Keeping things interesting, we are continuing the Candid conversations series, but this month, we've got two businesses from the opposite ends of the spectrum.

Our first business owner has been doing business since she was 6 years old in rural Thailand, and decades later after businesses on the west coast of the US and here in Australia, she is still learning new things and embracing online to grow her audience... Meet Duang Tengtrirat, owner of Real Food Catering here in Nillumbik, who has founded a number of businesses and has a wealth of know-how to impart.

The second business is a local start up who can't keep up with the demand for her products. Michelle Knott is taking on the food industry and introducing the concept of sustainable bush-ranged foods. At the moment, she is focused on bush-ranged eggs but has grand plans to make The Lost Acre Farm a successful example of how sustainable farming practices in Australia can work with the native bush while producing wonderful produce for our community. 

We're putting the two together to talk all things start-up and in the process imparting gems of wisdom for those of us just getting started with our business.

Digital anatomy of a success story 

This month's Digital anatomy is looking at how businesses use social influencers to help get the word out about their business. It's one of the biggest emerging digital trends at the moment - that can be effective beyond expectations - and a tactic that can be used by any sized business. 

Don't forget our Member “offers” table

As part of our revamp of the Monthly Nillumbik Business Network evening event, we'd like to offer members the opportunity to promote your business to your fellow members.

We will have an 'offers' table where members are invited to place a postcard or brochure with your business offer.

If you'd like to participate, please see Kate on entry.

It's looking interesting!

Come along and join in the conversation.
