I’m a thought leader when it comes to marketing here in Australia and I’m a marketing strategist for small business.

Today I have a magnificent and special guest. Pip from Jumbled Online.
I have never met Pip, other than on Instagram, but she is about the only person I know who makes me wish I was still in retail.
SHE IS AMAZING
She has this marketing, branding, community, authenticity, culture thing just right.
Her Instagram makes me laugh, and I am so often awe inspired at the energy and effort building her online community and business, she puts in.
I also love her and her business, because she’s rural. Yep, she’s based in Orange – in New South Wales.
Since creating my Buy From a Bush Business Facebook Group back in October 2019, I have embraced more and more the fact that I live rurally.
It was something that I often thought was to my detriment, but now I am finding it’s exactly what I need to be and where I need to be.
So, it was a delight to talk to this powerhouse of a rural women.
So, if you’re interested in learning how a rural retailer can build an Instagram empire, then this is definitely the podcast for you.
So, without waiting any longer, let’s welcome Pip.
INTERVIEW WITH PIP FROM JUMBLED ONLINE
Holy smoke I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did making it.
Again, Pip makes me wish I was still in retail – and I cannot tell you how HUGE that is for me to say!

Hey, I’m just popping in here to interrupt my own podcast and let you know some HUGE news!
You see as this podcast goes live, my side passion project is becoming something massive, huge and oh so exciting.
As mentioned earlier, I have a Facebook group with enough people in it to fill a small city – Buy From a Bush Business, with 265,000 members, and today, right as this goes live, so does our brand new marketplace website!
I AM STOKED! I have been in tears of joy and excitement for days to announce this – so this is my soft announcement to my podcast audience, as I’ll have my fellow side hustlers on the podcast soon to tell you more.
But basically, the amazing ladies at Spend With Us, Lauren & Sarah, and I have joined forces to create the marketplace website – Spend With Us, Buy From a Bush Business Marketplace!
So, head over and take a look at our new marketplace – a place for rural and regional businesses to sell their goods and aide in the recovery from drought, fires, floods and Coronavirus.
Head to www.spendwithus.com.au to check it out. I hope you’ll support us and support those rural businesses on our platform. (Make sure you keep coming back as we grow!)
Ok, that’s all I wanted to interrupt and say, now back to the goodbyes!
