I’m Andrea, owner of The Cooking Collective; a cooking blog and subscription marketplace. I live in beautiful East Gippsland, Victoria with my husband Luke and our four kids. I am currently on maternity leave, but work part time in a government job that I have had for almost 15 years.
I am (and always have been) a super passionate home cook. Mostly because I love eating good food, but also because I love to make other people happy with food.
Tell me a bit about what you were doing before you got in contact with Business Jump?
I have been working in my government career, which I have loved, for almost 15 years. Once we started having kids, I stepped back to part time hours so that I could care for them. That was great, but it meant a drop in our family income. I started looking into something that I could run from home that would challenge me and also create an extra income that was more flexible around my new role of ‘mum’. My aim was to eventually match my full time wages with something that also balanced around my family.
