Imagine going from start-up to global distributor within your first 2 years of business.
The situation of needing to learn on the go, how to promptly scale, systematisation, staff, procedures….OMG! list goes on!!!!
That is exactly what happened to Leanne Murner.
In today’s interview, we hear about the miraculous growth that happened when Leanne struck gold with an idea that was simply for her children at home, which then grew into the very first ‘Australian’ animal puzzle pieces. No plastic… No tigers or giraffe. Just pure Australian animals and Australian flora & fauna.
Great story and must listen!
