Show Notes
Lucy Maglione took a giant leap of faith and a huge career pivot from what was perceived as a secure role as manager of investment accounting at IAG Asset Management to founder of Hamper Gift Gallery, a premium gourmet food and gift hamper store. Lucy is the mother of two gorgeous girls, Nicola aged 16 and Olivia aged 10 and was born and bred in Sydney. She is a true ‘Mum-entrepreneur’! Prior to starting Hamper Gift Gallery, Lucy was a Certified Practicing Accountant for over 20 years, working in a large chartered accounting firm as well as general insurance companies. Like many others experience during their corporate careers, she was faced with a redundancy in 2010, which led her to seriously think about what she wanted in her career. During this transition I was Lucy’s coach as she was provided with an outplacement program at Lee Hecht Harrison, where I’m an executive consultant, as part of her redundancy package. During our coaching sessions she realized that she really enjoyed meeting clients during her auditing days and she no longer wanted to work in a back office role in accounting, or work for anyone else for that matter and wanted to start her own business. She decided to leverage her organizational skills, her love of providing excellent service, found amazing Australian products for her business … and the rest is history, as they say! In this podcast we find out about her career path and how she made the exciting transition into entrepreneurship. We discuss the challenges she faced when setting up the business, the personal traits and knowledge required to set up this business and how, by her following her own passion, she has inspired her daughters to discover their passion and direction too!
