That Time I Delivered My Biz Partner’s Baby

When the lines between family and business are blurred, some crazy things can happen - like starting a business with your sister in law and then accidentally delivering one of her babies with your actual hands, at the top of the stairs in her house.

Palmaira Sandals Australia was founded by sister-in-laws, Jenny and Gemma, and operating this business has been a journey of tag teaming (with 5 children between them), accidentally discovering each other's strengths and dealing with the surprising challenge of going viral, very suddenly, over night.

This episode was brought to you by the MYOB & Smiling Mind Small Business Program. Partnering to make mental health everyone’s business.
