EP 118

Tara Shelton is founder and creative director of creative agency for start-ups, Dream & Do. The agency has since worked with over 220 start-ups to turn their business ideas into brands. In 2017, Dream & Do launched a business of it’s own, Little Succers, Australia’s first succulent and cactus gifting service. This expanded out to a unique event concept, 'Build Your Own Terrarium Bar' which is like a lolly bar for plant lovers, inviting people to design and build their own terrarium.

Tara launched her first business in London, Moi Self, a girls helping girls gifting range. It was here that she realised how critical a brand was in a start-ups’s success, and her addiction to the entrepreneurial life began. She is committed to helping more people live their entrepreneurial dream. Tara has spoken at Start Con, Billy Blue Design School, The Entourage and General Assembly. She won 2016 “B&T 30 under 30 award” in the entrepreneur category.
