Ep. 23 – Cara Mackay – Shed Life

It all started back in 1989 when a much less dishevelled Grant and John gave up fencing and landscaping for the Shedlife. Locals would come to John looking for something better than your average shed, something worth more than a neglected garden utility.

Gillies and Mackay is now managed by Cara. Her goal is simple – to make her Dad (John) and Grant proud by building on the reputation they’ve worked so hard to achieve. We hear how she’ll do that in this episode.  

We also hear about Cara’s move into the Management of the business and how she balanced this with a degree and being a Mum. 

Cara also shares her experience of ‘going viral’ on Linked In following the use of a few swear words in a post on the platform. 

Cara is an inspirational business owner and her passion and honesty come through in this interview.
