#16 Sarah Schoeller - Mentor Revolution
The Village Markets in Burleigh Heads has established itself within the Gold Coast as a huge draw card. Starting out with only 9 stalls, the Market has developed into more than 100 different businesses, artists, designers, musicians and gourmet food. The Co founders Marissa Bowden and Sarah Schoeller created this starter after experiencing these style markets in places like Sydney and Melbourne.
They were both able to recognise the potential after being made redundant from their previous marketing jobs. Although the initial mindset was hobby oriented as opposed to business focused, the duo were able to recognise a gap where the community could come together within a creative space.
One of the key lessons from Sarah was to never take no for an answer, but it is something that’s apart of the journey when starting a business. This week we are here to talk to Sarah and find out all about her start up experiences.
