About Petina Tieman

Petina Tieman is the 100% Indigenous business owner of Complete Business Solutions (QLD) Pty Ltd.

Petina is known as the ‘driver’ of the business, doing all front-end activities of sales and marketing, stakeholder engagement, client communications and mentoring others. Most of all, Petina comes up with all the crazy ideas of new business to chase or things to try, and does not know how to say NO to a client in need.

Petina grew up in a life of abuse, adversity and transition which led to a constant changing of schools, home towns and family. Petina was raised ignorant of her Aboriginal heritage until her mid 30’s, of which time she finally understood herself better and used this as the catalyst to make significant changes in life, educating herself and focusing on career and a positive future. Petina has NO fear of any challenge in life!

Petina is renown as the “Rainmaker … Building Business, Empowering People!” possessing somewhat of a sixth sense to truly understand her clients, where they are at in life and in business, where they want or need to be, and creates the best low cost solution to help them get there – equipping and empowering the business owner with the tools and improved knowledge to implement and self-manage their future.

Petina has won multiple business and community awards, has been featured in numerous media articles, and now holds 14 qualifications, and is still studying today. Most people would not know by her down to earth humble demeanour, that Petina single handedly conceptuliased, developed and launched the Legacy of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games – a program that won International acclaim and is still running today.

Petina has shared her story to help thousands of other people in their own journeys in business or in personal life, living every day through her mantra “Lives Changed, People Empowered!” Petina has a constant thirst for knowledge in her quest to empower the lives of others, also donating an average of 15 hours per week pro-bono to mentoring people in business or in work-life balance, and volunteers for NFP’s and community group work.

Petina’s hobbies include: learning more about people; living life to the fullest; traveling out on country, spending time with her daughter (also part of the CBS team) and her wild child granddaughter; riding motorbikes, 4wd’ing, jetskiing, camping and socialising.
