The founders of two different out-sourcing businesses are on the show this week! It was a pleasure to have Brendan Green from Hire A Hubby to talk about the rise of the ‘handyman’ over the last 20 years, and we talked virtual assistants and business strategies with Barbara Turley from Virtual Angel Hub. Lots of interesting things raised this week – make sure you tune in.

Kumar Manix and Marnie Flanagan couldn’t be in more different businesses, Kumar (The Space Ship) the world of video games, and Marnie (Naturally Wild Produce) selling exotic meats like crocodile and other tasty treats.

Was a great pleasure having these two operators on the show and listening to their insights on two massive but often overlooked industries.

A couple of young blokes having a crack – that’s what it’s all about! Dave Liston from OURGO.co is helping young Aussies take back their economic futures and building a nice little business in the process.
