Over the past two years I’ve talked with a lot of people who took a redundancy or lost their jobs during the pandemic. People who found themselves with either no choice but to start their own business or, in the case of this guest, saw an opportunity to take a risk and explore what he could build with his passion and knowledge and networks.
I’m speaking with Doug Moczynski from Gippsland Adventure Therapy, a wellbeing service working with young people with disabilities or trauma to provide them with a safe space to explore the world, learn and have some fun.
Doug is a larger than life character who brings an energy and authenticity to everything he does. This chat covers a lot of ground, but circles back to how he has built this business by being real and honest and authentic. That comes through in everything he does - from dealing with clients to posting on his social media. What you see is what you get. It works to build trust and networks and community.
So many learnings!

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.
