Would you like to be your own boss lady and own your very own publishing business?


Expressions of interest are now open for you to bring the gorgeous haven magazine to your very own community in 2020. From the Mornington Peninsula to Maroochydore and out to Mt. Isa, if you are a proactive, positive parent who’s got a passion for business and storytelling, this could be your next big thing!

Do you like being in the know with events and new happenings around your town? Do you like to share tips or tales with other parents – it takes a village after all. Whether it’s news on the latest teething toy, tween fashion or where you can lunch with your girl gang on your kid-free days – you can be a leader in your parenting community. You know that dream of having a flexible work life around your family? Well, it’s achievable. And here’s how.

The team at haven have been publishing for more than a decade. We started in digital publishing and have spent the past nine years in print magazines, email marketing and social media, while staying true to our digital roots. Now, we want to help you share haven with your community and replicate the success we’ve built in our neighbourhood on the Gold Coast.

Ultimately, you’ll be closely supported to grow your own boutique publishing business, with systems, technology and regular business coaching courtesy of the haven management team. You would work to grow revenue from your advertisers while developing strategic partnerships and helping other small businesses bloom in your community. Your haven franchise would offer a niche channel for these messages to be heard by the local family market, be that digitally, via social media and/or in print. The choice would, ultimately, be yours.

Sounding good? Want to know more?

We’re taking Round 1 expressions of interest right now (deadline February 15, 2020). If you’d like to know more, please email us today and introduce yourself. Tell us who you are and where you live. Describe to us your family unit and why this opportunity excites you?

You can expect our reply after the first-round deadline, once we’ve collected and poured over all the expressions of interest. And, let’s be honest, we want to give ourselves plenty of time in January to get our kids off to school and settled for the new year. See, you can work successfully around your kids!

So, let’s talk! Email editor@havenmagazine.com.au

Here’s a look at what we’ve been publishing, our weekly haven e.hub newsletter and print magazine.



haven is all about family, life and style in Brisbane's inner city suburbs, the Gold Coast, south to Byron Bay. We have been keeping parents in the know for over eight years, with fun, fresh and helpful stories that they can take tips from or treasure in their own library.
