Do you feel like you’re stagnating in your role?
I have a clear memory of the moment I had that realisation. I was sitting in a makeup room at Channel 9. It was the 80s, and I had to sit there for 12 hour shifts at a time, at the beck and call of the network and their schedule.
And on this particular day, it finally struck me. I’m not going anywhere from this room. I need to get out of here.
I decided to go back to university to study organisational psychology, and soon after graduating started my own first business.
If you’re feeling stuck in your job, I urge you to consider doing the same. Most big business is struggling right now, but there’s lots of room for the small and nimble start-up to grow.
For the past 30 years I’ve helped small businesses thrive, and with the right support and structure, I believe you can do it too. Here are some of the reasons I believe running your own business can be the best decision you’ll ever make.
You can design your own future
Think ahead about the life you want to live. What does it look like? When you have your own business, you have the power to design your own future.
You can grow at your own pace
If you want to test the market and ease into your business, consider starting a side hustle. Or, do you have a plan and are you ready to dive in? In your business, it’s your call.
Be rewarded for your efforts
When you have your own business, you enjoy the rewards in a way that’s meaningful for you.
In my business, helping SMEs increase their profitability, I reap not only financial rewards for both the business I serve and for my own; but I enjoy the satisfaction of helping great businesses grow financially viable.
The rewards for running your own business are enormous, if you’re willing to work hard and know how to work smart.
If you’d like to consult on a new business idea or find out how other SMEs I’ve worked with increased their profits by an average of $420,000 a year, get in touch. I’m always excited to advocate for great small businesses.
