Business Chicks boss lists in Northbridge as she heads to the United States

Trying you luck in Los Angeles isn't just for would be stars of the screen. The longtime boss of the Business Chicks network, Emma Isaacs is selling her Sydney family home having headed across the Pacific.

The home listing comes after they relocated to Los Angeles late last year following the launch of Business Chicks America.

The local Business Chicks network is now a decade on 35,000 members strong across Australia.

Emma has opened an office in LA after moving there with husband Rowan and their three daughters.

She has recently taken the global CEO role on her move to the US and appointed Olivia Ruello the Australian CEO.

The move is set to benefit their Australian members as expansion brings growth opportunities and access to top international market.

They paid $2.265 million in 2014 for the architecturally designed Northbridge home.  

The privately positioned 903 sqm elevated block comes with two level family home in Peter Fudge designed gardens.

The four bedroom home is built out of rammed earth, a natural and sustainable material with supposed health benefits, which assisted when her eldest daughter was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

McGrath Chatswood agents Olivia Chung and David Howe have hopes of $2.95 million to $3.15 million at its March 12 auction.

It is currently being rented out at $2,600 a week.

Emma started her life in the business world establishing a recruitment company called Staff It after two attempts at university.

At 25 years old she sold the business and bought Business Chicks in 2006 after attending one of their events whilst working at Staff It.

Their stylish events have continued to be popular, hosting the likes of Sir Bob Geldof and Sir Richard Branson, the latter's biography being an inspiration in Emma's success.

Emma's most inspirational entrepreneur is Bill Gates and she told of an evening she spent in front of a fire talking about how he started Microsoft when he was a guest speaker in Sydney a few years ago.

Isaacs believes an increase in the visibility of female entrepreneurship is setting a precedent, showing what's possible and encouraging more women to go out on their own and give it a go, something she has said she took from Sir Richard Branson.

As a woman in the business world, Isaacs has said it is easy to lose femininity and stressed the importance of not conforming and dressing too masculine.
