I have been running my own business for over 10 years called Business Simplicity in which I am a registered BAS agent and Management Accountant offering bookkeeping, business advisory and coaching services. I started my second business with my husband 3 years ago called Berger Transport of which we have grown to two trucks now and intend to keep growing. I started my third business Bookkeepers Support just over a year ago offering coaching, training and retreats to fellow bookkeepers supporting them into their own business. We have 2 staff members and are continually expanding and moving our businesses forward. I love to help small business to succeed with as much guidance and support as I can give. I know how tough it is to run a business and to have a dream you want to see come true. I am also a mum of 2 daughters that keeps me super busy, so organisation is absolutely key!

The Mentor series on 7

Does anyone know where I could get my hands on the Mentor series that was shown. I am particularly interested in the Monster Meals episode. I currently teach senior business in a high school and this is a great episode for the 'seed' stage of business development. In fact I would love to get my hands on all of them.

My business is as a sub contractor how can I move forward from this

I am 60 years of age and was bought up on a farm and worked it with my father until i was 19 in conjunction with a contracting and trucking business . Then my Father was taken from us suddenly as a result of medical state he was left from being a crown witness , then I was to young back then to obtain a loan to buy anything or get finance due to the law at i could vote but was not 21 so could not get finance or sign legal documents . So i did what you did in the 70s you worked and saved and bought so I went out shearing to buy my dads trucks and a grader off the estate all the time they were working doing shire and M R D work I did that for the next 30 years and built up a business on my own doing the same then my mum had to have housing and my sister was still in school and my older brother was still in a apprenticeship so could not help me and i did it on my own finances and built it up until my mum got Alzheimer and i sold up and cared for her for 7 years until she died then i had to get a job and i worked for several companies with nothing full time then i got a job driving a car carrier and fell from the top deck after slipping on rollers , and did damage to my back and hips , got a small pay out and decided to purchase a truck as i am unemployable due to my accident then the only work i have been able to find is sub contract work on projects with a firm known as Australian Civil Haulage , that are sub contractors to the major contractors and they set the rates and there is no negotiating and the alternative as I try to expand into a working small business in the Perth hills is proving extremely hard to get financed even though it has the books proving success and yet i need the sub contract work to keep going to keep a amount to pay the fuel bill and a small amount of a wage so my question is how can I move forward before i am shut down and made to take a part 9 or worse bankrupt , when i know the hills business is sustainable and by keeping the tipper it can work at good rates and value add by adding to the business offering further services at full rates not sub contract to sub contractor with a work at my rate or dont work at all and i be able to build on the business and on sell it in 5 to 7 years time

I love my business, BUT… I’ve been limping along for months not making much money, and I’m considering giving up I’m feeling overwhelmed by technology or marketing, or both I’m getting in a rut, and I’m not as passionate about my business as I used to be If your answer is YES to any of these, that’s ok because you’re not alone. In fact, the majority of small business owners struggle with these same issues sooner or later. Read more.
