How did the idea for your business first come about?
It was a childhood dream to grow plants vertically in the city and in small spaces.

When did you have a ‘f*ck-it moment’ and decide you were going to go all-in and start your business?
When I was busiest. I had had my last child, and was sick of delaying the inevitable! So I went for it.

What were some major challenges you had when starting your business? And how did you overcome them?
 We were the first to market and it was a not so common theme. I had no one or nothing to copy/replicate so had to create it myself.
Overcoming it was a disciplined attitude of “the world needs this, I care enough to do this, and If you can you must” attitude!

What has been your biggest “pinch me” moment?
Being asked by Garden Australia to do a doco! and watching my team sweat in 46 degree heat!

Starting a business can be gruelling - what keeps you motivated, and keeps you going?
Passion, my kids, and leaving the world a better place with real solutions to grow anything anywhere.

How do you create a work-life balance?
I don't I suck at it but I never stop trying!
