Hi, we're Toni and Stuart Livesey. We've been running our own small businesses since 1998.
These days we run Toni's web design and copywriting business and our own online shops from beautiful Hervey Bay, Queensland.
The business is partially distributed and that means that most of Toni's staff work from their homes ... and are spread all over the world too.
