PUTTING THE FOCUS ON THE AUSSIE ENTREPRENEURS THAT MATTER
AN ORIGINAL SERIES BY MENTORED, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NRMA INSURANCE
Right now, millions of Australian small business owners are struggling to stay alive. Fires, Floods and a 2-year pandemic have left many on the brink of disaster.
Now, in a new series, ‘Survive & Thrive’ – presented by NRMA Insurance – sees entrepreneur Mark Bouris mentoring six business owners as he helps them overcome their biggest roadblock.
Survive & Thrive is all about showcasing the stories of Australian entrepreneurs and trying to help them figure out for themselves, what’s their barrier to going to the next level, and what’s going to get them past that.
“THERE’S A REAL PROBLEM WITH THE WAY WE TALK ABOUT BUSINESSES IN THIS COUNTRY.”
We’re always talking about the extremes. You either hear about those at the height of success, or those at their lowest. We either hear about the Apples or Atlassians, the real success stories, or those down and out who just can’t make it another day.
A six-part online series, Survive & Thrive puts the focus back on the millions of entrepreneurs whose stories go unsung.
There’s hundreds of thousands of business owners out there who’ve done well for themselves. They’ve built up something to be proud of, but they just might’ve hit a wall.
After countless natural disasters, debilitating lockdowns, and the day-to-day grind, all of Australia has seen the strength and resilience of our small business community. Particularly in a world where we’re more divided than ever, celebrating our small business community -something that entrepreneurs of every stripe and creed can belong to- is a special thing.
I know Australian businesses can survive whatever’s thrown at them. I know they can make it through uncertainty, but to thrive, to go to that next level, sometimes they need a bit of guidance, because to put it frankly, what got you to where you are now, isn’t always what’s going to get you to where you want to go next.
