Hobby becomes a business

Inspiring evening: from left, guest speaker Lucy Mathieson of Bake, Play, Smile with Jessica Bell from Elders, Leongatha, at the Southern Business Women’s Network dinner last Thursday.

THE March dinner speaker for the Southern Business Women’s Network, Lucy Mathieson, who is a successful food blogger whose home base is in South Gippsland.

She shared with the dinner guests at last Thursday’s event at Krowera her secrets and learnings from her journey from primary school teacher to successful blogger.

This is the story of how one woman turned a hobby into a business, with the addition of hard work and an understanding that you can’t do it all on your own.

The venue for the evening was The Grove, a bar and restaurant recently opened in the hills of Krowera. Guests were greeted with a spectacular view across grape vines and rolling hills.

Guests commented the food was delicious and the scenery spectacular.

“Next month our focus turns to Meeniyan and we’re interviewing a number of people involved in the revitalisation of Meeniyan,” network president Dana Hughes said.

“We’re interested to understand what the components are of re-inventing a town, a business or an idea”.

Because of Easter, the network is holding the event a week earlier – April 11 at the Meeniyan Hall and bookings close on Sunday, April 7. For more information www.sbwn.com.au
