So What Can We Do For You?

Does this sound familiar:

I didn't know where to start so I tried everything.

If it was FREE, I took it!

If it could be paid for by the Government, I took it!

I even dragged my husband, kicking and screaming to small business management training.

After many years of training and experience, studying alot in the Business and Project Management space, keeping the good stuff... I started teaching accredited courses and helping hundreds of students obtain their Business qualifications.

Problems of Small Business

One in five small businesses will fail within its first five years!

It is a sad but preventable outcome that has been repeated consistently around the world for many years.

The most common reasons for business failure include:

  • a lack of management skills, including market research, business and financial planning
  • a lack of funding to start-up and run the business, cash flow and pricing/cost issues
  • Slow or lack of ability to pivot as markets change such as; changing business plans, launching new or improving products, rebranding, changing or retraining teams, securing additional funding
Brenda

The Business Kickstart Program incorporates lessons learned from 35 years experience as a mother of four boys, small business entrepreneur, and fighting these very issues from the beginning.

In 1988, we started the family business with:

  • his stubborn desire to work for himself, to be free from a boss telling him what to do
  • a trade skill people were willing to pay for
  • friends to help spread the word
  • no money, literally! Living from pay to pay... then there was none!
  • a shed out back for him to work in and family car to get around in
  • a technology revolution in our chosen market, making our offering obsolete within months of starting
  • no business training, in fact we only had high school education and he had an incomplete trade qualification 
  • and to top off our first year in business, the country went into Recession!

I knew this was a recipe for failure so I set out to support the family business, to get as much training as I could, and quickly. I embraced the technology so we could pivot and cancelling my maternity leave to ensure we kept the roof over our heads, food on the table, and care for our baby.
