19 – Koel Thomae Founder of Noosa Yoghurt on Living Your Passion

August 5, 2016 1 Comment

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:

  • Koel’s nugget: Be true to yourself.
