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!

How do i ensure that i'm making the right decisions and choices.

Hi Mark. I have made the decision and choice to run my own business. This has been a long term goal for me i finally have taken the plunge to do so and has been a very long road in doing so. i have been seeking advise from many of my personal friends and relations who are very successful. I have also been implementing many of changes before takeover this has been one of my ways of making my life easier in the long run. I currently work 70+ hours and have a 3 kids so more work once home. My question is based on the fact that i seem to outlaying a lot of expenses to make these changes but am currently not getting any return as take over is not until the first of February. Or am i better off waiting until takeover to implement the changes i have forecasted changes in my start up cost and allowed for them i have also completed a 12month cash flow forecast which is a profitable so when i refer back to that i think i am making the right choices which was completed using the the current profit and loss statements from the past two years which was profitable. I have also allowed and allocated for this in my business plan. is just very daunting at the moment as take over is nearly here and have lots and lots to still complete before the takeover date.

Looking after yourself in business (Pete Evans); more information please!

I work in an industry where nervous breakdowns, compassion fatigue etc are par for the course. I had observed that in some parts of my career burnout occurred within 18 to 24 months. I eagerly awaited an issue of our monthly magazine dedicated (it said) to showing us how to take care of ourselves. How wrong I was! There were about two paragraphs on simple things like proper sleep, good food etc and every other page of the allocated space to deal with taking care of ourselves emphasised and gave examples of how we would be punished if we broke to rules - ie public legislation re confidentiality,privacy, mandatory reporting and the many other things we have to abide by in our practices according to to our professional bodies. So I concluded that I work in a highly regulated industry yet am required to provide well educated and (yes!) compassionate treatment for our clients/customers. So please, please tell me how to take care of myself when I am strung between it two really strong concepts each with huge expectations or doesn't anyone really know?

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.
