Building an early learning empire

In this episode, we speak with Natalie Colbert, Founder of CanPLAY, a collection of early learning and child care centers around Canberra. With the collapse of ABC learning child care centers, Natalie identified a gap in the market, and using her military background as an Airforce Officer and knowledge of the local area was able to succeed in an incredibly difficult market, eventually owning four child care centers. 

Natalie talks about what it takes to grow a business while you are still in Defence, how to scale and take advantage of the market, and the effects of COVID-19 which has devastated the industry.
