ABOUT THE FOUNDER & CEO JUSTINE MARTIN

Justine.png

Resilience means having the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and to show toughness. This definition has been the cornerstone of Justine’s extraordinary journey over the last decade, a journey no one could fathom, but in Justine’s words, this journey has changed her for the better. Justine uses her learned experiences of overcoming adversities to help others gain their own resilience.


2011, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, underwent three heart surgeries, and then had three primary cancers at once. She was told she would never work again by a medical professional. But that was never an option for her.

Justine catapulted herself into the world of business. She not only changed her life to give it purpose and direction but also inspired those around her with her story.
 

After learning how to paint and use her art as therapy, she has become a multi-award-winning artist and found the strength and determination to take control of her financial future.

She now owns and runs seven businesses JUZT art, Resilience Mindset, Van–Go Decals, Morpheus Publishing, Team Fingerprint, Geelong Residential Cleaners and Justine Martin Speaker all being under the umbrella of Justine Martin Corporation. In 2021/24, Justine was nominated for 47 national business awards and won 15 in various categories, such as Coach of the Year, Creative Artist of the Year, International Speaker/ Coach Judges Award and Geelong Business Leader of the Year 2023.


Justine is an award-winning Resilience Coach/Consultant and Speaker, multi-award winning Professional Artist, Teacher, Amazon best-selling Author, Publisher, Mentor, Affiliate, Volunteer, Cancer Survivor, MS Worrier, DV Survivor, Disabled, Mum of two, Grandmother of seven and the Queen of Resilience.

“It was incredibly valuable hearing Justine’s story and she was such a good public speaker. The humour in her presentation helped hearing a lot of sad life events and how she’s navigated through.”

Sally K. Attendee at MS Australia Event

“Justine is an engaging, informative and clear public speaker. At no point did I lose interest in, or lose track of where we were in her presentation – excellent public  speaker.”

Andrew N, Attendee at NDIS Talk
