Ditching The Great Australian Dream
Welcome to another episode of 30 mins with DailyStraits.com. Today, we are joined by a 25-year-old entrepreneur who founded a multimillion dollar company in Australia four years ago.
Melbourne-based Lachlan Matheson’s (pictured above) is the owner and operator of BOXXD, a global brand which services over 21 countries with wholesale and custom packaging for businesses.
