The #1 Reason Your Website Sucks

Bianca Board

It breaks my heart when a small business owner comes to me and says they’ve spent $6,000 on their previous website and it does diddly squat to produce any leads. It’s so wrong. And yet so common. Online reports say that over 80% of small business websites fail. They fail to produce traffic, leads and sales. [...]

Victoria Taylor

There was general shock in the small business community when it was announced Bruce Billson would no longer be Minister for Small Business in Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s new Cabinet.

3 Essential Rules for Lady Sales Stars

Frances Pratt

Many of us connect the idea of selling as being pushy, abrupt and just downright rude. No, no, no. Sales isn’t icky and yuck and it isn’t best done by men (or women). Great selling is about people connecting with people and helping them solve a problem they have or satisfy a need. So ladies… let’s get stuck in [...]

Get Off the Content Assembly Line for Greater Impact and Rewards. Here’s How!

When it comes to finding love in your personal and business life, what questions should you be asking yourself and your significant other?


Sometimes it’s tough…

Suzi Dafnis

Bringing a new project to life can be tough. Can you relate? You start with a brilliant idea and a lot of enthusiasm. You make a plan, get some traction and things start to move forward. Then, inevitably, at some point, it gets tough. You hit a tech challenge. Or something doesn’t go to plan. [...]


For Profit and for Good: Changing the Business Game and Changing the World

Dana Burrows

I’m in love with my hand wash. Not just because it smells great, but because it literally saves lives. I stumbled across the ‘Thankyou’ line of products a while back. I keep buying them because while I do really love their products, it’s more their business model that has me hooked. Many businesses are founded [...]
