In general, a business starts out with one energised and goal driven person who has worked hard in their industry and would now like to be their own boss. It may be driven by friends and family, an opportunity knocks on your door through your current owner or you may want financial independence and to take control of your future. It covers all industries and jobs from a stay at home Mum who opens her first child care centre through to being on the world stage like David Attenborough.
Working in the Northshore suburb of Mosman for 30 years at Travel Specialists Mosman & Travel with Kidz gave me the opportunity to move from part-time consultant, full time travel consultant, Manager through to Managing Director. Being a travel agency it has been impacted greatly over the years by both local and global issues including pilot strikes, GFC, extreme weather conditions, terrorism and outbreaks of disease e.g. bird flu & the sars virus.
Based on my years of work in the travel industry my passion is to share my experiences and skills and assist people to understand the impacts of paying big bucks for SEO, the need to have monthly P&L’s, how and where to market and advertise, analyse your opposition, company data base management, the importance of a business profile including logo, implement procedures and governing regulations and laws, value yourself as the owner, learn to have time off and sleep at night.
You are experienced in your business and love your industry. Stress is when we are not in control.
