We also talk about handling the constant battle as the mouse in a lion’s industry, and how she manages business with a husband in the business as well as 2 young kids.

From Mamamia this is Lady Startup, the show where female entrepreneurs share the highs and lows of building a business.
Rachel Corbett’s guest today is the founder of Whole Kids, Monica Meldrum.
Monica and her husband were frustrated they couldn’t find any tasty, healthy snacks for their nieces and nephews so they decided to take matters into their own hands.
They started out in a tiny rented house in Melbourne. And now Whole Kids has grown to become the largest range of award winning organic snacks for kids in Australia.
So, how did Monica and her hubby turn a personal frustration into a successful business?
