Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive James Pearson recently stated that almost 60% of small business owners in this country are paid $50,000 or less. Collins Hume's gut feeling from working with small business owners suggests the statistic is about right.
It is not uncommon for business owners to think they are doing better than they would on salary. The upside of owning and running a business is having freedom, which often comes with potential remunerative cost to the owner and wider family.
On 15 March an event like no other in the region will take place that changes the way business owners think about their businesses and their lives.
The aim of this event, called REINVENT: Playing a Bigger Game, is to help business owners build and improve their businesses, no matter how small the business or the budget.
Collins Hume's Partner Peter Fowler said, "We all regularly wish for a fresh set of eyes when we look at our businesses but, often, we're too close to see the big picture. This event promises to bring down-to-earth, simple ways of adding significantly more revenue and profit. The difference can be instant."
"It is a serious coup for us to have TedX veteran presenter Paul Dunn back in Ballina. People who get to experience his session will be deeply impacted and remember it for life. The presentation that Paul delivers is all new material from our 2017 Unleash the Huge Power of Small event and nothing short of spectacular."
"Anyone who attends will take something from this presentation to inspire them to do things differently in their lives or business that positively impacts the rest of their life," Peter added.
This is an event not to be missed and thanks to generous sponsorship from local businesses including ANZ, Ballina RSL, Cool Promo, Loco Love, Paradise FM, Quadracon, QuickBooks and Somerville Laundry Lomax Solicitors it is very affordable for business owners to attend.
'REINVENT: Playing a Bigger Game' will be held at Ballina RSL on 15 March 2018 and offers two sessions. Doors open at 8.40AM and tickets include refreshments. Tickets are $49 for the morning session and $89 for the afternoon session which includes a light lunch, available from https://reinventballina.eventbrite.com or by calling Collins Hume on 02 6686 3000.
