Rank #2: Jo Horgan: MECCA

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to Lady Startup, Mamamia’s podcast about women in business that’s all about giving you the information you need to start your own...or just hear how others have done it.  

Rachel Corbett's guest today is the Founder of MECCA, Jo Horgan.

Jo got the idea for MECCA when she was working for L'Oreal in the 1990’s.  After seeing the fanfare of the launch of M.A.C. in Harvey Nichols in London she realised there was an opportunity to create a more bespoke experience for customers than the traditional beauty stands in department stores.

So she quit her job and two years later was opening her first store on Toorak road in Melbourne.  

20 years later her company has over 80 stores and she’s also launched her own range of colour cosmetics, MECCA Max.

So how did she go from the owner of a single store in Melbourne to the founder of a beauty behemoth that's a must-shop destination for make-up lovers everywhere?

Rank #5: Vicki Condon Turned A Midlife Crisis Into Her Life Purpose

Podcast cover
Read more

From Mamamia this is Lady Startup, the show where female entrepreneurs share the secrets of building a business.

Rachel Corbett’s guest today is founder of Raise Foundation, Vicki Condon.

When Vicki turned 40, she decided she was either going to have a huge party to celebrate or work out what she really wanted to do with her life.  She chose the latter and sat down to write a business plan for what would be the first draft of Raise.

This blueprint stayed in the drawer until the shock death of a family friend.  Vicki had a passion for improving mental health in young people but after watching her friends go through the loss of their child she knew it was time to act.

Vicki started out with her programs in three schools.  These days Raise Foundation runs 85 programs and has trained over 3500 mentors.

So how did Vicki successfully turn a mid life crisis into a charity that helps thousands of teens?

Rank #6: Diem Fuggersberger Lost Everything...Twice

Podcast cover
Read more

From Mamamia this is Lady Startup, the show where we sit down with successful female entrepreneurs to find out the real story behind building a business.

Rachel Corbett’s guest today is the Founder of Coco and Lucas, a company that makes healthy ready-made meals for kids, Diem Fuggersberger.

Diem has an incredible story that is hard to believe.

When she was just seven she fled Vietnam with her family as refugees.  On their way to Indonesia, their boat was attacked by pirates, their belongings were stolen and they almost capsized.

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.

So how did she turn her life around not once but twice?

Welcome to Lady Startup, the show where boss lady’s sit down to dish the dirt on how to build a business that actually pays your bills.  

Rachel Corbett’s guest today is one of Australia’s most well-known female entrepreneurs, the Founder of Boost Juice, Janine Allis.

Janine never thought of herself as an entrepreneur, in fact she’d spent seven years travelling the world working on rock stars boats and having a great time in the years leading up to launching the business.  But after coming home and meeting her husband. Jeff they decided to band together and go out on their own.

On a trip to America they saw the popularity of juice bars and realised there was a gap in the market back in Australia.  So despite never having run a business before they came home and decided to fill that gap themselves.

So how did Janine go from having no idea how to run a business to owning a business with over 600 stores worldwide?

From Mamamia this is Lady Startup, the show where we get the real story from women who’ve created incredible businesses from the ground up.

Rachel Corbett’s guest today is founder of luxe stationery brand, Kikki K, Kristina Karlsson.

At 22, Kristina moved from Sweden to Australia for her partner Paul. Although she always knew she wanted to start her own business, it was only after shopping for her own home office that she had a “eureka!” moment.

Disappointed with how unappealing Australian stationary was, she decided to create her own range with a focus on clean Swedish design.  Customers loved it and she created an entirely new product category that was copied all over the world.

Rachel and Kristina also discuss her book “Your Dream Life Starts Here”. She is passionate about the power of dreaming and explains how she loves helping people turn their pie in the sky dreams into reality.

You can purchase Kristina’s book “ Your Dream Life Starts Here” on our Mamamia online book store ... apple.co/mamamia
