I never thought I would add waitressing to my resume, but since I arrived back to sanctuary of St Andrews Beach, Victoria, the peace and quiet has been amazing for my portfolio, but not so kind to my bank account. A random opportunity came up to waitress for a catered event with my twin sister at a Peninsular mansion. The money was too good to turn down, so dressed in black we found ourselves alone in giant house that wrapped around what looked like an unused swimming pool.  Marbled patios led to sprawling lawns which looked out over the bay. 
It didn't take long before the house filled with the rich, the minor celebrities and the washed up wannabes. With no hospitality experience I relied on my extensive retail and customer service skills to carry me through the night - which did nothing to teach me how to carry trays, or pour wine without spilling it down some womans blinged up cleavage or pronounce unusual canapés. In fact, the only thing that helped me, was growing up in Byron Shire, with a lunatic mother and 8 siblings. Eddie Maguire thought we were funny little hippies in black.

Most rich people have a very unsavory character - I learnt that well and good when I dated a multi millionaire from San Fransisco last year. Sure, private jets to dinner, and mansions all over the west coast had its allure. But a f**k you attitude to money, stubborn dress sense, poor taste in entertainment: bad documentaries, rhythm-less country music and monotonous conversations topped off a 6 month rollercoaster relationship, and cured my "gold digger" mental outlook forever. From now on, I'll be bringing home the (Sanitarium) not-bacon!

Despite pompy pricks, the last couple weeks has been a breeze of working, skateboarding, Skypeing, surfing, soaking in the hot springs, designing, appearing in a couple scenes for short movie, and some serious eating - life is good!
Home, sweet home

And its about to get a whole lot better with a business opportunity I have spent my little life preparing for...

Satvik Foods nourishment

  I want to share with you my gratitude and joy for the past five years of working alongside my sister, Kat and her husband Moi, at Satvik Foods. As a family-owned business, Satvik Foods has been a creative outlet for me within this mature company of 13 years. I've had the opportunity to be a part of something special, and to reconnect with my roots and heritage through the rituals of preparing and eating food. I have worked plenty with my family, but each is a unique experience. We've had our fair share of disagreements, but we always come together with a shared vision of creating nourishing, Ayurvedic-inspired dishes that are accessible to everyone. I've learned so much from them, not just about food but about business, marketing, and communication. The learning curve has been steep, but it's been worth it. I've learned the importance of patience and perseverance, and how to adapt to changing market trends and consumer preferences. Most importantly, I've red

RADA CAMPBELL - MOTHER & ENTREPRENEUR,  SATVIK FOODS.  TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF- WHO YOU ARE, AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am a mother, creative and entrepreneur. I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki. WHAT SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE AND BRINGS SUNSHINE INTO YOUR LIFE?   Connecting deeply with people, dancing like nobody's watching, swimming in the ocean during a storm, and creating with my hands - whether I’m sewing, drawing, cooking or writing. CREATING IS A BIG PART OF YOUR LIFE, WHEN DID THIS PASSION BEGIN?  Satvik Foods   was created by my wonderful sister, K
