The lightbulb moment for Natasha Morgan wasn’t when she was managing over $15 million worth of luxury property. It wasn’t when she was flying three planes a day, or rubbing shoulders with celebrities either.
It was years later, when she was getting ready for her first family holiday.
With a husband and a four-year-old son in tow, the forty-two year old was ready for a break. But with the departure date looming and the worry of leaving an empty house diminishing the excitement she should be feeling, Morgan reluctantly (as we all do) called her mum.
Quickly, realising her mother and her mother-in-law were both forty minutes away in opposite directions, it wasn’t a convenient option. She was stuck.
“We didn’t want a house sitter for three weeks. You have to cleaning for them, clean after they’ve been, talk to them all the time – it’s not a holiday if you’re talking to them all the time, especially one of your family members! You’re supposed to be going away to have a break,” she told Mamamia.
It was in this mundane moment that Natasha Morgan realised, ordinary Australian families needed more options. And affordable ones at that.
Now, the mum-of-one is a house sitting guru, and earns a living from her company My Home Watch (MHW), a tailor-made home check service that tailors to you, your properties and your pets.
When the Adelaide mum was in her late 20’s, she was an executive assistant/estate manager, working with primarily the wealthy.
