Nicole Eckels, founder of Glasshouse Fragrances - one of Australia’s leading fragrance empires for the past ten years. I met Nicole recently when she was presenting at an event I attended. Her story is inspiring.

Nicole Eckels moved to Australia in 2005 from New York, craving a sea change and new lifestyle for herself and her son.

Searching Sydney Nicole was on the mission to find a new candle to replace a beloved candle she had previously purchased in New York City . She walked into David Jones – a high end department store with a reputation for the finer things in life

What she didn’t plan on was walking out of David Jones unsatisfied. There was nothing that was good quality or locally made.

 In this episode I describe Nicole's startup story so we can learn from her experience.

As always there is a full transcript over on my website www.healthynumbers.com.au
