One of my favourite sayings is ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’ and I reckon Dave, his wife Mich and their network of business owners, foodies, makers and shakers are definitely that tide.
We’re back in Warragul because I really wanted to introduce you to Dave, who would talk for days to share his knowledge on what community over competition really means. His willingness to ‘muck in’ and contribute to the overall success of the retailers in this town is admirable and smart - you’ll hear why that investment in time yields such a great return in a physical and emotional sense.
I think you’ll enjoy hearing his thoughts on how to be a leader, how to grow your business in a small town and why he supports local whenever he can.
I’m personally in awe of his confidence, his tenacity and his willingness to take risks - knowing the safety net they have built with care and authenticity will catch them.
In this episode we reference a number of businesses:

About Small Town Business:
Small Town Business shines a light on people making big things happen in small towns, regional and rural communities.
Each episode is in two-parts. In Part one, we chat with a small-town business owner, hand picked because they have a particularly special story to tell. They generously share the ups and downs and all the in-betweens of their business, before part two where I draw out one of the key points of the discussion into a specific learning with a focus on marketing and business development.
Follow along for inspiring stories from community-driven, authentic people. Then let Erika McInerney - that’s me your host - teach you how you can take that inspiration and turn into into action for your business.
Whether you’re already living in a small town, thinking of moving, or wondering what business is like outside the city - this podcast is for you.
