85. Erin Clark – Dark Stry

Brodie and Steve talk with Erin Clark, co-founder of Dark Stry (‘Dark Story’), an app that features various immersive walking tours of Perth, including one recognising early female entrepreneurs.

Originally from country Victoria, the former journalist moved to Western Australia 10 years ago with her husband, on what was supposed to be a two-year sojourn, and has fallen in love with WA.

One night, after a couple of bottles of Prossecco, she had the idea. Four weeks later, she had an app in the app store and she was launched. Then the fun started…

“Someone was saying to me, ‘Oh you’ve done so well, in such a short period of time.’ You’ve always got to remember, it feels completely different on the inside. It feels like chaos. It feels like drama.” ~ Erin Clark.
