broke business podcast

Listen to the podcast episode

In this episode of Broke Business, I talk through my journey from confused student to full time business owner. Starting right back in 2009, we go on a journey together of how the HECK we got to here, and the traps, pitfalls, wins, losses and lessons along the way.


  • Not having a clue what I wanted to do in life
  • Changing my uni course at the eleventh hour
  • A brief stint in real estate (yes, really)
  • Starting (and losing) side hustles
  • The myth that part time work and part time business is ‘the dream’
  • Managing mental health in business
  • Taking the leap, and why it’s not always how it looked online
  • Stepping things up a notch after a full year going it alone
