The Beach People Founders: ‘We Didn’t Feel Fulfilled in Our Jobs, So We Created Our Own’

How does a good idea become a great business? Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie know better than most.


Sand, waves and two guys on surfboards – the mood was just right when Emma Henderson and sister Victoria Beattie, decided to begin their journey as business partners in the venture we now know as The Beach People. Thanks to a lack of fulfilling jobs for the siblings in their (then) new coastal home of Kingscliff NSW, Emma and Victoria didn’t wait for the right job to come to them – they decided to create it themselves. Here’s their story.
