The Northbridge Rotary Club was very fortunate in February this year when Richard Kuipers entertained us with his personal situation on starting a business in Australia as an immigrant with no funding.
Richard’s business, Two men and a Truck is flourishing now but his early days in Australia with high expectations and no money, the retelling of his experience was hilarious. He gentle directed us through his first earning experience in the “Red Light” district of Sydney and the associated gangster of the time, to moving out on his own and requiring a removal vehicle.
This light the spark of an opportunity, Richard started the removalists business and a family and grew them both successfully. Richard explained to the Club his approach to developing a business, growing the employees and the family within the business and why it was successful.
