In this episode of the Business Beyond Borders podcast, I interview Justin Dry, Founder of Vinomofo.
Justin is an entrepreneur, business owner, mentor, public speaker, and co-founder and joint CEO of Vinomofo, one of Australia’s fastest-growing companies.
Launched in April 2011 from a garage in Adelaide, Vinomofo has expanded quickly and profitably to a run rate of more than $50m revenue, 500,000 plus members, and a team of over 100 employees.
Tune in to my interview with Justin to find out:
- The story and journey behind Vinomofo
- The importance of making short term sacrifices for long term gains
- How to have fun while building your international business
- How seeking advice can save you when times get tough
- Why you should never give up on your vision
This was one of the funniest and most entertaining episodes I’ve ever recorded. Justin has loads of great stories and he isn’t afraid to share the struggles and challenges he’s had along the way, as well as the successes. That kind of candour is a rarity in the business world and it makes for great conversation – and I hope great listening for you. We spoke for more than an hour, but I suspect we could have gone on for much longer …. Especially if we’d had a bottle of great Vinomofo wine at hand.
Justin’s episode will be an inspiration for lots of people, but especially those of you who are just starting out and wondering whether they can really make it in business and on the international scene. I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I had recording it.
