I am a small business owner based in Australia. I started my business a little over twelve months ago and it has been a wild journey. I have learnt so much that I would have never expected when I started. There is still so much to learn!
Looking to the future
I want to use this space as a place to network and learn together with others who want to start a business or those that have started a business and need to step out of their comfort zone. I hope to be of help to those making the leap into the self-employed and business world.
Everyone sometime needs a little help, inspiration and motivation to keep taking action and what better than to do so with a community of like-minded individuals.
A little about my background
In 2010 I completed my Commerce degree with majors in Accounting and Marketing. Two very different subjects but they seemed to work nicely together for me. I am passionate about marketing and oddly accounting has just always made sense.
I have worked for a private accounting firm mostly with tax and dabbled in forensic accounting before moving onto to work in a finance role with the health department. I wasn’t happy left crunching numbers and filling in paperwork while others were out there in the ‘real world’ creating their lives and getting their hands dirty.
After some soul searching travel I went on to work in the Marketing Department of a University. This was fantastic but I wanted more, so I went to the outback to chase cattle, ride horses and was in and out of helicopters. I fell in love with the country and had always wanted to be a helicopter pilot.
This lead me to working in a remote town for a company contracted to an ore mine I worked in the office, driving the bus and loaders and working in the workshop. This was a money making exercise and fairly quickly I put it together. I came back home to become a commercial helicopter pilot. I worked in the aviation industry but discovered I loved flying but I wanted it on my terms. It took me a while, a few radical career moves and difficult bosses to build the courage and momentum to just give being my own boss a go.
Present challenges and goals
My current business in the laundry industry and I look at it as a great stepping stone to all the other things I want to achieve including help everyday people like me make the leap into action. I really feel that living is about experience and our ability to grow and learn. My true passion lies in inspiring others to step out of their comfort zone.
I really hope to be able to facilitate and encourage growth, new experiences and help you push forward ready for take off.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
Keep Bizi and all the best,
