The Increasing Relevance of Female Entrepreneurs

Women make up nearly half the world’s population, and yet only a little more than one-third of Australian businesses are owned by women. That might seem low, unless you compare that percentage to those of most other countries, where less than 30% of small businesses are being led (not necessarily owned) by women. I could go into lots of data that attempts to explain Why that is. However, I think the bigger issue is How: How you can build upon and leverage the momentum that is being...

Givers Gain: A Small Business Networking Strategy

If you’ve heard that before, and still have the same amount of contempt for stuffy luncheons in random hotel meeting rooms with people you don’t know, well then you’re in for a treat. This new networking method does away with just about everything you’ve learnt to despise about this necessary function of business marketing.

And yet, I also think there’s enormous value in sharing our vulnerability and real-life struggles so that we know we’re not alone and so that we can help each other through them. And sometimes we have days where it all just feels really hard. And it’s OK to feel that way every now and then. It’s part of the natural cycle of...
