Australian Entrepreneurs Ep #06 - Yasmin Grigaliunas
Talking Leadership Podcast
As always hope you enjoy the wisdom imparted by my podcast guest. Today’s guest is Yasmin Grigaliunas the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of the World's Biggest Garage Sale. I was inspired by her story and how she came to be in the leadership / entrepreneur space. A few elements stood out for me during the discussion. The first being that leaders have a responsibility to do more for their communities. I took this to mean that leaders have influence and by the nature of their roles they can get things done and in her case, Yasmin outlines the passion for her business which she states is about people, planet and purpose or put another way - building people, impacting communities and encouraging conscious consumption. As always I hope you enjoy the podcasts today and I hope you are all keeping safe and well through COVID-19.
