INTRODUCING BABY'S VERY OWN PODCAST SERIES
SPILL THE G&T
Episodes dropping every second Wednesday at Midday!
What’s the REAL story behind successful Aussie female businesses? Not the ones that started with huge social media accounts, high public profiles or tonnes of cash. The businesses that actually started from scratch.
Spill the G&T unveils the truth by speaking to successful women about the tears and tantrums – the highs the lows … and the hard work … behind their success.
Join Founder of BABY Pink Gin, Ellen Weigall, as she sips a G&T with the women behind some of the brands you love, plus women who can offer down-to-earth advice that may just make the difference for YOUR business or career.
Episode 1: Kelli Brown, The Petal Providore
In the first episode of the series, Ellen sits down with florist Kelli Brown, owner of ’The Petal Provedore’ and a Melbourne-based stockist of Baby Pink Gin. Kelli shares how the challenges of an earlier job led her to make a pivotal career change and pursue the business dream she always had. While her journey wasn’t short of risk-taking, it's led her to fulfil her creative vision and proudly own a successful floral business today.
Episode 2: Maddie Gleeson, I Am Thirsty
Meet Maddie Gleeson, the Founder and Director of Melbourne-based company I Am Thirsty which produces dehydrated garnishes to compliment any cocktail. In a candid (and at times, brutally honest!) chat, Maddie explains how the 'failures' of her past have built her up for success and led her to achieve the work/life balance she always envisioned. A true example of 'when one door closes, another one opens', Maddie's story behind I Am Thirsty will spark nothing but positivity for all current and future business owners.
Episode 3: Julia & Frances, Berry Studio

A company that has evolved into a successful partnership that is helping businesses of all sizes put a visual brand to their name.
