Outback Queensland is the last place you would expect to find the headquarters of a swimwear business, but that’s exactly where you’ll find the home base of Coola Cozzies. Founder Julie Brown thought of the idea while on holiday in Yeppoon, failing to find a fun rashie in her size. In between working on the farm, she drew up a business plan, and in 2015, launched the business. We talk to Julie about the positives and negatives of life in rural Australia and keeping her “crazy” business under wraps until she was ready.
PLUS Karen Gately talks about silly ways to get yourself fired.
