In this episode of the Open for Business podcast, we have a genuine feel-good story for you! Lyndon Galea is the founder of Eat Up. Lyndon created this business in his hometown of Shepparton, Victoria when he found that 1 in 8 kids were going to school on an empty stomach. He decided that he had to do something about it and gathered up some of his mates to help him make sandwiches which he then took to the local school and gave them to the teaches to hand out to the kids in need.  

Today, Lyndon is based in Melbourne and has grown Eat Up into a successful business working with 18+ schools in the state to ensure that kids that are in the unfortunate position of going to school hungry, are fed and given the best chance to get the most out of their important early days of education.

It’s time to find out more about this legend doing great this and just how he built his business. Let’s do this!!

TOP LEARNINGS IN THIS EPISODE:

1.     You don’t need loads of money to get started!! This is a limiting belief, where there is a will there is a way!

2.     Talk to other people about your idea / business / venture! Comminucate and network! You just don’t know what opportunities are out there for you to take advantage of!

3.     Give it a go! Don’t hold back because it’s not worth regretting it later! What’s the worst that can happen anyway?
