Koel Thomae is a woman of gut, intention, and tenacity. She is the founder of Noosa Yoghurt – a brand that she started based on an obsession with creating a yogurt taste sensation unlike anything she could find in the American market. Not only did she create that taste sensation, she created a tidal wave of excitement, a business that experienced “hockey stick level” growth, and she did it all while having her first and only baby at age 40 (I can relate!). Koel is one of a few rare women founders in an industry ruled by good ole boys. “Good on her!”
In this episode we discuss:
- Her background growing up in Australia
- What the heck is a “Walkabout?”
- How to turn your passion into your job
- Noosa Yoghurt from idea to today
- Amazing new flavors
- The importance of Mom
- Even when you’re too busy, don’t skip your workouts
- Koel’s nugget: Be true to yourself.
Finally, and maybe most importantly today, Bhakti is collaborating with another incredible woman-led brand, Noosa Yoghurt, with a new Bhakti flavored Noosa!
