How Do Small Business Owners Go Away On Holidays

How Do Small Business Owners Go Away On Holidays?

As a business owner of 11 years, I make sure that if I'm going to be going away on holidays my staff are completely ready for the event. Some of the things that I do in preparation is write down any task that I do myself and I do that for the preceding three months and I try and think of any task that there could be that needs to be done in the following three months or however long I'm going away on holidays. From there I then write up documented files.

What Is Your Passion and How You Can Make Money From It?

How to Monetise Your True PassionWhat Is Your Passion and How You Can Make Money From It?

Today, I was asked what was my passion and was I able to turn that into a profession. I had to have a think about it because I've been in business for myself now for a number of years. I started my first business when I was only 12, and that continued into an ABN registered company at the soonest possible time of 14 and 9 months. Since then, I've been working constantly. To give you an idea, that means that I've been in business for 19 years or nearly two-thirds of my entire life (as of the writing of this article), which is an achievement by any standard.

Mobile Device Management - Is It Needed?

Mobile Device Management - Is It Needed?

 

We had a question come through about mobile device management and whether is it needed within the business world? Now in my opinion as a director of an IT company, I can say 100% that it is needed as soon as you are dealing with a business that uses business critical applications on the devices that they have, or if there's more than 10 devices under management.

Startup Experience In Business

Startup Experience In Business

Starting a business can be hard work. If you're a small business owner or have started a business, most of the time you have some sort of drive behind what was the inspiration. Some people get financial backing and some people don't and start from scratch and back themselves. I was lucky enough to be in a professional job where I was able to save enough of a safety net to start the business as a side hustle, while I was still employed by my regular employer.

Just Because It's The Holiday Season Doesn't Mean You Should Slow Down!

Just Because It's The Holiday Season Doesn't Mean You Should Slow Down!

A common belief is that as the year-end approaches everything slows down. People start leaving for home early to catch up on last-minute shopping for Christmas and New Year, a lesser number of phone calls are attended because employees are either on leave or celebrating early and new jobs are postponed until the new year starts. All these are indicators of slowing down. But what you don’t realise is that it’s the people who are slowing down and not the business itself. Just because it’s the holiday season doesn't mean you should slow down. It just means it’s time to focus elsewhere. What you need to focus on are those activities that don't expire or have an end date when you have more time. You will get no other better opportunity to play catch up.
