Luckily the family made it to dry land but they were then forced to live in a refugee camp for 15 months before finally moving to Australia to start a new life.  They were a million miles from home and they didn’t speak a word of English. Years later Diem married wealthy businessman Werner Fuggersberger and had a family, but then disaster struck again.  The financial crisis hit and the couple lost their $27m business and found themselves 900K in debt.

We interrupt your regular programming to bring you a special episode of Lady Startup with a guest you'll likely be familiar with...Roxy Jacenko. Roxy is the force behind not one thriving business, but five; Sweaty Betty PR, The Ministry of Talent, Social Union, 18 Communications and Pixie's Bows.  She's also featured on her very own TV show I Am Roxy for Channel 10's Pilot Week. Driving her five businesses and her own personal brand requires a strong understanding of brand identity and creation, and in this episode, she sits down with Mia Freedman to give a behind the scenes look into how she did it...
