche (I have lots of ideas up my sleeve!).

Who is the Migration Mastermind membership for?

The Migration Mastermind membership is for anyone who wants to create a life they love in Australia. It’s for you if you’re going through the moving process, and it’s also for you if you’ve moved to Australia from another country and are establishing your life here. It’s even for you if you’ve moved over and have been here a few years! I’ve lived in Australia for almost six years and there are still things that I’m learning about life here. 

You are welcome to join even if you haven’t started the visa application process, but remember the community won’t be able to help you with visa questions directly as I’m not a migration agent (although I can put you in touch with the agent I partner with!)

How long will the membership stay open for?

The membership will be open for one week from Monday 18th May until Monday 25th May 2020 only. Doors will then close. There are no plans for when they might reopen again yet. When the doors do reopen, the price will be higher. 

Can I cancel any time?

There is a monthly plan which can be cancelled any time. For the annual plan, you pay up front for the year ahead and no pro rata refunds are given. If you wish to cancel, you can do this in your subscriptions in Paypal, or by visiting the Members area.

If you cancel, your access will continue until your payment period has expired.

If you cancel your membership within seven days of joining, you can receive a full refund.  No questions asked. It is risk-free. Email karen@smartstepstoaustralia.com with your reasons for cancelling if you wish to cancel during that time period.


Will you limit enrollment periods?

Yes, the plan at this stage is to keep the membership community closed and open it occasionally through the year. This will allow members to get to know one another properly and means I can focus on giving you support (rather than focusing on the marketing for the launches).

Does it matter where in the world I live?

No – you can join from anywhere in the world.

My experience is around moving from the UK to Australia, and some of the migration services I partner with are specific to that region. There will be plenty of content for an international audience though and many of the professionals I will be linking up with will be relevant no matter where you are based. 

What do I get access to when I join?

When you join, you set up a password so you can log into the Migration Mastermind Hub on the Smart Steps to Australia website. This is where you will find existing content, and also where the new content is added every month. 

There is also a Facebook community for you to join right away. All details will be sent to you when you sign up.

I've already moved to Australia. Will this membership community help me too?

Absolutely! Just because you’ve made the move already, doesn’t mean the challenges end – they just change. We’re here to support you on an ongoing basis because creating a life you love doesn’t happen by accident.


Can you tell me exactly what I'll be getting for my membership price?

The membership launched at the end of May, and new members will gain access to everything that has been created since then. 

Every month, new content is added to the Migration Mastermind Hub. Content and resources will be added every month and I will focus on where the members need the most support. 

If I join and find out it's not for me, can I get a refund?

I don’t want you to be tied into a community that doesn’t feel right for you. If you join and it’s not for you, you have seven days to cancel for a full refund. Pop me an email karen@smartstepstoaustralia.com to let me know.

I don't have a visa yet. Can I still join?

This membership is aimed at people who are moving to Australia or who have already moved to Australia. You don’t need to have your visa grant yet, but it’s a good idea to have started the visa process so you can get the most value from this membership. 

If you need some support making your decision about whether to move, My Decision Maker programme would be more suitable as it walks you through making the decision about whether to move to Australia. Check out Decision Maker here.

How will you manage having members all around the world on different time zones?

I’m in Australia, and I know a lot of my readers are in the UK, US and Canada and all over the world on different time zones. The videos in the membership Hub will all be pre-recorded videos that you can watch any time. I’ll also schedule videos into the Facebook group and do Facebook lives too. When you join, I invite you to book a 15-minute welcome call with me and I make myself available in late evenings for this and Saturdays so we can find a time slot that suits you.  

You will always be able to access videos in either the membership area on my website or in the Facebook group, so you won’t miss anything.

I want to go backpacking in Australia or move on a working holiday visa, is this membership for me?

While everyone is welcome in this membership, the resources are going to be aimed at families or individuals who are looking to move on a long term or permanent basis.

I've bought one of your other products before. Do I need to use the same login information?

Yes, if you’ve bought other digital products from the site before, you can use your existing membership login so it will add this new product to your ‘Members’ area. If you’ve forgotten your details, you can find the Members area at the top of the site and select that you’ve forgotten your password.
