Mobile phone plans are not an easy thing to keep up with, especially when you’re going through a bit of a rough patch financially. Even the minimum payment plans give you barely enough call time to phone your mum on her birthday, let alone call employers to find out about job opportunities.

Well, one amazing company put their hand in the air and said “We’ve had enough!” – this is how Better Life Mobile was born.

Now, before I go any further, I want to say that this is not a sales pitch. Bounce is not sponsored by Better Life Mobile in any way. This article is simply the result of our own research. We just thought it was a great idea and we wanted to help with those wallet-emptying phone bills that come in every month.

Better Life Mobile was created with the unemployed and low-income earners specifically in mind. It is an Australian owned company, who offer low cost, no risk phone plans with the help of state and federal administrators, financial councillors and welfare organisations. Basically, take everything you know about phone companies and throw it out the window because Better Life is actually here to help.

Their plans range from $18 a month with unlimited text and calls and 1 GB of data, all the way up to $35 per month with unlimited text and calls and 9 GB of data – which is incredible! They have the same coverage as Telstra, they don’t charge late, set up or cancellation fees, and once you hit your allowance, they cap you, so no hidden usage cost.

Better Life Mobile provides their service to everyone, so if you’re wanting to save a bit of money this year or know someone that this company could really help, check out and find out more.

Kelly’s Back!

The incredible Kelly is officially back in the office! As of the 5th of February Kelly has been back on board the Bounce train after her three months of maternity leave with little Max. Kelly is once again available during normal business hours, however, she will be switching between her home office and work office so that she can spend time with the little bundle of joy. We can’t express how happy we are to have Kelly back, and we’re pretty pleased about the visits from Max too! If you need to get in contact with Kelly about anything Bounce related, you can contact her on 0419 326 694 or via her email

Meet the New Team Member

We would like everyone to officially welcome our newest Bounce Team member, Shania! Fresh out of school and full of motivation, Shania took the initiative to walk through our front doors and ask if there was any work available – the rest is history! Shania will be starting out by helping around the office, getting to know what we do and supporting every team member with a range of different jobs. Shania is very interested in event organising, planning and scheduling which is great for us because we need someone other than Kelly to keep us all in line! Welcome to the team Shania, you’re going to do great!

Trainer of the Month

This month we get to say thank you to a trainer who has made such a huge impact to all of his participants. Through his positivity, motivation and incredible skills as a trainer, Leon McAsey has become one of Bounces’ most valued members.

Leon spent his early years as a ballroom & Latin Dance Instructor and perfected his profession over 15 years, resulting in him owning and operating his own business in Melbourne right up until 2010. Missing the quiet country life, Leon sold his business and returned to northern Victoria, where he purchased a small farm. He went on to work with Corrections Victoria delivering CGEA Certificates I, II and III (specialising in working with disengaged and disadvantaged youths).

Nowadays, Leon spends his time working with his Bounce Participants, cracking “dad” jokes and sharing his incredible life experiences. Thank you, Leon, for everything you bring to your role, we are so proud to call you one of our own.

Tip of the Month

“If you’re not in the right mindset a job can take ten times longer than it should. Walk away and do something else that gets you motivated then come back to it and try again.”

– Maria Smith
