For new-to-industry brokers, starting a broking business from scratch can feel like a gargantuan task – let alone doing it in a pandemic. But former marketing specialist Catherine Denney has been busy making it work up in the NSW Northern Beaches. We find out how she did it.

Joining a new industry is daunting at the best of times, but starting a new career and business during a pandemic – and navigating a new world of compliance, business operations and credit policies – is an even tougher challenge.
